My husband Bruce and I loved our stay here, and Lillian and John were excellent hosts. Would recommend this stay for families and couples. We loved the additional outdoor kitchen pool side. We're traveller's from Canada and stayed in January 2015. Cindy and Bruce.

Long time I didn't have such a good stay in a motel/hotel/apartment. Lillian & John are absolutely lovely, always ready to help you and make you comfortable. Rooms are more than clean, spacious. There are all you need to have a good and relaxing stay. Thanks for everything. Be sure I'll stay in Port Douglas Motel if I come back... More

We stayed here for one night after spending 9 nights in a camper travelling up from Sydney and it was BLISS! Lillian was lovely and really helpful. The motel was perfect for walking to the shops,beach and restaurants and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Whats included in your room is second to none. The facilities go above and beyond what's normal in a motel. Great facilities in the outdoor kitchen beside the pool. Just bring your meat to cook on the bbq and a salad, everthing else is supplied free of charge. Clean tidy and very comfortable. We would recommend staying there to anyone... More

Firstly, thank you for your phone call to thank me for your stay with us, and secondly, thanks for this review. Like yourselves, we like to think all of our guests have a great stay and our Motel is "their home away from home". Travel safely back to N.Z. Since you left, we have had a bit of rain so... More

Such a great place to stay, Lillian is super lovely and so helpful, the rooms are beautifully clean and spacious and the motel just has a lovely feel to it. Could not recommend it more. In the centre of town close to the beach just loved out our stay. Trent and Monique

This is definitely my place to stay in Port, best location for beach or town. The managers are genuinely friendly and helpful, felt like I was at home. Rooms were super clean (I mean spotless) modern and spacious, best of all the beds are amazingly comfortable. Absolute bargain price!!!!!

I stayed at the motel for two nights - and I can honestly say they are among the friendliest and most helpful hosts I've ever met. The motel is clean, nice and right in the center of Port Douglas. They'll help you out with trips, transfers or dinners - so basically, stay here!

My Girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in early Jan 2015. The loaction is great, step out the door and you are in the middle of town. The staff was fantastic, especially Lillian! Generous size rooms and rather affordable. Loved our stay! Jamie & Belinda

My partner and I decided to stay in Port Douglas fairly last minute. With only a couple of days to find a place before being there, accommodation prices had hiked up and we were struggling to find something that was in our budget. Not only was the Port Douglas Motel exceptional value for money at $115 per night (much less... More
