“cool even in summer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

The welcome was just right after a long flight and the heat of summer. The room was way above my expectations, and the design of the room made it very special. Everyone was so welcoming and nothing too much trouble. I loved the secret pool on level 1, especially as I had direct access from my room. Food good too! A short 2 minute walk from the rest of Port douglas, and right on the beach.

Room Tip: First floor on the beach side but facing the pool have a wee balcony with direct access to the pool...

Our 4 night experience at this hotel/motel was outstanding. The room facing the ocean was perfect and well maintained, superb staff who were so accommodating and the breakfast was excellent including the best and most delicious coffee. It was ideally located away from the center of town yet very near so that you could walk 10 to 15 minutes to the nearby restaurants/stores. The staff's recommendations of nearby restaurants only enhanced our visit. The night before we left, they provided us with a delicious breakfast which we ate prior to our departure at 5 A.M. Listening to the sounds of the ocean from our patio was magical!

Room Tip: Choose a top floor facing the ocean

We recently returned from a six night stay at 'The Peninsula Boutique Hotel' and can't speak highly enough of our experience. From the first greeting (ice water and a cool face cloth) to the moment we left we were treated like special friends. Sheryn and Phil have thought of everything, Our lovely room overlooking the beautiful beach lacked nothing, clean, spacious and everything catered for right down to the 'fresh' milk in the refrigerator. I started to take note of the names of the staff to mention those who gave great service in the review but gave up because it wasn't just one or two, everyone deserved a mention for their friendliness and attentive service. Breakfast by the pool each morning with a choice of fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurt etc.as well as a full cooked breakfast to choose from - just great. We dined every night in the Hi Tide restaurant - doesn't get any better - sitting on the deck overlooking the beautiful 4 Mile Beach enjoying fantastic food. All we can say is it would be hard to find a better place to stay in Port Douglas, The accommodation, amenities, views, food, serenity all AAAAA+++++. We wanted to have a relaxing few days before the 'Christmas Çraziness' started and this was the perfect place to do that thanks to Sheryn, Phil and their terrific staff.

Room Tip: Our suite # was 27, fabulous view overlooking the beach.

The Peninsula came highly recommended,and lived up to its reputation.
Attentive staff in a low key manner.
Nice rooms and pool area.
Located close to a fantastic beach and only a short walk into town.
Port Douglas is a great location for exploring the Great Barrier Reef.(QUICKSILVER -5****)
Thoroughly recommend the evening cruise on Lady Douglas for some crocodile spotting!!!

Room Tip: Ocean view room!

We stayed here in November for 5 nights. The service is outstanding. They would do anything for you. The rooms are beautiful as well as the view. There is a serenity about the room. The breakfast buffet is served around the pool area and is a delightful place to sit. The pool has so many sensory qualities to it that it is a treat in itself. The location is on the beach and very close (1\2 block ) to town (shops and restaurants) but there is no nuisance noise. Their restaurant looks out at the beach and has great food. Treat yourself and stay here.

We stayed for 5 nights during early November at the Peninsula. It was the perfect place to start our trip to Australia. The welcome from Sherryn, Peter and their staff was exceptional. Our flight meant we arrived early in the morning at the Peninsula and even this didn't pose a problem. We were greeted warmly by Sherryn and advised that the housekeepers would clean our room first and it would be available within a few hours. It was and nothing was ever too much trouble. We had a sea facing room on the 1st floor, spacious, spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Breakfast by the pool each morning had plentiful amounts of fresh fruit, cereals, yogurts and cooked food - all replenished quickly. It was a joy to stay at such a lovely place with exceptional service in a great location - in short if you go to Port Douglas this is definitely the place to stay!

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms are lovely

My husband and I stayed at the Peninsula Hotel during our visit to the Cairns area. It was a wonderful experience. The staff is the most friendly and helpful we have ever encountered. There wasn't any question or request that they did not handle with ease and courtesy. The hotel itself was outstanding. The cleaniness was excellent and the rooms were very comfortable. One of the things that put them over the top for us was washers and dryer, at no charge. We had been on the road for about 10 days when we stayed there and we were in definite need of doing some laundry. The Peninsula even took care of that for us by providing the machines we needed. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms that face the ocean are wonderful for sleeping. The sound of the ocean puts you to sleep.
