Really friendly welcome - nothing was too much trouble, and we asked lots of questions!!(all answers happily provided). They even booked all our tours and arranged pickups at a discount; Great central location. Fresh, clean, quiet, bright and cheerful. Spacious and all the little comfort details attended to. Walking distance to all the highlights of Port Douglas. Would definitely recommend... More

My partner and I didn't actually stay at Port Douglas Motel but we hired a Hyundia Getz from Go Topless Car rentals (part of the motel) at the beginning of this month. Usually the cars are ready for collection from 8am once being returned by the previous customer. However, my partner and I were due to do a skydive in... More

We had 7 nights in a family room with 2 teenagers and couldn't fault the comfort or cleanliness.The location is fantastic only 3 minutes to the beach (even supplied with free beach towels) and 2 minutes to Macrossan st.The owners couldn't have been more helpful with organising tours for us.And all at a very affordable cost. Hopefully we will be... More

We stayed in room 3 And loved our overnight stay.A beautiful exceptionally clean and modern room with a toaster,kettle,microwave and a bar fridge.Lovely big walk in shower,nice towels and I loved the bedding especially that gorgeous doona cover.As our vehicle wouldn't fit in the parking they let us park in their yard next door.Bernie and Lillian were very friendly.

Parking was cramped to say the least, why not dump the smokers chairs outside their rooms and make it easier to park your car-after all this is a Motel not a Hotel. I would have given it 4 stars but found someone elses dental floss in the shower on arrival.

We have considered your review. As you occupied a family room, there are no small tables and chairs outside this upstairs area. The hallway is uncluttered. I am totally at a loss to note your reference to "smoker's chairs outside their rooms". The small tables and chairs are located outside some of the downstairs rooms. These are for the comfort...

We stayed 4 nights here and had a great stay. Our room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. A mini kitchen with fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster was great for breakfast. The big walk in shower was perfect. The room also had free wifi. There is a covered kitchen and barbie area outside for guest use. Also a laundry. We... More

We only stayed one night, but were impressed. The room was large with a new bathroom and undercover parking. It is an older style hotel, but very clean and comfortable, also with a little kitchenette.The manager was very friendly and helpful. Great location, right in the middle of town. The pool was only small - not a resort style motel... More
