The Peninsula is great
We stayed a week at Peninsula Hotel in Port Douglas September 2019. Great Choice! Gavin and Kiley run things and made our stay great. We were picked up at Cairns airport for the 1 hour ride. Hotel has a ground floor and two stories, (nice elevator). Breakfast was out of this world, served ground level by the pool & fountain, a cozy relaxed area. “Hi Tide” is their evening restaurant - Excellent filet mignon - we ate there several times. We had Room 27, which must have been one of the best rooms. We skyped our friends in the U.S. at sunrise from our private balcony with a view of the ocean Coral Sea. It had a living area with sofa, mini kitchen, breakfast table, bed which could be sectioned off. The large bathroom had a huge tub and separate shower. Laundry room was a few steps down the hall, closed at night to avoid noise. We would consider this property a splurge for us, but so worth it. We have great memories of Australia in Port Douglas at the Peninsula.
Beautiful view and rooms
We recently stayed here and were very happy with our choice. The reception staff were lovely especially the two blonde ladies and also the owners we had positive experiences. We had a room on the 2nd floor with magical views. The room was lovely, extremely clean and very spacious. The pool was nice and also quiet and a lovely temperature . The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is we really didn't enjoy our breakfasts. We went through the menu and excluding the granola, which was delicious, we found the breakfasts to be tasteless and dry at times especially the bacon and toast. We had to continually ask for butter. We had one main meal at restaurant and found it to be the same the fish was dry and the batter tough. I also would of loved to sit at the cafe while having breaky but do understand they wouldn't have room for outside customers if we did. Overall i would stay here again. It was lovely and quiet with a comfy bed, strong shower and beautiful views also management and front desk staff were lovely. Thanks Peninsula.
Wow this accommodation is definitely 12 out of 10 in our books
My wife and I were looking for local accommodation earlier in the year to celebrate our wedding anniversary and my birthday and happened to walk in to this jewel in Port Douglas. We were met by the unit managers Heather and Norman English to say we were greeted almost like members of their family would be a gross understatement, even at that stage it was just a day trip for lunch on our part and a passing inquiry about accommodation we were treated as if we were royalty. We were shown several rooms and settled on the Peninsula room views from three sides of the rooms yes I mean rooms all 6 of them a spa bath to die for and the most comfortable bed I’ve slept in for a long time we will be back sooner rather than later.
Top of the Crop
Enjoyed several days at the Peninsula Resort. It was everything we could ask for and then some. Location could not have been better, room was excellent, and the crown in our 4 night stay was the unfailing attitudes of staff to ensure our stay was perfect. The restaurant HiTide also matched the quality of the property with food and service. We will certainly stay again at the Peninsula.
Great staff, room was excellent. Location excellent. Nothing to fault. Enough kitchen stuff to keep you happy. Nothing is further than a 5 or 10 minute walk. Room facing the Ocean is well worth it. Restaurant is pretty good as well. So sad to see Port Douglas suffering with lack of tourism
