“Great Escape in the middle of town ”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

We needed an escape with peace and quiet but still near to restaurants etc. We booked into this property and where treated so well by the management. Our room was wonderful, clean and had everything you would ever need. Also it is situated right in the middle of town so close to everything you would ever need. Patrick could not do enough to help us have a terrific break. Will stay again.

Stayed May 2014, traveled as a couple

Very handy location to pretty much everything, it's right in the middle of town, no need for a car. Rooms are clean and tidy and have a huge balcony overlooking the pool or the street, nice for evening drinks. Booked 2 tours (Great Barrier Reef and Sky Train, Sky Rail return trip) thru the owners, who are very helpful and friendly. Got very good advise on options for tours as they had very good local knowledge. Good value for money, would stay again if returning to Port Douglas.

stayed for 3 nights for our honeymoon. Loved it. Close to the shops and marina. We had a room backing onto the main st and did not hear any noise coming from the street. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment. We definitely got our moneys worth. The spa was a bit outdated but still worked. The mother and son that own the place are lovely. Our bus was delayed a couple of times and they let us know straight away. We will definitely stay again

Room Tip: upgrade for that few extra dollars and get the kitchen and spa

As a regular visitor to Port Douglas since 2000, I have stayed in several different hotels and serviced apartments in the town. For my last few visits and the last one being in January 2014,I have been staying at The Newport which is located on the main street. It is close to all amenities, so there is no need to hire a car if are not planning on doing sight seeing. It has a great pool which I tend to use for 2 or 3 hours each day and the rooms are immaculately presented and very clean. Overall this property is excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Try the one bedroom apartments facing the main street, they are large and open plan

Nice place, clean, well equipped, no bugs. Nice pool with very clean barby. Only one slight downside is the balcony on the aprtments facing the road at pool level are kind of enclosed. Thats all. Good people and nice place would defo recommend.

Pleasantly surprised with this tropical oasis
Booked the superior 1 Bedroom apartment with 2 balconies which utilized both the morning and afternoon sun
Room was spacious and very clean
Highly recommend The Newport as it was centrally located to all amenities

I was only up in Port for 4 days this time and found this place online about a month before.

Spoke to Patrick all along who organised the studio room for me (which has a big spa in bathroom), and a massive balcony/outside area. It's perfect for 1-2 people for a few days, no prob as the outdoor area is huge.

The bed is very comfy, has a bar fridge, kettle etc etc, good air conditioner, and some toiletries to get you going. A TV of course, which I hardly used, but works well. The rooms are very clean also.

Right across is the Coles and everything you need in Port Douglas.

Patrick is full of info and stories, so if you're chatty you'll have fun. His mother is good value too!

I'll be back and thank you.

Yvonne
