Lonely Planet review

The Highlander, part of the Coral Sea chain, has all the amenities you’d expect from a 1st-class hotel, including pool-side restaurants, bars, tennis and volleyball courts, and a 24-hour foreign-exchange desk. The 60 rooms are self-contained and a little soulless but the foyer and restaurants got a major upgrade in 2010 and are easily the smartest in town.

Our independent authors have visited Highlander Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Mt Hagen.
