Aircrew on an overnight stay, so it wasn't for long. But it's was clean tidy and we'll presented. Woke to an absolutely awesome tropical sunrise. This part of PNG seems to be much more secure which is evident by the lack of razor wire. The locals tell me that the fishing here is awesome too.

I guess for the price, this place could be alot better. It seems like a relatively new property, with nice views and in a very pretty part of the world. The food was pretty good and the service wasn't bad either. The bar area is kind of in a corner out of the way, and the rooms are basic. Not... More

Stayed for one night on a business trip June 2014. Reception and resturant staff more than helpful. Room (7/10): Double room, very spacious, clean and comfortable. Shower room pretty decent also. Amenities (5/10): Didn't check out the swimming pool. The hotel has a games room and bar area. There appeared to be some refurb work happening here. Games room is... More

We stayed at other accommodation while in Kokopo but enjoyed the services offered by Gazelle Hotel. We walked up to the hotel to find out about dining. On arrival, we were approached by a very friendly staff member who asked what he could do to help. Jackson was very knowledgeable and helped us with previewing menus. But he was most... More

We stayed at the Gazelle Hotel last weekend to attend a wedding. We have a lovely room on the first floor with an ocean view . The bed was comfortable and the room had split system air conditioner, room safe, ensuite bathroom, soft towels and very helpful housekeeping staff. The restaurant has an excellent Indian chef who cooked delicious food.... More

The coffee shop at the Gazelle International is the best spot in East New Britain for lunch (or coffee). It is great value and is far ahead of its main rival at the other end of town (which struggles with sandwiches). I have only stayed at the hotel a couple of nights - avoid Saturday nights as it is very,... More

I stayed in GI for only one night as I had to leave the other hotel I was staying due to lack of vegetarian food option. Located near the golf course, the view is serenic. The hotel is new and you can feel it. Staff, as with people of Kokopo, are friendly. I am giving it a 4 star, because... More

Recently I was in Kokopo, East New Britian PNG and stayed at the Gazelle International Hotel. The accommodation was modern, clean and adequate. The staff were pleasent. The restaurant provides reasonable food particularly seafood including lobster. As with most PNG's restaurants the wine list is appalling and what you can get, is expensive. The accommodation cost is reasonable value for... More

We stayed here three nights over a weekend. Some things went awry as happens in PNG, but the restaurant food was wonderful. The hotel is new and clean; it only opened about 12 months ago.. The Gazelle International is located on the edge of the town of Kokopo, capital of East New Britain Province since the 1994 Volcano Eruption largely... More
