    Very friendly staff, nice spacious clean room. Excellent meal in the dining room made from fresh local ingredients. A real treat and highly recommend. Short walk to the harbour and Main Street. I would say this motel is one of the best in Bowen.

    Visited recently with my family including a young baby. Unfortunately the room needs a good clean with carpets staining your feet and the baby's arms from crawling due to dirt. Overall I'm not sure how this rates number one on TripAdvisor
