The King Solomon had some special features - the most amazing is the cable car which you can use to go up and down to and from your room. The pool looked inviting although I never got to try it. I did go to the buffet dinner provided during the cultural show, which I enjoyed. There was free wi-fi in the restaurant and lobby areas. Staff were usually pleasant and responsive. The location was convenient. Music from the club next door could be loud on weekend evenings. I liked the King Solomon because it had character.

Sometimes King Solomon Hotel is wonderful and sometimes, less than wonderful. I cannot complain too much because everyone was extremely kind and helpful when my transfer to Savo Island did not arrive on time. I was waiting from 2 pm - actually I ...

When I got my internal flight to Gizo we had to go back after 10 mins as something was wrong. It was just too much to ask that a tiny airport with a tiny plane, where the boarding information is shouted out by a woman could actually send a plane off with no problems.
- When I got to Chester Resthouse, which is run by the Melanesian Brotherhood (Church) and is so-called because it was funded by the Diocese of Chester, England, I met Brother Tony who couldn't find any details of my booking. He said for the first 2 nights I would stay in a standard bedroom and the second 2 nights in a self contained room for no extra cost. The standard bedroom was really very nice, nicer than a lot of ...
This is really like no other place I've been to, and its taken me a few days to get my bearings. My internet access is limited but I wanted to let you know that I am safe and well! I fly to Gizo tomorrow and then onto Seghe on Monday. On Sat 31st I fly to ...
