A great stay in Vanuatu. I love the look of the place - artsy, compact and Jack and Janelle - who run the place are very friendly and helpful! It's as if we're just crashing into your friends' home for a few days to travel around Vanuatu!

We stayed at the Traveller's Budget Motel for two nights at the end of our Honeymoon. We were impressed with the accommodation, location, owners, pool, coffee and breakfast :) It has a nice atmosphere, with friendly travellers a plenty and Jack and Janelle were most helpful. I would recommend staying here as it it close to town and the rooms are tidy and comfortable.

While the rooms at Travellers are fairly basic, the owners are lovely and help with your every need in order to make your trip as good as possible. Breakfast is a definite must- very good fruit salad.

This Motel is a lovely place to stay for a few days, meet other travelers and make plans to experience Vanuatu.
Jack and Janelle are a really nice couple, they run the Motel with joy and happiness sharing chats, stories and smiles with all the guests (ask Janelle for any tip and advise about where to go to enjoy Vanuatu)
The common space, the little swimmingpool and the kitchen are the perfect spot to meet and spend time with the other guests and have a couple of beers after a day exploring Vila, food is really good and affordable (breakfast is just great!)
Rooms are big enough and super clean, there's a dorm and different rooms and even if the dorm is not available and ur traveling alone, u can easily find the best option if ur ready to share a room with other guests.

Our family was transiting through Vila after two weeks of serving the people on Santo. The rooms are super clean and comfortable. A great rest place for rest and relaxation. Great little pool and awesome hosts, Jack and Jeanette are extremely helpful and pay attention to their guests! We had three rooms for the 6 of us and would Highly recommend making this place your hub of tranquility for your visit to Port Vila! Great, affordable food right on site!

The en suite rooms and pool make this a nice place for a Port Vila base, but the communal area and hosts made this a special place. As soon as we arrived, Jack the owner made us feel very welcome. Introducing us to other guests and offering drinks. Janelle his wife has a great knowledge of the islands and tours. The fact she has stayed on most islands and experienced most tours means she has first hand knowledge, rather than just handing out leaflets.
The communal tables were great for meeting up with and chatting to other guests, and made our stay feel more like a homestay than just a motel room.
Highly recommended!!
