For a hotel to have no phone number is purely bad business. For the record, I never stayed here so don't know what their facilities are like. In their website it states they prefer email contact.... It should say it is ONLY email contact.! As a customer I couldn't discuss a booking with them... Are they scared to speak?!? I... More

Positives - Central, walking distance to pretty much everything you need. - Very clean. Negatives - The bathroom was so small you could hardly move, you needed to dry yourself in the shower itself. - There was nowhere to actully hang your towel up! and the rooms are only serviced once ever 4 days if you stay longer than that....

I had booked Eclipse a while back and hadn't checked all the details before arriving, but I was really pleasantly surprised by everything at Eclipse! The room was clean and modern, bed was comfortable, the in-room iPad a great bonus (didn't remember this and was so pleased to be able to check things online from the comfort of my own... More

We stayed here the night before the eclipse so it was perfect to walk to the beach, 3 mins away. The room was lovely. We were at the very front and I was concerned it would be noisy through the night. Fortunately this was not the case and we slept very well. Air conditioner worked well but we turned it... More

This hotel was very disappointing where to begin the bed ran around the room all night. The airconditioner took over an hour to cool the room down. And the final straw was there was complimentary tea and coffe and cups however there was no kettle to make a cuppa in the morning. As there are no staff on sight until... More

We needed a place to base ourselves for our last day of our holiday in Port Douglas as our flight home left Cairns just before midnight and we had to check out of our other motel at 10am. The Eclipse was perfect, being able to check in at 11am, spend time at the beach and have a shower afterwards. We... More

I could not find a working contact number for this hotel, which is rather unsettling considering I just spent $700 to secure a room and haven't received my "room access code" that I need to check in! How can I get it if you have no working phone number?! Disgusted!

“Our room was overlooking Macrossan Street, the main street. We had a good view and a good night's sleep. Not sure the other rooms have much of a 'view', only a car park at the back.”
