I am so surprised at the bad reviews. We had to escape our home in Yeppoon because of Cyclone Marcia and ended up here. Nigel (owner or manager) offered us a special rate because of our circumstances and made sure we had an ocean view room. We think the room is nice and is self-contained which gives us the ability...

We booked 2 nights but only stayed one. The rooms were old and the level of cleanliness in the bathroom was below standard. On the Saturday night the amount of noise from drunken people outside in the carpark meant we had little sleep and one of them was the owner! No value for money here and reception was still shut...

Stayed a night here on our way up North from Victoria, but room and bathroom was very tired, not all that clean, and very small bathroom. Nice view over pool towards beach on balcony, but probably the lower of standards of all the motels and apartments we stayed in on our 7 week travels.

Tannum Sands was recommended as a stop over on our way to Brisbane from Port Douglas and it did not disappoint. We were allocated the comfortable family room for 2 adults and 2 teenage children (17 & 15) and as a result, stayed an extra night. The facilities were good, great sun terrace with a fantastic ocean view and most... More

I stayed here once for work - the car parking is really small so found it interesting to get the ute out. If you have a big car, park on the street. The room was nice enough - but found the must do the dishes before leaving a little odd. The room did have a nice view of the beach/tree... More

The only motel to chose in Tannum Sands. Beautiful views, lovely pool, garden and bbq area, clean, comfortable and super friendly. Self contained (mini kitchen) is handy with surf club and beach easy walking distance. Shopping and restaurants just 5 minutes away. Downstairs units are wonderful for the walking impaired such as myself, and the Owner, Nigel Walker, goes out... More

Stayed 4 enjoyable nights in upper room overlooking pool and sea scape. We had a great view over the water and shipping activities. Our room was very comfortable and functional for dining in and we made good use of the clean pool and well setup bbq. We had quiet nights listening to the lap of the waves close by. Our... More

My wife and I were driving from Cairns to Brisbane in early February during our tour of Eastern Australia when we happened on this little gem quite by accident. What we found was a nicely appointed clean motel nicely situated with ocean views close to a beautiful beach. The owner was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. We... More
