I chose Outrigger from all the positive reviews I had read on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately I cannot add to them. Overall we were disappointed in our choice of accommodation in Port Douglas. It was not until I walked up to the (unmanned) reception that I realized we had stayed there back in 2003 and weren't impressed with it then. We... More

The location was great, close to everything but not on the Main Street so it wasn't too noisy. The apartment comes with a starter kit for tea/coffee/toilet paper etc but given we were only staying a few days before flying home this wasn't ideal for us. In relation to the apartment, the most important room is the bedroom and the... More

We spent many nights looking for a reasonable priced place to stay at in Port Douglas, that enabled us to walk to the main street and eateries and this place ticked all the boxes. We had a 1 bed apartment and there was plenty of room plus an outside area, even mosquito coils under the sink. Car park was a... More

Our stay at the Outrigger was amazing!! Our room was extremely clean and very comfortable. The oven, stove top and microwave made it very easy to eat in on nights that we chose to. The convenience of having a washing machine and dryer in our apartment was awesome. Our stay was so quiet we never heard anyone coming and going... More

We stayed for 7 nights and were put in a 2 bedroom apartment (although only booked a 1 bed) which was great as it gave us extra space which was nice. That was about the only good thing about the room however ( room 15) it was horribly tired with mould on the roof and walls in the bathroom, there... More

Thank you for your review. This particular room was fully renovated in April this year with a new kitchen and bathroom put in and repainted -so the comments about it being horribly tired are confusing -I'm sure the poor owner who just paid thousands of dollars for the upgrade would be devastated. If some mould had developed it happens in... More

We stayed here for six nights and were more than happy. Our apartment was roomy and had everything we could need for a comfortable stay. Great location as only two blocks away from the main street, beach and marina.

We travelled up with our 3 year old and 9 month old baby and couldn't be happier with the service,value and location. We were lucky enough to have stayed in one of the newly renovated penthouse rooms, thanks Brett and Andrea
