I stayed here for a few nights and everything was great. Room was comfy, pool was cool and the food at the restaurant was pretty good. They'll pick you up from the hotel, and drop you off again, and arrange a taxi if you need one.

Stayed here for one night before an early morning flight back to Australia. I'd rate it as a pretty decent place to stay. The food was not bad. We had the bbq, salad and dessert. For 70 kina it was simple but one of the better meals I've had in Port Moresby (and I've just had almost two months of hotel meals in Port Moresby). The pool was warm and very swimmable, and after two requests we were provided with some extra nice fluffy towels.
On arrival we were upgraded tho an executive room, which was adequate without being anything brilliant. Note that these rooms were up stairs - I knew we had to munch luggage and carrying out up and down those stairs confirmed it.
Thumbs down for the shower, which was a pitiful stream. And thumbs down for no tissues in the room. It was also pretty noisy. I think the staff had their break area just behind the room. Hey guys, we can hear everything you say. Thumbs up for the helpful check-in and check out staff, and the wait staff. Good job!
All in all, a good hotel very close to the airport and perfect for an overnighter. They also have apartments but I didn't get a chance to check them out. For the price it was very good value.

Dear Bev P,

The Management of the Gateway Hotel and Apartments would like to thank you for your recent feedback on TripAdvisor. I have taken on board your feedback pertaining to the water pressure during your stay, with current dry conditions here in Port Moresby we are currently looking at improving our water tank storage as well as water reticulation to ensure pressure remains more constant. Your comment on tissues is noted.

For all of your favourable feedback I say thank you, management has worked very hard to improve a number of service points and it would appear that the guests are now benefiting from this staff training and development.

Bev P, we wish you all the best and look forward to having you stay with us again in the future at the Gateway Hotel and Apartments.

Only stayed for a night......over all was ok. Have stayed in worse.

Bed was clean and room was tidy but dated, generally service was good and stand out at Dinner was Ruth in Restaurant. The brekkie buffet next morning included was ample to start the day.

Here is the tip;

Keep expectations low and will not be disappointed,

Dear WayneMoffat1,

Thank you for your recent interesting feedback on the TripAdvisor website.

The Gateway Hotel and Apartment Management will use the feedback you have provide to look at how we can further improve both our guest services and facilities at the property.

We are currently upgrading all bedding to King Size beds and we have introduced a Snr Room Attendant program with the aim of improving our housekeeping department, its efficiencies and standards.

It was pleasing to note that both dinner and breakfast met your expectation and I will certainly pass onto Ruth that she was mentioned for her service offerings.

While some travellers to PNG may have low expectations, hotel management does not accept these and with the ongoing support of the owners, we will continue to improve the property, its offerings and service standards.

We were met by Noah at the airport who helped us check our luggage in for the domestic flight and transferred us to the Gateway for a breakfast and a nap. Noah is all class and was a big help getting us to and from the airport. The breakfast was an adequate buffet and they let us have a nap at their departures bar area. This is a great place to rest for you next flight.

It's convenient to come to the hotel from the airport as there seems always friendly staff at the airport ready to pick you up. The hotel is not cheap, much higher than a similar hotel in Australia. Food is expensive too, even for a pizza. The room is so-so. Pool is not heated, which is cold for a September visit. Wifi is unreliable. Of the two days we were there, one day was totally unavailable. The receptionist was not too helpful.

For food, I suggest going to the high end Airways Hotel nearby, but the food there is good and reasonably priced. Don't walk there for safety reason, the Gateway hotel shuttle will take you there and bring you back.

Room Tip: the upper floors seem better

Artscene,

Thank you for your most recent feedback on the Trip Advisor website. We appreciate all feedback and use this as an opportunity to see where we can improve the guest services and facilities we offer.

The hotel currently has three new food venues under construction, one being an upmarket bar and restaurant overlooking Jackson's Airport and the second being a family style restaurant and an express food take-away located in the current bar area. We would hope that these venues will over a variety of different dining options to the large market that we have stay at the hotel.

I am sorry you have problems with the Wi-Fi during your stay. The Hotel has gone to considerable expense to upgrade Wi-Fi services and offer complimentary Wi-Fi into all rooms and public areas. Unfortunately we still require the services of internet service providers of which there are limited options. In the past we have been very lucky with their reliability with minimal interruptions.

Again Artscene, thank you for your time and choosing to stay at the Gateway Hotel and Apartments, should you visit Port Moresby again, please feel free to make yourself know.

Regards

Matthew Cooper
General Manager
