Port Douglas Motel is a very nice resort placed in an excellent position: 2 minutes walk from the beach, 10 minutes walk from the Marine, just close to the center. It has car parking, swimming pool, shared kitchen and laundry and whichever service that can make confortable your stay. But the real added value is the staff: professional, kind, helpful.... More

I had the absolute pleasure of spending one week at the Port Douglas Motel, hosted by the lovely Lillian, John and Bernie. The room is amazing - spacious, clean, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you could possibly want for an enjoyable stay (in particular handy kitchenette, great hot showers, bright decor and super comfortable bed). It was peaceful and... More

The hospitality of Lilian, John and Bernie is a pleasure, right from communication pre-booking through to checkout. We stayed ten days and this is real value for money. The Motel does not aspire or claim to be a 5-star resort, but ours was a 5-star experience with friendly and personal service you couldn't get from a large 5-star resort. There... More

I took my parents for a road trip to PD on the weekend, and stayed at the Port Douglas Motel. I got my car park right in front of my room, and the room is newly renovated, and super clean too. Nice timber floor and furniture btw. The motel is very near to the famous 4 mile beach (probably 3... More

We Had a Good Stay here. Parking was, of course, right outside my room. It's within 30-second of walking to the main street of Port Douglas. My room was surprisingly bug-free! And it was newly renovated too. The front-desk host was very friendly. We had a good stay there.

We selected this motel due to the good reviews on TA. However I would recommend that you consider what you want out of the accommodation, as we should have done and researched more thoroughly. We stayed at this motel at the end of an extensive trip around Australia and the purpose of the stay was for R&R before returning to... More

Great location, not too far from main restaurants stripes, the wharf for Quicksilver tour to the Great Barrier Reef and the beach. The room was clean, comfortable and a BBQ area near the pool to allow you to cook if you don't feel like to eat out. Overall we enjoyed our stay and the staff was friendly and helpful.

We were welcomed into motel by freindly staff and the rooms were comfortable and had a great decor. It was an easy walk to the restaurants, shops and the beach. We made use of the laundry and guest kitchen which was clean and tidy with a convenient pantry and bbq. Loving family run business. Thank you for a wonderful stay.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Port Douglas Motel. The hosts were fabulous. The room had been renovated to a very good standard and was spacious. It is a very short walk to the main street and beach. The bathroom and shower recess was very roomy and the bed comfortable. Everything was clean and well maintained.
