Historical Traveler Reviews Peninsula Boutique Hotel Port Douglas
Honeymoon at Peninsula Boutique
We stayed for a week at the Peninsula Boutique. It has a great location if you want to saty in Port Douglas but yet have some quiet.
It is located directly across from 4 mile beach and within walking distance of all the shops and eateries, yet is quiet in the area. There no children staying here, and I think this made it even quieter.
We had a room facing the ocean and beah. It was a wonderful view from the balcony. It had a small kitchen, living and dining area and then a bedroom and roomy bathroom. Robes and slippers are provided.
Breakfast is included and was served by the pool each day - it was very good. All teh food we had here was good.
One night we stayed in and just rented a movie and played in on the VCR in the room. We also did our laundry in the complimentary washer and dryer down the hall.
They provided us with transportation to the airport as well.
The staff were all very nice and knowledgeable.
I would stay here again if back in PD.
We stayed here for six nights on our honeymoon in July 2004 and it was a fantastic time! We were lucky enough to get room 24 which had a huge balcony overlooking the ocean and also another balcony overlooking the pool. The room was clean and well equiped and at night was very quiet. I agree with all comments made that the staff were very friendly in a very genuine way and made our stay lovely - after being in huge city hotels, this was very welcome. Excellently located for eating and drinking this hotel is definitely worth checking out!!
My wife and I stayed at the Peninsula in March 2004 and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The hotel is perfectly situated across the road from four mile beach and within easy walking distance of Macrossan St, the main shopping and restaurant area. The standard of restaurants in Port Douglas is extremely high but we found nowhere better than the Peninsula's own Hi-Tide restaurant and we will always remember the view of a golden full moon rising over the Pacific as we dined on Scallops and Barramundi. The staff were all extremely friendly and could not do enough to help whatever the request, whilst the standard of housekeeping of the apartments was faultless. A real gem.
This hotel is excellent - we booked through Trailfinders UK. The suites are fantastic and very well equipped.The pool and terraces are nice and best of all it's a stone's throw from a great beach, and from the sleepy town. Very good choice and highly recommended.
A memorable experience
I cannot speak highly enough of the wonderful facilities and service at the Peninsula Hotel. My husband and I were on a round the world trip of a lifetime and had the most wondeful stay here. It was relaxing and luxurious. We hope to return!!!
I totally agree with the previous review. We travelled around Australia during October 2003 & we stayed at the Peninsula Hotel whilst in Port Douglas. For location alone it is the best hotel in Port Douglas and the added bonus of being treated so wonderfully is a treat not often found. The rooms are excellent and it is worth the extra for the oceanview suites. The food in the restaurant is really good too. The atmosphere is relaxing & chilled & nothing is too much trouble. Miss this hotel and you will have missed a golden opportunity.
Our favorite hotel
We traveled all over Australia Dec 2003 and this hotel was our favorite! From the moment you enter you feel like you are part of the Peninsula family. Very personal service - the staff look after your every need. The hotel has a modern design with terraced pools and waterfalls. The suites are large and include full kitchen facilities, oversize tub, and a large balcony. Full breakfast is included. The intimate outdoor hotel restaurant serves excellent lunch and dinner.
Port Douglas is a charming beach town in a great location for exploration of the reef and rainforest. The hotel is across the street from the beach and a 2 minute walk from "downtown". The staff will make any trip and restaurant reservations for you. The boutique hotel experience is far superior to being room #1602 at a high rise hotel.
A great start
My wife and I started our tour of Australasia here in October 2001 and what a great start it was. We cannot praise Trish and her staff highly enough. She gave us sound advice we still smile about - "on holiday in Australia, wake up, roll out of bed, have breakfast and go". She organised everything for us so that we were able to do just that. We can't wait to return.

The Peninsula Hotel, Port Douglas
A courteous, friendly, service oriented staff; clean and well appointed rooms. Very spacious, including kitchen, balcony, king size beds, jacuzzi, and conveniently located to the beach. Far superior than being in large hotels. As one who has traveled extensively, I highly recommend the Peninsula. Port Douglas is inviting, charming, safe, and allures me there every November. The shopping is fantastic with a large international supermarket, Coles. I advise you to use your ATM card for cash; it's easy, safe, and you should receive a better exchange rate than a currency exchange. Enjoy your holiday.
Excellent in every way!
I can't say enough good things about the Peninsula. Great location across the street from the beach and a short walk/bike ride into town. Staff are wonderful, hotel is gorgeous. We were upgraded to an oceanview suite and everything was top class. Large rooms, great bathrooms (freestanding shower and huge tub), all designed to perfection. Food selection at the hotel restaurant is limited, but there are plenty of places in Port Douglas to have great meals. If there is any justice, this place will be booked into the next century.

... night here. The kids had a good play in the playground in the afternoon before we made dinner, had our showers and went to bed. The next morning we booked a camp ground up on Cape Tribulation where we knew they could accommodate caravans, packed up our gear and hit the road. We never realised until we started doing our research in Port Douglas that you actually have to take your rig on a ferry over the Daintree River to get up to Cape Tribulation. It's not expensive - ...

Then it was steak on the bbq for dinner, perhaps fish will be on the menu before too long.

There were also parrot like birds in the tree above us along with tiny yellow birds and Azure Hummingbirds. The tree we were under had brilliant red blossoms that were very unusual - but nothing is usual in a rainforest. We boarded the little boat - not full and the Australian driving it had a good sense of humor - as most Australians we met in the ...
