“great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

The hotel is near the airstrip and consists of a row of good equipped and clean bungalows with view to the lagoon and some other accommodation in second row. Room rates were from 100 (no TV, no AC) to 140 AUD, very good veranda-restaurant with meals around 30 AUD. There is a hotel boat running once or twice a week to Gizo for AUD 70 per person, this is good value, all other excursions (lagoon etc.) are starting around 200 AUD/half day and only worth considering if you are in a group.

This is really the only option for accommodation in Munda unless you want to go homestay. The place is right on the water, the dive shop is contained in the lodge as well as a restaurant that has quite good food and does sell wine/alcohol. It really is a stop over point to get to other islands or if you want to dive. There is a WW2 'museum' about 30 minutes walk away which is very interesting. The food is relatively good, the staff are friendly and it appears to be a fairly safe spot to stay.

Room Tip: Try and get rooms at the back of the lodge, they have been upgraded.

Chances are that if you're going to stay in Munda, you're going to stay at Agnes Lodge. It's almost the only option in town. (There is a small budget-only option across the road, but it's not as big or famous as Agnes'.) Agnes Lodge is a nice place with many different room options available - shared facilities to private little bungalows. There is a restaurant/bar where most of the guests eat almost every meal - not many other options around. The down sides might be that some of the options (rooming & food) can be quite expensive. But, when you're the only game in town, you can probably set your own prices. The shared facilities were clean. Personally, I didn't like the lack of mosquito nets for the beds as I had a few mozies in my room at night which was annoying. There are screens on the windows but that never seems to keep them all out. The staff were very friendly and helpful - especially when Solomon Airlines cancelled my flight and I had to spend an extra night. The wi-fi was pretty good and reliable.

Arrived this afternoon and had a really lovely swim. Went to the restaurant, waited an hour and a half for my fish of the day. We were the only people in the restaurant. When it arrived it was the worst meal I have ever been served. They refunded the cost. However we were not offered a replacement meal so therefore didn't eat. Outside our room there is a group of men partying and it is now 11pm. We left Sydney at 6am this morning. Not happy. Do I go out and ask them if they could quieter down in consideration of the other guests. Even worse is that they are not even staying at Agnes's but staying in a luxurious cruiser just moored of the shore where their wives are peacefully sleeping. Was really looking forward to this trip but has been spoiled by a few selfish men.

Room Tip: Not near the restaurant or bar

The restaurant has nice food, cheap alcohol and a great view of the lagoon and all the incoming and departing boats. The rooms are basic, but the shared bathrooms (some have your own) have hot water, which is a big +!

We recently stayed here one night after getting stuck when our boat connection was delayed. We were very grateful as originally they were booked out and we were stranded. Rooms are comfortable and clean and food good. Great cold jugs of beer went down very well.

I stayed at Agnes lodge in mid-june 2012. I thought it was great. The staff, restaurant, and bar were all very good. Munda is off the beaten track and this hotel does a great job to make customers feel at home and comfortable.
