This relatively small motel is well appointed with a lot of thought going into the furnishings and even the number and positioning of power points. Beds are large and comfortable and the television in our room was huge. Perhaps their main assets are the owners Kim and Debbie and their wonderful staff who make you feel more like a member of the family than a guest in their motel.

The location of this motel was very good. the room was big and spacious and very clean and had cooking facilities. it had a great bbq area by the swimming pool and a good laundry. its just a shame that when we were there there was a couple of families travelling together and they all sat at the pool drinking and let their children run wild and they were slamming doors etc. you had to have a card to get into the room so they were knocking and yelling untill 11am. apart from that it was a lovely place to stay and we would stay againi

A wonderful clean and well kept motel. Our room had a little garden out the back that we could sit outside for a cuppa. The room was very well self contained and fairly large for 3 adults. The staff were very helpful. There was also under covered parking outside your door which was appreciated as it was raining.

Terrific motel. Excellent rooms and fantastic staff. I don’t normally stay in motels to be honest. Normally a Hilton person, but we decided to stay here and it has been nothing but exceptional. Well appointed rooms with a great fridge, smart TV with free Kayo for sport. Highly recommend this place if you are staying in Bowen

Very helpful staff and great clean accommodation. The restaurant wasn't open due to covid but room service was available and the food was good. Easy walk to the foreshore and a quick drive to everything else. The pool was very nice during the hot weather.

A nice motel…that is fairly centrally located. It is a drive from the beaches but is a short walk to the main drag and restaurants… The rooms are clean and the pool was a nice relief from the heat and humidity and a welcome sight having trekked around.

We’ve stayed in a few motels but this is one of the best. Very clean, quiet and well appointed, our stay was very pleasant. Wifi is the norm these days, and here it was fine, as were the streaming channels available on the smart TV. A very comfortable stay.

We stayed here as a family in a single room with a queen and two singles. The room was clean and spacious. Kim was very, very friendly on check in and gave good local advice regarding food options. Nice and quiet motel and we all slept well. Note that their onsite restaurant is not open currently due to Covid. We booked over the phone, as we had a question we needed to ask prior to booking. I note that they charged us $10 more than the price we had seen online, but we were ok with this minor difference.
