If there was a six-star, I would award it, this place is really something, the rooms are good size & clean, aircon works great, lots of hot water for a leisurely shower, even umbrellas in the room for the daily summer downpour. Wifi is free and available in the eating & social area although not in the rooms unless you... More

The pool is great for swimming but is in a shaded area so not so great for sunbathing. Great value and easy to walk to town. Good security. Sociable if you want to be with other travellers. I would stay again

We booked for three nights, and we stayed for eight. From the moment you first arrive Jack and Janelle, the owners, make you feel part of a big and happy family, and no one is left out! Janelle must be Vanuatu's expert in helping to plan trips, and travel to the other islands. It's small and intimate with a fabulous... More

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

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
