We stayed at Cardwell for one night towards the end of an extensive road trip around Australia. This motel was a lovely surprise :). Located directly across from the beach, with nothing interrupting the views apart from occasional traffic on the beach road in front of the room. Located with in easy walking distance to local store and not much... More

Great value for money motel with amazing sea/island views. Our room was not big but absolutely immaculate and Steve & Janet have presented it very well. We sat on the verandah and enjoyed the view having breakfast and dinner which we cooked on the bbq. Janet & Steve were wonderful hosts and very welcoming. We were only passing thru, saw... More

Whilst travelling from Cairns, we stopped in at Cardwell late one evening and we were glad we spotted a wonderful beachfront motel, with stunning views to the ocean. A warm welcome from Steve and Janet made our stay even more memorable. Our unit was right on the end with a verandah which looked out to Hinchinbrook Island - a wonderful... More

I guess we did what others before have done, booked a cheaper room And then saw the top of the range apartment - no contest - and no regrets! Stunning would be an understatement, and the bed was akin to sleeping on A cloud. Coupled with the easygoing and friendly attitude of Steve and Janet Makes a return visit when... More

This motel is conveniently located by the beach in Cardwell. The owners, Steve & Janet, take very special care in presenting their motel rooms. Each room is very tidy, clean and comfortable. There is a self contained kitchen with all you need. You don't need to lug anything into your room except for a change of clothes. Although the motel... More

We called at almost 9pm on a rainy Friday night enroute to Cairns, deciding to call it a night and continue on the next morning. So glad we did. Clean, comfortable and beautiful view to wake up to. The owner was helpful and friendly. I would stay there again without question,

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.
