Holiday Inn Port Moresby
Ranked #8 of 15 Hotels in Port Moresby
Reviewed 11 June 2012

I have stayed a few times at the Holiday Inn in Port Moresby over a 20 year period. It has not changed much in that time. It is still a pleasant place to stay and the staff are friendly but it is showing signs of its age. As a general rule Port Moresby accommodation is the worst value for money in the world. The increase in options may change this. New wings for the hotel will provide much needed updates. In terms of the options available in Port Moresby it is not bad.

We liked our stay here at the Holiday Inn, POM. They've been working on renovations and have done a good job. Part of the downside though is the renovations are going on. The staff were helpful and friendly, going out of their way to help us.The rooms were nice. You have to specify that you want a non-smoking room though if that is your preference, not like many hotels now that are totally non-smoking. The first floor is actually specificied for non-smokers, but not all like being on the first floor. Everything worked in the room. It could've been a bit cleaner. It is way more than I'd like to pay, but that's the way it is in Port Moresby, way way over-priced.

On arrival, the hotel looks Ok, but once you enter things go down hill from there. the lobby is kind of bare, its not warm and inviting. then the staff uniforms are worn out, very worn out. going up the stairs to rooms, the carpet is very dirty. i thought maybe it was becasue we had arrived in the morning (10am) but during the stay the carpet remained looking filthy. The food in the restaurant was bland, with very little variety. and then the hotel has this habit of calling you to remind you about your bill, and to remind you when you are checking out. i found this very unprofessional. also it is terribly expensive for the cost. i paid US$316, per night, and this did not include breakfast.

The rooms were however good, the bad very comfortable, although the house keeping staff kept forgetting to leave shampoo, soap etc.

Readily available customer service, but great for business class traveller. Adequate for small time traveller on budget who wants luxury. Their buffet was great but not as consistent as I has few months ago. broken remotes and fridge with no cold water. Not good enough for premier hotel in Port Moresby.

Room Tip: Do not ask for tower rooms they are not as spacious.

Not the best hotel I have sayed at, $360 AUD per niight is very steep for essentially a 3 star hotel. Mould in the bathroom, airconditioning struggled and the fridge was turned off when I arrived. Staff were great although room service dinner took 50 mins to be delivered....

Room Tip: Ask for pool view rooms as these may be better than harbour view which looks onto a new tower being...

There is nothing exceptional in this hotel other than being overpriced. Breakfast was extra cost. Rooms are clean and comfortable bed.

In a country such as Papua New Guinea one should expect to see mosquitoes but not swarms in the lobby. The staff did recognise my PC club status but the only benefit was seriously slow internet and a free drinks voucher. The hotel itself is rather dated but a new holiday inn is being built next door so this should offer nicer surroundings for the future. The rooms are nice, large and clean although the bathroom was grubby. Security is good and the hotel seems safe although it did seem at the time that locals are living in some rooms permanently, the kids school clothes drying on the balcony were a give away. The staff are friendly, polite and helpful. The food is of a good standard and room service is fast.

For a night out with good food and great bar visit the Royal Yacht Club.

All in all if I were to visit again I would look at another hotel but would consider the new holiday inn once built.

Room Tip: Avoid the apartments, get a high room in the block
