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

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...

Just returned from a great weekend in Port Douglas. This motel had everything that was needed to have a pleasant and enjoyable stay. I liked that it was away from the hustle and bustle from the city center of Port Douglas. The hosts were welcoming and I would stay here again.

We chose the Lazy Lizard from earlier reviews and were very pleased we did. We requested adjoining rooms and were very happy with 22 & 23, right at the far end of the property. We were sorry to leave after 6 enjoyable nights. The beds were very comfortable and spotlessly clean and the kitchenette was useful. Fill out a breakfast... More

We only stayed one night but was amazed at the size of the room and the facilities. There was heaps of storage space and a kitchenette that had some cooking equipment and plates etc for four people. The places was very clean and the bed very comforable. Well worth a visit.

We were very pleasantly surprised at the friendliness, service and overall cleanliness, size and room comfort. Given the cost per night, it was one of the best motel type accommodation we have stayed in at a beach area in our Australia travels. We were a very short distance from the many restaurants and shopping in Port Douglas. The motel was... More

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
