Everything clean and comfortable if slightly dated. Staff very good. The buffet was very good as well (I usually had four plates worth of food every time) and the ambience at the outside dining area, pool and bar were spot on. The hotel was quite busy. Finally, I felt very safe and secure, which is important for Port Moresby.

This was my first stay at Holiday Inn in Port Moresby. I used the Hotel due to the reputation of IHG brand and certain expectations from other stays in Holiday Inss (e.g. Sydney).

I stay here reasonably regularly for periods up to two weeks at a time. The rooms have been updated since I first visited in 2003/05. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. The restaurant is great and provides a wide variety of choices including a buffet. The bar out the back is good, but the seating could be a... More

My daughter & I stayed for 2 nights, the beginning and ending of a Kokoda Track expedition. The rooms we had, while different each time, were adequate for our needs. It is a long hike though from the front reception to the far end of the rooms on the second or first floor. No lifts that we could find. Rooms... More

When you're doing an assignment in Papua New Guinea (PNG) you need to feel secure and well looked after to operate at your optimum. This was achieved in the Holiday Inn in Port Moresby and the attention you get from the staff is second to none - especially by Winnie in the restaurant and Tina at reception. Both ladies go...

Could be better I stayed at the Holiday Inn in the hotel section (they also have self-contained apartments) for a couple of weeks. I have stayed at other Holiday Inns elsewhere in the World and this one is probably a little below the average I have experienced elsewhere. There are some good things to say about this Hotel.

I have stayed here a number of times. The place is ok and the restaurant is good. The staff are average. The rooms are very old and the new ones are small. The place is not very well organised but its location is pretty good. This place is 100 times better than crown plaza and the food is quiet good.
