Went to check in prepared with confirmation number and booking email but front office staff were clueless, said there was no booking, had no idea about Wotif. Took 20 minutes for them to find a senior manager and be directed to get a room prepared. Once in the room, the facilities were fine and the room was quite reasonable but front office staff need a lot of training, especially given the competitive market for accommodation in Moresby these days.

Too far from City meaning lots of Taxis which puts the cost of staying at the hotel at a higher rate than it's worth. They could arrange a free drop-off and pick-up point in the city at regular stated times, say every 2 or 3 hours. It doesn't need to be every hour.

Style over substance

Pros: Friendly staff - apart from the embarrassing security guards.
Cons: Infrastructure.
Location: Not too far from the airport via Port Moresby's new flyover. Close to Vision City shopping mall, but not much else.
The hotel is beautifully appointed and the staff are very friendly, but it very quickly looks to be a false front. I would much prefer a functioning internet and hot water service. These things are promised, but not delivered. Sure I can live without those things, but why would I want to pay as much as I did a night for the lack of infrastructure? The worst thing is the security guards who stamp their feet, stand to attention and salute as you drive through the gates. It's a retro-colonial throwback that is just embarrassing. I can't think of one reason I would come back.
