We loved staying at Lazy Lizard Inn - our family of 5 had 2 adjoining units which worked well. Jim & Penny are so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. They know such a lot about the area and attractions and had heaps of great advice. Jim is impartial and can recommend which tours to take, can book... More

Swimming pool is a bit small but its deep enough for a good swim. Used the BBQ and had an enjoyable evening at the BBQ by the pool. Host couple are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is a... More

I've stayed here several times in the last few months while working in the district. The rates are very reasonable especially when you consider the location and peak tourist season. The rooms are spacious, quiet and immaculate. The motel is located about 20-30minute stroll ( along the beach if you prefer) to the center of town but frequent shuttle busses... More

We recently returned from six week holiday in Australia with our final destination Port Douglas to tour the Daintree Rainforest, Cape Tribulation and the Great Barrier Reef. The Lazy Lizard Hotel was recommended to us by friends who live in Melbourne. Upon arrival, Jim checked us in and made a recommendation for a tour group to go out snorkeling on... More

This was a good place to stay in PD - good value compared to some and a clean and reasonably well appointed room. Beds were comfortable and it was quiet at night. Owners (Penny and Jim) were very pleasant and helpful about places to eat..

Excellent place to stay in Port Douglas. Great value. Great hosts. Not a 5 star hotel, but the owners make up for it by their gracious attitude. Very helpful in setting up tours and giving info about the reef and rainforest and restaurants. Very clean, quiet and spacious rooms. If I go back to Port Douglas I will definitely stay... More

We followed the Tripadvisor advice and the Lazy Lizard surpassed expectations. It all comes down to care for, and pride in the property and Penny and Jim certainly go the extra mile. We had a car but walked to town and the beach, although you mightn't want to do that every day. We had a large room with queen and... More

Bathroom was good size. Good amount of coffee, tea and some cookies. Comfortable bed. Friendly staff (im guessing he was the owner actually). They also... More

This is an older-style motel with 18 units in a direct line back from the road; a couple of units at the end stand facing the driveway. There is some screening and attractive tropical planting between units, but the layout means there is no real privacy if you want to sit outside. You will be aware of your neighbours, and... More

We stayed for 6 nights having read the reviews. Huge spacious room with a modern kitchen area and bathroom. All spotless and comfortable. A bit of a,walk to the centre but all on the flat so no problem. Great base for exploring and advice was always helpful when sought. Laundry facilities were fine. Pool looked nice and the Bbq area...
