8/10 Very good

Rooms were clean and the air conditioning was effective. Water pressure was also good. Wi-Fi was very poor. The hotels two restaurants were ok but overpriced - breakfast was the best option. Service was friendly but more responsive than proactive. This hotel is better than most others in Honiara and I would stay here again.

2/10 Poor

I can't say there was anything really good about the property. It needs a really good cleanup - tiles falling out and not replaced; place smelt very damp (and I know it is a humid climate); the sheets were yellow with age; the shower was horrid and just the general decor was so old and worn and smelly. I would not recommend anyone to stay there.

8/10 Very good

The executive rooms are very good. However some areas of the property are showing their age and could do with an uplift, especially the rooms in the West wing. This is not that apparent when booking via the web site. Service is uniformly friendly and relaxed.

6/10 Good

The hotel is dated and needs to be refurbished if they expect guest to pay the prices being charged. The main restaurant meals are below standard the only saving grace is the Japanese restaurant.

4/10 Fair

Dirty, unfriendly, bed bugs
Stayed here only for two nights but pretty sure I got bed bugs from here. The room was very dated and the bathroom was dirty. There are very limited options in Honiara so I'll have to go back to stay here. Next time I'll bring bed bug spray.

8/10 Very good

Considering where we are the rooms were nice. Staff could react a bit faster when the AC goes out or a wing has no hot water. Food at the main dining hall was good. Delivery at the Japanese location was very slow but the food was good.
