This is a great place to stay if you are looking at a reasonably priced accommodation in Port Douglas. The hosts Jim and Penny are very friendly and try to attend to all your needs. They help to book all your tours in and around Port Douglas and also provide recommendations for the same. The room was simply furnished with an attached bathroom, but was very clean and very well maintained. There is complimentary wifi in the room and the common areas of the inn - we found the speeds to be pretty good throughout the stay. There wasn't a restriction on the number of instruments we could use to access the internet either. The inn also provides washing and drying facilities at a nominal charge.
The location of the inn is a bit far away from the heart of Port Douglas. This is a bit of an inconvenience if you want to step out for meals, but there are regular buses running around town that stop right outside the inn. It would cost you AUD 8 for a return trip to the center of town. The four mile beach is also a short walk from the inn and very easily accessible.
In summary, I would strongly recommend this place as an inexpensive means to stay at Port Douglas.
