Our 4 night stay at the Port Douglas Motel was wonderful! Lillian and Bernie really made our stay warm and welcoming, the room was cute and clean, and the location was perfect (5 min walk to the beach, 3 min walk to restaurants and shops). Sure, it's not a luxury hotel, but that's the beauty of it -- it really... More

My husband and I stayed at the Port Douglas Motel for five nights while visiting the area.

They were very friendly and willing to answer any questions we had about the... More

Hello Paul, Thank you for sharing your detailed review and for choosing Port Douglas Motel for your stay. We are very proud of our guestrooms.

We found the Port Douglas Motel to offer convenient and colourful motel rooms, with parking, close to the centre of Port Douglas and the beach. We parked right outside our room, which was nice and clean. It had a double bed, sofa, desk and chair, TV table, and some basic kitchen facilities. The bathroom seemed a bit dated but was... More
