Had a one night stay here for business. Very welcoming and friendly staff. Lovely food, I had salmon it was delicious and the breakfast was nice to. I stayed in a recently updated room overlooking the pool, it was clean and comfortable. A good place to stay when in Lae!!

This hotel in the midst of Lae CBD is a true resort in so many ways from the comfort and cleanliness of your room, to the helpful staff, the Birds waking you at dawn and the beauty of the estate. Only let down is the quality of the food at the higher end which are processed recipes. But overall within...

The Hotel was built in 1987 and hasn't improved much since then. It is reasonably efficient for PNG, The food is good and the servings adequate if they remember to serve you. The rooms are quiet and a good size the housekeeping is excellent. The AC works but only one speed flat out and noisy. The internet is super slow...

Firstly, forget everything and remember that you're in Lae and not in a capital city. You're not going to have any level of usable or reliable internet or cell phone connectivity. The hotel should make an effort to install internet boosters around the property, but they still cannot control the service from the telcos. The rooms are reasonable and the...

So came here looking for a meal and was told as it is Indian buffet night I could only have a steak or pizza, and nothing else was available on the menu So why give me a menu? Why do you close the kitchen to your other dishes? Best to avoid Thursday nights if yu don't like Indian buffet

Room was clean and comfortable. Service was very poor and sub standard but expected in PNG. Meals were horrible. I stayed when the rooms were offered on Special during a promotion, so I am glad I didn't pay the full price. Gardens, Pool and Outlook very stunning

I go to PNG 3-4 times a year, I am very aware of the standards in the country. But I still can't get over how bad this hotel is. Wifi works fine in every other place and office I have stayed in POM and LAE. Here, they have decided to use this horrible credit method that is impossible to figure...

The room has been painted recently which has improved the appearance of the room. To add to the improvement the air conditioner has been replaced with a quieter version that seems to handle the numerous mains/generator cutovers that occur on a regular basis. Staff were great and attentive. And the food in the restaurants was possibly the best I have...
