Great stop over, amazing views of Hitchinbrook island. Literally on the waterfront, we had a fab walk along the deserted esplanade on a balmy evening with a storm brewing. Very friendly staff. Ate in the restaurant, good food, reasonable price. Really good stop over.

Parked a caravan here for two weeks. Smallish sites but very close to spectacular beach. Excellent bar/restaurant attached to motel /caravan park. Cardwell is a great base to explore Nth Qld and this park is a great place to stay. Close to shops, pet friendly, good fishing.......(yawn).

Nice clean affordable accommodation incl ocean view. BUT, the seafood tower was awesome and worth the additional overnight stay. Don, Farah and other restaurant staff on the night were very helpful and friendly. Love the happy hour concept.

Beachcomber motel was a perfect stop over before heading to hike Hitchenbrook Island. Not 5 star but a clean room with a little patio looking out to the water. Great value. Nice restaurant onsite with nice views, huge meals and cheap drinks.

We stayed at the Cardwell Beachcomber on Friday night and were extremely satisfied with the room, the view, staff and food. Happy hour was very relaxing watching the waves in the ocean. The food servings were very generous and we were very impressed with a visit from the chef ensuring the food was perfect. You have to stay and enjoy...

This complex is on the beachfront and includes motel rooms, villas, a caravan park and a restaurant. We stayed in the ocean view villas for a family reunion. The villas are large with enough beds for 7 people. The décor is modern, the rooms are clean and spacious. The view is fantastic across to Hinchinbrook Island. The staff was friendly...

Would stay here again for sure, the rooms are a bit dated but look past this, the location is superb across the road is the water, and whether you take ground floor or upstairs you have a view. The beds are comfortable, clean white linen provided soap,shampoo, face washer,tea coffee making facilities Aircon TV.
