Just spent 6 nights at the Lazy Lizard over Easter. The rooms were well equipped, exceptionally clean, comfortable and spacious. The outdoor seating area for each room was very inviting and quite private compared to other motels we’ve stayed in. The gardens were well maintained and the pool area was lovely. The laundry was great and the ice machine a fabulous bonus for our evening happy hour drinks!

Perfect in every way. Cleanliness was 100% and faultless. Room was large and was equipped with everything needed to make everything seemless. Beds were soooo comfortable. Being able to park outside the room made the day to day of coming and going so easy. Aiden was wonderful giving itinerary tips and advice whenever needed. Will definitely return. Recommend very highly!

The cancelled trip was simply lifted form August 2020 and placed for April 2021. The change was totally managed without any fuss whatsoever and we were allocated the same unit we had in 2015. This Motel is neat, clean and tidy, and the Operators Aidan and Alex, were most friendly, and could not do enough to ensure our visit to Port Douglas was most enjoyable. Sadly, due to the current restrictions due to the CV they were unable to provide the usual continental breakfast as previously, but it was simple enough for us to call at the local supermarket and stock up. The unit had sufficient utensils etc for us to prepare our own meals without any trouble.On departure we secured a number of their brochures to pass on to our friends if they intend visiting Port Douglas. We will stay there again if we are lucky enough to visit Port D in the future.

Thank you so much Glenn431 for choosing the Lazy Lizard and thank you for your fantastic 5 bubble rated review. We have some of the biggest rooms in town and solid brick walls, so no disturbance from neighbours! Being a 20 minute walk from the main street lends the motel to a very quiet atmosphere, away from the hustle and bustle. Thank you again Glenn431 for taking the time to post your review on here. Kind regards Aidan & Alex
