This is a great spot to stay when in Port Villa. Bob and Emily went out of their way to make us feel welcome and offered great advice / help on where and what to do while in Vanuatu, it was much appreciated. The rooms were excellent and great value. We also enjoyed Emily's restaurant with it's laid-back, extremely friendly... More

Bob as usual is a font of local knowledge. Rooms clean and well kept. As a single traveler very cost effective for Vanuatu. Close to all major facilities that I needed to visit. Easy to get too as on a main road. Staff always helpful. Washing done as part of the deal at no extra cost for longer term travellers.... More

Was booked there for 4 nights. Left following the first night in a windowless noisy room after the Manager Bob barked at me first thing in the morning "where is my money?".

I stayed for 1 week and was on a very tight budget. Bob, Emily and the other staff are great and do everything possible to help you out and give you information, even to the extent I was given a cash advance until I could access money. Rooms are spotless, as are the bathrooms. Good food at a great price.... More

Working for an NGO, a few days after the storm, we settled at Bob and Emily's. They discounted the price by 50% due to the situation and were more than helpful. They linked up with suppliers, stored some relief items free of charge, found great vehicle. We stayed there a week and all was made to accommodate our needs and... More

I had the pleasure of being in Vanuatu for a Conference. We stayed at the Hotel and I found that the staff were very friendly and it was a pleasure to draw on Bob's knowledge and recommendations for places to visit. The food was delicious and there was lots of it.

I stayed here for 8 days while at a nearby conference. The food was good and the beer was cold . Bob and Emily were good hosts and very helpful with arranging travel around the island and local advise. I had brought a mosquito net but never needed to use it. Hotel was very close to the centre of town... More
