We stayed here for four nights while exploring the Port Douglas area. The spacious room was very comfortable and had just the right amenities we needed. Jim and Penny were very cordial and provided great information about the area. Jim even called and booked THE perfect table for my birthday dinner at Salsa. There are other places to stay in... More

The personal service from Jim and Penny is the main hallmark of this well situated and excellent motel. Rooms are clean and well equipped. The continental breakfast, delivered on the previous evening, is more than adequate and offers guests flexibility and speed in the mornings. The little pool is a wonderful facility to enjoy after a sweaty day in the... More

We picked this lodging from Trip Advisor and were not led astray - it's a good place to stay and the price was excellent. It's a traditional one-floor motel but it's immaculately clean and well maintained. It's also not old or dated. As a bonus it has a nice little pool (small, not for swimming really) to paddle around or... More

This is the best value, best Motel we've ever stayed in! The staff were really informative and helpful. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and equipped with everything you could need. The swimming pool is small but just lovely. We were able to lie in the tepid water and watch parrots flying home for the night! They are amazing - like... More

I am so glad I chose this motel. Penny was very helpful and a lovely lady. The room was fantastic and very clean. Large room with TV and lounge chair, dining room table. Kitchen was well stocked with everything. Comfortable beds. Quiet and peaceful. Cost effective and close to the main street and 4 mile beach.

We had a wonderful stay here. Jim was a great host, he couldn't have been more helpful and booked us on a fabulous tour to the great barrier reef. The rooms were very spacious, clean and loved the dvd collection as we were very jet lagged when we first arrived. We could walk into town but generally would recommend having... More
