Located near the airport, we had a brief overnight stay between flights. Janelle was very friendly and helpful. The simple room was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. The property has a welcoming atmosphere. The communal outdoor kitchen/dining area is clean, tidy and homely. I think a young single female backpacker would feel very safe and welcome in this environment....

Vanuatu is a very long way from the UK, but the helpful reception from Agnes immediately made us feel at home. Jack and Janelle couldn't have been more accommodating when we needed to curtail our already short stay as the yacht we were joining needed to leave Port Vila in time to pickup other crew at Luganville. When next we...

I stayed here for a long weekend solo trip - I am so glad I picked this place. The owners and staff are fantastic - helpful and chatty and genuinely lovely people.

First off, Jack the owner and his staff are amazing. They were very accommodating and helped out with recommendations on things to do. I got all my tours and airport transfers booked by Jack himself. We sat around with other guests and locals for evening conversations and drinks like a group of friends. I will say they have the best...

Excellent call for Port Vila. Jack, the owner, is extremely resourceful and helpful. You can sort out your whole Vanuatu trip from here, if you so wish. The place is lovely: a garden, a pool, a nice outdoor kitchen where delicious food is served. The whole staff is very friendly. My room was cozy, clean, had toiletries and all. Finally,...

Traveller's is full of personality, both the motel itself, with it's colorful pool and garden area, and the owners, Jack and Janelle, with their boundless hospitality. It is the place for budget travelers in Port Villa. As a solo traveller, I really appreciated them introducing all of the guests to each other. Traveller's is the perfect launch pad for a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Traveller's Budget Motel is Port Vila's best value for money accommodation. Despite our budget category, the owner-managers have meticulously attended to every detail inside and out, to ensure your stay is relaxing and comfortable. The difference is apparent as soon as you step foot onto the property. The gardens are beautifully landscaped, rooms are tastefully decorated and well lit, showers are clean, sheets are crisp and rooms serviced daily. We believe everyone who visits Vanuatu is entitled to five-star hospitality. All our double rooms have cold remote controlled air-conditioning as well as ceiling fans, en-suite with shower, kitchenette, bar fridge, microwave and free +45 channel Sat TV. Each room has free data and wireless internet connection. An outside nakamal with full cooking facilities overlooks a sparkling blue 8.5 Metre pool. This is a relaxing place to sit and read. Located just 10 minutes walk from the shopping and restaurant precinct of Port Vila, the beautiful lagoons, beaches and attractions are either a short walk or drive away. ... more   less
