Generally the Express is a great addition to the Holiday Inn complex, but was let down by two problems. There is no fridge. Even in guest houses in the provinces a fridge is nearly always provided. The other was the on going problem with the lights: they kept going off. Not because of a power outage, which is normal in PNG, but because of a fault. Despite the electrician re-setting the trip switch is would happen again and again, until a colleague told me he had had the same problem and was able to turn the lights back on himself by opening and closing the room door. Hey presto is worked, although tiresome having to do this every 30 mins or so. I informed reception and they told me they would have to get the contractor back. I hope so as this is an annoying problem which needs to be rectified. Once both are fixed then the Express will have my custom again in the future

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chad79 Great all round experience
I had a great all round experience at the Holiday Inn Express Port Moresby. The staff are great, attentive and always willing to help, You can tell they have been trained well. The room is great size, the beds and pillows are amazing. The only negative of the room is that it didnt have a fridge. The hotel decor and settings are great, good quality. I rated poor for breakfast because I was there for 6 nights and you can only eat the same things so many times. I think if you are there for two nights, breakfast is ok,, basic bacon, eggs, sausages, bakebeans, small selection of cereal and fruits.. breakfast could be improved.
I would definetely recommend this hotel, and would stay there again on future trips to Port morsesby.
