“awful time..i would sue if i was in UK!”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

We arrived for 1 night on route to the islands.It was close,the rooms were ok (im used to hostels) and the food was well priced and good.On the downside it doesnt look like the picture and im left with split tendons on 3 toes after they hadnt cleaned the side of the pool up,there was broken beer bottles and rubbish.I stood on some broken bottle and sliced my foot open.the blood was everywhere.the guy who was working there did help me out and clean my foot up,however nobody offered to take me to a hospital even though it clearly needed stitches! 3 weeks on and i have had to cut my trip in australia short because my toes arnt working due to cut tendons. so i have to have emegency treatment done in the UK.I am fuming..it has cost me thousands in flights and ruined my island hopping trip.also the blood was still there in the morning! shocking.

Room Tip: dont choose one..choose another hotel!

I thank you for your comments and would like to respond.
We are very sorry that this happened to you and unfortunate, as other guests were around the pool and did not get cut. Our staff did help you clean your foot up and also offered to take you to the Hospital but your friend and yourself refused and said that you were O.K. After the accident you and your friend enjoyed yourselves in the pool!!

Im a traveller that is hardly at the hotel. The only time I need to be there is to shower and sleep and that means no more than 8 hours per day. Which also means its completely a waste of money to spend more than you have to.

The location of this hotel is perfect. It is close to the airport, close to 2 shopping haven - denarau, nandi town as well as most of the sightseeing places. Unlike other hotels, the GMH is surrounded by restaurants (so no need to eat in the hotel), produce market (5 minutes walk), health clinic, supermarkets and perfectly located to catch the bus' to either nadi, lautoka and suva

Uh! this hotel is so pathetic i stayed for two noghts but different bookings.
because of the flood i had to stay there the first night i got my room for $80 no tv but 5 beds so thats something good.
at 4 am in thr morning there was loud music and fijian people partying away. they even have a stripper.how disgusting.
Than the next day i checked out came to see my house the water had receded we went and had our breakfast at my aunts place.
than later in that day we came into the house bt at nite we had to revacate the house this time we went to capricorn which $125 including breakfast.
bt we thought to go to melenasian again and this time i saw the strippers in action so i booked a night for $100 exclusive of breakfast.
the service was good bt nt for families. the nxt day we checked out and has our breakfast in MCDonalds

The service at the reception is non-existent. You have to pay a $20 deposit for your bath towels (for your room!) and god help you if you are staying the a few days, because they won't change the towels! No hand towels in the room. Just one pair of mismatching cups, and non-working TV, which after complaining to the reception, was told someone would come around soon to have a look (no one did). Couldn't sleep all night due to the traffic and the noises coming from other rooms. Booked for 2 days but couldn't take it anymore, so we checked out the next day and went elsewhere. Was lucky to find another hotel nearby, which cost about the same but excelled in service and cleanliness.

I really need to start checking reviews before I book a strange place on line!

The staff was really friendly, BUT.....

I booked my room in September via a link on the Air Pacific web site for an over night layover enroute to Auckland. My credit card was immediately charged. When I arrived in Nadi it took three phone calls over the course of an hour to get the shuttle to come pick us up.

The hotel had no record of our reservation. I showed them the confirmation email I rec'd from Air Pacific and three staff members puzzled over it, speaking Fijian, for several minutes. In the end I was told that I would have to pay for the room again because they had no record of the reservation. I was told that Air Pacific didn't notify them of my reservation. I asked for a letter explaining why I had to pay again so I could try and get reimbursement from Air Pacific. I was promised I'd have the letter as an email by noon today. It's now 10 pm and I don't have it. I doubt I ever will.

The hotel building is concrete block construction. The double bed mattress was pretty worn out, but the sheets were clean if you ignored the cigarette burn holes. The roaches were varied, but all were slow. One of the staff came and sprayed roach killer all round for us. That, and a towel stuffed under the hall door, seemed to keep any others at bay.

Bottom line.......avoid this hotel! And don't book a hotel through the Air Pacific web site, go directly to the hotel web site if they have one. If they don't, you probably need to look for one that does. And, avoid any hotel that has "Grand" or similar superlative adjectives in its name.

The hotel is on the mainroad, so it is noisy. It is close to the airport, not in a nice place. The rooms are not nice. The hotel is promises, that they pick up you from and to the airport. But if you are not very-very-very self confident, you won't get it. (2010 November)
