Lovely atmosphere; easy to find. The motel owners were frequently about and lovely to talk to and coordinated a meeting between my husband and I and two other guests, who became fast friends to us. Great conversation, and a lovely place to stay--would definitely stay again!

Amazing stay at Travellers. This accommodation is more for people who like to meet and discuss with other travelers. Nice time over there enjoying the swimming pool. Jack and Janel are very nice and helpful. They help us to find and book activities to do in Vanuatu. I definitely recommend to stay at Travellers.

We stayed here and loved it. Very warm and friendly atmosphere, the owners are nice people. Room was very good and food in the restauranto too. Busstop just next door. Wifi was working and the pool was nice to have. Hopefully we will be back one day :-)

A very welcoming place. Janelle and Jack are very friendly and helpful and we felt like part of their "family" straight away - even transported some donated T-shirts from Janelle to Tanna, for people affected by cyclone. It is also a great place to meet other travellers and swap tales. We used "Travellers" as our base in Vanuatu while we... More

I love staying at Traveller's! Jack and Janelle are the most welcoming and accommodating hosts! This was my second time staying at Travellers, both times have been amazing. Rooms are great. Staff are wonderful. Pool is beautiful. I love that if I want my own space I can head back to my room, but if I want a good laugh... More

We chose Traveller's Budget Motel because of all the positive reviews we read and found that the reviews were right. Because of scheduled flights to other islands, we made Traveller's our home base, staying from one to three nights at a time. Jack and Janelle are delightful and very helpful and accommodating. Jack even loaned us $100 worth of local... More

My husband and I stayed at Traveller's with Jack and Janelle for a total of 8 nights over our time in Vanuatu. It was a terrific little oasis in the midst of the reality of Vila. Only about 10 minutes walk (or 2 minutes on local bus) to the centre of town, it was our little hideaway. The pool was... More

I slept in the dorm room. I shared it with two people that were both very nice. Everyone was nice there : the clients, the staff and the managers. It's a place where you feel like home. Janelle and Jack the owners of the place are great and really helpful. Feel free to ask them any questions, they will be... More

All the staff remembered my name and introduced me to other travellers at breakfast. The room was clean, well-equipped for a budget standard and the air-con worked (very important in the tropics). The central courtyard and pool area is lovely and provided a pleasant visual greeting whenever I opened my door. Jack was usually available to offer advice and was... More

Cosy place where you can feel at home, cook your own, organize a BBQ, sit near the pool, unwind, make friends. The owners and their staff always find a solution and are really as helpful as possible. it's not about luxury but about much more!
