A great place and the best staff I have experienced so far in Australia! So nice! You feel at home. We were stuck in Bowen because of the cyclone and we were so tired, but the staff made it all much better. A lovely place to stay. Thank you for at great stay and a lovely breakfast!

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

On a recent business trip to Bowen, I stayed at this hotel. The Owners were very organised and nothing was a problem. They catered and set up for our 18 guests to a training night, and as a huge suprise, they individually catered to each guest! The training room was set up in their restaurant, with the huge flat screen... More

Good value for a twin room, meal in restaurant was excellent thanks to JJ's (staff member) recommendation. Prices for meals were reasonable. The décor in the restaurant was remarkable, including an armoured knight mounted on a horse! The room was clean, tidy, dated. Service was excellent.

The service at the restaurant was fantastic and the food was delicious. The rooms are a bit old fashioned however very tidy and clean. Overall a great stay and highly... More

We drove into Bowen and this was the first place we saw. Carried on for a look around town and then came back to our first choice, Castle Motor Lodge. It looks great from the road and it didn't disappoint. Everybody we encountered were so friendly and helpful. We only stayed one night but would have been happy staying a... More

I stayed at this Motor Inn twice this month as I was travelling for work, from Cairns to Mackay and back again. I regularly stay at this type of accomodation and the Castle Motor Lodge has the friendliest management, reception and restaurant staff I have ever encountered. As far as Motor Inns go the roooms are very tidy and clean.... More

This motel was the 12th on our Australian holiday and my journal records "poorest motel so far". The room was really gloomy and outdated although clean. The dining room was closed and we were told when we checked in that breakfast would not be a full menu because the staff had been given the day off. Breakfast was a poor... More
