I stayed at Traveller's for 2 1/2 weeks at the end of November 2011. It was fantastic.
The location is great, an easy 10 min walk from town. There's a little shop less than a minute away if you realise you forgot any essentials and a larger shop with French imports just up the road if you don't want to walk to town. The motel is near the municipal stadium so I ended up going to the Vanuatu v Solomons world cup qualifier which was lots of fun.
The motel itself has a fully equipped kitchen so you can cook for yourself if you choose but there are also lots of good restaurants around Port Vila if you're feeling lazy.
The pool is lovely, warm enough and clean. Very nice for those hot days after you've walked back from town.
The bathrooms and rooms are very clean. Lilly and the rest of the cleaning staff will happily supply you with new sheets or towels when desired.
Jack and Janelle, the managers, are extremely friendly and will do whatever they can to ensure that you enjoy your time in Vanuatu. Janelle knows all about the tours and excursions that are on offer, and if you're looking for a more unique experience she'll do everything she can to help you sort it out. She spent hours making arrangements for me and took all the stress out of it. Her recommendations were great and ensured that I had a fantastic time in Vila.
Thanks Jack and Janelle!
