Stayed for 3 nights, April 27-30. Reserved one room online at the nightly rate of $106 AUD. My wife and I had read all the glowing reviews about the motor inn and the owners, so we decided to make the Lazy Lizard our stop in Port Douglas. Our room (#12) had one queen and one single bed along with a... More

We stayed at the Lazy Lizard for 4 nights. The hosts are very accommodating and brought us breakfast supplies every evening so we could eat breakfast at our leisure in the morning. The room was clean, quiet and well situated, assuming you have a car, for anything you want to do in Port Douglas.

Our second time staying at the Lazy Lizard, excellent on both counts. Jim and Penny are great hosts and the location allows an easy walk to Macrossan St or the beach. Have bicycles available to ride around what is a substantially flat Port Douglas area. Rooms always clean, good space inside and out. Lovely to be able to sit outside... More

Penny and Jim are superb hosts, and nothing is too much trouble as evidenced by Jim patiently dealing with our numerous email enquiries about which Reef trip to book. And thank goodness we took his advice: our day on the Aquarius was second to none, and an experience we shall never forget - definitely the highlight of our trip to... More

Kind, gentle, honest folks are Penny & Jim owners of the Lazy Lizard. Our room was spotless with plenty of room. I want one of their mattresses for home. We also enjoyed the sitting area by our door. After touring with Jim's recommendations a dip in the pool was refreshing. Best value for your money with a nice continental breakfast.... More

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
