My wife and I travelled to Mt Hagen for the annual Sing Sing. We had read the reviews on Tripadvisor before we came and were not sure that we had done the right thing. All the doubts were cast aside. Our room was in the main building, above Reception and we found it to be excellent. Great shower, thick towels, comfortable bed and sufficient room to move about. It was so good to have a hotel with decent lighting so that we could easily read in bed - if only the larger hotel chains could get back to providing this! Housekeeping was at a good standard and the staff friendly. Food in the restaurant was very good, particularly the vegetables, which are apparently sourced locally. Contrary to some other reviewers we found the restaurant service to be excellent. James, in particular, was first class and remembered our names and preferences for every meal. There is a need for security and the steps taken at the Highlander reassured us that we would be well cared for. Considering the difficulties in PNG and particularly those in the Highlands, the management of this hotel is doing an excellent job.
