Very limited options here in Normanton - we tried the tourist cabins but they were full so went to Gulfland. Very dated, tired rooms, and not very clean at all. Incredibly noisy and ineffective air-con (took most of the night to bring temp down from 35 to 22 degrees). Ants were bad, although I asked at reception for flyspray and I was able to spray them. No phone in the unit and the tv was out of order. The pool was filthy when we arrived, but a lot cleaner the next morning, and I was grateful for it in the heat. The management said they had only just taken it over, and they said they had quite a job on their hands to get it up to scratch, but that wasn't reflected in the price. It was far too expensive for what it was, especially compared to accommodation we had had at Mission Beach and Karumba Point. I wish them luck getting it back on its feet.
The Albion Hotel up the road had good meals at good prices, and was clean and airy. Thank goodness!
