Staff wonderful, service, food, transportation all good. The bathroom in our room was a bathtub I’d never think of soaking in and the toilet ran all night.

2/10 Poor

I spent many good nights over the years whilst living and working in Papua New Guinea and happily dined and stayed overnight in the hotel, however this experience was one of the worst experiences I have ever had, the room was nothing short of atrocious, it was smelly, dirtiest room I have ever stayed in, outdated and I would say the whole hotel requires a massive makeover under its current management structure. Definitely not worth the money paid. The staff were brilliant, I was able to check in with ease and I was able to eat all my meals at the restaurants however when I ordered a soft drink I was told Sorry we do not have stock. Taking everything into consideration I give this place a 2 star rating and that goes to the Staff not the facilities.
