I was here for four nights in September. The place is overdue for a bit of a refurbishment but the rooms are comfortable and the staff are friendly. Be sure to eat in the restaurant as the cauliflower soup with langoustine is OUT OF THIS WORLD! Probably wouldnt stay at this hotel next time I'm in Moresby but would certainly...

In case you end up in PM, for any imaginable reason, CP is a safe pick for a short stay. Hotel is up on a hill overlooking the sea and one can walk to Ela beach to see locals play ball and jog (only in daylight). CP has a couple of good restaurants to choose. The fine dining one was...

We only stayed here one night at the end of a cruise. The hotel stands a few streets back from the port on a hill with views to the sea and the harbour. Security guards staff the compound gate at all times. The hotel has a nice feel, with attentive but sometimes uncertain staff. Check-in was painless. We had room...

Absolutely the best hotel I have stayed at in Port Moresby. Excellent service from all the staff.

Spent 2 nights at the CP in Port Moresby and was pleasantly surprised. Although a little tired and ready for a refurb our rooms were clean, well appointed and comfortable.

Possibly the slowest bar-restaurant in PNG. Order spaghetti bolognase at 17:30, enquirer about its whereabouts at 18:00 and 18:30, walk out hungry at 18:35. Echos the last 5 days of super-slow service at the bar. Apt because the WiFi is also snail pace. Everything else is average to over-priced. The interior is dated and stuck in the early 80. Good...

I stayed here a few times between 2013-2015 and found it a good choice if you have meetings in the main business district. The hotel itself is a bit dated but I didn't mind the slightly 70s vibe.
