Friends recommended Horseshoe Bay as a place to visit. Glad we did and glad we stayed here. Had a ground floor room so could walk directly to the garden and watch the sunset. Room was clean and comfortable and staff lovely. Would have loved to stay another night. A couple of minutes walk to Horseshoe bay - so beautiful. .

Great older style motel accommodation right on the bay in Bowen. Super quiet, clean and lots of room. There are two beaches within 100 metres of the rooms. Room had aircon, decent fridge, balcony and a microwave. Great place for families with lots of grassed areas. There is a restaurant on site but it is closed Sunday / Monday morning.

We have stayed here on a number of occasions over the past 20 years, primarily because of the location - Horseshoe Bay on one side and sweeping beaches on the other (with the most spectacular sunsets). Our ground floor unit had been recently refurbished and came complete with all the amenities (including a QS bed) a traveller would expect -... More

We were lucky enough to have chosen this lovely little resort for our 3 night stay in Bowen. As others have mentioned, this isn't a new, modern resort but it certainly has plenty of charm & character. Our room on the upper floor was clean, a good size & had a small, well equipped kitchen. From our balcony, across the... More

We stumbled across this resort while looking for a single night en route to Cairns. Stayed in a 'motel' unit and loved it. Highlight was the small balcony with a great view across some beautiful tropical gardens to the bay. The bay was no more than 30 metres away. Room was well sized for a motel room, with room for...

We were lucky to find a room here late one Friday afternoon. Although the resort isn't new and trendy the room was perfect; spacious, comfortable and clean. Everything was well maintained and very well appointed. We sat on the deck of our room with a glass of wine and watched the sun set over a beautiful rocky bay. It was... More

Only a quick overnight stay for me unfortunately. The rooms were very clean, bed was comfortable and the rooms were very quiet (couldn't hear the people staying next door which was unusual in a hotel and muc appreciated). Views were great, towels were large and soft, indian restaurant on site. Rooms were slightly tired, but that did not bother me... More

After years of driving past the Bowen exit we finally pulled in to stay the night as it was getting late. We happened across this absolute little treasure of a resort. Granted it is not a new flashy resort but the rooms are spacious and clean. The bed comfy, the staff very obliging and the view well it is amazing.
