Great helpful owners. Excellent home base for exploring Port Douglas and Mossman areas. The rooms are clean large and have great air conditioners. Definitely recommend to anyone wanting a good room / experience for a fair price.

Fantastic motel with spacious rooms. The owners were delightful and very helpful. There's also a BBQ that you can use to get in the real Aussie spirit. About a 20 minute walk from town, but as you're staying in a motel you probably have a car so not that far. Highly recommend this place.

Our stay was way too short! Penny and Jim are delightful hosts. They were always ready with the answers to all the questions about tours and activities. Spacious rooms with comfy beds and great ventilation equal comfortable evenings. When we return to Port Douglas we won't look elsewhere for accommodations!

Comfortable, well supplied unit with shaded carparking. Penny and Jim are a friendly helpful couple who go out of their way to ensure that you enjoy your stay with them and your visit to Port Douglas. There were no negatives staying here.

It is a clean very well run motel. Rooms are large and the beds were comfortable. Jim and Penny, the owners, arranged the tours to the Daintree and the Great Barrier Reef. The tour with Daintree wonder tours was excellent. Also the Quicksilver trip to the reef had some level of activity for the whole family. Jim answers emails promptly and everything from transport from cairns and the tours went off smoothly. I would highly recommend staying at the Lazy Lizard. Nice people

We confirm everything else others have already said and can highly recommend this motel. Jim and Penny are great hosts, very friendly and helpful, which completed the whole package and made our 7 night stay a very pleasant experience. Thanks Jim for all your time and advice on our tours, it was greatly appreciated. You will not be disappointed if you decide to stay here.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and were extremely satisfied with the hotel. Value for money, very nice clean room and staff were very helpful. Jim was helpful with directions and booking trips and Penny supplied a lovely tasty breakfast. Would recommend for anyone staying in Port Douglas and would have no hesitation staying there again
