We stayed here 18 months ago and the place has gone downhill since. Yes, the rooms are big but ours had broken and loose floor tiles and mould all over the wet areas. We had to go to the office 3 times just to pay the account - the managers wife could not use the EFTPOS machine and there was... More

The staff were amazing and so helpful. For a motel, the room was pretty big, we fit a family of six in there. It was clean, tidy and I didn't have a fear of unclean sheets. Also, there is access to a pool.

Very nice clean and tidy room, well presented, nothing too flash but very nice indeed. Priced appropriately for the style of accommodation that it is. Would definitely stay at this place again. The fellow at reception was very nice, helpful and up for a chat.

Fantastic friendly service. Efficient. Clean. Out of town so great for a quiet weekend away. Tea & coffee facilities great. No shortage of bathroom items. Great price. Will stay again for sure and will be telling everyone we know about this great place!

This is a typical old style motel. Good for a stopover but I wouldn't stay longer. It is average motel style. The manager was very pleasant. The air con is effective. It was clean. The road is nearby but the traffic is low overnight (a few large articulated trucks)

Have stayed here several times travelling between Cairns and places South. The rooms are large and clean, and refurbished, and a bit back from the road so it's quiet. Staff are friendly, and I had a nice midnight skinny-dip in the beautifully warm pool under the amazing stars!.

Eventho it is directly located at the motorway, the Bowen Arrow Motel is a lovely and quite place to stay. The rooms are quite big, tidy and have a nice shared garden in the back. Wifi was unlimited but the reception within in the room was very poor. Since the temperatures wont drop below 20° C outside, one can easily... More

Good position and friendly staff. Very basic however quite comfortable. Children enjoyed the Lorikeet feeding in the late afternoon. We all slept very well after a long day driving. Unfortunately I cannot comment on meals as we left very early before breakfast.

We arrived a little late in the evening, but the woman who talked to us was incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and the beds comfortable. The air conditioning/fans were a lifesaver and the shower was powerful and hot; great for a post-swim wash! We only stayed here one night and I really have no complaints.
