4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

Jack and Janelle are what make this place. They were so welcoming and helpful and just fun to talk with. Gave us genuine recommendations on things to do and helped arrange it all. The lodge is good value for money and I really enjoyed the breakfasts each morning. The rooms were simple, had everything you need and were very clean.... More

We stayed at the place for 2 nights. Atmosphere is really nice. there is also affordable food. The stuff is friendly and helpful, but not too much up to date with current offers/options. Still a good start for arriving at in Villa, even though there are cheaper places around, which you can't find in the Lonely planet or on TripAdvisor.

Janelle and Jack and their great staff (Agnes, John, Marie and John etc) treated us like family. Jack gave us all the info we needed to get around Vila. Played guitar around the pool, walked to town easily, and could catch a 'bus' outside the gate. room was air conditioned, comfy and clean. We would go back. Delicious meals served... More

We had a great experience at Traveller's Budget Motel with Janelle and Jack, who are so kind and helpful. On our first night we were delayed from Sydney to Port Vila by 11 hours, so didn't arrive until 3am - but Janelle emailed us during the day to say she had seen the delay and would arrange everything so we...

Stayed here for my birthday in March and couldn't have had a better time! All the staff are lovely and really honest when it comes to help you booking up tours. My only regret is I didn't get to spend longer here and also get out onto some of the small islands around. Yes there are cheaper places, but as... 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
