I've stayed here quite a number of times for work. Stayed in many of the rooms. Service is fantastic. Price is fantastic for what you get. Views are fantastic. The negative is that the building and the rooms are old. Further, Lack of Foxtel and ongoing wifi is disappointing. Would I return.... yes absolutely.

The motel room we had was up the back on the hill, which afforded great views over the Endeavour River. It is an easy Walk to the clubs and pubs in Cooktown. The staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed 2 nights there

We drove from Cairns to Coooktown the day after Boxing Day and arrived around 3 in the afternoon. The motel was shut - as was everything else in Cooktown, so I called the night manager's number and someone came out to meet us. He quickly unlocked the office and let us in. We were offered a choice of 3 types...

Visited the Seaview in August with my husband and brother in law. We booked our room very last minute, but wasn't at all disappointed. The room itself was spacious and very clean. The wifi was highly appreciated (my husband and I were over from the UK) so we managed to Skype family back home with no problems. Fabulous views from...

The Seaview Motel is situated at the end of Charlotte Street, with a beautiful view of the Boats in the Endeavour Estuary, and a clear view of the Sunsets and Sunrise (if you are up early enough) Nice Garden, comfortable beds. Bathrooms could be updated but very clean and it was suitable for our 1 night stay. Would recommend this...

Seaview provides a wonderful overview of the Endeavour River Estuary, and offers many types of accom. This time we stayed in a 2 bedroom upstairs/downstairs apartment. It was very well equipped, and the beds were comfortable. Off street parking is somewhat restricted.

This hotel is in a great position with great views down over the Endeavour River. However the interior of our room was very tired and drab, with a brown bedspread , a flimsy shower curtain and an airconditioner ( essential) in the bathroom , which was supposed to flow into the bedroom as well ( but did not do so...
