Located at the edge of one of PNG's more renowned golf courses, the Gazelle has beautiful views accriss Blanche Bay to the Tavurvur volcano. The rooms are clean and spacious but the cheap Asian fittings - while perhaps a great/cheap idea urging planning & construction - are really now showing their worth. The building itself is quaint and stylish for... More

Gazelle international offers discounted price this Xmas. An ideal place to spend your location. Food is good too. It is also located on the old site belonging to Queen Emma. Those wishing to see the Mask festival would prefer Gazelle International Hotel because of its close vicinity to the show grounds and golf fields.

We stopped for lunch in emma's restaurant while on a tour with a small group of 8 people. I thought this would be a good opportunity to sample some local fish but I was very wrong. To put it simply, the food was terrible and I couldn't eat it. I travel a lot and I would rate this as the... More

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
