Our room is about 4X5 meters with an attached kitchen and bath. The room kitchen includes a cold water sink and a small refrigerator. There is a shared kitchen for cooking. We have A/C, TV and on demand hot water that is adjustable but you should ask them to show you how to work it when you check in. Internet... More

Excellent choice for the budget conscious while still enjoying all the necessary amenities one would expect in this range of accommodations. Very clean, perfectly located, security on-site 24/7, extremely knowledgable and friendly owners who strive to provide its guests with a memorable Vanuatu experience. Having travelled from Canada, this motel was exactly what I expected based on my research and... More

This is a fairly basic motel with small rooms and shared facilities. Our room was clean with okay beds. There seemed to enough bathroom facilities to go round with plenty of toilet paper and hot water and we didn't have any cleanliness issues. Laundry was reasonably priced. The motel has a pretty garden area which gives it a bit more... More

We stayed here for 2 nights because the hotel we booked originally was somehow overbooked. This motel is very basic and not very comfortable, and definitely could have been cleaner. There were cockroaches in our room. The garden is lovely but the rooms are poorly maintained, the bathroom / toilet are very basic and there is no hot water. Beds... More

Price is very competitive and the location is great, 5-10 minutes from town center. The rooms are basic but clean, same for the shared facilities such as showers and bathrooms. For solo travellers, you actually get a single room for the price of a dorm bed, which is a pleasant change if you have been on the road for a... More

As a solo traveler I spent one night here in a single room in transit from Tanna to Noumea. The rate for the room was very competitive at 2500 Vatu per night. The room was basic but clean.

We were looking for cheap accommodation close to the "center". We stayed only 2 nights as we couldn't cope with the mold and the unconfy bed. Pros: cheap, free wifi, little TV (with 2 channels) Cons: mold (even around your bed), no pressure & proper hot water in the shower, crappy toilet, dirty towels/linen, no proper kitchen. And even worst,... More
