Excellent call for Port Vila. Jack, the owner, is extremely resourceful and helpful. You can sort out your whole Vanuatu trip from here, if you so wish. The place is lovely: a garden, a pool, a nice outdoor kitchen where delicious food is served. The whole staff is very friendly. My room was cozy, clean, had toiletries and all. Finally,... More

Traveller's is full of personality, both the motel itself, with it's colorful pool and garden area, and the owners, Jack and Janelle, with their boundless hospitality. It is the place for budget travelers in Port Villa. As a solo traveller, I really appreciated them introducing all of the guests to each other. Traveller's is the perfect launch pad for a... More

After so many great reviews already online, I just wanted to say thank you to Jack, the owner (Janelle was off the island at the time). He is a great resource of knowledge about the islands and this makes a big difference. I spent 4 nights at the motel and enjoyed the facility and staff. Don't make any tour plans... More

After having to leave another budget premises due to unsatisfactory conditions, and also after staying in all manner of accommodation on the Island (from luxury houses to any and all of most of the bigger resorts over the past 14 years), we stumbled across this little gem. Jack and Janelle were the perfect hosts, helpful in every way. We just... More

We stayed four nights and it was fantastic. Jack organised a great trip for us to Lelepa Island and at an extremely reasonable price. He also had great advice for where to eat, places to see and the like. Location was a short walk from town or a very quick bus.

we recently stayed here with a group of 6 adults and 8 children and were made to feel very welcome, especially the children. I would highly recommended this motel for travellers looking for a friendly, personal experience.

This is an excellent choice for the budget traveller (hint: check the name of the motel). You can book your own room or share a dorm. Jack, Janelle, Pauline and the other staff member E....(starts with E) were helpful - from giving directions to the supermarkets and bakery (within walking distance anywhere from 2 -15 min depending on whether you...

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
