Great stop for the night, room had an awesome view of the water and island. Clean and tidy room and complex. Walking distance to restaurants and pub. Also excellent service from the owners who were very knowledgeable of the North Qld area and suggested places to see.

Stayed in one of the basic small rooms, I was expecting much worst but was surprised by how nice & tidy the room was. Cleaning was on point. Bathroom looked newly renovated. Close to the beach & Janet was very lovely. Small critics would be very small TV, towels quite rough. Not the hotels fault but not a lot of dinner options when we came into town at about 8pm, would recommend being a lot earlier.

Thank you so very much Steve, you are amazing. Not only did you wait up for me to arrive. You helped me carry luggage in, very late at night. You then rang to ensure I got off to a safe start after leaving very early. Very much appreciated. You motel was immaculately clean and the service outstanding!!! Being in "the industry" i really valued my experience and have sung your praises to all. THANK YOU

We got locked out of our motel and rang this poor man at 11pm he went out of his way to help us and gave us a room at short notice, asking if we needed anything else, so kind. The room was lovely and very clean the bed was comfortable and a lovely sea view from the balcony. Highly recommend, lovely hospitality makes all the difference to a pleasant experience, so grateful!

We were travelling North and had an overnight stay that was so great we had to stay 3 more nights on our way back. The studio unit was spacious, super clean equipped with all kitchen tools even a hot plate! The owners Janet and Steve were what made it a standout. They were friendly, full of local information and hosted afternoon get together with views of sunset reflecting off Hinchenbrook Island.
