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 review from owner of Room with a view. Andrea booked one double room through my website which is written specifically that its cost is 5,600VT. Still, I give a special price (5,000VT for two people) even for the people who made a reservation through my website. Also, I thought Andrea is a couple, but I realized the reservation was... 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

Lovely breakfast, flaky croissant,fresh fruit, scrambled egg,toast fresh coffee on the spacious deck with wide views over the harbour was the highlight of our stay at Room with a View. Justine, the owner was really helpful , getting up to secure us a Taxi at 5am for an early flight. Overall this place was great value for the money.

The place and the lady that runs it, is quite quirky, but this made us smile. She also kindly looked after our bags for a few days for no extra cost. Location Close to town - 5-10 min walk.
