8/10 Very Good

The welcome we received was lovely. The pool area is very nice and it’s a short walk to town. It was a little hot at night with just the fan but it was also very hot days when we were there.

Highly Recommend
I couldn’t fault my 5 night stay at the Travellers Budget Motel. Michael the owner was not there, but his daughter Gabby ran the place. Gabby and the other staff were extremely friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The dormitory was clean and comfortable. The shared kitchen was always clean and had a an extensive array of cutlery, pans, plates, anything you would need. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to visit Port Vila.

Friendly, welcoming staff quiet position.
I felt at home as soon as I arrived. I was in a nine bed dorm. but out of season so maximum was two sharing. One en-suite bathroom with shower. Toaster, kettle and microwave in the room and ceiling fans. An additional kitchen across the courtyard. A pool to cool off after a hot day. Five minutes walk to the waterfront and ten minutes to the town centre where there are restaurants, supermarkets and shops.

Initially the room was a bit smaller than expeected, but apart from that the motel was exceptional. The hospitality was above and beyond expectations. Kudos to the owner and his staff for an amazing experience in Port Vila.

Central location, great staff
I just came back from an extended weekend trip to Port Vila, and I am more than happy to have chose Traveller's Budget Motel for my stay. The location is a huge plus, and everything is easily accessible thru a walk or a short bus/taxi ride. Michael was extremely helpful in booking tours, transfers to/from the airport, giving recommendations about places to see, etc. Staff are always smiling and willing to help; Agnes helped me catch a bus to Mele, from where I took a ferry to Hideaway Island. Night conversations with Michael and the rest of the people staying at the motel were always fun! The room was neat and clean, and the bed comfortable. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who wants a true Port Vila experience!
