Am a repeat visitor over several years - largely due to location and growing familiarity with the advantages and disadvantages of the hotel. It is aged but with incremental renovations taking place so a bit hit and miss on the state of the rooms - hit = recently renovated rooms (Seaview rooms currently been redressed and my usual choice because of the Bumblebee Internet connection actually works here), miss = garden view and tired, dimly lit rooms. The rooms are spacious though, TVs work as does the aircon and bathroom are cleaned well but they are tired looking and only basic toiletries provided. The Executive rooms are the way to go, well appointed, fabulous lookout over Ironbottom sound and a great tub! The staff are a big plus - friendly and helpful and remember you after the first visit. The hotel-airport shuffle (SBD60 or approx US$10) is great and convienient. Hotel location is really handy to central town services and the lobby plus seaview alfresco bar area is a favourite meeting place. You cannot buy Bumblee Internet cards at the hotel shop though - purchase at telecom 5 mins stroll away (closes at 4.30pm), not cheap with SBD50 for 2 hour cards which you have to use all in one go or the better bargain of a 7 day or 250Mb capacity for SB$250. Food? Buffet on Wednesday nights great, chips come with everything though and a lunchtime fave, I've changed from the Lime Lounge to Bamboo Bar (near King Solomon Hotel). Solid na!
