Where do I start! We booked a two night package with Air Nuigini including flights and accommodation which was quite expensive but as we wanted to see Kavieng decided we would wear the expense. We were booked into standard room, which needed urgent maintenance, was dirty and felt like the ghettos. We requested a room change but were advised we...

It seems to be in a nice part of PNG and I quite enjoyed my visit. Staff are friendly and the rooms are comfortable and clean. The restaurant serves up pretty good meals at a good price. No complaints at all.

The last time I stayed here was 10 years ago and then it was a bit of a dump so I was surprised to find the Kavieng Hotel had smartened up somewhat. There are now a number of 'Executive' rooms on the first floor above the revamped reception area which were really not bad - spacious and with a verandah...

Only two real hotels in town, so not much choice. But US$250 a night-- and cockroaches, no toilet amenities, and meal service that's timed not to match the few air flights in and out of the place? At least there could be toilet paper in the restaurant toilets. At least the Friday night sea food buffet is ok, but why...

Truly awful place. Terrible food - disgusting and grossly over-priced. Incompetent, surly, bad-tempered and unhelpful staff. Run-down dingy rooms which have not been refuribished since the Mezies ere. Only for govt employees wanting to scrimp and save on travelling allowance. Avoid at all costs. There are much better options in Kavieng.

hotel room and accomodation clean and satisfactory. Food highly variable, [lobster cocktail excellent but another choice of fish tough and inediable] and breakfast coffee to be avoided. Staff friendly. Located in the centre of town and you can walk to all local sites of interest.

A decent place with good rooms. It may look a little run down from the front, but the rooms are acceptable. The AC worked well! I had no problems and the staff were helpful. There is a small bar/cocktail lounge in the restaurant. The restaurant offers a small but varied menu. The grilled mackerel with chilli's was one of my...

“Executive rooms at the front of the hotel are worth paying the extra K100 per night for”

“When I was there, I had the cheapest room and hot water, but the more expensive new rooms upstairs didn't have any hot water. Go "cheap" and spend US$250 instead of US$300.”
