Our stay at the Lazy Lizard Motor Inn in Port Douglas was a fantastic experience. Owner was friendly and extremely helpful, giving tips on travelling to the Daintree the next day. Room was very spacious, with a kitchenette, lounge and dining area as well. There was undercover parking for our car, which was great as it was raining when we arrived. Room was quite even though it was just off the main road into town. We would recommend this motor inn to anyone going to Port Douglas.

Thank you so much 750brad and Erin for posting your 5 bubble rated review on here. We really appreciate you taking the time to do this. So good to read that you appreciated the very good quality, unlimited high speed wifi that is available throughout the motel for free. We are very fortunate to have the NBN, even though we are so remote. No need to pop to reception or by the pool, it is available in your room also! Hopefully we will get to welcome you both back again one day? Thank you again for posting your wonderful review here for future travellers. Kind regards Aidan & Alex

For the price, we expected the standard slightly tired, mostly clean facility. What a great surprise! The room was super-comfortable, meticulously clean, so well appointed and the pool/BBQ area was great, also very clean and organised. The love the owners feel for the premises is very apparent. Highly recommended.

Spotlessly clean, spacious and good value combined with outstanding hospitality by Aidan, the Lazy Lizard is hard to go past in Pt Douglas. We were made very welcome here with the added bonus of a couple of tawny frog mouths nesting near the car park. Do yourself a favor and give this lovely place a go.

The Lazy Lizard Motel is a fabulous accommodation. The rooms are well equipped. The kitchenette has an electric getting pan that you can cook anything in. We do most of our own cooking and had no problem in this unit. The rooms are absolutely spotless, very comfortable and quiet. We used the pool almost everyday. Alex and Aiden are the best hosts and Aiden is a wealth of knowledge if looking for things to do. We loved it so much we kept extending our stay. It felt like home after traveling for almost a year. They probably thought they would never get rid of us. Thanks guys!!
