Recent guest reviews

This place was amazing. Stayed here from February 4th to February 12th, 2018. Rooms were wonderful, pool and hot tub were great, service was immaculate. You could not ask for a better place to stay while on vacation in Port Douglas.

This was our first stay that the Meridian, having stayed for many years at Hibiscus and on one trip at Cayman Villas (which I highly recommend). However, with no children on this trip we wanted to stay at a child free venue. The Meridian is a short walk to the beach, Macrossan Street and the Marina – so an ideal location. The room was on the top floor and was very clean and quiet. The lounge and bedroom had air conditioning and the room has all the usual cooking appliances, utensils and crockery. Our room came with a ten channel Foxtel subscription. The managers are very friendly and have lived in Port Douglas for 25 years so they know all the restaurants and attractions. We arrived just after the cyclone and heard many stories of how the managers helped guests reach their connecting flights as well as working hard to stop flooding in the carpark. Each floor has a washing machine and separate dryer which are free to use. You can get detergent from reception for $2. The pool is well maintained and there is a spa. The pool is a good length and meanders under a small bridge. The main thing you notice about a child free venue is how quiet the pool area is. So if you are looking to sit by a pool quietly then the Meridian is for you. Overall a great location, well maintained, friendly helpful staff and well priced.

The Meridian is a perfect location to the Main Street - only 2 min walk. Great pool & well fitted out rooms - best part...... no under 16 y.o. ‼️ So pool area quiet & relaxing 😎 Four Mile Beach only 2 mins away 👍

We stayed for 3 nights earlier this month. Lovely lady on reception with a great sense of humour. Large room, great pool. Port Douglas is paradise. We will definitely return to stay in this hotel, excellent location.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and the beginning on March and had an absolutely wonderful stay. When we arrived we were made to feel more than welcome and found the owners very friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely and clean and was very handy having a washing machine right outside out front door. Pool area was beautiful and clean. The hotel is right round the corner from 4 mile beach and the main shops and restaurants ! Free on-site parking and WiFi also. If we ever came back would be sure to stay here again. Many thanks!

We had the pleasure of staying at the Meridian 4 nights in January, 2018, and loved staying here. The room was large, with a kitchenette, and a balcony overlooking the pool. A washer/dryer was just outside the door. The location was in walking distance of the main street, shops, and the beach. What made this place special, however, was the wonderful desk agent, Amanda. She made reservations for our activities (Tony’s Tropical Daintree Tour and Wavelength) before we arrived, including shuttle reservations to/from the Cairns airport. She promptly and happily rescheduled one of our activities due to our flight delay. When we arrived without our luggage, she was helpful and sympathetic, willing to assist in any way. We would not hesitate to stay here again next time we are in the area.

We stayed here for a visit to the Barrier Reef tour and we were not disappointed. The journey from the airport is an hour or so, the reception was not manned when we arrived however that was not a problem as our taxi transfer had access to the key to our room when we arrived. The rooms were modern and clean with all amenities to a high standard. The pool area was quiet through the day so a few hours in the sun was not a problem. The owners were very friendly and helpful and made the stay a pleasant one. A short walk to the main area with bars, eateries and shops made for a pleasant evenings walk.

The Meridian is really well situated in Port Douglas, very convenient for the beach, shops, marina and restaurants. The apartments are small but well equipped, overlooking the welcoming pool. Amanda, the resident manager was extremely helpful, obliging and informative - a really great asset in helping with transfers, trips and recommendations.

We stayed at the Meridian Apartments in early February for 5 nights as part of our 3 week trip to Australia. We received an upgrade to a one bedroom apartment and also were given a complimentary bottle of champagne for my wife's birthday which had been left in the fridge. The apartment was beautifully clean and spacious and was ideally situated within easy walking distance of both the main High Street and Marina. The complex had a nice pool area with sun beds and a BBQ area. The reception were really friendly and offered a vast amount of leaflets on tours and attractions. We would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation and would love to stay here again in the future.

A delightful place with every amenity you could wish for. Our late arrival was not a problem, a key box at the door held our key and all the information we needed to settle in after a late fight, even a temporary WiFi code! We had been upgraded to a wonderful suite but the basic studio looked really good too. The pool area has loungers and a BBQ area. There’s even free laundry facilities. Receptionist so very helpful and knowledgable about what and where go go and will book tours which saves a lot of time and trouble. Would it hesitate to recommend a stay here anytime.
