This cafe, located next door to the hotel, is a great place for simple but first-class meals. Very well-priced and the staff are really friendly. You can either sit inside in the air-conditioning or enjoy a shaded area outside. It is located in the street that runs parallel to Honiara's main street, so visitors are unlikely to stumble across it.... More

Had another fabulous holiday at the iconic King Sol, known locally amongst expats as the place to be. Famous for its hospitality with long time Australian owners Shane and Sue, who work hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They have kept the hotel to its traditional polynesian theme with tropical gardens, waterfall pool and a gym and... More

The King Sol is now quite an icon in Honiara...when first opened many years ago indeed the facilities were basic..but it was clean and comfortable ..as it is now with working TV and frig in room and a balcony above the pool. This hotel is indeed a haunt for local expats and locals alike so if you want to experience... More

After eating in both of the restaurants I was looking forward to a night staying after being in Gizo for two weeks. What a surprise. The reception is clean and staff are lovely. But the room was the surprise. It was dark, two single beds and grungy. I lifted a pillow off the bed I didn't use to find dust... More

I stayed here back in 2004 as part of the RAMSI peace keeping mission when there was lots of unrest in Honiara. There were 7 of us and we stayed at the King Solomon for 4 months so it had to be a home away from home for us. They really looked after us for most of this time. The... More

Kia orana Sue and Shane, and all the wonderful King Solomon Hotel staff for giving me a "home away from home" for my first visit to the Solomons. I stayed for 10 nights while attending the 11th Festival of Pacific Arts as part of the NZ delegation, along with 2 other delegation members and we all thoroughly enjoyed our time... More

Given the significant number of positive reviews, I can only assume that most people weren't expecting much and so their expectations were met. Unlike many travellers, who seem to rave about hanging out in the pool and drinking in the bar, I am here in Honiara for a short, but busy business-trip and did not find my stay to be... More
