Went to Bowen for business. Ended up staying 2 nights! The owners were lovely and it was obvious they're intent is to make your stay stress free. The rooms and grounds were spotless. I had to comment on leaving on the cleanliness of the whole place. We had a sea view room, which was exactly as suggested. The room was...

I came to Bowen to check out the town for my retirement. I only stayed for one night but would have loved to stay longer. This is a nice, clean motel near the beach in a convenient location. What makes Port Denison special is the people that run the place. They are are fantastic! Friendly and helpful and always happy...

25 staff from our organisation stayed the night here. The staff were very accommodating and went out of their way to help us. The rooms were clean and had so much gear to make the stay comfortable. The breakfast basket was good.

When you have been driving all day, what you want when you arrive at a motel is to get a sunny open greeting. Anita and Craig were welcoming and helpful with some unusual requests we had. This motel is convenient to town and close to the beach. The room was spotless, fresh and with up to date decor.

This is a clean and spacious motel, formerly retirement-type accommodation. It's well suited for self catering, but the Grandview Hotel is a few minutes walk away and offers great meals. The motel's wifi system is archaic. It was most annoying that we could not connect to the internet during our stay. Our stay also coincided with the local fishing gala...

Thanks so much for your very kind review. Yes, we agree about the wifi. We are held up by the NBN which should be commissioned within the coming months. I did warn you about the Bowen Family Fishing Competition and that we had Shannon Noles performing live on stage at the Sound Shell on Front Beach on Saturday night. It...

Spotlessly clean, very friendly people, highly recommend . I rang through on the night and it was no trouble for them to wait for me to arrive. Lovely location and off street parking. Self contained unit.

Spent 1 night here during our Cairns to Brisbane road trip and would certainly go back again. Loved the fact that the rooms had their own kitchenettes as we were trying to self cater as much as possible to save money although the fridge was a little small. The bedroom is seperate from the living/kitchenette area and is airconditioned with...

Right opposite the front beach, with views to the bay, I was in a lovely fresh, modern unit in a nice bed, for 9 days. Lovely people, very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. It was incredible value at the price, having a separate bedroom and living room that was so clean it felt new. Whether for business or holidaying,...

This would be a good place to spend a week or so. I don't know if Bowen is the place to be but the motel would certainly be good. It is located close to the water.
