We stayed overnight at the Lazy Lizard on Saturday 15th May, it was comfortable, clean and well presented. I would highly recommend it to my friends and family. Definitely worth coming back again and again!!

My husband and I were able to secure a room at the Lazy Lizard Hotel for 2 nights. Set in a relaxed atmosphere, the clean room at the back of the property had all we needed. The heated pool was a great way to finish our day.
Adrian guided on what was on in Port Douglas over the weekend, and offered tips for our onward journey north.
Overall a great budget accommodation stay in Port Douglas.

The tile floor was dirty, sent our feet black and we complained and said they would clean it but our feet went black again from the dirty floor. Am sure they did not clean it the first or second time.our car was covered with green ants from the plants in the parking bays.

Dear reader, We all love a story! Let me tell you our side of the story.
Mrs Plampin rang to make a booking for 3 people for 1 night. On check out the following morning, Mr Plampin came to reception to ask if they could stay for 1 more night. We jiggled bookings around so that they could stay in the same room for 1 more night at a heavily discounted rate.
Before leaving reception after booking 1 more night, Mr Plampin stated that his wife’s feet are all dirty from the dirty floor and the cups were dirty too. (We had both cleaned that room the morning before they checked in and we check everything! Even the cups and glasses). We went and mopped the floor again on the first day you were out Mr & Mrs Plampin, at your request. We clean the rooms ourselves, wash our mops in the washing machine daily and are proud to offer the cleanest accommodation. So, we are sure and can guarantee you that we cleaned the floor again, as requested.
The green ants, these are native to the area and are not harmful to people or cars. Pest control have been through and we can guarantee no green ants are visible but they will return. Glad we were able to assist you Mr & Mrs Plampin in removing them off your car by making use of our water and hose. (Hopefully no ants were harmed in the hosing down).
So reader, this is Jplampin’s first review ever on this platform and they chose to slam a property that is mostly receiving 5 bubble rated reviews. It just reflects on them.
What makes us laugh hysterically, is that you booked for 1 night Mr & Mrs Plampin, then decided to stay for another night and then rang on check out after the second night to stay for another night! You stayed for 3 consecutive nights after your first night - when you blamed the floor for your dirty feet and after you were invaded by the green ants! Maybe next time you are so disgruntled, don’t choose to extend your stay!
Have no words.
Regards
Aidan & Alex

Aidan and Alex have every aspect nice clean neat and tidy and well presented with a caring touch. Nice place to relax and out of the direct hustle and bustle of port douglas but only a few mins away. I will definitely look to book again whilst working up in the area, or even for a personal stay in the region!

Thank you so much Neilcun for choosing to stay with us and that you found the Lazy Lizard to be a great find! We live on site and do the majority of the cleaning ourselves, with some help from Kaye. Nothing gets past our attention to detail!
Looking forward to welcoming you back again, hopefully soon?
And we really appreciate you taking the time to post your review on here Neilcun. Thank you.

Fantastic little home away from home. We booked 4 rooms for our families. Aiden and Alex managed to put us all near each other. They did so much to help us during our stay. They really went out of their way to help us all. The rooms were clean and comfortable, shower was lovely....bath available too, which was great for the family who had a child with them. The little kitchenette was supplied with mini fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle and even a little filter coffee pot. We ate out at some of the amazing restaurants but we also shopped locally and prepared breakfasts and lunches in the units aaaaand had bbqs too. We will all be back one day. Thankyou guys xx

r0b597, thank you so so much for taking the time to post your wonderful 5 bubble rated review on here. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you all, some for the first time, and others as return guests.
We even battled through a blackout during one of your BBQ's! The little things in the Tropics!
Little Davey is awesome! He is such a fun little fellow and can hold a conversation as good, if not better, than most!
Here's looking forward to welcoming you all back again one day soon.
We really appreciate you joining the Trip Advisor community and posting on here for future guests who are looking to book somewhere.
Take care and see you all soon.
Kind regards
Aidan & Alex
