This motel boasts that it's the only one which overlooks the river and, basically, it's true, given its elevated position at the eastern end of Charlotte Street. It has no less than four grades of accommodation, but if you're wanting a modicum of privacy and really large rooms with your own balcony and four chairs overlooking the broad expanse of... More

We were extremely happy with the deluxe room, very roomy, good quality. We had previously stayed in the basic room some years ago, and so glad we made the decision to book the deluxe this time. Extremely happy with our room, sat on the verandah overlooking the Endeavour River, to eat our pizza ordered from the Italian Restaurant just up... More

Stayed in so called self contained unit right at the end of this large complex. It did look out to the Endeavour river harbour but it was a very basic unit. The shower was strong and hot and there is a small fridge and jug with small sink. The bed was just ok and the TV small. Not great value... More

Hi PKC54, Just a small point the room that you were in, was a semi-self contained, Not a self contained. And as such facilities are limited. But glad that you enjoyed the views from the room. Regards Sandra More

Back with our other set of Grandchildren staying in a townhouse which couldn't be more perfect! Plenty of space for everyone, 2 toilets, 2 bedrooms, full kitchen. Bring your clothes and food and you won't be able to drag yourself away from the view 😎

We were lucky enough to stay in the Deluxe Room - excellent for the price - not a cluttered room, lots of nice facilities, tea, coffee, hair dryer, iron and board, CLEAN - the bed was very comfortable, the blanket was real cotton - not the little 'nylon' thing most places now offer - the view was beautiful, the restaurants...

Lovely spot. The staff were so helpful. We were very lucky to have a ground floor room with disabled facilities since my mum cannot manage stairs. The disabled car park was located close to the door or the room and the access was a slopping pathway which was easy for mum to navigate. There is only one of there rooms... More

Decided on an impromptu trip to Cooktown. Many many years ago stayed at the Seaview as it was the place to stay. Called the motel direct, prior to setting off and was able to make a last minute booking. Originally booked a budget room ( which probably would have been more than fine) but on arrival decided to upgrade to... More

We stayed a night at the Seaview Motel during the Cooktown Discovery Festival and could not fault it. Our room was spotless and the view over the Endeavour River was magnificent. The motel is on Charlotte St (the main street of Cooktown) and just a short walk from a couple of pubs, some cafes/restaurants and the Captain Cook Museum.

this accommodation has a grand view undoubtedly the best in cooktown but sadly that is where it finishes maintenance in the bathrooms is required to bring the rooms to a reasonable level one would expect could be a real classy experience just needs so polishing up
