Great and friendly host and staff. They even stored our big bags free of charge between stays as we travelled to other islands. Good room size that include a kitchenette - though the bathrooms were quite dated. Free wifi that worked in the rooms as well as an amazing breakfast included in the price of your stay (the best croissants... More

Welcoming host, pleasant surroundings and walking distance to downtown and cafes. Breakfast on balcony overlooking the water which made for a very pleasant way to start the day. Booking island experiences done through the reception and airport taxi was arranged through the office after we had the not so good experience of the taxi we booked ourselves not showing. One...

I stayed there for one week and had a wonderful time. The view - as the name says - is magnificent, the ower is very nice and the breakfast is the best start of the day that you can have. Papaya, banana, pomelo and the best: a suoer fresh and tasty croissant, just like in France! The rooms are clean... More

I stayed a few days in this nice guesthouse, at the beginning and at the end of a trip to Vanuatu. Very good value for the money, specially if you travel on a budget but want to stay in a nice place. It is a colonial house centrally located in Port Vila, but in a relatively quiet area (though there... More

We stayed there for five nights and totally loved it. Justine the host is really nice and always around for a chat. Room was neat and clean, although the humid weather makes the bathroom smells weird.. Nice view of the bay on the veranda. Breakfast with lots of tropical fruits, bread and eggs. Will stay there next time I'm around.

Justine's guest house has a verandah with a stunning view where guests have the best breakfast in Port Vila - croissant, fruit, eggs -MMMH! It's a short walk to the town where there is a great selection of restaurants and shops.

We stayed at Room with a View for several days. We wanted a handy place - definitely NOT luxurious or resort-y - to stay in at Port Vila, from which we ventured out on trips to other places. The owner, Justine, is an interesting, kind, person. She and her family are from Korea and have lived in Port Vila for... More

This place is cheap, fairly well-located (a 5-10min walk from the jetty to Iririki, etc) and was pretty clean if not cosy. The breakfast was decent although nothing special - fruit and some uninspiring pastries/cheese. We'd booked a room for two of us at a rate of 5000VT. Once we'd arrived and stayed a night, it turned out we had... More

Written in June 2013 during our stay; submitted November 2013 Room with a View is a great choice for budget accommodation in Port Vila. At a standard rate of no more than about 5,000VT/night, it is one of the least expensive accommodations in Port Vila. As a budget motel, you should not expect 5-star luxury. The room looks a little... More

Justine the owner is a kind and helpful woman. I left a jacket in the room and she drove after us to the airport. iJustine seems to be more concerned with providing a service than making a profit. The accommodation in the room is basic, but who spends time in the room? The situation is perfect, convenient for catching buses... More
