this was our second stay at The Seaview motel and we had a comfortable stay once again. We had a clean, comfortable and importantly cool room with a wonderful view over the Endeavour river. We enjoyed the pool and are thankful to the staff who found our daughters prescription googles and posted them home to us. I would recommend staying... More

On my recent holiday travelling to far north Queensland, I visited many places for the first time in decades. Only Cooktown seemed unchanged. The Seaview Motel's name is misleading as the view is more of the Endeavour River than the sea, but a very fine view it is. My room was on the upper floor, and was spacious but hardly... More

I looked at all the accommodation online and this motel captured my attention because of the location and their reasonable prices but they were full. I emailed and ask them to call me if a room became available incase there was cancellations and they did. Elizabeth whom I didn't meet when I got there called me to advise that a... More

A bit expensive but quite a nice motel with range of rooms on offer [budget/3-4 star]. Good location close to all the things you need to find in Cooktown. Views across the water from the front cabins. Continental breakfast was great value. Good spot to relax after working all day.

With fingers crossed I had to take any room I could as I had left my booking way to late for the weekend of the Cooktown Cup, well from the moment my call was answered until check out I had a great experience. The rooms are nothing remarkable and would greatly benefit from more lighting, however once you open the... More

This motel is perfect. Spotlessly clean, everything you need to make you comfortable, friendly helpful staff, lovely gardens and swimming pool and the location right on the river. Sit outside in the gardens watch the sunrise whilst enjoying a coffee, idyllic. Perfect stopover wether for one night like us or longer.

We stayed only 1 night in their budget rooms area. It was spotlessly clean. Great views. Lovely spot to sit at the table and chairs outside the room and watch to sun set over the water. Laundry was very clean and the clothesline x4 had the best view of all. Great value and lovely staff.

This is my 2nd stay at this motel this year, and will always stay here when in Cooktown. We took another couple with us and all 4 of us stayed in one of the Townhouses. Had a very enjoyable weekend and the other couple also said next time they stay in Cooktown it will definitely be at the Seaview motel.... More

The 3 nights we spent in the Seaview Motel were hard to fault. Great price, clean, comfortable and quiet! The balcony that runs along the front of the upper story budget rooms has an amazing view, each room has a small table and chairs on the balcony, the sunsets are stunning. Helpful staff, lovely place to stay.
