“Cheap, yet clean and so friendly and easy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2013 via mobile

Lilen and Sylvie were lovely & keen to assist you with anything you needed!
3 bedroompeople apartments were basic but contained a tv, shower and large fridge as well as 2 really strong fans.
Only a 15m walk into town but you kind of had to know where you were going- or only a 200vt taxi trip.
Nice little fruit basket & the free wifi was a great bonus!
Definitely reccomend it for fellow budget travellers!

We stayed in Anabru Lodge for a week in October 2012. From the start we were made very welcome & were well looked after. Fresh mangoes were knocked down from a local tree for our first breakfast!! The place was spotlessly clean and the facilities were good. Although it's a little out of town, the "every 30 second" bus schedule made it easy & cheap to get to town or to the beach from the gate. Also, there is a shop at the gate. Sylvie & Lilian were both on hand to answer any question that we had and the owner, Lily & her partner Edmond took us out and helped us to organise trips. We would definitely recommend this place and will go back one day, as we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Vanuatu! Thank you Anabru Lodge!!

We loved how clean and comfortable Anabru was! The TV was great (even two channels was more than we bargained for at the price), and it was lovely to have a welcome fruit basket waiting for us. The fans were very reassuring to have, although the building is naturally cool so we didn't use them.

Sylvie and Liline were both gracious, present, helpful hostesses, and transport was so easy. All the bus drivers know the place, it's convenient to walk, and when we had to get to the airport at 5am and forgot to confirm our taxi, there was a bus driving past at just the right time.

The only downside is that traffic noise can be a little loud, but we chose not to close our windows, which would have cut the noise.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment for 5 nights and could not complain about a single thing. Apartment was well equipped, spotlessly clean and the service from Sylvie was second to none. She made us feel at home and there was nothing that was too much trouble.
I would happily recommend Anabru to others for a pleasant stay in Port Vila.

We stayed here 5 nights/$50 a night in early Jan 12.

It is in excellent location 5 mins from main street. It has a secure front gate and was very clean with not many bugs. The bar fridge was small but did the job, they had a microwave, all the pots, pans and cutlery you would need. TV was ok, but no air-con, just a few standup fans. As all the windows need to keep open for ventilation it was a little noisy at times with the neighbours, babies etc.

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. There is a small shop nextdoor to buy a drink or snack too. There is an outdoor oven used as the indoor oven, funny as had big warning sign saying not to be used for indoors!

THe room is not cleaned everyday, and coffee packs on request. No phone/clock but not far to walk to reception. There is the local cat which can be pesky at times. The kitchen sink tap fell off in our hands and at one stage the hot water didn't work, but they fixed it immediately.

It is a very good hotel for the budget price you pay in Port Vila and nothing too bad to complain about at all.

Stayed here for a month on a medical elective and couldn't have been happier. We were on a very tight budget and this was the cheapest accommodation we could find. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment and it was huge. Big rooms, could potentially sleep 7 if you were VERY close friends but it was great for what we needed. It's a bit of a hike into town - about 30min into town and 40min to the hospital. We enjoyed the walk, but if you don't it is incredibly cheap and easy to get a bus. The accommodation was clean and facilities more than adequate and the apartment was serviced everyday. The only possible negative was that you are in a village/town so nights could be a little noisy with roosters/dog fights etc etc Finally, the staff are great and Liline is wonderful.

Just a note to say this is a great place to stay. More basic than your resorts of course, more like home really, lovely staff, Hi Lilly 1 and 2 and Jennifer. Excellent service, easy walk or inexpensive mini-van ride to town. Mini-mart next door. Worked for us and clean as!
