Reviewed 25 November 2010

Met Aussie friends here for four nights to explore Port Douglas and surrounds (including Daintree area, Kuranda and the Great Barrier Reef. We checked in late at night but they were well-prepared and our unit was perfect, located on the 1st floor with the pool just outside our little deck. The owners and staff were extremely helpful in making sightseeing suggestions and handled all the bookings with ease. The location is just a short stroll from the main shopping area, teaming with good restaurants, and also just a quick walk to the marina.

Unit was nicely furnished with convenient laundry facilities, secure parking and a great pool that was open late. It turned out to be the perfect "launching point" for our area travels.

Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed at the Meridian for part of honeymoon in May 2010. We spent 10 nights there and loved it. We stayed in the top Honeymoon Suite and it was just what we were after. Loved the private spa, direct access to the pool, and being right down the end it was totally private. The room was clean and tidy and quite modern.
The grounds themselves were small, but the pool was lovely, and I cant tell you how wonderful it was to have no children on sight. No noise. Total peace & quiet. Perfect.
The hotel is centrally located to everything you need. One block from the main street with all the shopping you need, one block from the beach and only a couple of blocks from the Marina. No need for a car. The couple of times we did need a car (loaded up with groceries), we just caught a taxi from the main street and it was only a few dollars.
Our hosts were lovely and very helpful when it came to booking day trips.
Very reasonable prices for the area.
Very happy with our decision to stay at Meridian Port Douglas.

If you are looking to splurge, this is a good place to do so. This is a family owned hotel, located just a few blocks from the beach, and just a few block from the main street. Port Douglas is smaller than Cairns and is mostly used as a holiday getaway for Australians. The hotel offers different types of rooms:
- With Jacuzzy
- With a balcony
- With private pool access

We chose one of the Jacuzzy rooms, this place is worth the money. Our room was very clean and provided all the amenities we needed. Additionally, our unit had a washer and dryer that we shared with the unit next to us. This was a very handy surprise, it allowed us to do our laundry before heading back home!. The pool area included a BBQ grill and it was very easy to access. While doing our pre-trip research, we read some reviews that pointed out this place does not have daily cleaning service and pointed out as a negative. The hotel does have a cleaning service every three days, which in our personal opinion turned out to be enough.

As with almost every hotel in town this place had a tour desk and the managers are always ready to provide suggestions and make all the bookings for you. One thing we found very helpful was the ability to put everything (all the tours) on our hotel bill so at the end of the trip we only had to worry about settling one account.

Overall this hotel is pricey, but it is a very good option when visiting Port Douglas. Good romantic getaway.

Stayed for four nights in a one bedroom room on the ground floor for our honeymoon. Had originally booked Sea Temple, but cancelled as the £ is not that strong against the Aussie $ and it was going to be too expensive.

Chose the Meridian based on tripadvisor reports and werent disappointed. There was nothing particularly special about the place, but the staff were polite and efficient, room clean, location excellant and parking a breeze. It ticked all the boxed for us - the only things it lacked were daily room servicing (without paying extra), and the Wi-Fi at $40 for a week was quite high considering the cost we'd already paid for the room.

Would recomend to others.

We recently stayed at the Meridian and would have no hesitation in recommending it to future travellers. We booked a Superior one bedroom apartment and weren't disappointed. We had a private balcony with direct access to the swimming pool. Just perfect! The rooms are very clean and tidy, with a lovely decor. The apartments are very quiet although being a downstairs room you could hear scraping of chairs and heavy footed people in the rooms above.
The Meridian is in a perfect location, a very easy one block walk to the main street and a two block walk to the beach.
Just lovely.

Sue and John made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Their quiet professional manner was excellent. Room first class, especially the cleaniness great. Beautiful white towels, with extras provided . Beautiful view of the tropical gardens and l Lagoon pool from our room. Pool kept in superbl condition, ideal temperature and offering a range of options in the shade and sun during the day. As part of our packge we were given a complimentary sunset sailing cruise with champagne in hand. Peaceful, quiet, realaxing holiday was also one block from the main street and one and a half blocks from the beach. Couldn't ask for any more. Certainly a resort for couples or those without children. First class stay. Try it and see!!!!!!
