While this place is looking a little bit old and dated compared to other places in the area, the location and price win it over. It is only a stone's throw from the beach and a pleasant stroll up to the main street (only a couple of hundred meters). While the rooms were a little smaller than I had envisaged,... More

We stayed here for 5 nights over Easter. The location is exceptional with Macrossan Street and the Beach only a two minute walk. The room was OK but certainly nothing special. Reception was helpful, beds were very comfortable, decor was a little tired. We would consider staying again but would probably look elsewhere first.

The main bedroom of unit 7 had an air conditioner (A/C) in the window. The A/C was one of those old window-rattlers. It fitted uncomfortably into an old Queenslander slat windows. These windows can be opened 180 degrees, so air flow can cool the rooms. A good idea 20 years ago, but with air conditioning the only outcome of this... More

I was wary when she booked here but again she proved herself right. First room had a problem with the in-room washer and they went ahead and upgraded us to a bigger room so they could fix what was overfilling. That's superior in my opinion: not asking us to endure repairs but instead moving us up and away. Location was... More

Stayed at Garrick House for 3 nights on our first trip to Port Douglas. We had a 2 bedroom apartment on the top floor. It was well equipped and had everything we needed. Kids enjoyed the pool. The location is fantastic, being a only a few minutes walk to both 4 Mile Beach and the main shops. Overall, we found... More

I just returned home from an 8 night stay and couldn't have asked for more. The location and value for money were fantastic and Mardi at Ray White was extremely helpful. We hired a car from Cairns but could easily have done without. I have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation to anyone after apartment style accommodation.

We were a little nervous about re-visiting Port Douglas as our last trip staying at Beaches Terrace was dreadful - their car park flooded and we were left with a $2,200 excess bill. However absolutely delighted we returned. Extremely happy with our stay at Garrick House - no complaints at all. We will not hesitate to book here again

Hi, My family and I recently had a short getaway to Port Douglas. We work in the hospitality industry and found Garrick House good value for money. The staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the area - we had no idea as we usually stay in Palm Cove. The apartments themselves (we were in a 2 bedroom) were great... More

We took 2 rooms here for a week. Our booking was for 2 rooms next to each other, but on arrival we were offered one room in one block of apartments and another room in another block. The manager said the company had employed a foreign backpacker to take bookings so this caused the problem. I didn't buy that story... More
