Great Barrier Reef calling you? Stay here. Port Douglas, charming... Meals at the hotel are available, the view is of the water... Beach across the street. Staff is ready, willing, available. Able? Not so much. Thoughtful? Yes. Effective? No. Lots of reasons and excuses. Would I stay here again? Maybe....

Perfect location!!! Right on the beach and a block from Main St. My wife and I slept better in the hotel bed then our own! The only down side was the staff they forgot to schedule pick up from the airport and their were one or two airheads on the staff. But if I were to go back to Port Douglas there's no way I'm not staying @ the Peninsula Boutique Hotel it's a little slice of heaven.

Great location. Walking distance to shopping, restaurants, 4-mile beach, and marina. Although having a kitchen was nice, the wood slat bathroom door did not provide any sound privacy. All in all a good spot if you can get a good price.

Lovely hotel over looking the beach. Staff were always very helpful and pleasant. Great pool for getting out of the heat, and a lot of the time we had the pool and pool area to ourselves.

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel and would definitely go back. It had everything we were looking for including a great location near the beach and town, a small kitchen, a nice tub in the room, and a huge balcony overlooking the beach. We could hear and see the ocean.

The location was great being right in the center of town and across the road from the beach. Going to sleep and waking up with the sound of the ocean was so nice. The hotel itself was fine but way too expensive for what you got. We stayed for 7 nights and payed $350 per night! That's more than I pay per night for the hotels in Times Square New York! Very hard to justify that kind of price and expected a lot more for that kind of money. I would not stay there again for that price.

We had a fabulous stay. You cannot have a better base from which to explore the area and the quality of accommodation was excellent - rooms were clean and comfortable, hotel service was friendly and helpful and the location within walking distance to Port Douglas main street and across the road from the beach. Breakfast was excellent - although for a hotel of this calibre something larger than a 2 slice toaster might be a worthwhile investment to minimise guest waiting time. The only fault was the hit and miss internet access during our stay but otherwise second to none. If we ever come back up this way we will definitely be staying here, no doubt about it.

If you're looking for an opulent 5 star hotel this is not it - but if you're looking for a very comfortable boutique hotel with just the best service then choose the Peninsula. It's not very large - more intimate really, it's very friendly and welcoming, and it makes the very best of its location - most rooms (including our coral suite) look out to the beach and the sea - there is a line of trees but you still see and hear the ocean. Most people seemed to be on B&B rates, and one area the hotel could improve is the breakfasts - most mornings the eggs were either underdone or bullet hard. However, this was one minor problem in an otherwise great stay. The owners and staff were so helpful - advising on the best tours and even running us across to the marina one day when it was raining hard. They knew about all the tour discounts too and made sure we got them. The hotel has a good cafe known by locals for its good coffee, and the cocktails were excellent too. The location isn't just right by the beach, it's at one end if the main street in town so it's also close to good shops and restaurants. If we can get back to Port Douglas another stay at the Peninsula will be one of the main attractions.

Got picked up from Cairnes airport, so that is a good way to start. Great location with a walk across the quiet road to the beach. The pool at the hotel is great too. We had a lovely sea view from our room/balcony but it doesn't get the afternoon sun, whereas the rooms over the pool do, so depends what you want. Close to the shops etc and kitchen facilities in the room were good. Although the room rate is high, that is the going rate - and we would probably stay there again. We stayed in July, we have heard since that September is the best weather (not too hot or windy)

Hotel is in a superb location, directly opposite beach. We would certainly stay there again but there were a few minor hiccups which were annoying. When we arrived the fridge had been incorrectly turned off and for the first few days the wifi did not work in the room( some adjustment had to be made to the connection). During our stay the lock on our door decided not to lock any more and it took 36hrs to get that fixed.

We wish our stay were longer. The location of the hotel and the service can not be faulted. The room was clean and comfortable and well layed out with it's own small deck. The cooking facilities were completely appropriate for the room, and the furnishing is nice. We cannot find a negative that should affect any decision to stay.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days stay at the Peninsula Boutique Hotel. Service was prompt, efficient and combined with smiles and great attitude. Early each morning a typed paper full of various activity suggestions for the day was pushed under our door. Organising taxis, tours, etc was no trouble. We were very impressed. The Hotel location is perfect with 4 Mile Beach just across the road and Port Douglas Village only a hundred meters away. We hope to repeat our visit to the Peninsula Hotel again soon.

