My first choice in Port Douglas.
Best room, huge size. Bed really comfy with luxurious sheets. Aidan & Alex were wonderful hosts, young lass who came through to clean up was very sweet too. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Great little motel
This is a great little place just on the outskirts (3 min drive) of the main street in town. The staff was very friendly and our room was clean, comfy and in good repair. Every unit has its own little patio. All tile floors (typical for a beach community), sink, dishwasher and microwave. Laundry facilities on property. We were typically out and about during most of our trip, so we just needed clean, comfy accommodations and this place fit the bill. Would stay here again if in the area.

Good 6.0
If you are looking for a simple homely stay
All good except few things - White wash inside apartment needs to be done; did not have any daily housekeeping and no eating options nearby. Good things are - bed had a heating sheet. Kitchen is good. WiFi is good. Safe place with convenient parking.

Perfect stay in Port Douglas
Beautiful place to stay in Port Douglas. Spacious well equipped room, clean and comfortable. Beautiful garden and walking distance to Macrossan street and the beach. Easy access free parking. Pool and BBQ area looked nice but we didn't use it.

Excellent - well recommended
We are travelling around NSW and QLD and while driving up the Great Inland Way we researched motels at Port Douglas. The reviews of The Lazy Lizard and the reasonable rates persuaded us to book 9 nights for a bit of R&R and a base for day trips. I don't know what I can add to the preceding reviews except to say that Aiden and Alex made our stay so memorable! Aiden's recommendations for the trips, restaurants, takeaways, etc were spot on. Everything was perfect: comfortable bed, spotless linen, quiet aircon and ceiling fan, well equipped kitchen area, lovely heated pool and spa, laundry, ice machine, and the huge collection of DVDs for free loan. If we ever return to Port Douglas we would definitely stay at the Lazy Lizard again :-))
