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.

We stayed here one night on our way north. The room was basic but clean and neat. We were on the ground floor overlooking the lawn area. It is within walking distance of hotel and restaurants. We took advantage of the free BBQ and tables and chairs overlooking the beautiful Endeavour river. Great spot to have a drink and watch... More

At half the price of the best hotel in Cooktown this is a good option. Rooms on the upper level (slightly more expensive) have magnificent views over the river and the sand dunes on the opposite side. Sunsets are great. Rooms have everything you need and a comfortable bed.

Positioned across from the water and Marina, the unit that we had was very clean with balcony and the best view in town. We weren't offered a seniors discount. The location was quiet and walking distance to cafe's and restaurants.
