On Tuesday morning we again woke up quite early and got a jump to our day. We found a cute outdoor restaurant in Port Douglas and both enjoyed an incredibly fresh "Brekky", as they call it. It was by far the best meal we had in PD during our stay. After, we drove up to Daintree Rainforest and spent a few hours bush walking through Mossman Gorge - …
We have had a lovely day in Port Douglas. We have decided against going off to the Great Barrier Reef which we may or may not regret. The weather has been quite windy which could make a whole day at sea quite uncomfortable as there is no shelter. I think we saw some amazing fish and coral in the Whitsundays and a lady on that trip had done diving …

Initially we planned on doing a sailing trip around the Whitsundays however, due to bad weather conditions we were forced to skip this natural attraction and agreed to head further north towards Townsville (I guess you cannot have everything right?).
Townsville was the scene where the last travel ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Regal Port Douglas
My wife and I stayed two weeks at the Regal. We found the position to be excellent. We were able to walk to most places with the beach only a few minutes walk and the shops, restaurants just around the corner. The pool area is small but we prefer to walk to the beach than spend our time around a pool. We stayed on the top floor and used the stairs several times a day. We are both in our 50's and did not find it difficult although if you do have some disability that may be a need for concern. The staff were very friendly and helpfull. We would stay there again.
Stayed here for six nights. On arival with our two year old daughter we were told that we had been put in room 36a wich was on the top floor and had excellent views.
Excellent Location and Apartments
We stayed in a two bedroomed unit. The rooms were each self contained, connected by a private hallway, so secure for families.
The staff were excellent, very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. They also arranged babysitting, and the lady who came (Shirley) quickly placed our three year old at ease.
The location cannot be beat. A short stroll to Four Mile Beach, and right on Macrossan for access to all local amenities.
Would definitely stay here again, if we were lucky enough to return.
The Regal on Macrossan is fantastic if you're staying in Queensland. The apartments are well located at one end of Macrossan Street, the main street through Port Douglas. Only a couple of minutes walk away are lots of shops, bars and restaurants, plus the beach.
We stayed here for a few nights, and found it as others have said - clean, convenient, and spacious. We also were upgraded to a one-bedroom unit, and loved having the extra space and a washer/dryer in the unit. The management was very helpful and accommodating. The ONLY downside is that there is no elevator at present and dragging suitcases up three flights of unairconditioned stairs was not much fun. Less than a block to shopping, restaurants, post office, etc. We liked being close to things and were very glad we had decided against the larger places out of town.
I did a LOT of research to find a great place to stay in Port Douglas. Some of it was based on reviews from this site. Anyhow, we are SO glad we chose this property. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with any questions or needs we had. We had to take a night flight and didnt arrive until very late, but the manager was nice enough to go out and buy milk and cereal so we would have something to eat in the morning. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a large living area. We had a huge balcony overlooking the pool with a grill, very large glass table, and a jacuzzi. To tell you the truth, the jacuzzi went unused as it was really too hot outside for a hot jacuzzi to be appealing...and it was an odd one as you had to lie down in it as if you were lying in a bed - so you might want to skip this option. The pool area is small but lovely, with a little island in the middle and a three story waterfall. It was never crowded. And the location of the Regal is perfect - it is on a quiet street away from any bars, but all you have to do is walk out, turn the corner and you are in town. We never had to worry about shuttles or taxis to town. We will definitely be staying here again!
By far one of the best Apartment hotels that we stayed during our 3 week tour of the East coast of Australia. The location is absolutely unbetable compared to any of the other Hotels in Port Douglas. We were really impressed with the prompt email communication we had with the staff prior to arrival and their friendliness. Not only did they book airport trasnfers for us but upon arrival we were given a detailed guide on Port Douglas and the best way to see the Great Barrier Reef and all at no extra cost or comission to them in any way!. We were upgraded from a studio to a 1 bedroom apartment and the indoor Jacuzzi was a real treat. Rooms are so clean and furnished really well. The room had a washing machine and a dryer plus very well kept kitchen with plenty of crockery. Extremly good value for money and the manager himself helped us with our luggage and told us that they are in the process of installing lifts which I am sure will be an added bonus for guests to carry their luggage up and down.
My third stay in Port Douglas in four years but my first time at the Regal Port Douglas. Stayed here for 12 nights in January this year an we were upgraded to one of their honeymoon suites, #39, and it was fantastic! We had a huge and I mean huge private roof terrace with a jacuzzi hot-tub, every evening we spent up there just gazing at the stars! The location was superb, we were on the top floor so we had privacy and peace and quiet and a marvellous view of the village and yet we were in the centre of the village, the shops, restaurants and bars are all 2-3 minutes stroll away, you really get to savour the charm and atmosphere of the place, if you stay at one of the 5 star hotels a few miles out it is not the same at all, believe me, and you have to rely on taxis or shuttle buses. The staff at the Regal are all extremely pleasant and helpful!!!!
PERFECTION IN PARADISE
Thank you "The Regal" for making our stay in Paradise so perfect!
This is a wonderful hotel in the perfect location. The rooms are huge and spotlessly clean with every convenience you require.
The management team were very welcoming and willingly answered our questions on trip to the Barrier Reef and gave us some great tips on places to eat. (Try "On the Inlet" at Sunset - Fantastic!)
All the guests we spoke to here agreed that this must be one of the gems in Port Douglas.
We can't wait to return here and will recommend this place to everyone travelling to Northern Queensland.
Relaxed easy living
Had a week there and it is an excellent place to stay. We had the top floor (honeymoon suite) which has a very, very large outdoor area that includes an outdoor spa. It also has an indoor spa bath. Furnishings etc are of a high standard and the resort was well maintained. It also has an excellent pool area. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly. It is well located being a few minutes walk from 4 mile beach and close to numerous restaurants.
