Great location, very friendly staff, very good meals, excellent help booking tours and transfers, good advice on exchange of money saving us nearly 7%, very nice courtyard area. Only disappointment was lack of TV in room.

I loved my 2 nights at the Travellers! Jack, Jenelle and all the staff really make u welcome and guests feel like an extended part of the family. Nothing is too much trouble and Jenelle is a great source of information and advice. The rooms are comfortable but u spend most of ur time in the communal area around the... More

We spent a week with Janelle and Jack, and we're glad we did! Our first visit to Vanuatu will not be our last. Our hosts' habit of introducing fellow guests to each other meant we could share experiences and travel tales, and greeting the friendly staff in the morning was always the prelude to a delicious and surprisingly cheap Continental...

This was my first trip to Vanuatu and it certainly won't be my last. I picked Travellers because of the reviews and it all lived up to expectations. I wanted to explore the Island rather than lounge around the pool and Janelle did a wonderful job of booking an excellent variety of tours. Agnes, John and the inimitable Miss P... More

I stayed at Travellers for a month while undertaking some work experience at the hospital. Not only did Janelle give me an affordable rate for a month long stay, but she also offered me lots of advice of things to do in the area. But most importantly, travellers is a friendly place to stay and you feel at home. The... More

We were introduced to Travellers by a couple that had stayed many times and we are very happy. Friendly, clean and comfortable. An oasis. Meals offered are delicious, staff are very friendly and the owners treat you as one of family and offer all the help and advice you could want. Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper.

Travellers is a fantastic base in Port Vila. The staff and owners are fantastic! Janelle can book all of your tours and will recommend the best tour for you. Jack is super friendly with lots of practical advice.

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

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
