The lobby area of this hotel opens to covered, but open seating in comfortable chairs around tables where guests congregated to have a drink, talk, read, and relax. The "path" to my room was a seies of ascending a de descending stairways and ramps. The room was basic and not in the best condition. Air conditioning was very weak. Loud... More

This is a decent, average hotel in Honiara. I have stayed there twice, on my way to smaller islands in the country. Rooms are spacious, but one of them was smelling like cigarettes, even though I asked for a non-smoking room. The hotel does not have elevators, and has a lot of stairs, which was a bit complicated for us,... More

We had the misfortune of spending 3 nights in this hotel. On our first visit, the air conditioning and toilet were not working in our room. There were no elevators, but staff helped to carry up our heavy luggage. The public restrooms were pathetic and never had any paper towels or any way of drying hands. Service in the restaurant...

Our local friends advised us the buffet on a Wednesday night was a must while in Honiara , they were not wrong ! You must book in advance and you will find your reservation name printed on your designated table. Seems this is a local favorite as many families use this as their weekly night out, at 1845 they are... More

I didn't stay at the hotel, but had friends staying there while I was visiting. Lovely restaurants, the pool was in desperate need of maintenance/renovation and I wouldn't have swum in it. The grounds and rooms were very well maintained, the lobby was very welcoming as were the staff.

My husband and I went to Solomon Islands to dive and explore the World War 2 history. We were on our honeymoon and very excited to travel and see the country. The moment we were dropped off at the hotel, the energy was very off putting. Everyone stared at us, no one helped us with our baggage, and when we... More

I have stayed at this Hotel 3 times over the last couple of months on business. Last stay was a refurbished room which was very nice (Few and far between). The prior 2 stays involved rooms that had not seen a good clean in 20 years or more. I have never seen mould in a shower like I had to... More

Conveniently situated in downtown Honiara, it's an ideal place for a few days' stay. There is a good choice of dining facilities including 2 restaurants and a terrace cafe. You may alternate between breakfast in the open air restaurant and snack by the pool, or choose between a light dinner in the terrace cafe and more formal dining in the... More

The Capitana restaurant is well known throughout Honiara for its excellent Wednesday evening buffets. Booking is a must as it is booked -out every week. The selection of food is excellent and quality and quantity first class. Make sure you arrive by seven to get the best choice of food. Other evenings there is a good selection of bistro style...
