Did not like much . Property is cheaply constructed many things did not work or were broken. Staff themselves were nice but had no idea what service was all about just poorly trained .

Nice Place, but No Elevator
Lovely hotel and restaurant, but lack of elevator and room on top floor was challenging. Absolutely not for old, slow or handicapped.

Comfortable Hotel
This is a comfortable Hotel that with good facilities, however a number of little things need attention, the air conditioning unit was noisy and the control somewhat erratic which resulted in a room change, the plug in the bathroom sink of both rooms was broken. The restaurant provided a good selection of meals ranging from pizzas to steaks. The complementary breakfast vouchers on arrival were appreciated and the breakfast was good. The staff were very helpful and friendly although they struggled in the restaurant when it was busy.

Gazelle International is the only place to stay
My recent stay in Kokopo, PNG was made even more special thanks to the people at the Gazelle International. The friendly greeting started at the airport and they never failed to impress. Every member of staff was helpful, friendly and could not be any more obliging to all our needs. The facilities are fantastic, the food is sensational thanks to the Head Chef and his team of fabulous wait staff who were there to answer all our questions and helped with all our dining needs. The cleaning staff were amazing and went above and beyond any other place I have stayed. The front desk was always courteous and helped us with tours, travel arrangements and recommended some excellent sites to see. Thank you to Rodney, the Operations Manager and his team for making this a memorable stay.
