I rang several times from Perth and was delighted with the friendly service I received from Jim and Penny, it is very important to me that the owners/managers are welcoming and helpful, and both Pennny and Jim were that. Three of us stayed two nights in the comfortable, spotlessly clean room with a well equipped kitchette. One of us had... More

We wanted to self cater in Port Douglas and this motel had all the facilities we needed. Penny and Jim were always friendly and helpful. The laundry facilities are a bit dodgy, but that is a minor thing. It is a little away from the centre of town, but the tariff is about half that of more central accommodation. It... More

Recently stayed in this establishment overnight, attending a meeting next day. Very helpful and friendly staff. Nice big room but a little dated and dark, great towels. Had the continental breakfast in room which was OK. Only downside is that all rooms face car park and you can hear people having conversations outside - a little distracting. Would stay again.

We selected this place as a reasonably priced option for a family stay (2 adults, 2 kids 9 & 11). We booked the family room which turned out to be two huge rooms, one with two beds, one with a big double bed, the kitchen and lounge. The rooms were spotless, the beds comfortable and the kitchen had enough gear... More

Arrived here after long drive from up half way up Cape York. We hadn't booked on advance, so it was sheer luck. The studio was extremely roomy and faultlessly clean and prepared. Plenty of parking for our big (2.3 more high) 4x4. Service very friendly, especially as we were pretty grubby and covered in red dust. Loved the bath! Very... More

We just stayed one night after a trip to Cape Tribulation and Port Douglas is close enough to Cairns airport to use as a base before flying. We were glad of the laundry facilities and put on a large wash as soon as we arrived. Owners were friendly and helpful. The kitchenette would have been an asset if we were... More

Very clean, but don't come for the amenities. I chose this hotel because it was in the middle of a long family vacation and I was looking forward to having fun in Port Douglas as well as knocking out our laundry. The laundry closed at 8 pm (last load needed to be prior to 7 pm because the "dryer doesn't... More

There is little to fault with the Lazy Lizard Motor Inn, but we were only there for a few hours as we arrived late and checked out early. As such we didn't check out the facilities of the establishment and these comments are on the room only. The room was clean. It is average sized for a triple share, as... More
