Where you pay Motel rate you actually get much more value. A very personal attention with help for airport transfers (Cairns) and local activities, a friendly staff, renovated and clean rooms with all necessary cooking equipment. The location is perfect within walking distance from 4 miles beach and restaurants. If you don't look for luxury accomodation, do not look further!

Centrally located within walking distance of all the shops, services and 4 Mile beach, this motel is a little gem. The room was large and clean and recently updated with nice engineered laminate floors (SO much better than carpet), retro decor, and a super comfy bed. Shower stall was large enough for 2. :-) Apartment-size fridge/freezer with toaster and kettle...

Love this motel! We stayed for 3 nights (3 people) and were allocated room 7 next to the communal kitchen and pool. So handy and the kitchen was spacious with dining tables and chairs next to the pool. It was so relaxed and different from having to dine in our room. The staff was friendly and made our stay very...

This motel is great. Reasonable rates, quality furnishings, and it is walking distance to basically everything in Port Douglas. We parked when we checked in and didn't move the car for two days. Perfect for access to the marina and all the snorkeling / dive boats.

Everything about this place is perfect and ideal. Port Douglas was just a pit stop while in Queensland and visiting the Reef, but this place was perfect even if you decide to stay multiple nights. Great location, walking distance to main centre of town for shops, restaurants and pubs. The room/apartment is beyond clean, well-thought decor, quiet. You can tell...
