stayed here one night. The room was very comfortable and clean. Also very quiet. The managers were very friendly and helpful. I had dinner in the restaurant and the food and service was excellent. I will be back again

If you are having a function would highly recommend coming here, we went to a wedding reception. It was a buffet, the food was excellent! the staff were very friendly and professional. Oh and did I mention how taste the food was. We did not stay at the motel, only because it was book out. Compliments to the chef, and... More

Room comfortable and clean. Didn't eat at the motel but menu looked delicious. The owner very friendly, helpful and advised where to go and what to see in Bowen. Would definitely stay at the Castle again.

Was a lovely stay for the offshore powerboat races and breakfast was fantastic. Bed was slightly uncomfortable but all in all we enjoyed our stay. The weather was perfect and staff was lovely as well. Thank you so much. Raegene Mitchell

This motel is older but convenient to the highway for an overnight stop. We decided to eat dinner in the dining room, the sauce on the pasta was not as creamy as it should be. We would probably not stay here again.

After being on the road for over 24 hours my boyfriend and I really needed a good nights sleep. The male owner welcomed me and gave me a discount on the room with continental breakfast. We came pretty late but they said they rarely get to close before half 9 so give them a call if youre on a late... More

The location and distance from town is deceptive and it is a good walk into town to find a place to eat. Staff were very friendly and with breakfast included represented good value for an overnight stay. Old style rooms and ensuites were quiet and clean.

After having been stuck in Bowen due to a cyclone it was a big relief to get such a warm, friendly welcome from Prue at the Castle Lodge who went out of her way to help us out. Very reasonable price for the room, clean and comfortable. Highly recommended - thanks again!

For the price of the room, our stay exceeded our expectations. We only stayed one night as we were passing through on our way to Cairns, but we were delighted with the little touches that carried the castle theme through, from the drawbridge you drive over to the swords and shields in the restaurant. Excellent customer service, and a fantastic... More
