This place is great. big rooms, very clean, great location - on the beach beside the Tavern. Good food in the tavern and across the road at Ash's. close to one of the boat ramps-easy pick up for sunset cruises..very happily go back

Apartments rather than motel rooms. Separate bed room separate bathroom, lounge and kitchen dining. Undercover car parking fans and air conditioning right on the Gulf of Carpentaria where the Norman river enters. With BBQ facilities overlooking the Gulf with comfortable seating and great views to watch the sun set over the water. Highly recommend for a stay in Karumba.

We chose this motel due to its location on the waterfront and being adjacent to Sunset Tavern where we wanted to have dinner. We only stayed one night but would have been happy to stay longer if our travel plans had allowed. The room was large with a separate bedroom. There were defined kitchen, dining and lounge areas. There was...

During a recent motorcycle tour to Far North Queensland (FNQ), I stayed two nights at the End of the Road Motel (13-15 April, 2016). I had booked 24 hours in advance and check-in was swift and friendly. My room, classified as 'twin apartment', was of generous size, including the bathroom, and very clean. However, there was a leaking air-conditioning unit...

...you shouldn't be bothered by the location of the barbeque facilites which are in front of the beachfront executive suites. And they are used frequently.... We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed the spacious and clean room and the friendly service. However, we missed some privacy in our outdoor sitting area because our suite was facing the barbeque and...

This is a wonderful part of the world and the family run motel is the perfect retreat. It has a great outlook and everything needed for a stop over or extended break. Plenty to do in Karumba, recommend beach walk and health walk into the township.

Ideal location on the shores of the Gulf of Carpentaria with tables and chairs overlooking the Gulf. Helpful friendly reception. Delicious prawns and excellent fish available nearby to eat while watching the sunset, pelicans, black kites and brogas. Rooms very pleasant and appropriate to the location.

Very good motel. the rooms are above average in size, not your standard rectangle room with tiny bathroom. Very large kitchen with all the things you need. Staff were great and friendly, check in easy. Great location with bbq and chairs out the back directly on the beach front.

We actually had this place recommended to us from the motel we stayed at in Mt Isa (Debbie from Fourth Street Motor Inn) where we stayed before the End of the Road. We are really glad we stayed there for two nights. Check in was very good and we spoke with Lyn and Natasha. They gave us a good rundown...
