My sister in law and I spent a night here and loved the place. From checkin to checkout nothing was top much trouble. Touches like an esky of ice for the wine bottle in the pool area and provision of plastic glasses to use in the pool! Breakfast was supplied to our room and was a great option with cereal, yoghurt and toast. Rooms super clean and well appointed. Thanks so much Aiden and Alex for a wonderful stay with you!
My family of 4 just loved this place, I'd recommend it in a heartbeat.
To start, Aidan is stellar. The guy has the best recommendations and a great rapport with the tour companies themselves. When he set something up it all just worked out - from a Kurunda Tour to bike hires to getting in to see an emergency doctor. Really, he and Alex run a tight ship and access to them is worth the price of admission...
...I would definitely stay here again, especially with a family.
This motor Inn really does tick all the boxes.
Location - good - situated reasonable distance from Macrossan street - quiet and peaceful motor inn with definitely no road noise from main road.
Room - excellent - great size and plenty of room for luggage and space to move around or lounging on the lounge chair, or sitting out on front verandah.
Kitchen - everything you need - or if they haven't got in the room I am sure they will definitely help you with that (very accommodating hosts)
Pool - good size - with a great little BBQ area adjacent.
Free eskies to borrow - fantastic idea
Ice machine whenever you need it - another fantastic idea.
Very knowledgeable hosts with plenty of local knowledge for ideas for great sightseeing and ways to avoid crowds eg going up to Cap Trib first and then back through the sights of the Daintree thus avoiding following tour buses. Also gladly booking any tours you require at no extra charge.
Overall a really great place to stay and we would certainly recommend this Motor Inn to anyone who wishes to stay in Port Douglas.
