“Basic”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

Stayed here recently after a drive to Karumba to see the sunset. Other than a swift response to an inquiry about vacancies (we were the only people there) there was little contact with owners. Very disappointing when the owners don't take the time to even welcome you or say good morning and with no one else staying there it was rather uninviting. Accommodation is basic, we paid $100 night. Our unit had one small double bed with bunks. Small very basic kitchenette so if you plan on staying more than a night take your own utensils and extra towels, stove was rusted so we didn't attempt to use. It did have a medium size fridge which was a bonus. I would have scored this an average but when the owners don't even acknowledge your presence it didn't deserve this visit. Good location opposite the beach. Walk over to the tavern for sunset or take your own drinks and sit along the Esplanade.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2011

We stayed here for 3months back in 2001 and the owners of this place couldn't be more accommodating. Very comfortable cabins, clean and well presented.
Fishing is amazing, sunsets to die for.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2008

Set in peaceful tropical gardens a block back from the beach, this venerable motel has presumably served generations of fisherfolk holiday-makers in their quest for barramundi and other sea creatures. Our room was spacious, clean, surrounded by lush vegetation, reasonably priced ($78), and newly painted but undeniably not new. The owners are friendly, live on-site, and you are adjacent to Ash´s restaurant (fabulous fish & chips) and the Sunset Tavern (views over the Gulf from the terrace). Karumba is a welcome oasis of comfort after 100´s of km of Gulf Savannah.

  • Liked — the veranda and vegetation, fish & chips in Ash´s, the ambience, the nearby beach views
  • Disliked — watch out for the mosquitos
