We had one night stay and found our room 12 to be very comfortable for four adults. Iain and Judy are very friendly people who provided us with a great dinner and breakfast all to our room. The only draw back was the very out of date air con which we could not use because it was SO VERY noisy.... More

Excellent place to stop, hot meal ordered along with a beer. Beautiful sitting on the veranda eating dinner. Pets loved it as well. Good cross flow of a breeze when you open both doors to the unit. The puppies were happy in the bathroom area and plenty of space around for a walk.

Was driving north from Ipswich to Cairns and late in the afternoon on the south side of Bowen I saw this motel on the left hand side of the highway. It looked neat & tidy so decided to pull in for the night. I was very lucky as I managed to nab the last room so I thought this place... More

A perfect place to stopover. View from our room was amazing, just across the road from the ocean & your own little outdoor setting where we had our homestyle meal delivered straight to us. (too tired to drive into the town) Lovely swimming pool. Bright & breezy room where your dog can have his/her own little inside area sectioned off... More
