Certificate of Excellence
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 our double rooms have cold remote controlled air-conditioning as well as ceiling fans, en-suite with shower, kitchenette, bar fridge, microwave and free +45 channel Sat 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.

This motel is OK but not as in the advertisements. If you are a budget minded traveller that needs to watch every $, it is OK but for $20 more per night there are much better places in Port Vila. The pros, the people working there are excellent. Short walk to town. The cons,

Hi thanks for your review. You booked a bed in our dorm. Its unfortunate for you that you were here with a group from the outer islands at the same time. There is no unofficial kava bar on site as you state. The rooms are serviced daily by staff not as you stated. Really its a waste of time even responding to your rubbish review.

We did stay here for one night between flights. The place did had a hostel like feeling. Our room had a double and single bed. There was a small kitchen block were we only used the kettle. The shower was ok. The furniture and equipment was not brand new but did work. During our

My partner and I stayed 3 nights and found the property clean, staff welcoming and rooms with everything you’d need. Close to the main port area at just a 10min walk & small shops nearby for supplies. We like to self-cater, so it suited us for making breakfast and dinners,

I am a frequent visitor to Port Vila, and have recently brought a couple groups of recent college graduates to Vanuatu. When in Port Vila, I always choose to stay at Travellers, as it offers as authentic of an experience as one can have when visiting Vanuatu. First, the rooms

Thank You Roy for such a great in depth review. Your last 2 groups have been a pleasure to have as guests at our Motel, and always brings lots of nice happy vibes to our motel when groups like yourselves stay. This year was a special year not only did we have your group from South Carolina. But also a group from The University of NSW who are also regulars. Followed by another group Joint Therapy Organisation from Perth in Australia. Again Roy thank you for such a great review and we look forward to meeting your family and another group in 2020. Thankyou Michael, Gabby, Agnes, Mimi and Tonny.

We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our stay in Port Vila. The owner and his daughter were helpful in giving us ferry times and other information needed for our first stay. The room was nice and had everything you need. I would say, you get what you pay for. It is

I personally prefer the walk along the water to town and if you want you can walk to the fruit & vege market which is on the other side of town. That walk takes me 20 minutes to get there but my husband says I walk fast. All rooms have both fans and air conditioning Yes, the charge is 1,000 vatu per person per transfer and we even wait up to greet you on arrival no matter what the time.
