The best BnB in Newell. Anne & Fernando excel in customer service, creating ambience and the pool is perfect, the entire experience exceeded our expectations. We're local Queenslanders and our first time to Newell Beach, it's a real find, next year with family we have booked Boonooloo Beach House on the beachfront. I highly recommend Newell Beach.

I've never stayed at a B&B before, so I was a little sceptical. Fortunately, Anne and Fernando were wonderful, warm and friendly hosts and their home was the perfect stop over on the way back to Cairns. Beautiful rooms and facilities. No details were missed here.

Fernando greeted us at the front Balinese entrance & proceeded to show us around their amazing house. Really quiet area. Shortwalk to an amazing beach. Short drive to Mossman for dinner. Overall great stay. Recommended

We had a wonderful stay at Newell Beach, we loved the location being away from the busy areas. We rented a car (which I would advise everyone to do if they are exploring North QLD) and were able to easily get to Port Douglas, the Daintree and other tours. The property is a 2 min walk to the beach where... More

This was the first place we stayed in Queensland, directly coming from Canada. It was an ideal introduction to the beautiful region and the hospitality of its people.
