The Newport on Macrossan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Just returned from a week in Port Douglas. Booked to stay at the Newport on Macrossan. Great place to stay, well managed and clean. Room was spacious and our front apartment had sun on the front balcony in the morning with afternoon sun on the large rear balcony. Beautiful mountain views and pool views from the one apartment was a plus. Pool was heated and a pleasure to swim in. The only down side was noise from the hotel across the road but that didn't worry me but may annoy light sleepers. Huge bed, handy kitchen, walking distance to everything and small enough to be intimate. Very quiet too.

Room Tip: Pick a back room if a little people noise worries you.

We absolutely loved The Newport. The location is perfect- everything within walking distance. The staff are so helpful and knowledgeable they were able to book our airport transfers and all our tours. The room is more then big enough with a beautiful outdoor seating area and full kitchen so we could cook breakfast for ourselves a few times. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Stayed here for 8 nights. We had booked a 1 bedroom apartment for 6 nights and a studio for the other two due to lack of availability, but the lovely owners were able to shift things around so we only had to stay in the studio for 1 night. Both the studio and 1 bedroom apartment made excellent use of space and were well equipped. The studio had the bonus of a spa in the bathroom but we had direct pool access from the 1 bedroom apartment. Free wifi was greatly appreciated too.

The location is perfect, right in the centre of Macrossan street opposite Coles and some fabulous restaurants. It's a very short leisurely stroll to 4 mile beach. Given the amount the other places closer to the beach were charging, we're glad we didn't waste our money there. This was perfectly suited to our needs and so well priced even during peak school holidays.

Patrick and Jenny are both so friendly and do what they can to assist you. They had even arranged our airport transfers so we didn't have to stress about a thing. When we come back to Port Douglas we'll definitely stay here.

Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: Maybe splurge a little and get the superior apartments. They have 2 balconies catching the morning a...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 7 nights in February 2012 and loved every minute.
Fantastic value, clean rooms and nicely decorated. The pool was fantastic in the hot weather and we were the only 2 using it the whole time we went! Perfect!
The bed was MASSIVE! MY favourite part of the trip haha!
Central location, right opposite restaurants, cafes and Coles supermarket.
Would highly recommend!

I stayed for the third time at Newport with three friends in a two bedroom apartment. Everyone loved the place. It's so close to everything and quiet. The pool and BBQ area is great. Patrick and his mother were extremely pleasant and very helpful again. We really appreciated being able to stay in our apartment until late in the afternoon when we were leaving. Will always return to stay here in Port Douglas.

Spent three great days at the Newport and would certainly return. Fantastically well situated in the heart of Macrossan Street. Four Mile beach one end, Marina the other and shops, galleries, cafes, bars and a supermarket all within walking distance. The staff were really helpful and friendly. We parked our car and didn't need to use it while we were there. We had a studio room which was small but had a terrace, spa bath and fridge. It was very clean and comfortable. The pool was lovely and sunny and we spent the end of the day there relaxing. There is also a BBQ nearby if you wanted to use it.
