Stayed here 5 nights. Rooms are small but clean, bathrooms are average but really the main thing is that the staff are amazing, they treat you really well (due to delays we arrived at 11pm and the owners personally checked us in and welcomed us), the food is delicious (eat the curries!) and the pool area is lovely. They help...

Great food. friendly staff and a nice room. Expensive but worth the money as it is located near the middle of Lugainville. It has an excellent pool and covered area. The staff are helpful and knowledgeable- they even went to the airline office for me when I had sore feet! I recommend it.

The room was clean and tidy. Nice A/C and balcony out onto the street. No in room safe though. The bed was nice and comfy, the pillows a bit too big though but that just a personal taste. The bathroom is VERY small. Don't plan on getting ready for dinner together. Shower nozzle would not stop spraying on the wall...

The Espiritu Hotel has been recently renovated. Rooms were pleasant, staff exceptionally polite and helpful and meals of a good standard. Reception staff arranged tour bookings and airport transfers. Location was central and walking distance to markets and supermarket.

This was our second trip back to The Espiritu. The service was excellent both times we stayed. The staff is very friendly and helpful but what really makes us go back is Rayman, the owner.
