Great spot !
Beautiful spot. Loved this hotel. Very peaceful, comfortable and great location to the Main Street in Port Douglas. Some lovely restaurants all within walking distance. And the pools are divine. We also used the on-site BBQ’s one day for lunch which were great. There’s an array of bbq tools and oils too so you just need to turn up with whatever you want to cook. Overall a beautiful place. Would happily stay again. In fact we plan to do exactly that.