I will preface this by saying the weather wasn't great, and this may have influenced my review. The hotel is in a great spot, just across a boulevard from the beach, and the staff were attentive and happy. The pool was lovely, and sheltered from the howling onshore winds, so that was great, and breakfast was adequate. The room was tired, a broken window and missing fan switch seem minor, but it is an expensive place, and I was surprised by these things. It just shows it's age, not enough light, too many dark wood panels, and uncomfortable chairs that you don't want to sit in. Overall, a bit disappointing, but perhaps if the sun had been shining it would not have mattered!

Lovely small hotel, very personal and accommodating staff. Beautiful pool area and foliage lush and colourful. Everything was great. In house food was delicious and so reasonably priced. The rooms are relatively expensive but worth it. We had a lovely room overlooking the water with a great balcony. Easy access to washing machines, dryer, towels just make life easy. Only thought was that the mattresses might need a change as getting a little uncomfortable. We would love to return as we felt it was a great atmosphere, very relaxing.

2014年の年末からの宿泊しました。ホテルはこじんまりとしたフレンドリーな従業員がおり印象はいいですね。道路を挟んでビーチですので、いつでも気が向いたときに行けるのは便利です。部屋はキッチンが付いていますのでちょっとした料理も出来るでしょう。ランドリーも共同で使用出来き便利です。ただ年末だったせいかホテルの格や設備に対して料金が少し高いかなと思いました。物販店が並ぶメインストリートにも近いですので立地面ではお勧めします。

Dejligt beliggende lige ved stranden og meget roligt område. Centralt for shops og restauranter. Hotellet mangler lige det sidste med rengøring, det samme skidt lå under morgenbordet alle fem dage vi boede der. Morgenmaden kunne være mere varieret og mangfoldig for et 4-stjernet hotel.

We had planned to stay three nights and enjoyed the area so much we decided to stay one further night. The location is marvelous with 2 minutes to the beach and 5 minutes to the main strip. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff very helpful (credit to Elena, who was great). Breakfast and snacks during the day were high quality. The only downside was the poor internet connection in the bedrooms.

We arrived late. We were welcomed with a smile. The staff asked the kitchen to stay open. He took us to our room and pointed out various amenities along the way. Pool, Hot Tub, washer and dryer with detergent at no charge, library, roll bar, etc. We had a very nice room over looking the pool. Free internet facility wide. After showing us around the room, we hurried down to eat as we did not want the kitchen staff to be upset. They were not upset and treated us as if it were the beginning of the day. The next morning we had a hot breakfast which was included. After breakfast we strolled a short distance to the beach. Great location to surrounding shopping, restaurants and entertainment. The rooms were very clean and we were more than pleased with our entire stay. We hope to return to that hotel and spend more time there.

From them inure we walked into the reception we loved this hotel. Modern, trendy decor. Fantastic suite with balcony and view straight across the beach. Restaurant very good. Highly recommend the fresh prawns with homemade cocktail sauce . Lovey adult place to relax. Not many loungers, but we always found seats. Good shady areas. Lovely warm swimming pool with their own waterfall. Would go back again

I stayed at the Peninsula Boutique hotel on recommendation from Trailfinders as I was a female travelling alone. Everything about this hotel exceeded my expectations from the friendly staff to the location and the facilities on offer to the little touches that show as a guest you matter. Everyone was helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble, a particular thank you to Jeremy for sorting out a fantastic last minute day on the reef with Calypso, absolutely perfect! Would highly recommend to family and friends and I will also feedback to Trailfinders, thanks again

"Service and standards you only hope to find"
03/18/15 Mel G London, United Kingdom
The Peninsula is a very stylish hotel, situated in an idyllic position 50yards from 4 mile beach and within a couple of minutes walk from the varied restaurants of Port Douglas centre. We stayed for 4 nights till 11th March and really didn't want to leave. Our suite was immaculate and overlooked 4 mile beach. The whole ambience of the place is just delightful. Our stay included breakfast, which is served by the pool and is an excellent buffet. A measure of the place is that I felt compelled to write this review because I have never put a review on Trip Advisor before. If you intend visiting Port Douglas you really won't go wrong if you can get into the Peninsula
