We stayed two days at the Port Douglas Motel. It is priced right, offers a fantastic location and the rooms are clean and comfortable. When we first arrived we were greeted by Lyllian and Bernie, two hosts that could not do enough for you. They ensured we were well informed of our options while in Port Douglas. Our first night...

My husband and I came up to stay in Port for one night as we are locals in Kewarra Beach. We have stayed in numerous accommodation places in Port and this is great place for a short stay. The accommodation is bright and breezy and Lillian really makes you welcome. Thank you. Will be back very soon!

My daughter picked this motel for its location and it was spot on. A short 4 minute walk to 4 mile beach and the same distance in the other direction to the main street in Port Douglas. Recently taken over by new owners trying hard to lift the old image, and they're doing well. The beds are really comfortable and... More

However, we do provide kitchenettes (which include kettles, toasters, microwave, fridge and utensils) for those guests that want to prepare their own breakfast. There is also a convenience store only two minutes away. Whether a... More

Myself and my Mum stayed here for one night in Port Douglas. The location is amazing, about 1 minute walk from the main strip, the staff are really friendly and the room was lovely, bright and clean with a great shower. I definitely would highly recommend.

A clean, cute motel. It looked freshly painted. The room was comfortable and had a small kitchen with a few dishes and utensils. They also had free dvds to borrow in the office. We liked the location too as it was close to many restaurants and shops.

Great Motel, located in central Port Douglas, just a few metres from the ocean and the shops. The Motel itself is completely renovated and spotlessly clean and modern. We loved being there.
