Right opposite the front beach, with views to the bay, I was in a lovely fresh, modern unit in a nice bed, for 9 days. Lovely people, very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. It was incredible value at the price, having a separate bedroom and living room that was so clean it felt new. Whether for business or holidaying,... More

This would be a good place to spend a week or so. I don't know if Bowen is the place to be but the motel would certainly be good. It is located close to the water. The room has a large living space with separate bedroom and small kitchenette that has a microwave and hotplate. If you are interested in... More

We were driving South and looking for accommodation, we found this place in Bowen. Check in was great. The Lady was friendly and helpful. We felt very welcome. Location was not far from the water and a Pub was in walking distance with great food. Our room was facing a street but it wasn't noisy because there were hardly any... More

After arriving in Bowen for a medical emergency it was comforting to be directed to the clean,neat & comfy units of the Port Denison Motor Inn. We were greeted by a friendly & concerned lady, whom I believe to be the owner. Lovely clean unit, big bathroom & comfortable beds. Will definitely be staying again, hopefully under better circumstances. Deborah

We had a warm welcome from the owners and facilities in the motel were very good. It was a short walk to the jetty, where we saw turtles!!!! It was also close to the Grand View Hotel where we had one of the best meals we had eaten in Australia. A lot of the hotels we tried to stay in... More

The place is well maintained and looked after, it is klean. The staff is very friendly and very helpfull. It is not the cheapest accomodation but well worth the price. I can only recommend it. The place is walking distance to the Whitsonday island boats and the jetty.

What a great motel to stay in, they are rather units than motel rooms, with seperate bedroom and living areas. The sea view room had a lovely outlook to enjoy a morning coffee. This is a spot where you could stay one night or have an extended holiday for a week or more. Parking is away from the units, not... More

Clean spacious two room unit with a separate bedroom and lounge, joined by a great little kitchenette. Quiet. Parking is away from the units, so you are not disturbed when people leave early. Comfortable bed. Recently redecorated. Close to town centre for an evening meal.. Owners know how to run a hotel. Great value for money. Highly recommended. Would definitely... More

You won't be disappointed staying here!! The rooms were much larger than your 'standard' motel room. We had the ocean view room and cannot fault a single thing with the room. The customer service was even better than he room. The owners went out of their way to accommodate my late requests and even offered a late check out. Great... More

This looks very similar to a retirement or old nursing home. The owners have done a great job turning it into hotel accommodation. On the harbour, walking distance to town and close to all things needed for a stay. Only stayed for a night but I really liked Bowen. This motel is very cheap, very clean and well presented. Bed...
