Bluewater Harbour Motel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 November 2012

We stayed at the Bluewater Harbour, as part of the arrangements for our trip and what a nice susprise! Absolutely spotless room with everything and more! Specially the coffee percolator in our room! It was a very nice touch in a city where everything seems to close at midday on Saturdays. It is centrally located and one can walk to downtown Bowen easily! Next morning we had an outstanding breakfast cooked by the owners. Really, a great experience!

As part of our road trip to see the eclipse, we stayed at the blue harbour. Service was outstanding, we arrived late, but our room was easy to find and so was the key! We had a great recommendation for dinner at the grand view hotel, our room was spacious and very clean. Great towels, great breakfast.

Will stay again.

Close to town and after staying in so many drab motels, was a great change of scene.
Friendly staff go the extra bit to make things easy, even had mini chocolates waiting on the beds.
Spacious rooms seem recently renovated.
The invoice was confusing, and on asking for them to clarify it, I was emailed another in the format I had asked for.
Bathrooms come with the usual soaps/shampoos.conditioner plus three gift packs containing an emergency sewing kit, grooming kit and shower cap to make things easier.

What a lovely peaceful place to stay in Bowen. Facilitys were great. Accommodation was very clean and modern and beds were very comfortable. Somewhere to park the boat and a lovely family friendly pool. Staff couldnt do enough to please us - even offered us a late check out before we had a chance to ask (we were part taking in a loval early morning event - and staff were able to anticiapte our needs). We would strongly recommend Bluewater Harbour Motel to any singles or families as our stay was pleasant, relaxing and most enjoyable. We will be back again next year!!

Safe undercover parking, spotlessly clean and comfortable unit with toaster, microwave and coffee-making facilities. Comfortable beds and quiet surroundings. Staff friendly and very helpful. Unfortunately this review has to be 200 characters. I find this unnecessary and tedious.

This is a lovely new one bedroom apartment, comfortably furnished. I would be happy to stay here again, now I know where to go! I arrived after dark to be told to drive a few blocks to an apartment block, even though I had pre-booked a 2 bedroom place at the motel. When I booked, the only thing I asked for was 2 bedrooms, so was not pleased to arrive at the substitute apartment to find there was only 1 bedroom - there was another room but the door was locked with a master key not available that night. The young receptionist kindly offered a second apartment at no cost, but I had to drive back to the motel to collect another set of keys. Once finally settled, all else was good.
