Port Douglas Motel
Ranked #2 of 42 Hotels in Port Douglas
Reviewed July 5, 2014

This is not a 5 star hotel but had to rate it a 5 because it was more than expected for the price. Perfectly clean, wonderful Lillian to help you at the front desk, an absolutely perfect location for heading to the beach, the marina or Macrossan street. The bed was comfortable, good pillows and towels. The room was spacious and had a little kitchen with dishes and a kettle and toaster -- and microwave and fridge. Really there was nothing to complain about! Even has undercover parking for free! Can't go wrong with this place in PD.

We recently stayed for 5 nights and really enjoyed our stay and thought it represented great value for money. Our room was clean and very comfortable and the facilities were very good as was the very friendly service of the owners. The motel is within walking distance of most attractions.
We were very pleased with our decision and would stay again.

They were a bit cheeky and debited our credit card before we arrived, a most unusual practise in my experience.

Overall good value for the location.

We booked the Port Douglas Motel for a one night stay while in the area (main holiday base was cairns).

Although my decision was originaly based on price and location I was extremely and pleasantly surprised at the high level of decor , cleanliness and service.

The owner, Lilly, is extremely friendly and helpful and the motel is in a fabulous position just off the main drag and three mins from the beach.

Book and enjoy!

We recently stayed at this fantastic motel which is so close to everything. The rooms are cosy, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The guest's kitchen is a real plus and again this area is spotless. Our hosts could not do enough for us. Good old fashioned service with a smile. We will certainly stay there again on our next visit to Port Douglas. .

Port Douglas Motel is a great base for a visit to Port Douglas. Great open air kitchen/barbie/pool area and spacious rooms. The staff were very helpful with making reservations and giving local recommendations. A perfect place to unwind for those wanting to get away from the busyness of the city. The rooms also include a large flat screen TV, DVD player (with a free DVD library at reception) as well as a safe and kitchenette.

Room Tip: Perfect location!!!

Great location. Lovely and clean rooms. The owners were so friendly and welcoming. We would definitely stay again. They also have a 4 bedroom house next door with a pool which also looks great. Outdoor kitchen was handy as well
