Booked 2 rooms for our family, the guy at checkin was ride from the moment we entered. Rooms booked together yet we were separated at other ends of the venue. We were trying to check in at 3.30 but neither rooms were ready. The ‘manager’ would not give us a time as to when the rooms would be ready nor would accommodate us to have the 2 rooms next to ones another. He told me to piss off and ignored me. Most unhelpful and rudest guy ever. Would recommend calling ahead to ensure your room is ready. Mother with 4 kids under 8 unhelped.

This hotel doesn't make much of an impression visually when you arrive, however for the price, the rooms are fine. Beds were good and sheets good quality - air con worked and it was quiet at night. However, the TV's don't work (the signal is interfered with by electrical appliances) - the cleaner advised us that it happens with all the TVs in every room.

We booked this motel because we had read good reviews about the place and knew it was dog friendly. On arrival, the manager did not know which room was ours and had to ask the cleaner which room was ready. We were given the key and I asked about filling out any paperwork, and was told they would sort it out later. Never happened, so no Covid 19 tracking, which I thought was mandatory. The room was as expected for a per friendly motel, however the TV had no reception. When we informed management, their reply was "its Cardwell, we are remote ". We had stayed at 2 other motels in Cardwell previously and no problems with reception. Tried to go to the bar for a drink and book a table at the restaurant for dinner to be denied entry, as they are only catering for the Road Workers staying there. We were not informed of that when we booked. Finally, went to have showers and no hot water. We didn't bother mentioning this to management as it was already evident that overnight guests aren't a priority. For the price of $135 a night for a basic room, this place really needs improvement.

A unhappy guest always tries to find as much as they can to complain to make a point . We will do our best to address your issues . 1. The manager did not know your room as you had a pet and because we were booked fully your pet friendly room may not have been free at the time. 2. No paperwork is required in the hotel as your details are on file recording date name time and contact number. 3 The Restaurant was booked out to a construction company ,we were unable to cater for guests as we are limited due to covid but there were many eateries within the area. We do not inform guests when they book re the restaurant status I am sorry. 3. When we are full to capacity the hot water runs out but it is gas and quickly reheats .It does not cope when everone showers within same times. 4. Televisions in Cardwell are satelite reception and sometimes reception fails when cloud covers .Normally like the other motels you stayed at in Cardwell all our 40 tvs work fine but We will re address this issue to see again if this can be improved upon bad weather. 5. Your fee includes a $25 pet fee to pay staff extra to spend extra time sanitizing the room. We will strive for a 5 star Service as you expect but booking a 3 star venue???? Hope to see you again!

Its essentially your run of the mill motel, but, the rooms appear recently renovated and so its a cut above the norm, presenting excellent value. Bed was comfortable, bathroom small but serviceable, I would choose this again if in the area

Wow what a suprise! A few friends and myself were looking for a cheap place to lay our heads before heading to Hinchinbrook for a few days and after arriving we were blown away with how nice, clean and fresh the rooms were down to the small decor it was all wonderful! Awesome pool area and restaraunt/bar on site as well as BBQ area and washing facilities for guests. Massive shout out to Rob!! Extremely helpful, friendly and made us feel so at home! Staff were all lovely and helpful. This motel is so great and for the price it was such a great suprise!
