1/5 Terrible

Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Disliked: Staff & service
I was meant to have paid Aus $95.42 per night through, but the hotel said they hadn't received my booking and end up charging me Aus $158 per night, the fish was over cooked, the salad consisted of about 2 tablespoons of coleslaw and a handful of chips, the waitress was very pleasant as well as the older receptionist who refused to charge me the Aus $95.42. if you want a better hotel with more value and better rooms and food use the Rapopo Plantation Resort,m they also have a bus shuttle to and from the airport

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Ok but can easily be improved
You get what you pay for - certainly prices in PNG too high for the product supplied - but Taklam lodge meets short term business travelers needs - clean comfortable air conditioned rooms - in deluxe section. Situated in middle town opposite bustling market Food good in restaurant - fresh and nicely prepared. Dessert not available although on menu. Service very slow but it appears that one staff member was working day and night with little break - need another waitress/waiter to help - especially when there is an influx of guests from cancelled flights as occurred on both nights I was there No wifi but it is poor on the island anyway
