We are thrilled we chose Traveller's Budget Motel and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Port Vila. The best thing is how welcome Jack and Janelle make you feel as if you are family. So instead of the usual impersonal hotel attitude you are greeted with "What would you like for breakfast and what are your plans for the day?" Meals... More

Janelle & Jack thanks for all your support and having made my stay in Vanuatu unforgettable! There is so much great feedback for this little motel and I can only repeat what other travellers write. It's THE place to stay when you go to Port Vila. The rooms are clean and have all you need, breakfast and dinner is great,... More

So, My first time in Vanuatu and chose Travellers based on other reviews here, and boy am I glad I did. I am an experienced traveller so probably would of had a great time anywhere but Jack and Janelle just made my whole stay a breeze with their fantastic place, local knowledge and experience and attention to detail. All my... More

I stayed in Traveller's Budget Motel for about 10 days and really enjoyed every day there. Jack and Janelle make you feel at home and introduce you to other travelers making it a sociable place to meet other travelers. Janelle also arranged my entire itinerary in Vanuatu while I was there and made all my bookings! You can walk into... More

I could not have found a better place to stay in Port Vila than Travellers! I was travelling by myself and wanted a place that would allow me to easily meet other people and make friends. The way the place is set up, around a pool with common seating and eating areas are so conducive to meeting and talking to... More

Janelle is good at helping you plan and organize what activities to do in Port Villa and nearby islands.They also have the connections in Tanna. And Janelle is a scuba... More

Travellers is a little oasis in Port Vila. Well appointed rooms, very clean and tidy and a great communal area to have breakfast and meet other people, it has a very relaxed but sociable atmosphere. Jack and Janelle make this place what it is, they make you feel very welcome and Janelle will help you organise anything you want to... More

A really nice motel. Very clean and comfortable rooms, tasty breakfasts, nice pool, very friendly hosts. A great base for exploring Port Vila and Efate. Also, of the best nakamals (kava bars) in Vila (shefa nakamal) is just a 5 minute walk away from the motel.

Overall excellent and cosy! Jack and Janelle are very helpful and a lot of fun. Lovely breakfast and close to walk into town. On our last day Jack allowed us to stay in our room until our flight in the afternoon as the room wasn't needed and this was free of charge. Will be back!

Stayed here with my sister for one week, we agree that this is one of the best hotels we've ever stayed at! What really makes this place is the staff. The owners, the chef and Agnes were all so friendly and welcoming. They came with great tips for what to do in Vanuatu and no matter what we asked they... More
