Service is wonderful and friendly. Great location for the rest of Bowen. Adjoining rooms opened for families so very convenient. Air conditioned. Pool was refreshing at night. Great for families. Can't recommend enough.

Stayed overnight, our room was the garden setting and our room was of good standard. The welcome was warm and friendly, the room met our needs and we slept well in the comfortable bed. Information about things to do and where to eat was excellent. Would happily stay again.

We stayed here for one night and were very pleasantly surprised by the standard of this motel. Our welcome was very friendly, the room was of a very good size indeed and very nicely maintained. Towels were also nice and fluffy. The only issue that disappointed us after a long day's drive was that the restaurant wasn't open for dinner...

Stayed here last week was my fifth stay in 12 months and each time seems to be easier, more comfortable and great value. Awesome staff, comfy rooms and clean bathrooms with a terrific shower. Chocolates on the bed are a nice touch and the friendly welcome and goodbye ensure you'll be back. I don't have to stay here but choose...

Booked in here on our drive from Cairns to Brisbane. The service was excellent and the rooms are large and clean. After travelling most of the day it was very refreshing to book into a motel that had excellent meals on premise at a reasonable price. Would return and would recommend
