The room was quite spacious, clean and comfortable with suitable amenities for a weekend away. Easy walking distance to main street, weekend markets and shopping centre with easy access via rear entrance. Quiet area with easy access from main entrance road. Friendly and helpful office staff.

This motel is budget friendly though quite comfortable all the same. The location is super - quick walk to 4 Mile Beach, the main strip of Port Douglas and the marina. No need for a rental car unless you want to venture out of town. Which we did. We rented a car for one day from the motel - very... More

We (family 2+2) stayed for three nights during Spring Break 2016 and found the motel welcoming, colorful, clean and enjoyable with a great location close to both the beach and the main street. It is a nice family run place that takes very good care of the visitors. The rooms are lovely as is the common pool area. The service-minded... More

I arrived to Port Douglas around 8 in the morning and it wasn't time to check-in yet. I decided to drive up the coast to Cape Trib. It was super easy to make that decision because the Motel will rent cars out to people for a competitive price (hint: it's worth it if you want to drive around and have... More

This is a brilliant family run motel. Budget price without the budget feel. Very clean, large room with everything you need. For the price, it exceeded my expectations. The staff were wonderful and friendly and ensured my stay was pleasant. They have a nice little pool, but only a five minute walk to the beach anyway. Whenever I am back... More
