I stayed here on business for one night and I'll definitely stay again on my trips through Bowen. The managers were lovely and very helpful. The rooms are simple, clean and looked after. Just what you need on a business trip. The new bathrooms are modern and the rooms are styled well.

My family and I have stayed here on a number of occasions whilst travelling up and down the East coast. Run by two very friendly semi-retired couples, we have experienced great service under both sets of management (month on / month off rotation). Definitely in the family budget, rooms have everything you need (+ great water pressure showers to wash...

Stayed for 2 nights. Friendly and welcoming staff. Clean, spacious, comfortable rooms. Modern bathroom. A little distant from the centre of town or from other eating joints, but the restaurant does offer good meals.

Great place and a great price. Our family had to return to Bowen for unfortunate circumstances and Prue was very understanding and helpful when we asked for early check-in. I have always been drawn to the spectacular front of the lodge and i was not disappointed once inside either. Rooms were clean & tidy and the pool looked amazing even...

The Castle Motor Lodge provided a very comfortable 2 night stay for our family. The warm and welcoming greeting was appreciated after a long day of travelling in the car. A sparkling swimming pool provide welcome relief and entertainment. The bed and pillows were comfortable in the immaculately presented motel room (which was very very clean!). We thoroughly enjoyed a...

Stayed here for two nights recently. The room was scrupulously clean, beds were very comfortable and bathroom nice and modern. Our twin share had plenty of room and we also saw a double room (relatives were staying a few doors up from our room) and this was even more spacious and well laid out. Our booking included continental breakfast which...

Decided to stop here as we were getting tired driving. Had a great night chatting with the owners and discovering Bundaberg rum & ginger beer. Funny place with a history to it. Food and room was fine and good value for money.

If you are having a function would highly recommend coming here, we went to a wedding reception. It was a buffet, the food was excellent! the staff were very friendly and professional. Oh and did I mention how taste the food was. We did not stay at the motel, only because it was book out. Compliments to the chef, and...
