Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room suited our requirements for one night stay. Bay is just a short walk across the highway. Not a swimming location as it it mainly mangrove type beach. Good for walking the dog. Would recommend for people with pet.

We had one night stay and found our room 12 to be very comfortable for four adults. Iain and Judy are very friendly people who provided us with a great dinner and breakfast all to our room. The only draw back was the very out of date air con which we could not use because it was SO VERY noisy....

We stayed there for a night on travels to Dicky Beach from Cairns. The people that own the motel are absolutely awesome.Nothing was too hard. The rooms where comfortable and great reception on the TV. Plus a beautiful veiw of the bay whilst you ate a nice T-bone.
