We had a fantastic stay at the Port Douglas Motel. The location is amazing, even better than some of the fancy resorts we saw in the area and it's sooo affordable! It's walking distance to all of the places that you need to go - it's a very short walk to both the main strip and the beach, as well...

Travelling around Cairns & the Far North, we are loving finding small, boutique motels such as this one. Welcoming, friendly & helpful staff, exceptional rooms, and a fantastic location. Value for $$!

We found this place a welcome surprise. The rooms were spacious, clean and bright with good kitchen facilities. Lillian, the hostess, was very helpful and friendly. The location is close to Macrossen Street within close proximity to excellent restaurants, the surf club, Four Mile beach and shops. Great value for money in an expensive tourist town.

Visited with a family of 5 and rented two rooms which turned out to be a good value. Location was great as it had proximity to the docks and the downtown area with restaurants and shops. Hotel manager was very helpful and welcoming.

Newly, fully renovated. Fantastic location in the town. Very good price and not paying as high as other accommodation in the town but very clean and fresh rooms still. Funky furniture and design. Heaps of space. Great staff. Loved it and would totally stay here again.

We loved this motel. There is a well organised kitchen at the pool side. There are also nice tables and chairs. The main street in Port Douglas is just around the corner, and there are hundreds of restaurants, but it's nice to cook, eat and drink whatever you want at the pool side. The room was clean and so relaxing....
