Reviewed October 17, 2012

This establishment was chosen from information and photos on the net. Unfortunately the photos did not represent the hotel accurately - and the entrance and assent to the actual Reception was awkward and foreboding. Anybody who has difficulty with steps will find this a challenge. The room was large, a/c, good cupboard space, pleasant outlook. There was no fridgem just a container that LOOKED like a fridge! The large bathroom had an impressive full -length body shower - but this needed attention, and was showing advance signs of erosion on all the jets. Towels, etc., were spotlessly clean - and changed daily. Overall, the location was good, but the accommodation was very expensive - and needs to review its charges. Would not stay there again for this reason. The staff, however, were excellent.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are larger, and better at the rear of the establishment. The front rooms could be nois...

Friendly happy staff, good restaurant. Shuttle bus driver and co-assistant very interested in our travel plans, very safe driving, excellent english by all staff. Although the Hotel is a little tired and in need of a revamp, it met all out needs whilst staying in the capital for 4 nights. Would certainly recommend Loumaile Lodge as a must place to stay.

This hotel is excellent for Tonga. The rooms were fairly clean and spacious. The location was excellent for food and grocery shopping. The staff could have been a little more knowledgable about the hotel but they were friendly. Will stay here again when next in Tonga.The only warning is a loud nightclub does operate underneath the hotel which depending on what room you get might become annoying.

Staff were friendly and very helpful. Amenities were very spacious, beds very good quality and the bathroom clean and spacious with a great shower. Breakfast - great fruit. Lobby - cathedral style ceilings with good light and comfortable lounge chairs. Hotel was a very high standard for Tonga. Location superb just near bars, eats and bazaar and outlook over grassy field and Kings Tombs was very pleasant. Highly recommend it.

My mother and i & her katoanga group stayed a whole weekend at LOUMAILE and it was absolutely beautiful. It was centrally located in the heart of Nukualofa nearest to all shops and destinations for people overseas. The service and staff were great always smiling and willing to help, the rooms and settings were immaculate, the rooms were massive and spacious and i loved the fact it had hot water all the time lol.. it was a great experience for me and the other younger girls that were there cos we could venture around kolo and never get lost and esp all the coolest night clubs were close by as well for us to enjoy and have fun.. the breakfast was absolutely delicious and yummy and the staff were friendly and professional!!.. they were always ready to wait on us and fulfill our needs, esp when we departed they organised taxis and means of transport.. they had really nice security guards that were always there to watch out for us and open the doors for us.. then to end it off they took us to black pearl suites to have a farewell dinner and that was just as beautiful and elegant, food was glorious, entertaiment was beautiful and setting was absolute breathtaking!!... MY TIME IN TONGA FOR 2012 was a blast due to my stay there and i can speak this on behalf of the whole group THANKYOU LOUMAILE FOR AN ENJOYABLE STAY AND FOR MAKING IT REMARKABLE.. cant wait to come back again...

This is without doubt the best hotel in Nukualofa. It's right in the middle of the town, is a first floor establishment oppositie the Kings Tombs.
This is as good as any hotel anywhere. Big rooms with great old style mahogany furniture, big comfortable bed, excellent shower and toilet facilities. The rooms are air-conditioned but also have an outside balcony. And the staff are fantastic.
It's a great base with town and walking at your doorstep. If you're looking at hiring a car I would wait until you have walked the area from the wharf and the main town as you don't need a car.
