Reviewed 29 December 2016

We stayed in a very spacious apartment-style room which was nice and self contained. Yes, there was no-one at reception and things were very slow, but welcome to Far North Queensland. Great location close to all the restaurants. Pool is small and not very nice.

The staff were friendly. Room was small but sufficient for overnight stay. We found the stairs tiring after quite a few trips, no elevators. The under cover parking was tight and had to walk up under cover driveway around to reception. Reception was also tricky to find on arrival.

We stay here as oftern as we can as the location is fantastic. Behind the Courthouse hotel, where all the action is on Macrossan Street. Right in the hub of Port Douglas. The 1 bedroom apartments are roomy and have decent balconies. Great value too.

Great apartment large, clean, well appointed rooms large balcony with bi-fold doors overlooking main street. Ideal location for everything you'd want to do. Didn't use pool..... Who needs a pool when you've got the Great Barrier Reef! Port Douglas has something for everyone of all ages and ability. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
