I stayed in the serviced apartments which are almost brand new. Big TV in lounge and TV in bedroom (although the set top box lights are a bit bright!) Kitchen is normal size and enough to cook. Very nice grounds to walk around and very comprehensive gym which is used by locals (has classes as well) which shows how good... More

Port Moresby's best hotel (and we have tried a few) offers suites for long stay guests that are brand new and the height of comfort. We had modern and spacious apartment with balcony overlooking the pool. When we have had any troubles (not matter how small) Tim and his team have responded quickly and got the problem fixed. The pool,... More

This hotel has potential, but in my opinion it is overprized and has lots of room for improvement. Nice pool and restaurant, but the room décor is old and not well kept. The bathroom had a used bar of soap in it!

Stayed at the Holiday Inn in mid November 2014 - as part of the base used by trekkers who trek Kokoda with the "No Roads" tour company. The hotel has all you need when being used for a few days. The buffet for dinner is of a good PNG standard (70 Kina). Breakfast buffet is also more than acceptable. Agree... More

It's been a while since I last stayed here and the hotel had been refurbished and much improved. The main thing I like about this hotel is that it is set in gardens with a large pool and plenty of space to wander around and find a quiet spot but still feel secure because of the security. The rooms are... More

The hotel is old but well maintained and clean. The Wi-Fi was the best of the 4 hotels I have stayed at in Port Moresby and it is free if you are a member of their club.

I did stay at Holiday In on several occasions. Great food and service in cafeteria or dinning bur room service needs improvement. Bathroom shower needs repairs. Await their new rooms or apartment opening. Quite and much better than Noisy Laman a Hotel.

The Holiday Inn is a typical hotel one can stay comfortably when in a city one does not want to be. I was there on a stopover from Australia to Mount Hagen in the Western Highlands of Papua New Guinea. The Inn is comfortable for an o/n stay, but - like everything in Port Moresby - hopelessly overpriced. The restaurant... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, one on each side of the kokoda track. Like the gateway hotel, this is expensive for what it is...nearly $300 but the standard of a motel type ($70) hotel in Canada. Overall it's worn but is a comfortable stay.
