Stayed here 1 night at the start of February and would have to say we were very happy with the room. First of all it was the cheapest hotel in port Douglas and the room was very nice and comfortable. Would stay again!!

Rooms are exactly like the photos and they've all been renovated. It is more like a boutique hotel than a motel.Great little pool for a dip after exploring the area and Four Mile Beach. Rent or...

Hello JD, Thank you for choosing to stay at the Port Douglas Motel. Your generous and kind compliments are greatly appreciated.

I was delightfully surprised on entering our room. I was not expecting much because compared to most other accommodation it is cheap. The room was gorgeous. Loved the decor. Everything looked brand new and impeccably clean. I felt as if we were the first to ever stay here. While the original building is a bit dated, the owners have taken... More

The motel could not be in a better location for people wanting to enjoy everything Port Douglas has to offer! The onsite facilities were perfect for people looking to self cater and the rooms were clean, spacious and modern. The air conditioning was a life saver, and was fast and effective. The pool and surrounding area was perfect for chilled... More

We've only spent 2 nights there, and we would certainly go back! Fantastic location, excellent staff and pretty room! The receptionist was more than happy to offer us maps and advice regarding the local attractions and things to do.
