Really nice hotel for the place. Room was spacious, cool, well appointed, nice view. Food and beverage in bar and restaurant fine. Okay, it was Friday night with live music out by the pool which got progressively louder, added attraction was karaoke during band time outs, in fairness it did stop at 10pm and it was Friday night. However than... More

I like the house front & Restaurant is very good but expensive. Rooms are very poorly maintained. Be aware of brownish hot water. Though I had a confirmed booking I had to wait until 3pm to check Inn.

After reading TripAdvisor reviews and on the recommendation of our travel agent we chose to stay in a sea view east room at this hotel. It is located in the city right next to the dive shop, craft centre, the stunning Breakwater cafe and close to the central market. Our room was very modern, clean and well appointed with a... More

Pay extra to be in the East wing (lwhich doesn't have wifi, only ethernet..). Expensive hotel for what you get (cleaning and service isn't the best..). Go to little snacks around for breakfast, cheaper and better than the buffet proposed by the hotel.

I stayed at the Mendana Hotel recently during a work visit to Honiara. The hotel is centrally located in Honiara and overlooks the water. My room was in the Garden Wing and was basic. The room was airy and the air conditioning worked. Of the two beds, the double bed was very firm wih no give at all and the... More

Make sure you book the rooms in the "new" wing. The first room that I got had a severe rodent problem. The staff did not seemed surprised when I requested a new room, which of course, costs more. My new rodent free room in the "new" is ok. This is not a great hotel, however. I mean, it is fine,... More

I have stayed at the Solomon Kitano Mendano Hotel twice, but am writing a review for the first time. Its rates are just at the maximum for many business travelers' allowances, (and these are by no means budget rates), so it does a good business and is sometimes booked full. Yet both times I have been there I had a... More

I had completed a dive trip to Munda Island ( separate review) and was returning to Fiji via Honiara. Our agent booked us into this hotel as an overnight stay. This was supposed to be a very good hotel for Honiara, which says a little about Honiara in general. When we arrived in the evening the hotel looked very nice... More

Ideal retreat away from reality. Excellent value, friendly and professional service island style. Loved everything about the place. Nice rooms, comfy bed, the food was a real treat. Would def' recommend to anyone.
