“A little slice of heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

This motel is run by an awesome couple (Jack & Janelle) who make you feel very welcome from first greeting. This motel has all the comforts of home; nice home cooked meals, excellent room service, high standard of cleanliness, and even a wee chat anytime of the day or night. An inviting central pool that greets you on arrival. They have fantastic staff working for them and the cook presents a breakfast fit for a king. They even have someone polishing the gutters...that blew me away. This place is big competition for the big resorts around!

Room Tip: All rooms face the pool which would be very inviting in hot weather conditions. Fantastic layout

Is a really nice place to stay but relatively more expensive for backpackers. Owners are nice couple from Aus. The swimming pool is fantastic. With free coffee and tea in the kitchen, your can make your own in your room. Fridge with mike and ice, sink, microwave inside the room which is very convenience. Definitely recommended if you want to treat yourself better than a backpacker:D

Myself, my mother and two friends spent 3 nights at Traveller's during our recent trip to Vanuatu. What a great place, what an amazing experience and such incredible help towards organizing our trip. Janelle and Jack were fantastic, generous and caring hosts, other fellow guests were fun to share adventures with, the rooms were spotless and the food was fresh and delicious. Thank you so so much; we will be back for sure, Bee, Carina, Diana and Mal

I stayed here for more than 2 weeks and it's a very comfortable place. Very clean, extremely well run and well managed. Jack and Janelle are great people, always up for a chat if that's what suits, otherwise they're perfectly happy to give you space if that's what you need. A friendly, low-key hotel. The kitchen facilities are a bonus. Thanks, Jack and Janelle! Cindy

Jack and Janelle have built a wonderful property, good amenities, value for vatu, close to town and a melting pot for interesting and authentic travellers. This only happens when you have engaging, open and honest hosts. Bravo Jack, Janelle and all your team ...

After my holiday in Vanuatu took an expected turn requiring significant medical treatment, the care and attention provided by Jack & Janelle was amazing. From the time that Jack opened up the room for me in the early hours of the morning, to when I left a few days later, they both went out of their way to ensure that I was okay, and getting the care required. If that wasn't enough, the brilliant quality of food that comes from the team in the kitchen is fantastic, and had me back on my feet in no time. Highly recommended!

Traveller's Budget Motel is Port Vila's best value for money accommodation.
