Bluewater Harbour Motel
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Bowen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 30, 2009

We stayed here for one night, as it was close to Airlie Beach and we didn't want to travel - but Bowen is a real hidden gem. We had no idea that Australia was filmed here! The accomodation is new, and nicely decorated. Our room had a small, private patio at the back, and we were visited by a couple of friendly frogs there! The owners are very friendly and helpful. We would also recommend going to Coyotes for dinner (in the town) - excellent Mexican food.

We had an amazing Sunday roast with all the trimmings, followed by a beautiful desert of local mangos & ice cream.
The company was lovely, the owner/operators are very warm & welcoming making both my wife & myself feel at home.
I'd recommend it to anyone wanting a great place to stay.

How great it is to find a nice new modern motel in beautiful Bowen. Nice sized room, peaceful and quiet, efficent airconditioning, great decor, desk, proper lighting, lounge chair, great beds/pillows. Just nothing to complain about. The owners will go out of their way to ensure you are comfortable and your needs are met. Like others I am tired of old dodgey motels and this place is a breath of fresh air
