Bowen Arrow Motel
Ranked #4 of 5 Bowen B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

We have had the same service etc as our last trip which has reinforced my comments from last year. The rooms are good value for the price and are clean and comfortable.

The meals delivered to your room are excellent. Right now most of central and southern Queensland are isolated from ex tropical cyclone Oswald with most places shut down due to shortages of everything but we have been looked after quite well. Friendly people, what a sea change.

The true test is returning and finding it meets your expectations which is what every one really wants.


I'll be back

Hi Trackker,

Would like to thank you for your kind words twice over, as we have only taken over the motel last May and have never run one before.
We have also traveled a bit for work in the past and i guess that has given us the drive and respect towards any guests that stay here at our motel to provide the service that we expect if not more so. We are not perfect but we try above our best and look forward to your next visit.

I travel around a bit for work so I get to stay in many locations. The Bowen arrow is a clean comfortable and relaxing place to settle down after a day of working. the pool is clean and looks quite new.
i recommend sitting out the back in the late afternoon for a beer so as to catch the breeze from the coast.
The staff are nice and cook pretty decent meals for breakfast lunch and dinner if you require. Excellent for workers.
I Will be coming back if I am in Bowen again.
5 stars for the play on words (bowen arrow)

Hi Captvortex,

Would like to thank you for you review on our motel. We try our best to make any guest as comfortable for their stay as we can, with being a "worker" you are away from your own home for periods of time you would like similar comforts in motels and owner/managers.
Hope to see you again soon.

Pleasantly surprised, rooms were comfortable and most of all, clean. Puts me at ease straight away, seasoned travellers know what i mean. We travel a lot for work and found the meals excellent and delivered with a freindly smile. Recommend to all.

Stayed here on 3 September 2011. We'd driven a fair distance and were feeling tired, when we came across this roadside motel on the outskirts of Bowen. Our criteria is always the same. Place must be clean and tidy, comfortable beds & good value. They also offered meals so decided to order our dinner as well. Enjoyed the sizeable meals which were bought to our room on a tray by the owner. Good hot food and very tasty. Excellent value. Highly recommend without hesitation. cheers
