My wife and I stayed for three nights in a "deluxe" room on the second floor. I was told when booking that only deluxe rooms were available. I did sense though that occupancy of the hotel was low so it may be that ordinary rooms were not considered good enough. At FJ$150 per night the price was very reasonable in comparison with other Suva hotels. The room was of an older colonial style but was thankfully clean and comfortable with air-conditioning and a nice tiled modern bathroom. The hotel is very close to the Suva business centre, Parliament buildings, Fiji Archives and the Anglican cathedral. We found it very convenient. The Korean restaurant on the top floor had good food, especially the tuna, and Scott's restaurant beside the pool had first class food of European cuisine. Neither was cheap but there were nearby food bars. We found the hotel staff to be friendly and helpful and would not hesitate to stay there again. We enjoyed our time there. I felt that the hotel deserved more patronage than it appeared to get -- probably because they didn't seem to advertise much. Perhaps that is why their rates are lower than other Suva hotels.
