Stayed for a few days in winter. The Hotel is definitely on a grand scale and lots of work is happening to make it grander and to shore up the service and facilities. The new management couple Graeme and Carmel are making a huge difference. The rooms are large, clean and tidy, have a/c and the hot water is worth... More

After staying at various establishments throughout Tongatapu, this definitely outshines the rest, if you are looking for a modern feel, clean and well presented hotel. Don't be fooled by the poor condition on the exterior walls when you arrive! The managers and staff did a great job and helped us out with anything we needed help with. All very friendly... More

Has a lunch stop here while sightseeing. Tidy and clean and air-conditioned. Food was simple fair but nicely cooked and presented. Prices were at the high end for Tonga. Nice place for a stop away form the heat and humidity.

Loved the fact that this hotel is close to the airport. The staff were very friendly and very accommodating once they were engaged on a more personal level. It was great learning about Tonga and its culture from the staff. The food was very good although I personally would have liked a bit more of the local cuisine available. Never-the-less... More
