“Looks run down, smelt dusty, and just a not a good experience.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012 via mobile

The place looks run down from the street. The room had no ventilation. The air conditioner was left running to disguise the smell of dust. The bathroom had no exhaust fan, there was some mold on the tiles and the paint on the ceiling had cracked. The bookin was for two people but on one tired bath towel was provided. I don't think this hotel got proper planning permission for its access as to exit the property you exit on a court bowl via a gravel track. Overall this place seemed a bit dodgy and the $135 seemed a little steep. I think people are taking advantage of the resource boom in the area. Workers needing temporary accommodation and hotel owners making he most of it.

Don't hesitate to stay here where the location is sensational (just metres from Azure waters), and quiet as you would wish.
Richard is happy to cater to your every whim.
Thoroughly recommendable when you're next visiting the Capricorn and Central Queensland coastal parts.

Room Tip: I suggest the Villas.

We recently stayed for 3 nights in one of the Villas. Our Villa was very spacious, clean and comfortable.The Manager was one of the friendliest we have ever met and made our stay that much more enjoyable. Boyne Island is very pretty and we would definately stay again.

Check in was smooth and they had all my details there. However, they have an honesty system for early checkouts (before 9am!) which is a bit hard to do if you pay everything on credit card.

The room was clean, the bathroom was clean and there was a standard mini-bar. In my room was a double and a single, which for 150AUD per night is pretty good. I didn't use the amenities as I was literally using this as a stop and sleep.

The walls were pretty thin though and I got woken up by the guy obviously going off to his shift at the mine or gas station at 4:30am.

I would stay here again for a similar trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back so you don't get woken up by FIFO miners on their way to the early sh...

We recently stayed at Boyne Island Motel & Villas for 2 weeks and it was GREAT. A hearty THANK YOU to Jenny & Neil for making our stay very comfortable and for their warm, friendly smiles. Nothing was ever a bother.The Villla was clean and very comfortable. The area is very peaceful and great for families. I definitely wouldnt take note of the bad comments left as we will be returning during the next school holidays.
Thanks Neil, Jenny & Jack

My partner and I recently stayed at The Boyne Island Motel and Villas. After a VERY long car trip, it was a great place to rest for the night. Neil and Jenny were friendly and the atmosphere was peaceful. Very quiet too. We slept really well. It is a little disturbing to read the bad reviews people have posted for this motel. Don't take any notice of them, it is a great place to stay and would be even better if you had the time to holiday there!!!
