If you're staying in Gizo, your only choice for a western-style hotel is the Gizo hotel. But rooms cost twice as much as the Gelvinas for not a lot more. Gelvinas is a decent place to stay if you're on a budget. The money we saved staying here went towards the high cost of food in the gizo hotel! It's ran by a local family so in a way you are helping the community :-) The day we arrived, they had had no rain for 2 weeks so there was no shower. But the girls brought up a big bucket of water which was much appreciated. If we ever venture to Gizo again, we would definitely stay here.
