My Wife and I stayed at the Lazy Lizard for four nights during our month long trip to the east coast of Australia.

The hotel is great value and the owners Jim & Penny are fantastic hosts. They went out of their way to help us (helping to plan our trips, showed me how to snorkel in the pool and even called local restaurants to book us a table). The room was spacious and very clean. The pool is small yet perfectly adequate and clean; it was a lovely relaxing place to have a swim.

Location-wise it is a little way out of the centre of Port Douglas, but not a problem if you have a car or don't mind a 20-30 minute walk.

The only improvement areas we would suggest would be for hot plates/ a hob in the room and for the free wifi to be a little faster.

Overall we had a fantastic time in Port Douglas, loved staying in this hotel and would highly recommend.

Port Douglas is a tourist trap with prices to match but this motel offers extremely good value.
We had the Queen studio room and were impressed with how big, clean and well furnished the place was.
He manager was very helpful and friendly.
This motel is not your usual basic offering, is exceptionally comfortable and well located

The welcome I received from Penny, the owner of the Lazy Lizard really set the tone for the 5 nights of my stay. It is a delightful place to stay, the room is large, the kitchen area equipped with everything one could need and the bathroom likewise. Yes, it is a bit of a walk into the main area but there is a shuttle bus which stops just across the road when going into downtown Port Douglas and on the return journey the driver just stops wherever he is asked to stop....what more could one need?

Jim and Penny are very friendly managers and quite helpful. Location is close to Port Douglas and activities. A short drive by car or 20 or so minute walk to main town.

Best Western was very clean and spacious with outside facilities well taken care of including a barbecue and small pool. The rooms were comfortable with fridge and microwave but overall could use some updating. Continental Breakfast is brought to your room the night before so that you may eat on your own time schedule in the morning. Free internet was good with some slowness at times, but then Jim would reboot it and all was fine.

We are so glad that we chose The Lazy Lizard for our stay in Port Douglas. The room we had was quiet and very spacious with good facilities and it was spotless. We were given a continental breakfast on a tray each day which was plenty for the two of us. The grounds are beautifully kept and planted with interesting trees and shrubs. The motel is well away from the main road so we were not disturbed by traffic.

Penny and Jim are the best hosts anyone could wish for. We had recently had news of a personal family tragedy and they could not have been kinder or more understanding and helpful. They also gave the best advice on visiting the area and helped with the bookings too.

I would be very happy to recommend The Lazy Lizard to anyone visiting Port Douglas.
