We visited during the "off season" so we ended up being only one of three guest there. Thus the motor inn was super quiet and we loved having first crack at their convenient laundry facilities. Upon check in, one got a great vibe. Helpful folks at the reception desk, great suggestions of what to do in town, and maps to back it all up. We ended up doing the hike along the point and loved it and also they directed us to a lovely little brew house which made for a memorable evening. Rooms are large, clean and the kitchen was much bigger than I expected it to be. Nice spot for a decent price. Within walking distance to a yummy Chinese restaurant.

Thank you so much Janet T for taking the time to publish your 5 bubble review here on Tripadvisor. Our "Green Season" (Wet season) is an excellent time to visit as there are less people, blue skies and excellent reef conditions! And as you found, no queue for the washing machines. And easy to park in town and at the supermarket!
We run a tourist information desk as well as the motel and can offer suggestions and book tours. So glad that you managed the hike along the cliff top, the newest attraction here in Port. Well worth the 1.5km walk for beautiful views and a nice sea breeze.
Our rooms are some of the biggest in Port at 46 sq metres with a patio out the front of your room and parking beyond very tropical planting. Our kitchenettes are currently undergoing a refurbishment and should be completed soon.
Hopefully we will get to welcome you back again one day to explore more of this beautiful region.
Thank you once again for your review.
Kind regards
Aidan & Alex

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.
