I'd booked a night here but due to a medical emergency we had to change our booking to the next night. The staff were helpful in this regard. The only problem was changing the booking with Expedia who were/ are very unhelpful & charged me extra (as the room rate was more for the next night) even when the hotel... More

Centrally located, near shops, restaurants and beach. Nice salt water pool and complete outdoor cooking area. Clean and neat. Rooms have enough living space. There were 10 of us, with 4 rooms for the week. This was the perfect location. Also had car hire and beach push bikes for hire. Very friendly and helpful staff

We only spent one night but I'll definitely recommend. The room was clean and tidy, had everything you need to feel comfortable. Very affordable specially comparing to most of other motels/ hotels around. Staff was friend. Also the location made the difference. Right in the middle of all we needed.

Excellent location. Very cute, newly refurbished rooms. Somehow not cozy though. Run by a lovely couple who are very friendly and helpful. Outdoor kitchen is really awesome. So is the laundry. The only big thing was that there was a massive cockroach in our room one night. It either came from underneath the door or from under the refrigerator. We... More

We are pleased you enjoyed your short stay with us and made the most of our facilities. The kitchen/dining area is a very popular spot with guests. Mmmmmm...not too sure about that cockroach...it must have flown in through an open door, and if it was big, it was a jungle variety. We employ a professional pest control company to provide... More

I only had one night in Port Douglas so I wasn't looking for a resort. Given the bargain price, I wasn't expecting much but was pleased to find a generous size room, which was quiet, well equipped and furnished. Perfect for families looking to self cater thanks to the bar fridge, microwave etc. as well as outdoor kitchen alongside the... More

We spent one night there and were very pleased with the property. After having spent 30 hours in airplanes and airports and driving up from Cairns we weren't going to be too picky, but this was perfect. We flew in a day before our company's hotel became available and just needed the one night. Free parking right outside our room... More

This motel is in the process of being refurbished and is nearly complete. Our motel room was as new and very comfortable and quiet. The staff were very friendly and the motel is very good value for money. We were a very short walk to the centre of the town and all the local amenities. There is a small pool... More

Port Douglas Motel is very well situated so close to Macrossan Street, yet in a very quiet street. The family owners are extremely welcoming. The apartments are comfortable. They give a lot of impartial advice on eating and Reef tour options.
