The Port Douglas Motel was perfect for our stay. Bernie was very hospitable and helped us with what to do, and arranged transfers and car rentals and gave directions where ever we needed to go. The room was very nice and bright(definitely lived up to the description), seemed recently renovated and having the kitchenette was helpful for light breakfast instead of always going out. The main Road of Port Douglas is only a short walk one block up so great location. We would definitely stay again if back in Port Douglas.
Bernie and Lillian were absolutely delightful - always friendly and full of local insider knowledge. They definitely know the Port Douglas area very well. Lillian even helped us book our snorkel trip to the outer reef (which was the highlight of our month-long Australia trip) upon check in. Our room was newly renovated, bright and cheerful and extremely clean. We had lots of space for our big suitcases, plus a dining table, kitchenette and lounge area. Location was fantastic - 1 minute walk to the main street with all the restaurants. The only issue was that the wifi connection was a little unstable but otherwise we loved our stay in Port Douglas.
We loved our experience at the Port Douglas Motel! The room was fresh and clean, within walking distance from the main street (and down to the marina if you're thinking of catching a reef trip) as well as run by wonderful people. Bernie corresponded with us quickly and even gave us tips for activities in and around Port Douglas. Bernie's mom checked us in and was positively lovely! Perhaps the best part of our time spent there was relaxing in the salt water pool at dusk and watching the flying foxes come out to feed. We don't think you'll find a better deal in the area!
The Port Douglas Motel was in a good location being walking distance from Main Street, marina and beach. The room was very large with a ensuite bathroom, flatscreen tv, couch, kitchenette, table and queen bed. The customer service was excellent and we were able to extend our stay with out any hassle. I would stay here again.
First time in a "commercial" airbnb solution. We were able to book the room in very short notice (a day before) and reply from BERNIE arrived very quickly even on N'Y day (!!). Perfect location in Port Douglas, very close to main street where everything happens. Reception was excellent, BERNIE's mum was very friendly and nice to chat with.. wifi available. Room was perfectly clean and fit with everything you can ask for, we went for a dip in the warm sea and it was nice to get back and have a pool to relax in. A very tidy communal BBQ area was also available for all guests. Motel has recently received a full face lift, don't know how it was before but they are carrying out even more refurbishments... frankly couldn't ask for a better place. Only regret is that we only stayed 1 night, wish we had arrived earlier and stayed longer. Yes.. that nice. If we ever come back to port Douglas I will surely look for a place here! Loved it! Not sure if Motel have stars.. I'd definately give them a few :)
We were absolutely stunned by the welcoming spirit of Bernie and his family. We felt so comfortable in the Motel, the location is just perfect and the value for the money is probably the best you can get in Port Douglas. We are already thinking about coming back for a few days. Thanks for having us!!
We were really impressed with this motel! Bernie and his family were extremely friendly and helpful, and the room was really comfortable with lovely furniture. Thanks for the visit!

I am a happy go-lucky type of guy. My family owns the Port Douglas Motel and I am the onsite Manager. I'm kept pretty busy making sure that everything runs smoothly for our guests.
I am also a Dive Instructor so when I am not at the motel, I'm taking people diving on the Great Barrier Reef (hard life, I know).
Other interests of mine are spearfishing and hiking some of the gorgeous trails around Port Douglas!
