At no point did we feel insecure or uncomfortable and felt so well looked after and lavished.

Best staff best rooms best breakfast. Just love this place. The most comfortable beds. I always hate leaving. Not many hotels supply razors nugget and tooth brush and paste but this one does among other things. Two pools to select from, both great with one overlooking the airport

Great choice in Port Moresby, a true oasis of comfort and safety in this very chaotic city. The manager made us feel at home, great job, and the Italian restaurant on the top was a great choice (less expensive and better food than the fancier one next to it). They even have olives if you ask for it.

This is not a bad hotel for a couple nights. The unfortunate thing is that the surrounding area is very poor. So you are basically better off staying in the resort/compound. Do not venture at night out of the hotel alone. Now as far as the hotel goes the rooms are very nice , comfortable bed , friendly staff, security... More

The Airways Hotel in POM is a secure place to stay with great staff, excellent service and great food. Room was a little old but in good condition. Food was really good with good variety. The staff were a stand out. They could not do enough for you, nothing was a problem for them. An oasis in an edgy town.

The Airways hotel in Port Moresby, PNG, as the name suggests, is close to the airport. Indeed planes taking off and landing are not only seen but heard.
