Being the Classic Travel Lodge ‘all in the one building’ style the CP has a lot to offer to those who do not want to walk around too much. Also having dined here a lot before I ever stayed, the food has a reliable good to excellent standard that has never let me down… In general, pretty much everything you... More

Whilst the hotel is a little dated and one of the older hotels in Port Moresby the friendly staff and team really make sure you are well looked after. Rooms are good size, well maintained, clean and tidy and have character given the age of the hotel. We love Crowne Plaza hotels and the IHG recognition they give you as... More

I first stayed at the Crowne Plaza when it was a Travelodge in 1988. Nothing much has changed and in the intervening years I have likely stayed 10 times when a client pays. The rooms are clean and once it was a haven of peace in POM in the bad old days but now Moresby is civilised. There are good... More

This is a fine but very expensive hotel as expected from Crowne Plaza, but it feels like you are in a luxury jail. We were discouraged to leave the compound, but found a great place to eat across the street. Try Tasty Bites.

I stayed in the Crowne for 4 nights during a recent conference. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times, although generally service times were a bit longer than I might have expected in a 4 star hotel - this might simply have been the fact that the hotel was busy with the conference. Rooms were a reasonable size... More

I stayed here for 5 days for a conference and found the hotel to be well appointed. The mini bar was empty, but you can ask for items on demand. The view over the bay was nice, especially at sunrise.

The Crowne Plaza in POM is a hit and miss affair. Never sure what you'll get, depends on whose in the kitchen. Value is not on the menu. Drinks are expensive. There are better, more reliable places to eat and drink in POM.
