“Highlight of our North Queensland Holiday”
Reviewed June 6, 2011

We stayed here for five very enjoyable nights, the apartment was very clean and comfortable. Location excellent and a short walk to beach, Marina and most eateries.
Our hosts were very welcoming and most helpful with local knowledge and especially
with booking trips. Swimming pool and grounds are very nicely kept. Would recommend
the combined club for agood meal at a reasonable price, also the fish and chip shop just
across the street.
Would return to Le Cher again, could not find any faults during our stay here,
Thank you to our hosts Rae and Hubby.

Last year we stayed at Le Cher Du Monde for the first time, we loved it, the convenience, space and facilities. We returned this year, with high exceptations, and we weren't disappointed. Gordon & Rae looked after us as they did last year. Why stay at a hotel, when you have the space of a one bedroom apartment, right in the centre of Port Douglas (during Carnivale time). Highly recommended, still.

We were pleasantly surprised by the lovely accommodation and the central location within easy walking distance to all pubs, clubs and eateries around Port Douglas. The only downfall was that we stayed for 7 nights and had the same towels the entire time and to get a change we would have had to pay extra - you only get a change if you stay 8 days or more. Not ideal really - The spa is only a small one person corner unit - other than this we would recommend these apartments

Not sure why the guests did not get a change of towels,our policy is all stays of 7 days get a change of towels mid stay,8 days or more a full change of linen, more can be had at any time for a small charge, all units have a small 2 person corner spa in the ensuite

What a great 2 nights we just had staying hee for Carnivale We had room 8 with our own lovely private patio and direct pool access Rooms are comfy and spacious , everything is at your doorstep and is great value for money Will be back again to stay here The only issue we had was being evacuated to the main street when the fire alarms went off throughout the building but it was sorted out very promptly by the owners Highly recommended if you want a nice place to get away at Port

Loved this place! We got a warm welcome, a fab room overlooking the pool, at the back. Our apartment was spacious, clean and we have no complaints. Perfect location, private car park, nothing amiss. Would recommend this to all visiting Port Douglas but I won't tell you my room no - I might want to book it again myself!

Located half way along Port Douglas's main street this is an absolute gem. The couple running it were friendly and extremely helpful. The room was clean and spacious with a lovely balcony. Our room was at the back and extremely quiet; quite a surprise considering the prime central location.

My only negative would have to be that the office was not open outside normal hours. Most tours finish late in the afternoon and the office was always closed on our return. This, however, was only a minor inconvenience.

I'm hoping to return to Port Douglas before too long and will make sure that I won't be staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Just avoid rooms overlooking the main street.

We stayed here during the Easter break this year. The apartments are well located being right in the middle of Port Douglas's main street - Macrossan St. Our apartment was at the back of the block so had also side windows which opened onto tropical gardens. We left our car in the undercover parking lot at the base of the apartments and walked to all the fabulous restaurants and cafes that PD has to offer. One being, the Ironbark hotel, which has the best calamari salad I've ever tasted. The downside of these apartments are the stairs. There is no lift as I could tell, and we had to drag our suitcases up (and then back down) approximately 30 stairs as we were at the top of the two storey complex. We were not put off, however for less fit people this would be a huge struggle.
However, I must say, that we found the value for money with this accommodation was great. We would definitely consider staying there again.

Thank you for the reveiw,but we would like to point out that we have a side entrance to the units,which have a maximunm 22 steps,to the top 4 units and only 15 to the rest on the top level,using the same entrance there are ground floor units that have no steps at all, for the guests that prefer the upper levels,we are more than happy to assist with luggage if required
