Reviewed June 24, 2013

Port Douglas Motel is ideal. Right in the heart of town, walking distance to everything. The owners, Susie and Leo, are both a great laugh and very helpful. They've done an excellent job with the refurbishment. Rooms are a really good size with everything you could need.

Can't fault it at all.

And, just to round off a perfect weekend, the Lions won too...

After over 8,000kms around Australia we arrived in Port Douglas looking for a place to stay that was reasonably priced... We stumbled on the newly refurbished Port Douglas Motel. We where made most welcome and I even got a cup of tea and a biscuit for Susie while I was catching up on emails outside reception on beautifully manicured lawns.. The room is virtually band new will all the the features you would expect these days... Big screen TV , air con etc..
I would highly recommend this spot only 5 mins from the shops..

This motel has just been completely refurbished and is cheap by Pt Douglas standards. It is 1 minutes walk away from the main drag and the owners were really friendly and helpful and full of good advice.

They go out of their way to help you and make you feel really welcome. !

i would stay there again because it is so close to everything and yet not noisy.

The beds are really great as they are new and the rooms are very roomy and you have facilities for preparing food if you so desire.

I t is in walking distance to Fourmile beach , has free wifi and a pool and BBQ area.
The parking is undercover.

We stayed here from 16th to 17th of April. Unfortunately just for one night, as we would have loved to stay much longer. On our search for a Motel we stopped here and met the new owner, who was so friendly and showed us around. He explained how they refurbished the last couple of months and we could see the great effort, as everything was so beautiful and cosy.
The rooms are all brandnew and absolutely clean. The motel is situated next to the main shopping area. It's not far from main beach or you can walk in a couple of minutes to the restaurants. A bakery is right around the corner and a supermarket is also not too far to walk. The owners are so helpful with giving recommendations for things to do. Thank you for welcoming us, we will come back!

What a lovely place to stay. The property is still undergoing some renovations by the looks but our room was beautiful and must have been totally refurbished going by previous comments?. Spotlessly clean with beautiful, tropical colours reflecting the wonderful location. Staff are very friendly and went out of their way to help with tour recommendations. We were even able to hire a car right there! Although a short stay, we were delighted with our last minute choice. Reasonably priced and fantastic location. If in Port Douglas we will stay again!

The Port Douglas Motel is an old motel that has been bought to re-furbish. It is cheap by Port Douglas standards. The motel is not far from Macrossan Street, which is the main strip, and is not far from Fourmile Beach. Compared to the cheap motels in Cairns it is pricey. Parking is very tight.
