3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I was really happy to get a budget motel room for the night in beautiful Cardwell, that was until the Friday night backpacker party began and kept going past midnight. I am used to caravan parks having rules about quietening down by 10pm, but thought that midnight on a Friday would be fair enough. But no, the extremely loud party... More

We got a free upgrade to a motel room and it was great! One double bed and one single with a kitchenette with a fridge and microwave. The room smelled and looked lovely and clean. The owners were really friendly and helpful offering us to give us a lift to where we had to be in the morning Everything was... More

This was one worn out unit. Clean enough, but not very nice. 2 rattly old air-con machines kept it coolish in middle of summer, but hard to sleep with. Wouldn't stay there again considering it was only a couple more bucks to go to the beachfront motel.

Hi there, when booking my accommodation for February I made some major errors in my booking meaning that I nearly didn't have a holiday. Anyway to cut a long story short Leonie and Rod were very caring and understanding and sorted it out for me. Thanks again.

We stayed for two nights in a villa. We all had a great time. The villa was very clean and had kitchen facilities, free wifi and a tv and dvd player. The kids could hire dvds from the office. We loved spending time in the pool and the birds in the tropical gardens were lovely to watch. It was a... More

We booked a Twin Room over the internet so that we could have a base while we visited Cardwell. To say that we were disappointed is an understatement. The 'room' was a small section of a demountable cabin - with an airconditioner that barely worked. No towels were in the room and you needed a cut lunch and a water... More

We planned a four day stop in Cardwell and stayed for ten. This beautiful small park situated in a magnificent tropical garden setting is across the road from the beach and really close to shopping (IGA 150 metres) Has great showers, well equipped laundry, new dump point and free WiFi. We have a big rig and had no problems getting... More

We stayed at this holiday park on the way north to Cairns. We booked a unit (a studio room) which was in a block of other units. It was quite private as the patio had walls either side so we could sit and sip our wine in peace. The room had a double bed and a single bed with bathroom... More
