Lazy Lizard Motor Inn

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My husband and I stayed at Lazy Lizard 5th-12th November choosing the Tropical Package which included bed, continental breakfast, two tours (one to Daintree Rainforest and the other to Great Barrier reef) and transfers to and from Cairns airport. We found this the best value to incorporate all the things we wanted to do. The accommodation was very clean and functional and suited our needs. What made it an excellent choice was the hospitality of the hosts who couldn't do enough for us and booked another tour for us to Karunda via train and return on the skyrail. They even had very good recommendations of places to eat. All in all it was a great stay in Port Douglas.

The lazy lizard is great value for money, the rooms are clean the kitchenette is very functional with all the bits and pieces you may need. Security screens (important when traveling with a wild toddler) Free wifi great pool & spa also BBQ facilities and very kind approachable owners. Highly recommend.

Great place th stay if you want a self contained unit. The staff rare friendly and helpful and even rang us when we left something behind. It’s easy to walk, bike or drive into town, to the beach or to the Marina.

We had a great Appartement at lazy lizard, clean and big with opportunity to cook. The hosts are very friendly and helpful all the Time. So we could do the best Diving Trip in Great Barrier Reef. We will come back.

The rooms were very clean and tidy. It's a lovely setting the pool is beautiful. It's great for families, there's room for the kids to ride their bikes up and down the driveway and the gardens are really nice. A good walk in to town if you don't mind walking.

Rooms clean and comfortable. Excellent air con and good bathrooms. Very pleasant place to stay with good facilities and very hospitable and friendly hosts. Would stay again without hesitation. Port Douglas is lovely too.

I’ve just spent six nights here and didn’t want to leave! Very good value accommodation which is spacious and clean. Very comfortable bed. Air conditioning and ceiling fan. A relaxed environment. Great place if you want to be in a quieter (apart from the birdlife!) location, yet just a 20 minutes walk into Port Douglas or a five minutes drive. Bikes and helmets can be borrowed. Shuttle buses, from $3-$5 each way, run continuously around the area. Managers, Aidan and Alex are very welcoming. They have a genuine interest in their guests’ wellbeing and go the extra mile to help you create a memorable vacation. As they’ve been on nearly all the tours they sell, their knowledgable is invaluable, as well as offering route advice for self-drive guests. Highly recommended.

Close to Port Douglas restaurants and shops, but not easy walking distance. A car is needed to get around in most cases, but bikes are available for check-out. Aidan provided expert guidance on touring the Daintree area which maximized the enjoyment of our day. His helpful and insightful knowledge made a huge difference in the number of places and things we were able to see...and things we didn't want to encounter like crocodiles! The property and rooms are very clean and well maintained. The pool looked quite nice but we did not use it. Overall, the Lazy Lizard is a very nice place to stay. Just a couple of items of note: the pool spa was not heated (at least not when we stayed) and the coin-op laundry is a bit pricey ($5 a wash and $2 for 30 minutes in the dryer).

On arrival our host Aiden was polite, friendly and very helpful. The room was spacious and well appointed and had a lovely relaxing feel. I would definitely recommend the lazy lizard to anyone wanting either long or short term stays.

We were looking for a spot close to Daintree National park and diving out of Port Douglas. This quiet and very clean spot was perfect and Aiden & Alex were super helpful suggesting spots to see and eat. Loved it
