Great views from all balconies. Rooms need a bit of attention to cleaning and fixtures but all public areas were very very clean. The food at dinner time was fantastic, we ate here 4 or 5 times, room service not so good, breakfast was average. Check in time was really bad, arrived 15 mins before check in and had to... More

Stayed at the Grand Hotel in late July 2014. The location was excellent and walking distance to town and all the shopping and restaurant you need. The rooms were large and comfortable with nice hot showers after a long day out touring the island. The buffet breakfast was excellent and plenty of variety, juices, cereals, bacon, eggs, sausages, toast, island... More

If you are wanting to be in the thick of things this is the place to stay. Right in town so you can walk to all the restaurants and bars. Rooms all have a water view with glorious sunsets looking towards Iririki Is. Rooms were nice though the air con is fairly non-existent - a constant 25 really and that... More

My husband and I stayed here in June this year. We found it to be an excellent choice. It seems that all rooms have an excellent view of the harbour, are clean and comfortable. The shower was hot and had good water pressure. The buffet breakfast had a good variety of bakery products, cereals, fruits, juices and hot food, with... More

Is a good choice if you just want to walk out the front door, the hotel rooms are very comfortable and in good condition. The views are fantastic and are probably the best in town. The restaurant was a let down, not alot of service and the manager smelt of cigarettes every time we where there.

A nice size hotel in a very convenient spot, but a 'boutique' casino. The games room had a bit of everything and a lovely room to look at - but would be the smallest I have been to. The food was good, staff friendly (and local - not transient workers from Europe, etc., which kept the authenticity). Because it is... More
