If you are looking for a place that will bed you comfortably in clean, spacious rooms, this place will make you happy. Location is perfect - on the foreshore and a walk into the business area or up to the docks or down to the Palace - and I slept like a baby every night. It may have remained just... More

We stayed at this property in September 2016 and it was not at all the "boutique hotel" advertised. As my wife and I have traveled to over 200 countries in the world we are used to all kinds of accommodations. But the worst part about this property is that the power and water and paid WiFi went out for hours,... More

Extremely noisy (52 dB) room located immediately above a noisy generator or air con unit - intermittent noise throughout night. Absolutely unacceptable when nighttime noise levels shd be around 30 dB. DO NOT ACCEPT THIS ROOM IF OFFERED (unless you have a set of industrial strength ear plugs!)

We stayed here for 2 weeks due to a series of conferences! If anyone has been to China they would see this hotel as a typical small town Chinese hotel. Literally every part of this hotel is from China, the décor, the fittings, the toilet paper even every single item, even the TV has about 15 Chinese channels, my wife... More

Large rooms and great Chinese restaurant. Seafront hotel with very helpful manager, sketchy wi fi but better than the other local hotels. About 30 mins from the airport and walking distance to town centre. Better to call than rely on Expedia etc

We stayed here for a week, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is very close to town making walking distance to restaurants and the warf for day trips no problem at all. If possible I would highly recommend booking a room with a balcony and sea views. Staff were incredibly helpful,friendly and did everything they could to make our... More

Travelled here to Tonga to perform for the Kings mothers birthday Queen Halaevalu. Beautiful big rooms, huge Super King beds. It was abit musty in some of the rooms downstairs than the ones upstairs as our group almost had the whole motel we could compare. Front rooms by far the best great quality and wonderful view. Staff are wonderful and... More

stayed here as part of a humanitarian surgical team visit so was not by choice. But after staying here for two weeks, it is now the only place I would consider staying on Tongatapu!. It became our home away from home and it is the staff across all areas, who made it thus. First impressions (at 3am in the morning... More

The location is good. The information is just next door. The room (No. 248) was ocean view. and I appreciate the extension of check out time until 13.30 without extra. but there were some problems to be improved as shown below. 1. There was no bath tub. All rooms don't furnish it. 2. There was no elevator (even there were... More

We booked 3 months in advance, the complementary taxi from the airport was 20 minutes late. We were the last people waiting at the airport at 8pm. The taxi took us without warning to another of the owners different hotels, the Meida, because there was apparently no room. We were all 4 packed into one room. Unpleasant & embarrassing standoff...
