“Excellent Location and Lovely Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011

We stayed at the Meridian in October 2011 for one week in a Studio Superior room with a pool deck. The staff were lovely and the room was neat and tidy and we loved the direct access to the pool. The hotel was close to the main street and the marina, making it very easy to go out and get dinner or an ice cream. Lovely tropical plants in the garden and around the pool made for a nice view. Excellent value for money as we were able to take advantage of a stay 7, pay 6 deal advertised on the hotels website. Highly recommend a stay at the Meridian.

Room Tip: The Studio Superior room with a pool deck was great. Convenient access to the pool.

We only have good things to say about this place!
Upon arrival we were met by one of the owners, John. A very relaxed man (That´s a compliment). He made us feel very welcome and offered lots of tips on restaurants and tours to take. I´m sure he gets some commission for booking various trips, but that´s well deserved. We went on several tours booked by John and the outer reef tour with the Poseidon was a major high light on our 4 week tour of Australia!
We stayed 4 nights in a studio. Ok size, very clean, good bed, and all you need. You share a washing machine and a drier with the neighbouring apartment.
Continental breakfast consists of a stocked fridge in the studio/apartment, which was a nice touch. We had bread, various jams, butter, fruit, muesli, milk, juice and fresh strawberries.
Location is perfect. Just a few minutes walk from Four Mile Beach, the Marina, several good restaurants - well, basically all of Port Douglas.
The girl at the reception was outstanding when our departure transfer did not show (Bus company made a mistake). Bus company had no intention of rectifying their mistake, so the girl at the reception (So sorry, but I forgot her name), arranged for an alternate company to pick us up within 15 minutes (We had a flight to catch out of Cairns).
Would stay here again and would recommend to anyone visiting wonderful Port Douglas!

We stayed at the meridian for one week in sept and had a great stay. The hotel has an ideal location and a very nice staff that was helpful in booking activities. Though there do seem to be some hotels nearby that are comparably nice I would prefer the meridian as walks to dinner and the marina would not have been as convenient. The pool is nice and looked clean for the most part, though it was hard to get back up to rooms with pool decks once in there. Hot tub could have been hotter. Agree with some other postings that the extra minimal costs for shampoos and pool towels seems a little nickel and dimey but we got the towels anyway. The room was a bit small as we didn't get the apt but we also packed for two weeks so we had a lot of luggage. Oherwise the room size would have been fine. All in all, would recommend this place to others and would stay again.

Very friendly staff
Very clean rooms
Nice swimming pool, were you really can swim (long and deep enough)

We took a standard studio but were, for some unknown reason, upgraded to a superior studio!

We really enjoyed our stay in the Meridian!

Room Tip: Standard studio is perfect for young couples

We stayed at Meridian in September for 1 week, impressed with our one bedroom apartment, very clean and modern facilities. Ideal position for walking into town or marina, only 5 mins walk away. Recommend eating at the Italian restaurant (Bucci) in town for a nice dinner.

Only a few very minor points, shower was designed for people under 5ft. Pool area was small and shady which meant finding sun loungers in the sun was occassionaly impossible, although beach is within 5 mins walk as an alternative.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for a week and it was great. The apartment was bright and clean and had everything we needed. Handy having the kitchen so we could do our own meals when we felt like it. The Meridian is in a great spot, you can easily walk to the beach, the marina, and the main street. The lady on the front desk was nice, and made good recommendations for things to do. The pool was lovely and well set up to lie around and enjoy the sunshine!

Stayed here for 5 nights in a superior studio with a spa pool in the courtyard. The hotel is in a great location not far from either the beach, Macrossan Street and the Marina. The room was good, though you would struggle to do any self catering - get a 1 bed apartment if you want to do that. The luxury of having the spa pool was great for relaxing in at the end of the day. Even though our room and courtyard backed onto the main road, we did not have any issues with traffic noise. The pool area was really good and being adults only in the hotel it was quiet and not too busy, and I think next time we would get a room with a deck leading into the pool. The room wasn't serviced during our stay (only for stays of 6 days or more) but that wasn't a major issue for us. Staff were very helpful and made booking the various tours easy. Would stay here again when back in PD.
