Macrossan House Boutique Holiday apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 January 2014

We have stayed in Port Douglas on several occasions and on our most recent trip we decided to stay at this boutique accommodation ‘in town’ rather than out at one of the bigger resort places. What a great decision this was. Macrossan House is comprised of self-contained apartments so is a different style of accommodation but its proximity to all the restaurants and bars in town make it an absolute winner. Plus it does have a pool.

The husband and wife team that run Macrossan House are fantastic and they did all that they could to make our stay great. They are genuinely interested in looking after their guests.

Without doubt we will stay at Macrossan House next time we visit Port Douglas.

Management were very obliging and helpful organising airport transfers and day trips.

The apartment is central to Port Douglas with Coles next door for supplies and any number of tourist priced restaurants. Cooking was easy for 2 people with items supplied and a small hot plate. The apartment was exceptionally clean and quite. Airconds and fans. No free wifi. I took my own but optus wifi kept dropping out.

My only problem was with the pool, access & exit was via a ladder with only 2 rungs and then a drop into the water. This proved to be extremely difficult with mobility knee and back issues. Both my husband and myself had a problem with the pool entry & exit. If it was easier I would have gone to the pool for a swim more often.

If you want an affordable priced holiday in a clean apartment with restaurants,shopping marina and beach, and day trip pick ups in a central area, book here as you dont have to waste your holiday sitting in a shuttle bus and more $ going back and fowards to a resort.

If you are wanting a lazy holiday sitting around a nice pool area or easy pool access this may not suit.

We stayed for a week, and all up happy to have stayed at Macrossan House Boutique Apartments.

After a few holidays in Port Douglas in several places this time Macrossan House.
Ideal in the centre for shopping, going out snorkling and swimming. Everything under your hand.
And.... very quiet, the place to be

We recently spent 4 nights at Macrossan House. We have stayed here many times before and still rate "Mac House" as our favourite Port Douglas accommodation. Very centrally located, clean, quiet and very well run by Trev and Pip. Keep up the good work.

After our great escape from Cairns we drove to Port Douglas.This looked better. We had no idea about how long we would stay untill we came across Macrossan House.Trev and Pip showed us room 9. We were sold. Our own little piece of paradise in the middle of the main street.We stayed. Car safely stored under cover. We never saw it again for 3 days. Quiet, safe, clean with a balcony over looking the cleanest swimming pool you will ever find.We did everything on our list and a couple more thanks to the helpful booking service provided by Trev. We would recommend this accomodation to those looking for a relaxing way to enjoy the area.The reef trip booked by Trev was just the ticket.Thanks very much for everthing. Hope to see you again soon.

Room Tip: It is great to be within easy reach of shopping dining and entertainment. No car required from here.

We stayed 7 nights at Macrossan House. It was spotlessly clean, good size apartment and bathroom.
Great location right in the centre of town, with easy walk to everything we needed. The pool is heated and a good size for apartments.
Very helpful managers, always smiling.
We stayed on the top floor and although there is no view other than the pool area, it was pleasant sitting on the balcony for meals, and watching the birds and sky at dusk.
We will go back again. Judy White

Room Tip: I thin k the top floor is the best

The best things about this place is the management and the location. It is on the main street but set back for quiet next to coles, a bottle store and a pharmacy. The managers are friendly and go the extra mile to help, suggesting tours and restaurants etc. the unit has no view but has everything you need and is clean and modern. The bathroom is small but ok and has a good shower, we hate the trickling kind! All in all very comfortable. Great air con , a necessity here!

Room Tip: Has stairs up and down to most rooms and amenities, if you are elderly or disabled ask for ground fl...
