We stayed there because we wanted to be right next to the mask festival, which literally next door ! The food was great and it was good place to stay at with family before going out and exploring the rest of Kokopo, Rabaul and East New Britain Province.

Food better than the other hotels, staff presentable and friendly. Considering this hotel is in a developing country they are on top of their game. Pool side is not used but it's a great place for dining without lots of people around. If you want air conditioning the restaurant is the perfect place and if it's pool or dancing then... More

We decided to have a quick dinner in the international hotel because it is situated very close to the festival that we were in kokopo to attend. We wished we hadnt. We sat down in the empty and lifeless dining hall and placed our order. After half an hour we were told that they didnt have half of the food... More

I have stayed here a few times when travelling to New Britain Island and have found the people, food and accommodation to be exceptional. The hotel manager at times has asked if he could join us during meal time and even shouted rounds of drinks. The chef is brilliant and was very catering to my vegan needs. The food was... More

I stayed at the Gazelle International on a business trip. The room was great, food was great and the service was great. I have a beautiful view of the ocean, best of all I could see the volcano smoking away across the bay. I have never seen a volcano before, and it was awesome. The hotel is very modern and... More

I truly LOVED my experience staying there! Great hospitality the 'Tolai' way! Solomon the Airport shuttle driver is very courteous, attentive and resourceful! A great asset to the hotel. The GM is still the most impressive person mostly coming from his many years experience working in the Hotel Industry. The new look night club downstairs play very loud local and... More

If you think "international" = charmless and without soul and if you think "all day" = "only at certain times", this is the place to come. I write this at 10:15 in a restaurant that is completely empty. I've just ordered the "all day breakfast" and the waitress has informed me that "all day" finishes at 10am. Of course, I... More

Very open plan modern hotel with beautiful views of the harbour & volcano. Staff could not do enough for me, very friendly & easy to talk to. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent & good value. The pool was lovely to swim in at the end of hot day. A great hotel. A snack vending machine would... More

This hotel has to be one of the great "finds" of our travels. The rooms are comfortable and well presented, the staff are friendly and can't do enough for you, and the food is excellent. Rodney the Manager organised some great trips, and Jackson was a great guide. The hotel car was available for trips into town for a very... More
