We spent 11 days here. It was so good, and centrally situated to the best snorkelling spots of Hideaway Island, Paradise Cove, and Cocobeach Resort. It was also close to the centre, local stores, Goodies money exchange, and Bon Marche supermarket. The front rooms have a bit of traffic noise at night, but those at the back or on the...

Great little BnB located about 15 minutes from the centre of Port Vila. Room was a great size, bath room was fine, the breakfast enough for what we needed and the internet was the fastest I experienced in Vanuatu. I would recommend this BnB to any travellers, great view from the balcony - and very cost effective compared to other...

The rooms have cockroaches and dull lighting and shabby furnishings. Lady was not helpful and staff were clearly not happy. Poor cooking facility and very noisy location. Stairs were wet and slippery and has gone past its useable state. It is not correctly registered so cannot be insured so may not be safe to life. We were shocked to go...

The hotel Room With A View was bought by two French brothers Xavier and Bertrand in April 2014. Both of them are the host of the place which means that there is no "cranky lady as operator" in the place. Our Staff two cleaning ladies and two gardeners are there every day to maintain the place clean. All the rooms...

Fantastic location just a short walk from the main street, really friendly staff who are helpful. Breakfast was basic but more than adequate for starting the day. Beds were very firm but it was clean and quiet. Shower wasn't always hot or hard to get to the right temperature and flooded the bathroom but again was adequate. Wi-Fi was slow...

Great and friendly host and staff. They even stored our big bags free of charge between stays as we travelled to other islands. Good room size that include a kitchenette - though the bathrooms were quite dated. Free wifi that worked in the rooms as well as an amazing breakfast included in the price of your stay (the best croissants...

Welcoming host, pleasant surroundings and walking distance to downtown and cafes. Breakfast on balcony overlooking the water which made for a very pleasant way to start the day. Booking island experiences done through the reception and airport taxi was arranged through the office after we had the not so good experience of the taxi we booked ourselves not showing. One...

I stayed there for one week and had a wonderful time. The view - as the name says - is magnificent, the ower is very nice and the breakfast is the best start of the day that you can have. Papaya, banana, pomelo and the best: a suoer fresh and tasty croissant, just like in France! The rooms are clean...

I stayed a few days in this nice guesthouse, at the beginning and at the end of a trip to Vanuatu. Very good value for the money, specially if you travel on a budget but want to stay in a nice place. It is a colonial house centrally located in Port Vila, but in a relatively quiet area (though there...

We stayed there for five nights and totally loved it. Justine the host is really nice and always around for a chat. Room was neat and clean, although the humid weather makes the bathroom smells weird.. Nice view of the bay on the veranda. Breakfast with lots of tropical fruits, bread and eggs. Will stay there next time I'm around.

Justine's guest house has a verandah with a stunning view where guests have the best breakfast in Port Vila - croissant, fruit, eggs -MMMH! It's a short walk to the town where there is a great selection of restaurants and shops.
