The premium rooms go for around K450.00 a night and include a two-storey room with a king size bed and bathroom located upstairs, and a single bed and kitchen facilities downstairs. The staff are extremely welcoming... More

Spent over two weeks here and can say that they are consistent. The food is decent, the facilities are clean and maintained. The manager is the bonus. He will help if you are new to town, he will chat with you over a coffee or a beer, he will ask you if you are comfortable and go beyond the regular... More

Size room is ok, very basic lighting, no small light at bed, bathroom sink almost no draining, stuff got locked up in safe deposit box because of dead batteries, too expensive for what you get, beter to take a lodge or guesthouse. Location at coastwatchers monument = good

Stayed there on a business trip. Madang can be very humid and 'Coasties' is a great place to be. The open restaurant is a wonderful place to dine early mornings and in the evenings with a breathtaking view of the famous Coastwatchers Lighthouse and the bay looking towards Rai Coast and the Finnistere Ranges in the background. Midweek is a... More

I stayed in the premium sea view room. I really loved the room but i reckon it needs a new paint job. But apart from that. My children enjoyed pool. I am happy and will stay there again the next time i visit Madang

What I imagined before travelling here was fulfilled. I love the place, quite and close to the sea. My room was located perfectly where I could see the beautiful sunrise in the morning. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. I am taking my partner here next year for holidays.
