We had a warm welcome from the owners and facilities in the motel were very good. It was a short walk to the jetty, where we saw turtles!!!! It was also close to the Grand View Hotel where we had one of the best meals we had eaten in Australia. A lot of the hotels we tried to stay in... More

The place is well maintained and looked after, it is klean. The staff is very friendly and very helpfull. It is not the cheapest accomodation but well worth the price. I can only recommend it. The place is walking distance to the Whitsonday island boats and the jetty.

What a great motel to stay in, they are rather units than motel rooms, with seperate bedroom and living areas. The sea view room had a lovely outlook to enjoy a morning coffee. This is a spot where you could stay one night or have an extended holiday for a week or more. Parking is away from the units, not... More

Clean spacious two room unit with a separate bedroom and lounge, joined by a great little kitchenette. Quiet. Parking is away from the units, so you are not disturbed when people leave early. Comfortable bed. Recently redecorated. Close to town centre for an evening meal.. Owners know how to run a hotel. Great value for money. Highly recommended. Would definitely... More

You won't be disappointed staying here!! The rooms were much larger than your 'standard' motel room. We had the ocean view room and cannot fault a single thing with the room. The customer service was even better than he room. The owners went out of their way to accommodate my late requests and even offered a late check out. Great... More

This looks very similar to a retirement or old nursing home. The owners have done a great job turning it into hotel accommodation. On the harbour, walking distance to town and close to all things needed for a stay. Only stayed for a night but I really liked Bowen. This motel is very cheap, very clean and well presented. Bed...

The name of the place under-sells it, I think. I paid for a garden room but was upgraded to a sea view It was more of a holiday unit than a simple motel room - with a separate sitting room, and a well-equipped kitchenette. The price ($125) was higher than a typical motel too, perhaps, but justified by the amenities... More

As the title says, great value, perfectly clean and the rooms facing the harbour / beach are the pick. We think most do anyway. Friendly reception with information on the area. A vending machine for snacks and an outdoor area for gatherings. Located in the town centre within a hundred meters of a great local tavern for meals etc. Opposite... More

We booked in for 2 nights, stayed 4. Friendly helpful staff. Very clean and neat. Rooms (bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and large living area) had everything one would want. Great position with water view. We will be back for a longer stay next year.

Stayed one night on our trip from Sydney to Cairns and back . Modern roomy and comfortable . Friendly staff and not far from town . Had a great feed of prawns for dinner from one of the seafood co - ops on the waterfront , would recommend this motel.
