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.

Stayed several times at this hotel. The first two stays were awful due to wrong room selection! The old west garden or the sea view west garden have LOADS of bugs; suffered from rashes in those rooms. But then I stayed at the sea view east room (the new type), it was very pleasant and cozy. The room is clean.... More

Very central and with a great sea view, this was a good base for my work and my wife's relaxation. A good general restaurant and an interesting Japanese one, we dined well and not too expensively. Defintely recommended

Stayed at the Kitano Mendana hotel recently for 3 nights. The hotel is in the middle of town, located across the road from the war museum. We had a pleasant stay, the room was nice. The staff are friendly enough although they seem a bit muddled at times and not too sure what they are doing. When we asked for... More

The Mendana is regarded as being one of the a "luxury" hotels in the Solomon Islands. Located across the main road (scene of Honiara's all day traffic gridlock) from the Police Station and the National Museum it sprawls along the waterfront. This post colonial style of a Pacific style resort is built in a series of concrete block buildings. Seems... More

I have stayed here for work 4 times over the past few years. The hotel is located right on the Marovo Sound, and in the middle of town, so it's in a prime spot. I have stayed in the old wing rooms, which are terrible, and the new wing rooms which are great and well-equipped. Internet connectivity in both types... More

I came here as part of a work trip and had a great stay. It is a very well maintained, chilled out, beautiful place. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms are amazing. There are two restaurants with plenty of meals to choose, a bar by the pool and location is great just metres away from museum, shops, supermarkets...and not... More

Stayed here for a few months-August to December 2013. If you get the renovated rooms facing the sea then you are on to a winner. Unfortunately all rooms have not been done as yet . The rooms are a good size and well done. The WC did pose a problem once a fortnight. The staff are friendly , service is... More

We stayed in the Solomon Kitano Mendana Hotel for 7 nights while diving the wrecks of the Solomons. The rooms were clean and tidy with aircon and bathrooms that all worked. The hotel is also located in Honiara which is good as you can walk to everything you need such as local bars, ATMs, restaurants,etc. The Hotel restaurant was a... More
