Was made very welcome by staff (and the cutest 11 week old golden retreiver puppy cuddles). Our room was spotlessly clean, and beds made each day and fresh towels if requested. In a great location to be able to walk to everything in town and beach. Would highly recommend this Motel..

I am guilty of spending way too much time researching hotels trying to find that perfect balance of quality and good price, this hotel delivered. The location is fantastic, perfectly central to all of Port Douglas. 5 minute walk to the harbor, 1-5 minutes from all the restaurants, 3-5 minutes from the beach. The room was very nice (and I...

Very well located, close to the city center and to the harbor from where the cruises to the reef depart. Excellent accommodations, with nice size LED TV, powerful air conditioning, furnished kitchen area with new microwave, kettle and... More

The pool area has been recently refurbished and provides an excellent place for an evening BBQ, glass of wine and to meet and enjoy the company of other quests. The staff are very friendly and helpful and... More

My partner and I stayed for one night and where impressed by the friendly staff and walk everywhere location. The facilities are pretty basic but a good effort has been made to give the rooms a fresh and bright tropical feel.
