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

We came to Kokopo, PNG for a six day stay. The Gazelle International is in an excellent position, overlooking the ocean and within walking distance of the main shopping and markets. It is a very secure motel, with security gates and 24 hour reception. Upon arrival we were greeted by staff who promptly checked us in and took our bags... More

This was a short trip to Rabul only staying in this hotel for a night but it was very nice with fantastic staff. My room overlooked the Volcano and the Harbour. It is about as close to you will get to the town and from the other hotels I noticed in the area by far the best. It has very... More

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
