2/10 Poor

Hotel incapable of handing bookings through agents
Horrible hotel. Even though it was a pre-paid booking on my end, hotel staff insisted that it could not charge the virtual credit card that provided. I was harassed multiple times, and was asked to contact customer service from my end. Even after the misunderstanding was resolved, the hotel manager showed no sign of apology. I had stayed at this hotel multiple times in the past, but it seems that the new management of this hotel has no interest in customer service. I cannot recommend this hotel through this website or any agent, since the staff here do not have the capacity to process bookings through agents.

6/10 Good

The room was nice and the pool and gym good. But what was very disappointing was that there was no warning that the restaurant was closed for renovations and there was no way for guests to get food - even room service - at the hotel. The instruction was to go to The Crown Hotel a kilometre away and eat there. That is not so easy at night in Port Moresby for security-conscious guests without transport. It was a surprise to me that a hotel charging premium rates made no provision for even a limited room-service menu when the restaurant was closed.

10/10 Exceptional

It was a very convenient place to say for my purposes - which were to catch up with places and friends in Moresby after many years of not having been here. Unfortunely the authorities have wrecked the formerly attractive Ela Beach (not a fault the hotel of course).

4/10 Fair

web info does not match reality. "Deluxe" room is very basic, view was not of beach but of a roof and wall a few feet from a window so dirty at first I thought it was opaque glass. Carpet sticky and chair cushion stained. Complimentary move (after 3 requests for a different room) was to a "suite" which was a big bedroom, not a bedroom and additional room commonly understood as meaning a suite. Towels were sticky, maybe not fully rinsed? Nice balcony once I covered the vert wet cushion on the balcony furniture. Beach view is next to main road and noisy if on balcony. Restaurant ok.
