Great location right in the heart of Macrossan St with everything close by - heaps of restaurants, supermarket, shopping etc - but really quiet. Walk to the beach or watch the boats come in. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Apartment was very spacious and even had 2 tvs - a blessing as it was AFL Grand Final time! -... More

We have just returned to NZ after spending 7 great nights. We had a 2 Bdrm, 2 bthrm apartment for 4 adults. We found the apartments to be comfortable, clean and quiet, in a very central location. They were also serviced in the middle of our stay which I thought was nice. We stayed on level 3 overlooking the pool... More

We stayed for 6 nights in Oct and were impressed with our one bedroom apartment - plenty of room for two adults. Patio area with louvres is great. Pool was lovely and great temperature.

Booked a 1 bedroom with pool view but was disappointed that had to stand and lean over to see pool. The pool was supposed to be heated but was cold and no one swam the 4 days we were there. Good central location but can be noisy when the drunks walk up the main st at closing time.

Booked a studio room only a week before for a great rate considering this was Port Douglas. Yes the room is small but its great for one or two nights. The hotel manager Patrick could not do enough to help and thats always a nice touch. Lots of stairs so if you have trouble with stairs probably look elsewhere. Walking... More

Stayed here for the second time. Just as good. A quiet place close to everything. Love having the two balconies and the day bed is great to catch the sun in the afternoon. The pool area is small but never crowded and the BBQ area excellent with utensils and cooking oils and sauces provided.

We had a wonderful 8 night stay in Port Douglas made all the better by the way we were looked after at Newport. Patrick went out of his way to assist us with our accommodation requirements which made the stay all the more enjoyable. Central location is a big positive.
