REVIEW: McROYAL HOTEL, MOUNT HAGEN
mcroyalhotelpng.com +675 545 1955
The hotel is a one-minute drive from Kagamuga Airport along the airport access road, and 10 minutes from Mount Hagen’s town centre.
Local Lekson Wantaki opened this welcoming hotel in 2015 on a property that was formerly his home and a farm for kaukau (sweet potato), coffee and banana. Wantaki has ambitions for it to become of the best hotels in town. He has a renovation plan that will kick off with new rooms. Oh, and if you’ve wondered why it’s called the McRoyal, it’s not because of any royal presence, just that his children are named ‘Mc’: McQinnie, McGregor, McDellyn, McDonald and McDiane.
