We were on the island for a week and could only get a car from Wednesday to Saturday that was fine. The people in reception were absolutely amazing they were so kind! The owners were so understanding in the fact that we had to drop the car off early on the Saturday morning. The car we had was a Ford... More

I haven't stayed in the Motel Rooms, but always hire cars here for our regular day trips from the Mainland (Townsville). Their rates are great and their 4wd's are permitted to go to Radical Bay and West Point (which the mokes and regular vehicles can not). The service is always so friendly and helpful, going out of their way to... More

Stayed 2 nights. The manager ,Ms Helen , was very informative and helped arrange a rent a car for us directly from the hotel and also gave us a lift to the ferry next day which was sincerely appreciated Rooms very clean and hotel looks well maintained. Close to beach and good quiet location to enjoy the island.

The stay was very good. The rooms are self contained so you can make your own meals. We had a BBQ and all the implements were supplied including the cooking oil. Although we didn't have a problem with mozzies, coils were also supplied. The Inn is close to the beach and a pier. There is a tavern in walking distance... More

Called David at 8am on Sunday morning to enquire about car hire for the day and by 8.30am he was waiting outside our accommodation to take us to the car. Very friendly and professional service.

The rooms are extremely clean. Self contained which suits us. Grab a slab of beer, some nibbles and food when you first arrive then sit back and enjoy the quiet peaceful surroundings.

Great facilities and close to the pub. Owners could not be more helpful and attentive. Pool was very welcoming after a day of walking the tracks close by. A BBQ is for the guests use adjacent to the pool area, will do that next time.
