Unimpressed

I have stayed at the Moorings several times. We know the hotel is under new ownership and they are renovating and changing things. Change the beds! Spent an uncomfortable night in one of the front rooms, frankly , not that impressed by this place. Lacks any atmosphere, used to like the old bar, food is very so so.

very relaxed holiday

Fantastic staff, made us feel so welcome, did everything they could to make our holiday enjoyable. Difficult time for staff as hotel changed ownership while we were there. Previous owner has let the hotel run down. Decor tired and dated but room still comfortable. Restaraunt choices very limited except for special nights such as Melanesian nights and Sunday roast. Bar choices limited. The new owners have an opportunity to restore this hotel to its previous standard.

quiet & good position but no beach :(

Staff were helpful & pleasant, especially when our hot water service broke down - it was replaced within 24 hours, staff also really helpful & informative re booking tours etc. Position is easy walking or bus ride to centre of Port Vila; the pool was clean & we had a harbourside room with a small deck with our own sun lounges looking over the lagoon - just lovely! The only negative is there is no sand beach.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Visit Mt Yasur on Tanna Island - an expensive day tour but so exciting being able to see the volcano so close. Take runners to walk up the volcano as it is very slippery.

An acceptable short stay hotel

This is not a hotel that you'd stay at for more than a day or 2 unless you had to. The beds are quite uncomfortable, and the linen old. The pool is quite nice. The staff at the restaurant are friendly enough and they make a good coffee. However the included breakfast is miserable and barely worth including. If you arrive outside of normal hours, expect to have to wake up the security staff who will check you in abruptly. This is not the best welcome. Wifi is not available in the rooms, but you can use it in shared areas. Moorings Management should consider offering a taxi service to and from the airport. The unscrupulous taxi drivers at the airport will rip you off and their vans are sometimes quite old and grubby.

Flag down any van that passes you - it costs 150 vatu to go virtually anywhere within the city of Port Vila. This is an efficient, reliable and cheap way to get around.

The room was ok, but close to

The room was ok, but close to the main road!! No coathangers, so we had to use a bunk bed that came with the room. Pool very well kept, not impressed we did not get continental breakfast, however I believe this will be included in future, A YOUNG PERSON's HOTEL! noisy in the evenings, and during major sports games. However, it is handy to many things so you cannot have it all ways. Staff were friendly, however untidy when cleaning the rooms, this is a management fault, provide staff with proper cleaning trolly , on both floors, things left around all day are unsightly and a hazzard. Aircon and fan worked well. another chair in the room would have been great.
