Bird Of Paradise Hotel
‘The Bird’ is getting a bit tatty round the edges but otherwise ageing gracefully. The rooms are large, comfortable and decorated with an odd assortment of mismatched furniture...
Pacific Gardens Hotel
In the grounds of a vast, hilly expats’ residential estate with lovely lawns, jungle backdrop and adjacent river, this hotel’s premier rooms (K495) are the nicest in town and cheaper than what is on offer at The Bird...
Diwai Hut Lodge
The Diwai has a pleasant outlook within earshot of the Zokozoi River (you can’t actually see it) but it’s a good 10 minutes’ walk from the town centre. Rooms are comfortable, if plain, have tea- and coffee-making facilities and a small fridge...
Emmanuel Lodge & Guesthouse
This place has two locations and two faces. The Ikani pad has a series of self-contained units, each with two rooms – a double bed in one, two singles in the other – and a kitchen...
This place hasn’t been redecorated since independence, but the rooms are large and homey. The rate for solo travellers is a bit steep, but it’s fair value for couples. Oddly, you can’t check-in on Sundays.
Should everything be booked out during the Goroka show, book Goroka Lodge. This place hasn't been redecorated since independence. Meals available.
The whole place is bright and breezy; from the lemon and lime colour scheme on the outside to the large, airy rooms (each with a double and single bed)...
Right in the centre of town behind the post office. Clean and straight, the two-storey house has tidy shared rooms and facilities.
Mendikwae Guest House
Run by the same crowd as the Mendikwae Lodge, this place is little more than a bed in a box. It's in West Goroka.
Each room can sleep three in a double and single bed and shares a large communal lounge. Thanks to the well-equipped kitchen, self-caterers might enjoy it, but overall the place is a bit run-down.
Mendikwae Lodge Bed & Breakfast
Run by the same people that run the Mendikwae Lodge. Rooms share the large communal lounge and kitchen.
National Sports Institute
If you don’t mind being this far from the town centre, this is a good budget option. Bathroom and kitchen facilities are shared and it’s a lot like a university dorm with segregated buildings for men and women...
Research & Conservation Foundation Transit House
This good-value, dorm-style accommodation has two bunks per room, free laundry, a shared kitchen and a TV in the common room...
Salvation Army Motel Units
Another option where the grounds are prettier than the accommodation. Good for self-caterers because the units come with a kitchenette including a stove and fridge. The bigger rooms sleep four.
Also recommended should everything be booked out during the Goroka show: YWCA Guesthouse women only. Shared facilities and a communal kitchen.
