Stayed here for 11 nights & was dissapointed on the first night. Old style air conditioner was noisy & inadequate for the size of the room, A split system would be a major improvement. Ants all through the bathroom, 1 small television, no dvd player, no music player. A clock radio that looked like it was picked up from a... More

We stumbled across this at a great rate on last minute. Pleasantly surprised by the room (we were in a studio but with small kitchen incl stove top), comfy bed, nice overlooking the pool which was set in leafy surrounds with a little rock waterfall. A block or two from everything in town yet very peaceful. Almost didn't want to... More

For many places that advertise themselves as "apartments" they need to look at this place. This was a great sized apartment. Anything smaller is not and apartment. The staff were very friendly and helpful, even suggesting places to eat and drink. The facilities were great and i enjoyed my stay here. The only thing would be that they could do... More

Don't expect any room service when staying here. You will have a meagre supply of coffe/tea/milk and will need to promptly bring supplies in from Coles. You'll probably want replacement bathroom towels by day 2 or 3 and will need to hunt down a staff member to get replacements (and there may be a slight note of reluctance). The kitchen... More

Rooms should be renovated and cleaned. Kitchenette was not well equiped and dishes were dirty. Covered parking. Price to high compared to other hotels at Port Douglas. AC was really loud!!! Location quite good.

We stayed here back in September and were really impressed. The staff were friendly and helpful, we had a change of plan with our transport which they were able to sort out instantly for us. The hotel has an excellent central position, 5 minutes walk to the main shopping/eating street and 5-10 minutes walk in the other direction to the... More

Very nice place to stay to see the Pt Douglas area. Hotel is centrally located between 4 mile beach and "downtown" (OK, it's a small town). Small well equipped kitchen plus a BBQ area by pool. Not the best place to stay if you have small school age kids as the pool has no shallow areas or hot tub. This... More
