The room was very small but was exceptionally clean and had everything that was required. We only stayed one night but very friendly hosts who stay on sight were happy to chat. The room had the option of opening to a bigger area at additional cost, smart use of a small motel. Close quarters but would certainly recommend.

Came to Cardwell for a mini getaway from Townsville and stayed here. It's obvious why it gets such great reviews on Tripadvisor. It's an amazing location, on the beach and an easy walk to food and drink. The staff are amazing, very accommodating and even came to offer us fish and chips when they were going out to get it.

We stayed overnight at the Cardwell Beachfront Motel. It was casual and comfortable. The rooms were big and the deck inviting. It was also a pleasant walk to historical sites, good coffee and a well stocked supermarket. And the views were spectacular.
