We stayed in the "honeymoon" room which is bigger than the rest and the doors open overlooking the sea and you can see Hinchinbrook to the right. There's a modern balcony to chill out on and the breeze through the netted, security doors means you can leave your balcony door open all night. The whole room has been recently upgraded... More

Amazing hospitality. Ideally located close to all amenities on the waters edge you find a very clean quiet comfortable Motel. We arrived on the Spirit of Queensland from Cairns for a quick overnight getaway. Thank you Jan and Steve.

Can only echo many of the other reviews. What a place to stay - we stayed one night on way to Airlie Beach from Port Douglas and were lucky enough to have room 6 (described by Janet as the Honeymoon Suite :-)). A simply stunning room with balcony overlooking the sea across to Hinchinbrook Island. What a way to fall... More

We stayed here just one night whilst driving up the East coast from Brisbane to Cairnes. We have stayed at various motels along the way but this one has been the best. Janet and Steve make you feel very welcome and nothing is too much trouble. It is a beautiful motel in a beautiful location right on the seafront. However... More

We stayed at Beachfront motel Cardwell after reading trip advisor reviews. Thanks for a neat, clean and comfortable room. Ours was a late check in for our young family in transit. Janette was so friendly and made us feel welcome arriving so late. Our room was spacious and kitchenette was great to make quick breakfast in morning for the family.... More

I stayed at this motel the night before we set off to do a 3 night hike on Hinchinbrook Island. Steve and his wife could not have been more welcoming and helpful. My room was semi self contained and very comfortable and quiet. On returning from out hike we were welcomed back and given a cold beer before putting out... More
