I had to surprise someone from Papua New Guinea all the way from the Philippines. I had the pleasure of working with Cecile who readily and willingly answered all my questions and ensured a good customer experience. She was patient with me and polite. She even personally delivered the items I order to the one I had to surprise. Thank you Cecile and Shady Rest Hotel!

We had the pleasure of Cellar Restaraunt providing our brunch to celebrate PNG's 45th Independence Day on the day before actual independence day (16th Sept 2020. )We greatly enjoyed the food supplied by the Cellar Restaraunt at the Shady Rest Hotel. Nicely prepared. The Red Velvet cake was to die for - not too sweet but just perfectly right.

Love the pizza! If you are in Port Moresby, be sure to pass by. The pizza takes 10 minutes or less, it’s fresh and the staff are very friendly . A place that you have to visit! I ordered pizza from there a couple of times and they never disappoint

My first trip to Port Moresby, and just an overnight stay but I needn't have worried. Felt very secure at The Shady Rest (behind high gates, with security guards...) the room seemed fine, and all the staff were unfailingly polite and helpful. If you're worried about security and concerned about the high accommodation prices in Port Moresby, my advice would be to book in at Shady Rest for a nice, affordable stay. If I'm ever travelling this way again, I'd definitely go back to The Shady Rest (was sorry to miss the Indian restaurant ... next time)
