We were not expecting this layover. The Air Sol flight was cancelled- it can happen.
It took almost an hour to travel the 7kms from the airport.=- so beware.

The dancing girls went on for a long time so was very noisy if you wanted to sleep.

Worst thing was that this hotel is built in a steep hill , and the funicular/lift was not working. So I did not need any gym work after hauling luggage up.

Food was painfully slow , so was bar service

This would be my 3rd visit to KSH on business and I must say the overall setting has given me a glimps of what Solomon Islands is all about in a cultural and topographic sense, and the staff are alway there to assist with a smile, the true Melanesian gesture might I add.
From the main entry foyer to the last row of rooms is always a challenge. If you haven't taken the stairs good luck to you.
On a serious note: Upgrading of the facility is a must and consideration must be given to the spatial functions of the hotel's layout - linking the reception with the restaurant and public bar is a night club which can get aggressively noisy at times. This needs to be improved; The restaurant to improve its menu - I had to walk to another hotel to have a nice juicy steak for dinner simply because the kitchen was out of stock and at one point I noticed that the kitchen staff were not available to prepare breakfast.
KSH is always a good hotel to stay in, just improve on the key areas mentioned to be the best hotel in SI;)

I stayed for two days even though I planned to stay a lot longer. The Travellator that transported you and bags etc upstairs was broken requiring a 200 step up a steep hill daily. With little protection from the rain I got soaked every day in my work clothes. In addition the hot water often was not working in the shower. The rooms are very basic and can be noisy. The meals are just ok but nothing special. The internet is not existent in the rooms and hardly worked in the foyer. Additional data was expensive to buy. In summary not a great experience. I spoke to many people who shared my experience and were also moving out at the same time. In summary this place is terrible and can’t be recommended. Plus the cost would get you a 4 hotel in Australia.

I stayed in solomon for closer to one month. Staff are exceptionally flexible and understanding.
Specially Samantha (front desk), Roselyn (front desk), Nicola (bar) and Helen(house keeping)......wow....very prompt and attentive to detail. And moreover , always with a smile.....

Breakfast is good but for a person like me, who is staying for one month may become bored due to limited variety. But still the staff in Bamboo cafe try to give you an exceptional service and any special request within their level. If needed you can take away a small portion (say few bananas and fruits) from the buffet but recommend to get the permission from the staff.

Sunday pool party is THE event you should experience. Nice barbecue, with hot dogs, drinks and good swim with people around; nice experience.

Cultural dances are on thursdays & fridays...which is interesting and real good experience. Nice crowd and good people to mingle.

Rooms are fairly spacious with a balcony. Oven, Refrigerator and coffee packs are available.There are some apartments with a kitchen as well, which may be suitable for family and self cooking visitors.

BUT do not rely on Restaurant for dinner since the cuisine or taste is not edible or palatable. Except for the pizza(only for few days), nothing seems pleasing from the menu. If you from Asian region or a spicy food lover, then Restaurant is a "no go".
If you are using laundry, ensure to instruct not to use bleaching agents...only "HAND WASH/ SOAP WASH ONLY".

One more thing,,,,the wifi is only accessible from lobby...so when you land at the hotel, get a free sim with your boarding pass and activate a good data package.( i used beemobile, which is good. In genereal data is super expnsive)

Rooms near the pool area may have some disturbance with music.

Sometimes the hot water option does not work.Always have your extra towels requested from housekeeping.NOTE

TRY NOT TO USE THE CABLE CAR, INSTEAD THE STEPS TO WALK. "SAVE SOME ENERGY" :-)

ALL IN ALL - GOOD & MEMORABLE STAY WITH GOOD PEOPLE

ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU ROSELYN, SAMANTHA, NICOLA & HELEN FOR MAKING THE STAY..."HOME AWAY FROM HOME"

Room Tip: Suggest the studio type rooms in 4th level (with a kitchen and two room) for a good view
