The hotel is in the main centre of Port Moresby. I was met by representatives at the airport with a Shuttle bus. The hotel is clean and large with many rooms. The main area is fenced for security that was maintained during the times I was there. There was a nice selection of restaurants and bars at the hotel. Service...

Not a bad place at all. Good sized rooms. Friendly staff and several restaurants to choose from. There was several outdoor boxing bouts on whilst I was there so a bit of entertainment also. No complaints at all about it. Would stay again.

The room was a bit small but quite comfortable. The restaurant and entertainment area was well set up and very well appointed. The Restaurant had the best steak that I have ever had in any Port Moresby Hotel.
