“Clean, nice and central”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2013

Very nice clean rooms, pool is fairly small and closed in but spotlessly clean. The great rooms and huge beds make more than up for it, too. Great self catered place in an excellent location. Been there twice now and happy to stay there again.

We stumbled on Macrossan House apartments Nov 2012 when we decided at last minute to extend our stay In Port. The owner could not have been more helpful showing us around apartment when we were desperately looking for somewhere to stay at short notice. The apartments are situated on the main street in Port basically in the middle of all the restuarants and shops. Given the location we were pleasantly surprised at how quiet the apartments were, no noise from the street. Nice pool with barby available if you decide to do some cooking. The apartments are very comfortable and exceptionally clean. A great location at a great price. We will be using again next time in Port.

Room Tip: We had a room at back looking on to pool and found it really quiet..

This was my first time to Port Douglas and I was thrilled to have chosen the Macrossan House Apartments for my stay with Four Mile Beach at one end of the street and the marina on the other. It was a fantastic location being in the heart of the main street, but sufficiently situated back from the road so you weren't disturbed. All the amenities were close by with restaurants, bars, boutique shops and including a large supermarket just around the corner.

I had a ground floor apartment and loved my balcony. I also liked the apartment decor and it felt very homely. Lovely size rooms and it had everything you needed. I found I used the ceiling fans much more than the air con.

Concerning the wifi, I found it didn't bother me. I ate at one of the local restaurants on my first night, which had a generic password and I happen to log on whenever I walked by! Some of the bars also have wifi and would give you the password if you drank there.

Trev & Pip's prompt and informative advice on the local area was very much appreciated when I was planning my trip, and this continued during my stay. It makes such a difference to be greeted by friendly people especially when travelling alone, and they obviously love what they are doing. Thanks very much for making me feel welcome.

If I ever have the chance to come back to the area, I will definitely stay here again! I loved Port Douglas.

Room Tip: I had a ground floor apartment, with a quiet balcony, and the ground floor apartments had the choice...

I stayed at Macrossan House for 5 nights with my girlfriend in a ground floor 1-bedroom apartment. The accommodation is centrally located in the middle of Macrossan Street, very close to Coles. The location is excellent with the Marina and beach within easy walking distance. Trevor and Pip were very friendly and helpful, offering useful advice about tours and activities.

The apartment was very clean and well-kept. The place is a perfect base for those who want to explore Port Douglas and its surrounds. It may not be so suitable if you are looking to lounge by the pool.

Having holidayed in Port Douglas for the past 14 years Trev & Pip need to be congratulated.on the tireless effort to please every visitor and nothing is a bother for them. We have found this to be the best place to stay and will continue to stay there for many years to come
