Only stayed two nights but it was a great place. Handy to town, nice pool, great host, super informative for making plans for the day. Our room had everything we needed, the TV had about 3 channels, one of aussie rules rugby, one in Chinese? and some other one I cant remember, lucky you don't go there to watch tv ;p The outside area is a great one for hanging out and socializing, you will make friends here. Good value all the way.

This motel is quite close to the main street. It is very convenient for me.
All staffs are friendly. They helped me making friends like other travellers. It is very reasonable rate for travellers who want to save their lodging charge. I was able to do lots of stuffs and really enjoyed in this motel!

Amazing service. Jack and Janelle of The Traveller's Budget Motel have provided an excellent time away, very informative with regards to best prices, locating tours, where to sightsee. No need to eat out - the food is great and affordable at the hotel. Planning my third trip to Vanuatu - I'll be returning to the Traveller's Budget Motel! Rooms are very clean and safe, surrounded by a beautiful poolside.

Room Tip: Every room is great

One of the best motels we've ever stayed at. The place is immaculately clean, has a lovely swimming pool, a big table for meals and chatting, loungers by the pool and a well equipped kitchen. It's got everything you need and more including free WiFi.

The rooms are smallish but are very clean and well equipped (fan, air conditioning, kitchenette, shower). The pool is lovely and the big table and comfy chairs are ideal for lazing around, having a drink or bite to eat and sharing travel stories.

The breakfasts are incredible value and the omelette is the best I've had in years.

The vibe is brilliant. Jack and Janelle are the epitome of customer service. They have a wealth of local knowledge and give excellent advice on what to see and do and where to eat. Janelle is like having your own personal travekl agent. She truly saved the day for us by getting us on an overnight trip to Mt Yasur volcano (Tanna Island) which we had confirmation for, but Air Taxi lost the booking!

We'll be back as soon as we've saved up. Hurry up and book people. This place is BRILLIANT! Thanks Janelle and Jack :)

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the back of the property.

We have just returned from ten days at Travellers - which is so aptly named. My husband had a wonderful time practising his French, German, Italian and even met a local ( Iranian) who was a friend of Jack and Janelle and tried his Farsi. Meeting other travellers was such fun and they became like family. Most highly recommended are the wonderful friendly staff. Big John, the chef, was so patient when I was looking for a space to cook breakfast and he was busy cooking for many others. Little John would clear our plates even when it was our responsibility to clean up after ourselves as the kitchen served breakfasts but was also motel style if you wanted to cook your own. John's beef stroganoff was superb if its on offer for dinner accompanied by roast pumpkin, potato bake and fresh green beans - exceptional value. Miss P ( Pauline) and Agnes looked after us superbly and fetched clean towels as needed. Emily stepped in at night time when John was away. Melissa ? was sweetness herself. The motel is close to town - just a short walk. Book directly and Janelle and Jack will assist you. Wonderful time - thanks to all. Shirley and John

Room Tip: Some road noise early evening in Rm 10 but all rooms have advantages and disadvantages.

Great location, very friendly staff, very good meals, excellent help booking tours and transfers, good advice on exchange of money saving us nearly 7%, very nice courtyard area. Only disappointment was lack of TV in room.

I loved my 2 nights at the Travellers! Jack, Jenelle and all the staff really make u welcome and guests feel like an extended part of the family. Nothing is too much trouble and Jenelle is a great source of information and advice. The rooms are comfortable but u spend most of ur time in the communal area around the pool, hanging out with other guests. Noise and lack of privacy could b issues but as a solo traveller, I found Travellers to be the perfect place to stay. There is no breakfast included but I highly recommend the omlette or continental breakfast - both are great value!
I hope to come back and stay again soon!
