Beautiful room with balcony, very spacious room, spacious bathroom. Very nice view of the "marina" and pool from ur room. Nice amenities in the bathroom. Shower and showered quite mouldy, looked like it had never seen bleach in its life. Hotel restaurant very $$$ - however this is not unique to the hotel; Honiara in general is quite an expensive...

Room very old. Mattress / beds well past their used by date. Meals are not cheap and many were not available. Pool didn't not look clean. Staff friendly though. Overpriced for what you get, would look elsewhere!

We were dropped off here on our way to our cruise aboard the Bilikiki. The 4 of us made our way to the beautifully air conditioned restaurant. We sat ourselves down and waited for a server. And waited. Eventually a nice lady came over with the menu's and we ordered soon after. The food and beverages arrived as ordered. The...

Honiara is mostly a disappointment to visitors. Potholes in the road reduce traffic to a crawl. Footpaths and access along the main street are chaotic. But tucked away beside the water in central Honiara is the Kitano Mendana Hotel with its collection of rooms and suites spanning decades and quality levels. It’s staffed by islanders with that quiet friendliness that...

Having spent a week in the outer island I did expect a lot more, although you can tell this Country is struggling. I strongly suggest you ask to see your room before agreeing to sleep, rooms vary greatly from really adequate to aged and run down. Meals were good and staff happy and friendly

One of the better places to stay in Honiara. Affordable with good service; staff are always willing to help. Clean rooms and sheets, although you may want to request a pool towel as towels provided in the room as on the 'small' side. Follow up on room service as orders tend to get lost or pushed back during peak hour...

The rooms are basic, depends on which you book. The standard rooms are not bad at all but they are really standard. Big living space though. They are usually fitted with a double and a single bed. Would give 6/10 for cleanliness, the standard rooms are old. Generally the hotels in honiara are expensive, ranging from SBD1200-SBD2000 with less than...

The hotel is a bit tired, but we were at least in the refurbished bit. The air con worked, and it had everything we needed. We were there when the independence day celebrations were on, which was fun! the meal options are not cheap, so don't expect that. It might be nice to have breakfast included, rather than having to...

I've stayed several times at the Mendana. The refurbished rooms are very nice. The old rooms less so but ok when in town for business. The japanese restaurant is very good. The pool is good, the hotel wifi is good in the public areas but only some rooms have in room access. The staff are very nice and helpful.

The full page colour advertisement in the Solomons Airlines magazine advertised '100 fully refurbished rooms...', virtually implying that all the rooms had been refurbished. Our group of 12 must have been given the unrefurbished rooms. Don't be fooled by being told 'you will be upgraded by a seaview room in the West wing'. There is no upgrade. The rooms are...
