An excellent property, very good value. Not luxurious but very nice and comfortable. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The location convenient. The bed had quality sheets and good pillows and having a kitchenette was very useful.

This place really is a little gem. Check in was quick and easy and we were able to park our car right outside our room. Our room (number 18) was very spacious with a double and single bed, sofa, table and chairs (inside and out) a desk with TV and large mirror, bathroom with shower, kitchen with kettle, microwave, sink and fridge. All rooms have air con and a patio. The hotel has a pool which was a lovely temperature and a Jacuzzi. Pool towels are provided at reception. Next to the pool is a BBQ area with condiments provided. We loved sitting out here in the evening. Push bikes are provided too which we used daily on the short ride into town. There is a cycle path most of the way and it is completely flat which makes for a truly enjoyable ride into town.
Port Douglas town in fabulous with restaurants, bars and shops. I only wish I could have stayed longer.

Right from the outset I knew this place was going to be great. Aiden one of the owner was very helpful and knowledgable about the local area.
The room was immaculate and clean, beds were comfortable and everything was in excellent working order.
In a four week trip on the east coast this was without doubt the jewel of our trip.

Unfortunately we were unable to meet Aiden and Alex, but Jenny took exceptional care of us. Her hospitality, directions, recommendations were very helpful and she made every effort to make our stay absolutely perfect. Large, clean, comfortable, quiet rooms with beautiful grounds located not far from town. We recommend the Lazy Lizard to anyone visiting Port Douglas.

Hi Vickie D,
Thank you so much for your 5 bubble review and so good to read that our Jenny took exceptional care of you. We knew she would as she is an amazing person and has the same high standards as ourselves. She did an exceptional job during our 3 week break away.
Hopefully we will get to meet you on your return to port in the future?
Thank you again and sorry we missed out on meeting you all.

Lazy Lizard gets great reviews - when you stay there you will know why. There is nothing that you can put your finger on, the staff are super helpful, the rooms clean, well furnished, small details like USB chargers by the bed. (I have stayed in 5 star hotels like the Hilton, and am amazed that they do not have a USB charger by the bed!)The pool is just right, look out for the Jacuzzi button, we had a late night dip in the aforementioned, warm water, a super moon, how good does life get. Free bike loans, located 5 minutes from town, just a very good place to stay - I would go again.

Hi Tim H,
Thank you so much for your comprehensive review and thank you for choosing to stay with us. We eventually sourced those lamps with the USB socket as there is nothing worse than not being able to recharge your phone by your bed. If you have to unplug your lamp to utilise that socket, then you have no light!
Looking forward to welcoming you back again in the not too distant future, hopefully?
Thank you once again.
Kind regards
Aidan & Alex
