What an amazing motel! The staff was ceptionally friendly, the bed was comfortable, and there was a great view from the deck. The room was spacious, bright and clean. All the little things made us feel welcome and the supplies for tea/coffee and eating were all we needed. We really enjoyed our stay! Thank you to the owners!

We travelled to Cardwell with a number of couples for a wedding, we were all made feel welcome by the lovely owners Janet and Steve who had a chat and checked us in. We were then pleasantly suprised by the clean modern rooms with a lovely view of the beach from the balcony. Steve, one of the owners went above... More

Stayed one night on March 15, 2015. Janet and Steve were the some of friendliest hosts we have come across. I don't usually leave reviews but feel their service warrants it, stunning views to wake up to - we got up to watch a lovely sunrise.

Stayed here for 4 nights on the way from Townsville to Port Douglas. Janet and Steve's hospitality and attention to detail and the fabulous location made this an unexpected delight. If you're looking for somewhere in the area you won't be disappointed with the Cardwell Beachfront Motel. If you can, book room 6 - the views over to Hinchinbrook are... More

Only stayed here for one night, wish it was more. The rooms are clean & comfortable & Steve was any amazing host, nothing was too much trouble. The views from the balcony of Hinchinbrook Island & the sea are stunning. Would definitely recommend this hotel if you're in Cardwell.

With two balcony's, one sea facing and one side facing there was loads of room to enjoy the view. There was... More

Cardwell is a beautiful little town! "Cardwell Beachfront Motel" is a great place to stay when in Cardwell. We stayed September 2013 in a queen room (room10 I think) which had everything we needed for our overnight stay, it was very clean and comfortable with stunning ocean views from the deck. The manager was very welcoming and helpful, which is... More

Where should I stay at Cardwell, a small town between Cairns and Townsville, after my visit to Hinchinbrook island and also the Edmund Kennedy National Park? I did a google and found Cardwell Beachfront Motel – the TA reviews looked ok! After an exciting mangrove trip to Hinchinbrook island (with John at Absolute North Charters – John knows almost every... More

We had the fortunate opportunity to book "The Ocean View Executive" room. Absolutely beautiful views looking out to the sea and Hinchinbrook Island from the private balcony. And to wake up to these views from your bed is just unbelievable. Steve and Janet are the friendliest people and the rooms are very clean and really comfortable. We'll definitely be back... More
