Nice hotel, good food, right by the golf course and with a small but nice pool. The staff was very helpful and attentive. Good for business trips. It has a club and a hair salon as well and complimentary wifi.

I spent 5 nights here last week on business. I don't generally have great expectations when travelling in PNG so was pleasantly suprised by the overall standard of the hotel and by the attentive service of the staff. The food is EXCELLENT!

Staff very helpful and friendly. But some need more training in customer service. Food is very nice and tasty, make sure you give yourself plenty of time at meal times as things are a bit slow. A good place to stay.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay. The absence of a lift within the hotel is mainly due to East New Britain being an earthquake prone region therefore when the hotel was constructed emphasis was placed on a staircase rather than a lift. For the last few months we have experienced extremely poor internet service and phone outage due... More

I've been here many times and kept coming back because of the superior food. Last night I was here again. Peruvian Ceviche is a must from the menu, as well as carpaccio. We had grilled steaks which were delicious. The servers are sometimes lacking but that never blurs the experience.

Went there with 3 other friends during a leisure trip - dropped in for lunch. Delicious freshly made food, excellent service, fabulous verandah location in a cool breeze, and average market prices. Really enjoyed our lunch and didn't want to leave. Had a look around the resort and wished I had stayed here instead of the Rabaul Hotel.

The room was clean, the staff was exceptional especially the food and beverage staff. The chef is from Portugal with a flair for speciality foods with a twist. The front desk staff was not always informed but aimed to please. The tours were not true for the advertisement and they offered prices and they were higher prices for Americans and... More

Located at the edge of one of PNG's more renowned golf courses, the Gazelle has beautiful views accriss Blanche Bay to the Tavurvur volcano. The rooms are clean and spacious but the cheap Asian fittings - while perhaps a great/cheap idea urging planning & construction - are really now showing their worth. The building itself is quaint and stylish for... More

Gazelle international offers discounted price this Xmas. An ideal place to spend your location. Food is good too. It is also located on the old site belonging to Queen Emma. Those wishing to see the Mask festival would prefer Gazelle International Hotel because of its close vicinity to the show grounds and golf fields.
