After searching online for an affordable place to stopover between Townsville and Cairns i found this accommodation. Glad i chose it! It was easy to find, right on the water, close to places to eat in town and Steve the owner was friendly and helpful. The bed was comfy and the room was clean. Thanks :)

We stayed before and after walking the Thorsburne Trail on Hinchinbrook Island. Janet and Steve could not have been more welcoming and helpful, from picking us up and dropping us off at the station and ferry, to ordering fish and chips from the local chippy for us. What a joy it was to return to our beautiful room after 6... More

What a fantastic place to stay. We had two rooms for our family of six and both were immaculate, bright and pleasantly decorated. Since we arrived after dark, we were surprised by a beautiful view of the water when we woke up in the morning. Janet and Steve were wonderful hosts, extremely accommodating and very pleasant to visit with. They... More

We choose the Beachfront Hotel due to other reviews and were not disappointed. Helpful and friendly management and nice clean rooms with everything you need and in a fantastic location. We were even able to leave bags there while we hiked Hinchinbrook Island, couldn't ask for more.

Spent a few nights at the beachside with family. Excellent clean rooms with a great sea view from the balcony. Steve and Janet have to be the most helpful and friendly hosts i have ever met in my travels.

Lovely place with a relaxed vibe and the owners, Janet and Steve, are very friendly and helpful. We took advantage of the free bikes to take a ride down the awesome beachfront bike path, keeping an eye out for crocs (that's right, no swimming here!) and enjoying the comfortable winter temperatures. A stop in at the bottle shop sorted out... More

We booked 6 months ago on the basis of other reviews and the front corner beach view room did not disappoint Everything is nice and fresh looking, very clean and had all the comforts needed for a relaxing 2 day break. The view of the bay, the islands and the early morning sunrise were outstanding. The bathroom is well laid... More
