Traveller's Budget Motel
Ranked #11 of 47 Hotels in Port Vila
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We were introduced to Travellers by a couple that had stayed many times and we are very happy. Friendly, clean and comfortable. An oasis. Meals offered are delicious, staff are very friendly and the owners treat you as one of family and offer all the help and advice you could want.
Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper.

Travellers is a fantastic base in Port Vila. The staff and owners are fantastic! Janelle can book all of your tours and will recommend the best tour for you. Jack is super friendly with lots of practical advice.

We made a late booking and arrived without any luggage as our bags weren't put on the flight back from Tanna but Janelle and Jack were wonderful such hosts that we were able to relax and make the most of a bad situation. They were really helpful, always bright and chirpy, and you really felt like nothing was too much bother. The room was lovely and clean and the beds comfortable, the pool area was nice to relax in and there are nice restaurants within easy walking distance. There was a great breakfast menu; I just loved the fresh fruit salad with coconut yogurt, yum! Janelle has a fantastic collection of local carvings which added to the atmosphere. This is a very well run business and the only place in Vanuatu that I felt was really good value for the price. The moody 14 year old thought the room was too small but then he wasn't paying the bills, at least he got to watch the world cup final and connect to the world through the great WiFi connection.

Host hospitable and helpful. Kitchen facilities where you can make your meals or meals can be made for you. The feeling is like a cross between a backpackers and motel. But facilities are great, everything is clean and lovely swimming pool. Support other positive comments about the motel and owners.

Janelle and Jack and the Travellers Accom and staff are well described in recent reviews. I,without repeating all can only now serve here to endorse a hospitable, clean well organised accommodation in Port Vila. I travelled with my 17 y.o daughter for 10 days overall with island visits and must say Travellers served as a comfort to return inbetween island stays. Awesome opportunity is availed to cha and connect with the communal atmosphere at kitchen and/or dining hutch however if you are feeling like alone time, absolutely no pressure, grab a lounger by the pool with an ice cold local beer and chill or commune around the table and join in the exchange of travel tips and recent journeys being shared. Rooms are very clean and appointed well for a budget accommodation. Crisp sheets towels and provision with kitchenette should you want seclusion from others (why??) toaster, microwave and umbrella even!! Well thought out. Staff are incredibly warm welcoming and friendly with Pacific charm on offer. Thankyou To Mas Janelle, Jack and all Staff, you made for what became a home away from home, safe secure, clean rooms, a fantastic resource with offers to store our gear, book travel and onward accomm and recommendations……. wish you all the best.

We stayed here for a night after arriving at 2am from a flight from Melbourne. Even though it wasnt 24hr check in one of the owners still woke up at 3am to let us in and show us to our room. The room was fine , nice and clean , all we were after was a nice bed to sleep on which it delivered. We had breakfast there in the morning and it was simple but very good. We got chatting to another one of the owners at breakfast and he was very friendly and told us a bit about himself and Port Vila. Overall if you are looking for a relatively cheap and good stay in port vila I would recommend this place.

Room Tip: because the rooms wrap around the pool and common area in a U shape , when people are up for breakfa...

The hosts at the Traveller's Budget Motel were extremely hospitable and helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the location close enough for us to walk to restaurants and the waterfront. I would stay there again and recommend it to others.

Traveller's Budget Motel is Port Vila's best value for money accommodation.
