Summer Institute Of Linguistics Guesthouse
This a great option for groups and families, with self-contained rooms that have several beds and a clean bathroom and kitchen. Budget rooms are similarly clean and share a communal lounge, kitchen and bathroom. Book well in advance as it is often full.
The rooms are fairly small and very average. The manager however has contacts in the Siassi Islands and is planning a guesthouse there.
The cheapest place around in a town where you get what you pay for. It's noisy and run down and thankfully no longer takes many foreigners as most of the rooms are full with long-term residents. Try asking for a transit room.
The ‘Mello’ has four-star aspirations, three-star amenities and a five-star price tag. On weekends rooms are slightly discounted from the rack rates.
Wau & Around
In Bulolo, Pine Lodge has passable rooms and food. Each room sleeps two and comes with private facilities.
Anga Development Authority
Menyamya & Aseki
The Anga Development Authority has a guesthouse but food is not always available. Alternatively, ask around and you'll soon find someone to spend the night with.
Salvation Army Guesthouse
Set in sprawling grounds near the shops and PMVs at Eriku, each of the self-contained, motel-style units sleeps two and comes with kitchenettes that were at their best 20 years ago. The staff are very friendly.
Bulolo Vocational Center
Wau & Around
A cheaper option is the Bulolo Vocational Center, but you'll need to bring your own food.
Huon Motors Store
Huon Motors Store also operates a guesthouse that sleeps four, and its car is for rent. Sells a few basic tinned goods but no vegetables.
Pilgrim Village Guesthouse
Set around a courtyard, this place has a few rooms that specialise in well-worn decor and a strict adherence to 1960s style. The rooms are small but there is a communal lounge.
Senior Flierl Seminary Guesthouse
Calling ahead is vital as they need to send a truck to collect you from the wharf - a 20 minute drive from the Seminary. There are cooking facilities but bring your own food. Locals can guide you to nearby Butaweng falls.
Huon Peninsula Lodge
Set in a well-kept garden on the coast, fan rooms and air-con rooms share a bathroom and kitchen; there's one self-contained room...
Everything about Klinkii is pretty basic, but it's cheap and cheery. Rooms have shared bathroom, except two that also have air-con. Local-style meals available.
Set in lush, tropical grounds on the outskirts of town, this homey, sky-blue guesthouse is 200m off the main road. It’s a great budget option, and while rooms are shared you can often end up with a room to yourself...
Formerly a nightclub; there's still a bar with pokies in the members bar upstairs. There isn't a significant difference between the cheaper standard rooms and the overpriced deluxe rooms; both sleep up to three...
Huon Gulf Motel
Not the jewel in the Coral Sea Hotels' crown. Rooms in the newer wing are better (and more expensive). The 'wantok's pizza' - the super supreme of Papuan pizza - is the in-house speciality of the restaurant here.
Lae Travellers Inn
Clean, quiet, professional and centrally located, this is the pick of Lae’s midrange options. Standard rooms have satellite TV and a kettle, while the ‘budget’ rooms have a fan and shared bathroom...
Lae International Hotel
Self-described as ‘an oasis of luxury’, the International is easily the smartest digs in town – not that the competition is particularly steep...
Close to town and tight security; the rooms here are largely airless boxes although the upstairs rooms have larger windows. The self-contained rooms have air-con, the budget rooms, a fan.
St Balmer Guesthouse
It's BYO everything except coconuts and firewood for St Balmer Guesthouse on Tami Island.
On Tami Island ask for Willie Silas who runs the Tami Guesthouse although it's BYO everything except coconuts and firewood.
