Staff were great to deal with, rooms were clean and had everything you would need for a getaway but still felt like home, Ocean view was beautiful and great BBQ area, everything was so close and handy, we will definitely be staying again soon.

Fantastic location, just across the road from the beach. PET FRIENDLY and a really nice welcome for us and our pooch. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable and it had everything we needed. We will stay there again.

Friendly check in. Very clean and well looked after..ocean facing room.. BUT .. small aircon in bedroom could not cool down lounge area.. could not open windows for breeze as smokers sitting outside their rooms next door. For same reason couldn’t sit outside and enjoy view.

Hi fellow traveler 738158, Thank you for your review. We are disappointed you did not enjoy your stay with us. We are looking for the room where the manhole trim is falling off. (46 rooms - still checking) We do regret the bathroom floor water not draining correctly and have plans in place to update all the bathrooms this year. Our office hours are 9am to 7pm on Saturday and Sunday as advertised on our office doors. We lock up our laundry overnight as a matter of security not to keep our guests out. It is usually the first door to be unlocked every morning and the last one to be lock up every night. We apologize for the inconvenience we have caused you and hope you will give us another try when next in Bowen.
