This hotel and it's restaurant have seen better days. The breakfast offerings are sorry. The setting is morose and dank. There are far better places to eat.

Staying at the hotel, this was an easy option for us. But the food really hit the right note. Great Thai curries and Pineapple rice, really tasty chili crab, but be prepared to devote some time to pick it clean. Well worth it. The wine list is tricky, it's easier to check and see what they actually have in stock,... More

most of the patrons here at the hotel are ex-pats that live and work in Honiara so naturally the meals on offer from the Hotel cater towards western tastes. If you are after a good value, no fuss pub meal then go no further.

Been traveling between UK and Solomon for five plus years now and this been always my home away from home. You must try breakfast and lunch at their Bambou Cafee. And make sure you do not miss the evening dinner and music in main restaurant. The pub is always great. Shane and his wife are Australians who own and manage... More

Cable car is novel, rooms clean and basic. Bit musty, bit dated but not horrible. Wouldnt get in the pool, dodgey. Restaurant very 80s but food is best you'll get in Honiara.

Great location . Love the way karina looks after us when we are there . She is a breath of something fly to the hotel. She always goes above and beyond to make our stay comfortable from taking care of our reservations to our check out. The hotel is centrally located and has everything that one would need for a...

This hotel is very average but probably rates fairly well against other accommodation in Honiara. It could have been cleaner as I felt the cleaning was done half heartedly. The interesting feature is the funicular which takes you up and down to the level that your room is on. The rooms are set on in blocks on different tiers and... More

Description
Visited here in 2010 for a fantastic seafood buffet dinner. Tried again in 2011 but in between me booking and the night I went, they had changed to a set menu. While cheaper at $100SOL per person, it was nothing fantastic with minimal topping on my pizza.
