Fantastic service, very good facilities and lovely attentive staff. It's expensive - but everywhere in Port Moresby is expensive. Breakfast overlooking the highlands and airport was a highlight. It's about 20 mins from town but the hotel can arrange transport to and fro. You at least get to see the city a bit more which I thought was worth the... More

I stayed here for business and was upgraded to a suite -which was sweet! Nice sitting area and large bathroom. The food at Bacchus was the best I had in Port Moresby - besides the omelet at the Crown Plaza. It was gourmet for sure. The buffet at the rooftop restaurant wasn't that great - not a ton of variety.... More

Just spent a few days in PNG on a layover on my way to Brisbane. I felt at home with some of the attempts at Indian food but enjoyed it most when I was exposed to the National staff at the hotel who were very accommodating and kind. The food is a bit bland and the hotel has adopted a... More

This is one the better hotels in Port Moresby. It is close to the airport but far from any other place. The rooms are generally good, the restaurant is above average but the steak house Baccus is way too expensive for average food it serves.

Hello Drtravell007 Thank you for your comments. You are right that our hotel is very close to the airport however the distance to the city centre is not that far considering in some of the cities you have to travel 1 hour or so to get to the hotel. We can provide transport to the city and back. Bacchus is... More

This hotel overlooks the runways of the airport of Port Moresby which was one of the most comfortable airports that we have visited in the South Pacific. Our huge and comfortably furnished room was a bit awkward with the bed in an upper loft and the bath downstairs. The room was more like a condo than a hotel room. The... More

The Airways has some great aspects to it. For Port Moresby the price is a little higher than others, but it is probably the best hotel in the area. Lots of choices on rooms, the Bachus rooms are the cheapest and in the older part of the hotel – the aircon didn’t work for me when I first went to... More

Recently stayed at the Airways that has gone through a refurbishment - unfortunately the cuisine was far better before the improvements. The old style Melanesian Airways was far better and the food had a Papua New Guinean slant with great pork and seafood dishes. These days are long gone and have been replaced with a bland airport style that will... More

Although comparatively high priced Airways is by far and away the most comfortable stopover I've had on any business trip. Rooms are very large with separate living spaces. Additionally there is a work space with room to spread out. The staff here are also very friendly and helpful and service the rooms once a day. My room and living space... More

Having traveled to parts of PNG for years I was recommended the Airways Hotel in Port Moresby. I have not been disappointed with the rooms, service and security. They have a loyalty system, in return I have been upgraded a several times which is always a pleasant surprise.
