“A recommended accommodation”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Is a really nice place to stay but relatively more expensive for backpackers. Owners are nice couple from Aus. The swimming pool is fantastic. With free coffee and tea in the kitchen, your can make your own in your room. Fridge with mike and ice, sink, microwave inside the room which is very convenience. Definitely recommended if you want to treat yourself better than a backpacker:D

Myself, my mother and two friends spent 3 nights at Traveller's during our recent trip to Vanuatu. What a great place, what an amazing experience and such incredible help towards organizing our trip. Janelle and Jack were fantastic, generous and caring hosts, other fellow guests were fun to share adventures with, the rooms were spotless and the food was fresh and delicious. Thank you so so much; we will be back for sure, Bee, Carina, Diana and Mal

I stayed here for more than 2 weeks and it's a very comfortable place. Very clean, extremely well run and well managed. Jack and Janelle are great people, always up for a chat if that's what suits, otherwise they're perfectly happy to give you space if that's what you need. A friendly, low-key hotel. The kitchen facilities are a bonus. Thanks, Jack and Janelle! Cindy

Jack and Janelle have built a wonderful property, good amenities, value for vatu, close to town and a melting pot for interesting and authentic travellers. This only happens when you have engaging, open and honest hosts. Bravo Jack, Janelle and all your team ...

After my holiday in Vanuatu took an expected turn requiring significant medical treatment, the care and attention provided by Jack & Janelle was amazing. From the time that Jack opened up the room for me in the early hours of the morning, to when I left a few days later, they both went out of their way to ensure that I was okay, and getting the care required. If that wasn't enough, the brilliant quality of food that comes from the team in the kitchen is fantastic, and had me back on my feet in no time. Highly recommended!

My husband and I had one night here inbetween our domestic/international flights. We needed a place to stay and after seeing the great reviews booked here.

The staff were extremely friendly, professional and helpful. Breakfast was delicious (great omelettes!). The rooms were clean and well stocked but the walls/closeness of the rooms meant we could here a neighbours alarm go off the next morning. having said that We'd still recommend staying here for the price/service.

I just arrived home from my first visit to Vanuatu and I absolutely loved it! Traveller's motel was absolutely perfect for me. Affordable, clean, tidy, super friendly, a 10 minute walk to town. Jack and Janelle are awesome, the staff are super friendly. It was like staying with friends, but at the same time having all the independence in the world. I can highly recommend the banana smoothie for breakfast : )

I have every intention of going back to Vanuatu and I will definitely stay at Travellers again!
