Grand Eastern Hotel Labasa
There's very little about the Grand Eastern Hotel via Google so they need to get more publicity out there! My pics are -1. from a pamphlet when we visited there. 2. an artist's view of the same hotel!
Some of our relatives have stayed there and been happy with the facilities.
Advertisements about hotels in Fiji can be deceptive though. Perhaps the swimming pool is smaller than indicated. Perhaps the river is not pristine. But the mountains are grand, and the people are friendly. It's 2 minutes walk to the main shopping street. Once owned by the Gibsons when it was a quaint colonial style hotel, our eldest sister-in-law worked there in the 40s, a niece in the 80s. Today it's used mainly by visiting professionals and businessmen I reckon.
