A hotel that was in its colonial styled prime probably in the 60's...architecturally beautiful but tired and showing signs of wear. It seems to be a very hard working hotel that covers its costs but has little left for renovation - but they are slowly working through it, new air con units going in, gardens being re-done, we saw maintenance...

My stay here was full of issues. Room was ordinary, towels threadbare, air conditioner didn't work, carpets very old and it took 2 days to eventually get moved to a room where the air conditioner worked. Staff were friendly just not able to assist quickly enough.

Stayed there for a week, just seemed longer. Breakfast was minimal at best and you had to fight the birds off from picking at the bread inside the restaurant & swat away the insects off the fruit. Service next to non existent. I put laundry in one morning, that night I was trying to find out where it was. After... More

When we travel, I always look for a good bargain. This hotel official rates were +- 15000 PCF, but using an hotel reservation web site we got it for less than 8000 per night. What can I say, we read all the reviews good and bad and decided to book the Surf for our short 3 nights stay in Noumea.... More

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights only (weekend break) Staff is friendly and always willing to help in their manner (not always professional but ok). Nice diner buffet with dancing shows. Nice balcony with great view over the lagoon. Just lovely. Awesome location as it's next to Lemon Bay nightlife and next to reputable restaurants. But... Bad internet connection... More

Dear Clemtrave, We are delighted to learn that you appreciated your stay within our house and in particular our sideboards(buffets) as well as the magnificent view on the lagoon since your room. It is true that our private parking lot is limited in number of place and that locations outside are to be shared with the Casino. Looking forward to... More

First of all, the room smelled so bad that I spent half my only night there having the balcony door and the hallway doors open to ventilate the room and trying to get rid of the musty smell. The room was very old and outdated. The towels were gross as well as the bathroom. The sheets were relatively clean. The... More

Hotel Le Surf is a hotel with many contradictions. Many of the criticisms in other reviews are valid but there is also much to recommend at the Hotel. Having just stayed there as part of a group for 7 days utilising 7 rooms I think I am in a good position to provide a balanced review. I have rated the... More
