Our third visit to this beautiful motel. One of the best we have visited. Rooms are spacious and have just about everything you could expect in a motel room. Large bathroom. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very quiet at night. Pool was warm. The only negative and one we haven't encountered before was that, it was a warm night and... More

The acting manager was on the desk as we checked in. The customer service offered was exceptional. Several suggestions were made as to places to eat in town in addition to what the kitchen there was serving that night. Our room was well appointed and the lovely little extras (choc mints on the beds, excellent and reliable wifi etc etc)... More

We had stayed here before a year ago and we enjoyed it enough to stay here again. Had a very similar very large room, with a rear patio. Had a nice chat to the owner who gave us some good background on Bowen and surrounds. Had a great sleep followed by a nice breakfast.

Have never encountered a more friendly, helpful and delightful receptionist. This young lady took the time to find out what I was interested in and provided advice and directions on what to see and where to eat. My room was superb - spacious and clean with a microwave and recliner lounge chair. The bed was excellent - wish I had... More

I have stayed here for work sporadically over the last month or so and the service you get is exceptional. They are friendly, thoughtful (a 'shout' is offered on check-in after a long day at work) and very accommodating. As a female traveller you feel safe in the rooms. Although I have never eaten in the restaurant or had room... More

We would recommend this establishment to everybody from singles to family's. The rooms are large and spacious and well appointed with modern appliances and upmarket furnishings. It is located just a short stroll to the beach and an even shorter stroll to restaurants and pubs. The whole place is clean and well looked after and the staff are very helpful... More

Great big, new apartments. We traveled with 4 adults and 2 kids and had plenty of room for two portacots. Each room has its own ensuite. Nice big kitchen. The only downside was the dishwasher was dirty and stunk, so we didn't use it. Lovely owner and I would stay there again.

Always well looked after. Clean & spacious rooms and close to town. Kim & staff always make us welcome & go out of their way to help. Kev always stays here when working in or around Bowen and district.

Thanks Guys, Most of our clients are returning business clients like yourselves and we really work hard to make our Motel a home away from home for our regulars and we are always surprised and exited when we get so many holiday travellers coming back year in year out. Trip Advisor and reviews are so important that I will keep... More

We are a family of four heading back from a trip up north and were just after a place to crash for the night. What we got was so much more! Kim and his team were so nice and friendly, the room was wonderful and clean and the beds were very comfortable. If we weren't travelling home for work we... More
