We found this place on one of the booking sites. What a huge mistake. This place is terribly run down. Huge gap under front door. Which allows anything to crawl under. The kitchen living room is old and not pleasing to the eye when you enter the room. I knew as soon as I had opened the door, it was... More

Nice outside but not so good inside. Spacious for the price but be warned. Couch in unit 4 horrible, dirty, stained, as well as the cushions need to be thrown in the bin. The worst squeaky single beds ever. Bathroom amenties are smelly, mouldy and not the best. Curtains mouldy and outdated. Fridge revolting. Needs a women's touch. Lot's of... More

Just awful, cobwebs all over, including some with spiders, lizard running across floor under what they would call a couch? No water pressure, furniture so old and filthy. Some sort of little insects biting all night.. Maybe if they don't gut them and refurb, they may like to get pest control in at least.. Road is very busy and noisy... More

The oweners have done a great job updating the units. Modern style furniture & linen. Modern kitchen & bathroom was a nice suprise for the $ paid. However ours smelled REALLY bad. At first glance the room was clean however if the little things are not kept on top of this place will go downhill VERY fast. Definitely needs a... More

After reading the reviews, I knew I was taking a risk. My argument was that time has lapsed since the last review and maybe the management had made some improvements... And they have! I booked an ocean view unit which indeed offered an ocean view. The unit itself is tastefully furnished, clean & modern. The unit shares the balcony with... More

We stayed for one night in March after a very long drive. We arrived at the motel and were shown to our room. The room was very very dated and smelled terrible. The bathroom smelled mouldy and damp, there was dust and cobwebs everywhere, but the basic bedding appeared clean, and as there was not much choice of accommodation in... More

Lovely little place away from everything (while right next to everything) wonderful service and cheap as chips!! I have stayed here 5 times now and will not stay anywhere else in Bowen ever again. Caught some really nice fish 20m from my room.

The photos make this place look pleasant and its beachside location is good. However, the units themselves are dated, run-down, badly managed and not maintained. We arrived late and needed to wait quite a while for someone to arrive with a key. The room itself was in urgent need of a makeover and not entirely clean, although at least the... More

This is a poorly run establishment. The unit itself was in less than average condition, cracked and loose tiles on the floor, broken light shades, air con on its last legs and the rubber door seal completely came off when opening the shower door. I also had to park a fair distance from the room and drag my bag through... More

After a long drive we were excited to arrive, though very disappointed in the room, small, dark, musky smelling and very dated - a coat of paint would change the mood there quickly. First thing I requested - password for the WiFi - nope, don't have it! Then we thought we'd have dinner in the restaurant - no don't have... More
