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.

We stayed for two nights in a two bedroom townhouse. It was clean with all the comforts. The person in reception was polite and helpful and gave us a Seniors Card discount which we appreciated. We would definitely stay there again.

We have just returned from a fantastic couple of days in Cooktown. The Seaview Motel was a great spot to stay, old but clean, facilities were good & position fantastic. A short walk along the street to restaurants. Across the road from the river with great views even from the Budget rooms.

I love visiting Cooktown and enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and soaking up the history of the town. I always stay at the Seaview if I can as it has the best views and is easy walking distance to shops, clubs, pubs and the famous Jetty.

Comfortable room reasonably priced though quite basic and not over endowed with space however there is plenty of room on the lawn outside. Laundry facilities are available for a few dollar coins. Easy walking distance to all restaurants and attractions.
