We stayed for a week with more than 20 other family members, we basically took over half of the entire premises.. we re-configured the rooms to suit each family... nothing was too much for Aidan and Alex in assisting us to have the most comfortable stay we could.. right down to the very entertaining presentation of all the tourist activities...

My family and I spent 1 week at the Lazy Lizard. The family room was clean and fresh with more than enough room for all of us. The beds were more comfortable than our own beds at home. Aidan and Alex's knowledge of the activities that we could do as a family was priceless. Thank you again. The Alexander's. Far... More

Just wanted to share my experience of dealing with Aidan Host at the Best Western Port Douglas. He was so helpful and kind. It really made a big difference. This motel was a reasonable standard and quite economical.

This is a great place to stay if you don't want to be in a resort. Our room was very clean and comfortable, the continental breakfast that was included was generous, and the location was pleasantly quiet and peaceful. It took us about 25 minutes to walk to the main shopping/restaurant area, but it's flat all the way and the... More

Stayed at the Lazy Lizard for 3 nights. Aidan and Alex had just taken over from Jim and Penny and met them all. Very welcoming and friendly. Nothing way too much trouble. They were happy to look after our luggage while we waited the day for a airport shuttle. Rooms are very nice and clean. Very well looked after. Plenty... More

Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids) stayed in a family suite that was very spacious and comfortable - a large room with a queen bed, pull-out couch, dining area, and a kitchenette with everything you need to cook and eat a simple meal, plus a second bedroom. It was great to be able to eat some meals... More

For the price you couldn't ask for more. Everything was top notch: clean rooms, friendly and helpful management, great self-catering facilities and central location to explore the Barrier Reef. I would recommend the Lazy Lizzard to anyone who is looking for a comfortable way to explore Port Douglas and the surrounds

This isn't luxury accommodation but it is clean (very), quiet (also very) and great value. Service is very good - When our host Penny asked if there was anything that I needed after checking in, I responded, " Yes - a cold beer." She promptly got me one 'on-the-house'. The rooms are large with separate seating and dining (2 person)... More
