I cannot recommend this motel highly enough! It's staff are welcoming (thank you Marie and Lillian), the location ideal, 2 minutes to the beach and not much more to the centre of town. Port Douglas itself is a lovely place to visit and there's so much to do. If you're there on a Sunday make sure you check out the...

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the motel, fresh retro furnishing, very clean & brand new kitchenette equiped with all meal requirements. Fabulous service, warm & friendly in a professional manner. So close to the beach & main st, parked the car & walked everywhere. Excellently!

Perfectly located close to town and the beaches, you're not far from everything in Port Douglas. The motel rooms are clean and well furnished with aircon and ceiling fans. Bathrooms are a good size and have everything you need for your stay. A nice pool area with a good kitchen area and seating for a BBQ or cook something up....

The friendliest staff, clean, well appointed room in a great location. The price was very reasonable. We stayed overnight but noted the barbecue and pool facilities available. There was also a lovely smokers area. We'll stay again. Thanks

My husband and I spent 36 hours in Port Douglas back in March. Our main purpose was to take a Quicksilver cruise and snorkel the Reef. Upon check-in, our hostess was very friendly and extremely accommodating. She told us about all the amenities they offer, and gave us some suggestions about what to do and where to eat. Our only...

Very welcoming owners, I felt like in a small family. Lilian and Marie are such nice ladies. They try to get the most out of your stay even when it is just for a short time. Great tips for tours restaurants, bars, cafés... Very nice and clean rooms in retro style. Really enjoyed it and can recommend!

We stayed for 2 nights and the accomodation was great. Lillian was lovely greeting us and nothing was any trouble. The BBQ and outdoor kitchen facilities are brilliant. We had friends staying there with their 3 kids and they loved the pool area. Would definitely stay again.

I stayed 3 nights at the Port Douglas Motel by myself, and would come stay again with my family - 2 sets of rooms have interconnecting doors.
