Great place and a great price. Our family had to return to Bowen for unfortunate circumstances and Prue was very understanding and helpful when we asked for early check-in. I have always been drawn to the spectacular front of the lodge and i was not disappointed once inside either. Rooms were clean & tidy and the pool looked amazing even... More

Great place at a reasonable price. Suited our family of five nicely. A warm and welcoming reception. Unfortunately we were unable to visit the restaurant this visit. Certainly coming back again on our way thru.

We thoroughly enjoyed a... More

Decided to stop here as we were getting tired driving. Had a great night chatting with the owners and discovering Bundaberg rum & ginger beer. Funny place with a history to it. Food and room was fine and good value for money.

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.
