We stayed at this hotel for 2 days on 19/20 Aug 2015, after checking other reviews. We were very happy to see our rooms perfectly clean and spacious. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, provided us towels, and spade/bucket for our 3 year old daughter for beach. I think this hotel has the cleanest rooms we have seen in... More

The Lazy Lizard is a step back in time to an era of relaxed comfort and personal attention, all in a beautiful tropical setting. This is not a fancy resort--it is a small, exceedingly well-run motor lodge on lovely landscaped grounds, with large, airy, and comfortable rooms. We had a queen/single combo room, with a well-outfitted kitchenette, shower/bathtub, dining table,... More

Unfortunately we only stayed two nights. What a shame because everything was just perfect! Our family room was perfectly clean, the kitchen well equipped and functional. Small but really nice pool, BBQ area, all this close to the beach and the marina. Alex and Aidan are extremely helpful, very friendly and welcoming.They repaired our son's broken boomerang, spent a lot... More

My daughter and myself have just spent a wonderful week at the Lazy Lizard. Our room was spotlessly clean and very spacious with very comfortable queen and single beds. Loved the good quality cotton bedding and fluffy white towels which were changed daily. The continental breakfasts were delivered to your room daily which made for a very relaxed start to... More

We arrived into port Douglas to find our backpackers shut up and nobody there to check us in! Best western staff member on night duty was really helpful letting us charge phones and recommending places to try to stay as they were full. Saved us from a night outside with nowhere to stay! Says a lot about the staff that... More

We liked our stay at the Lazy Lizard. Room is very good and clean. Because of the nice weather a walk to town is very nice if you go along the beach. The managers are really helpfull and taking time to make your holiday one to remember.

Dear Patricia, Thank you for taking the time to complete your review. Yes, the beach is a 10 minute walk from here and then a stroll along the beach and you are in the centre of everything! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and that the room was to your satisfaction. Hopefully you will remember the Lazy and... More

Having stayed here 6 or 7 times now I was sad to see the former owners move on to a well deserved 'retirement' but Aiden and Alex have stepped into the role as if old professionals. The rooms are so well serviced and nothing is any trouble. I would not consider staying anywhere else. Thanks guys - see you again... More

We had a great 5 night stay here. Aiden and Alex run a tight ship and everything works really well. Perfect base to explore Port Douglas and its environs. They helped us book trips and gave us great advice on restaurants. Would thoroughly recommend.

We really enjoyed our four night stay at the Lazy Lizard. We felt welcomed right from the start! Our room was spacious, cool and clean - more than what we could have wanted.

Very friendly staff at check in, basic room but very clean and comfortable. The room came with 2 beds and a little kitchen and bathroom with bathtub. Beds were very comfortable. It is a little bit out of town but would stay again. Very affordable prices too.
