This is the perfect place to be staying if you want to be in the hub of things! It is very relaxed, clean, friendly and has free wifi. Budget value- yes- but get to meet interesting people who are happy to talk tourist tales. It is set up so that you can cook for yourself or let them cater for... More

After the trips and tours done and dusted this was the perfect venue to end our trip and be in the best spot to explore Port Vila. Jack and his lovely wife have set up a pleasant, homely motel. The rooms are well serviced with everything you need. The motel is a hub of activity, cook your own or let... More

This small and hidden gem is great when staying in Vanuatu. The owners offer great hospitality and nothing was ever a hassle. The rooms seem dated but are cosy and feel welcoming. The pool is small but nothing to flash, perfect for a vanuatu holiday with aussie standards.

I suspect that some of the reviews I have seen are somewhat optimistic! The motel rooms are clean and tidy but very small with one crowded double bed and one single plus pokey kitchen alcove and small bathroom. Has room for a small pool and one large table outside in the middle of the units. Staff are very nice and... More

Just had a fantastic experience staying at Traveller's. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff more than happy to help. Jack was very knowledgeable and made booking things to do really easy. We really enjoyed the relaxed vibe and easy going nature of Traveller's and will be booking here again if we head back to Vanuatu in the... More

Fantastic place to stay. Very helpful and knowledgeable owner and delightful staff. Ideal location.- stroll into town and bus at door. Communal areas conducive to meeting other travellers and sharing experiences.

This is an excellent mid/low price option that is very comfortable and friendly. The location is convenient walking distance to town, and is accessible for busses. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere is very pleasant to just hang out. The space is quite small, and it does not have beach/water access, but it does have a... More

Jack and Janelle have made this motel one of the friendliest places we have stayed! The rooms are clean and the staff are wonderful. Jack was the best host we have experienced and he made sure our stay was truly enjoyable. There is a main kitchen/dining area which ensures a social environment so we also met many wonderful people. We... More

Strong Internet, Warm Welcome, Cool air conditioning! The Internet was stronger here than at any of the hotels or other hotspots we used during our 11day stay. (It had been upgraded the day before our arrival 25 June 2015). Return travellers to Vanuatu know how important this is here! I booked the day before and was very lucky to secure... More

Janelle and Jack and staff make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive at Traveller's Budget Motel. The rooms are very clean and have touches to ensure your stay is a comfortable one. The Motel has character with well thought out design interesting carvings and a great indoor out door flow. The location is an easy 5 - 10... More
