We made a late booking and arrived without any luggage as our bags weren't put on the flight back from Tanna but Janelle and Jack were wonderful such hosts that we were able to relax and make the most of a bad situation. They were really helpful, always bright and chirpy, and you really felt like nothing was too much... More

Host hospitable and helpful. Kitchen facilities where you can make your meals or meals can be made for you. The feeling is like a cross between a backpackers and motel. But facilities are great, everything is clean and lovely swimming pool. Support other positive comments about the motel and owners.

Janelle and Jack and the Travellers Accom and staff are well described in recent reviews. I,without repeating all can only now serve here to endorse a hospitable, clean well organised accommodation in Port Vila. I travelled with my 17 y.o daughter for 10 days overall with island visits and must say Travellers served as a comfort to return inbetween island... More

The hosts at the Traveller's Budget Motel were extremely hospitable and helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the location close enough for us to walk to restaurants and the waterfront. I would stay there again and recommend it to others.

Welcomed by Janelle and Jack soon as we walked in, they provide friendly assistance, and make the place homely. Perfect wee room with ensuite, clean as, with microwave and kettle. Opens to a shared courtyard and kitchen, so you can self cater quite easily. A walk down the hill to the town. excellent spot.

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our 10 night stay at Travellers. Jack and Janelle are great hosts. Jack is very cruisy and Janelle loves a chat. Janelle can recommend things to do and see, let you know how much things costs (e.g. bus trips to specific places) and will organise all your bookings for you. I would definitely recommend... More

By booking into Traveller's Budget Motel you are signing up for the assistance of Jack and Janelle, should you want it, in making the best of your trip. The motel is a professionally run set-up with clean rooms and a beautiful pool area. But what makes this place special is the opportunity to meet other travellers, if you wish, as... More

We spent a total of 8 nights at Traveller's budget and loved it. We now see why Travellers Budget is so highly ranked on Trip Advisor. For a budget hotel the value is outstanding as the rooms have a kitchenette and fridge, comfortable beds, free Wifi, hot water, pool, great staff, outstanding meals and fantastic hosts. As the motel is... More

I came here a while ago (early 2012), I always meant to write a review but kept forgetting to get around to it- I suppose I'm still on "Vanuatu Time"! From what I can see, the only changes have been improvements. Janelle will help you to sort out what's what and work out exactly where to go which was a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Traveller's Budget Motel is Port Vila's best value for money accommodation. Despite our budget category, the owner-managers have meticulously attended to every detail inside and out, to ensure your stay is relaxing and comfortable. The difference is apparent as soon as you step foot onto the property. The gardens are beautifully landscaped, rooms are tastefully decorated and well lit, showers are clean, sheets are crisp and rooms serviced daily. We believe everyone who visits Vanuatu is entitled to five-star hospitality. All rooms have cold remote controlled air-conditioning as well as ceiling fans, en-suite with shower, kitchenette, bar fridge, microwave and TV. Each room has free data and wireless internet connection. An outside nakamal with full cooking facilities overlooks a sparkling blue 8.5 Metre pool. This is a relaxing place to sit and read. Located just 10 minutes walk from the shopping and restaurant precinct of Port Vila, the beautiful lagoons, beaches and attractions are either a short walk or drive away. ... more   less
