Located within easy walking distance to the Apia CBD. The team at the hotel were happy and friendly which helped to create a positive and pleasant atmosphere. The rooms were spotless, grounds immaculate and swimming pool a godsend. A fantasatic visit.

This place has lovely staff, clean rooms, historic building, lovely pool and great breakfast! We missed AC though since it was so hot at night. Great place to live, rent a car and explore the island. Internet was not good, but that seems to be the case in many places in the island.

Dear Marie, Thank you so much for writing this kind review. Thank you for your nice comments regarding our clean rooms, staff etc. Unfortunately internet is rather expensive in Samoa. However I do think charges will drop sometime this year when the new cable arrives. Once again thank you so much for staying with us. All the best in 2017....

Very peaceful and laid-back feel to the hotel. Wonderful service too. Concierge was very helpful in helping me with my travel itinerary. Breakfast was traditional. I got to sample local fruits and the breakfast pancakes were fantastic!

We had a traditional Fale. It was rustic, but not like sleeping in the jungle. No problem with shared facility. I would have loved it if there was a small fan in the room as it would have helped with air circulation, but otherwise it was a great experience. Also, they have a security guard which roams the property 24/7.

We were only in Apia for one night to get supplies and this hotel is handy for that. The rooms are basic but clean. Staff are very friendly and the breakfast was good. Great for a one night stop with a choice of inside rooms or outdoor fales

Good breakfast to set you up for the day, very friendly and helpful people. Room was tidy and clean and had much needed air conditioning. The hotel is not near a beach but has a good pool. It is in a very handy location - it's on the road to go across the island, and has a taxi rank outside...
