Eventho it is directly located at the motorway, the Bowen Arrow Motel is a lovely and quite place to stay. The rooms are quite big, tidy and have a nice shared garden in the back. Wifi was unlimited but the reception within in the room was very poor. Since the temperatures wont drop below 20° C outside, one can easily... More

Though we are very sorry about the Wi-Fi connection at the time of your stay, we are currently working on getting four more boosters right down the hallway so you will be able to sit inside your rooms and enjoy the fast...

Good position and friendly staff. Very basic however quite comfortable. Children enjoyed the Lorikeet feeding in the late afternoon. We all slept very well after a long day driving. Unfortunately I cannot comment on meals as we left very early before breakfast.

We arrived a little late in the evening, but the woman who talked to us was incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and the beds comfortable. The air conditioning/fans were a lifesaver and the shower was powerful and hot; great for a post-swim wash! We only stayed here one night and I really have no complaints.

As a regular traveller between Brisbane to Cairns the Bowen Arrow would have to be the most comfortable sleepover until the next leg of a big drive the next day. The staff know their customer well particularly the ones who look like they need a restful night. They are welcoming, very pleasant and go out of their way to provide... More

Delightful, homely room. Spotlessly clean. Watched a frog and birds in the garden at the rear. Delicious, very generous food delivered to the room. Of all the motels we've stayed in this is the 1 that stands out and I recommend without hesitation.

We have had the same service etc as our last trip which has reinforced my comments from last year. The rooms are good value for the price and are clean and comfortable. The meals delivered to your room are excellent. Right now most of central and southern Queensland are isolated from ex tropical cyclone Oswald with most places shut down... More

Hi Trackker, Would like to thank you for your kind words twice over, as we have only taken over the motel last May and have never run one before. We have also traveled a bit for work in the past and i guess that has given us the drive and respect towards any guests that stay here at our motel... More

I travel around a bit for work so I get to stay in many locations. The Bowen arrow is a clean comfortable and relaxing place to settle down after a day of working. the pool is clean and looks quite new. i recommend sitting out the back in the late afternoon for a beer so as to catch the breeze...

Hi Captvortex, Would like to thank you for you review on our motel. We try our best to make any guest as comfortable for their stay as we can, with being a "worker" you are away from your own home for periods of time you would like similar comforts in motels and owner/managers. Hope to see you again soon. Erika... More

Pleasantly surprised, rooms were comfortable and most of all, clean. Puts me at ease straight away, seasoned travellers know what i mean. We travel a lot for work and found the meals excellent and delivered with a freindly smile. Recommend to all.

Stayed here on 3 September 2011. We'd driven a fair distance and were feeling tired, when we came across this roadside motel on the outskirts of Bowen. Our criteria is always the same. Place must be clean and tidy, comfortable beds & good value. They also offered meals so decided to order our dinner as well. Enjoyed the sizeable meals... More
