“Great apartment accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of January as part of a trip round Australia. This was the most reasonable place we stayed cost wise and couldn't fault anything. Friendly and welcoming reception staff, rooms exceptionally clean, modern and spacious with all the things you need and beyond inc. washing machines and a massive state of the art samsung tv. It was also in a great location, off the Main Street area of Port Douglas so a little quieter but still only a 2 min walk away from shops, restaurants and beach. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Port Douglas.

We randomly decided to go on holidays to PD, we searched Trip Advisor for our accommodation before booking it. The Meridan had good reviews and seemed clean from the photos. The room was clean and moderate size with all kitchen amenities. If we stayed at the Meridan again I would request to not stay in room 7A as it was right next to the entrance and very loud, cleaner would vacuum the main foyer area at 8am which is to early when your trying to sleep in and relax and you could hear people moving around upstairs very frustrating in the early morning. The room backs right onto the Main Street and you can hear the traffic and people outside. The apartments are marketed as a couples retreat I was disappointed to discover that the bed was 2 single beds pushed together and not a standard king or queen this is very uncomfortable and it would not be appropriate for two single beds to be in the room, this should defiantly be changed. The pool area was clean and private and it was fantastic that there was no kids at the property. The staff were friendly and helpful and left you alone. I would stay here again as long as we were in a different room. It was very reasonably priced and in a fabulous location close to Main Street PD, 2 min walk and short walk to beach, 2 min walk. Overall we were happy with the accommodation.

Spent 6 nights here in December on a trip to Port Douglas for my 50th birthday. We had a Superior Studio with pool access - I highly recommend having the pool access, it was brilliant to be able to go straight in and out of the pool from our room. The studios are quite small but the kitchenette facilities were more than adequate for our needs for breakfast and snacks. One of the main reasons for choosing the Meridian is its superb location. A short stroll to Four Mile Beach, and an easy walk to all the restaurants and shops in Macrossan Street, to Anzac Park for the Sunday market, and to the marina. If you are not venturing out of Port itself you really don't need a car, and there are bicycle hire shops in Macrossan St. The other main drawcard of this place is the adults only policy. In Christmas school holidays it was bliss not to have the pool full of screaming kids, - in fact the pool was often empty and always quiet and tranquil. Bathroom toiletries were good quality and a bonus was a real hairdryer in the cupboard - not one of the usual hotel hairdryers attached to the wall which are always useless! The bed was comfortable and my only complaint would be the poor quality pillows. The studio was very clean and nicely appointed, and even though we stayed 6 nights and not "7 or longer" we still received a service midway. A lovely property where I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Highly recommend the ground floor pool access rooms. We had a studio (4B), but if you are staying fo...

We had a great stay in the ultra modern and chic room. We were upgraded from a studio to a one bedroom apartment. The place was spacious and had just been renovated.

We had a jacuzzi on the verandah. The staff were friendly and helpful. The pool area is great and was nice and quiet while we were there. We were also able to have a bbq the one evening by the pool.

The Meridian was close to town and the beaches. It is serviced once a week. There is no free wifi which is a pity.

The accommodation is self catering apartments with everything you need to cater for your self. The apartments are smart and well maintained with air conditioning. There are also washing machines and dryers. Each apartment has a balcony overlooking the very nice pool area that also has a communal BBQ. Our balcony was large and had a large table and 4 chairs so we could eat outside. The rooms are not serviced daily but if you stay for 7 days there is mid term service. There is also secure under ground parking. The accommodation is also only a short walk from the town centre and beach. Overall it we had a very enjoyable stay in cracking accommodation.

We stayed here for 6 very relaxing nights. We even got upgraded on arrival and were allowed a very early check in! The location is fantastic with 4 mile beach only 200 metres away and you are a very short walk into town. The room was bright, modern and clean and we even had pool access (which is a great size and is very quiet) from our apartment.
The staff were very helpful, friendly and went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay and gave great info on the many activities you can do whilst you are in Port Douglas.
Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to friends and family.

Thank you for the great stay John, Sue and all the team!
