Friends in Melbourne told me to come here and they were right! Port Douglas Motel has an exceptional staff, particularly Bernie; the room was immaculate & beautifully furnished; everything seemed new. It's close to all the stores, restaurants, beach & marina. Extended my stay (it's that great) & hated to leave.

I stayed at Port Douglas Motel for two nights at the end of a six-month plus trip traveling through Asia and Australia. I'd decided to treat myself to a nicer place than I would usually stay on my traveller budget and absolutely made the right decision when choosing this place. The room (I stayed in room 2) was impeccable. It... More

Could not believe my eyes when checking TripAdvisor for Port Douglas accommodation, this motel came up as one of the best. We had the unfortune to stay here a couple of years ago, arrived late afternoon into Port Douglas that day and DIDN'T check TripAdvisor for the ratings, the place was an absolute dump and I rated it accordingly.( since...

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children, aged 9 and 10 years old and we stayed in a family guest room. We requested 2 single beds and one double bed. The room was perfect for our family requirements. It was spacious, spotlessly clean, included a well thought out kitchenette, as well as dining table and chairs. We... More

Recently spent 2 nights here while visiting the Daintree Rainforest. The motel is conveniently located and there was ample parking. We just got off from a liveaboard trip and the spacious rooms felt like a really luxury after spending many nights in a small cabin. The staff were very friendly and the check-in and check-out process was really quick and... More

We had great service from the staff at the motel especially as we when we arrived we discovered we had booked the wrong dates, we even had an upgrade!! The large room was bright and clean with everything you needed, and it's a short walk to the centre of town. Highly recommended.

I arrived in Port Douglas after spending a month in New Zealand camping and staying in hostels. Port Douglas Motel was my first room and bathroom to myself in 4 weeks! It was so welcomed. I stayed at the PD Motel for 5 nights and couldn't have been happier. The bed was great, the owners are super nice and the... More

Thanks for your review of our Motel. You can't beat a comfortable clean bed for a good night's sleep. You looked very refreshed when you departed our property. The kitchen/dining area is a big hit. Everybody that does not want to go out for dinner has a great time cooking there and all you need is to buy the food!!!all... More
