.. to the other reviews here really. The proprieters (Jim and Penny) were very helpful - including giving good advice on where to eat/drink and on the excursions available. Not really that far from the centre of the small town - I walked it in less than half an hour, more than once. The room was a king studio; very... More

My Wife and I stayed at the Lazy Lizard for four nights during our month long trip to the east coast of Australia. The hotel is great value and the owners Jim & Penny are fantastic hosts.

Port Douglas is a tourist trap with prices to match but this motel offers extremely good value. We had the Queen studio room and were impressed with how big, clean and well furnished the place was. He manager was very helpful and friendly. This motel is not your usual basic offering, is exceptionally comfortable and well located

The welcome I received from Penny, the owner of the Lazy Lizard really set the tone for the 5 nights of my stay. It is a delightful place to stay, the room is large, the kitchen area equipped with everything one could need and the bathroom likewise. Yes, it is a bit of a walk into the main area but... More

Jim and Penny are very friendly managers and quite helpful. Location is close to Port Douglas and activities. A short drive by car or 20 or so minute walk to main town. Best Western was very clean and spacious with outside facilities well taken care of including a barbecue and small pool. The rooms were comfortable with fridge and microwave... More

We are so glad that we chose The Lazy Lizard for our stay in Port Douglas. The room we had was quiet and very spacious with good facilities and it was spotless. We were given a continental breakfast on a tray each day which was plenty for the two of us. The grounds are beautifully kept and planted with interesting... More

We found this motel in an Internet search and it lived up to expectations in every respect. The room was comfortable and well equipped. Cooking facilities were limited to a microwave but there was a barbecue for general use. The pool wasn't huge but very adequate for a decent swim. Jim and Penny were excellent hosts, Jim giving us very... More

This hotel is a good option if staying in Port Douglas. Just know it is between a 20 to 30 minute walk {depending how fast you walk} to the main part of town. And if you have a car, you can just park in town, there are plenty of public parking spaces. The beds were ok, the mattress was a... More

So helpful, booking all our trips and even advice re our onward trip to New Zealand. A bit of a walk to the main shopping area, but Port Douglas is just so pretty, we really... More
