Had to find alternative accommodation quickly and Moorings was ideal for what I required. Had a pleasant stay, room very small but contained all that I needed. Cleaning service was excellent. Staff always smiling, breakfast included (tropical) which was filling. Meals reasonably prices but pot luck if good or not. I would stay here again if need be.

Dear Luka S, Thank you for your review of Moorings Hotel. We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. We would also love to provide more furniture but our rooms do not allow for it much to our regret. The hotel was originally designed cosy and thus we must maintain a certain freedom of movement in-room...

My mum and I stay here for a week after Christmas. The room was clean and spacious and the hotel staff incredibly friendly and happy. Easy walk to main areas. Great views of bay and sunsets.

We stayed in Port Vila after returning from a trip to Tanna. I was part of a large group of 17 people and we were easily catered for at this venue. The room that we were allocated was on the lower floor, small but tidy. The shower and toilet were separated from each other in the room which was very...

Great place, good location, comfy and well decorated rooms. Breakfast was great and staff were amazing. Wifi in rooms (for free) and complimentary pool table would be nice but otherwise great. Restaurant was reasonably priced for lunch and dinner. Would definitely recommend.
