Fantastic views and fantastic spot. Right in the thick of it. Great Aircon and Wifi. We had a family of 5 and couldn't book the accommodation below so had to pay extra to upgrade. The motel took 10% off which was very good of them. The room was amazing with great views two rooms and fully self contained. BBQ x...

Central location. Great waterfront views and could be improved if shrubs trimmed. Large self contained rooms with noisy aircons and wobbling noisy fans. Rooms not worth the price we paid. Requires maintenance. Spiders on room ceiling corners and shower tiles were mouldy. Lots of huge mosquitos on the front porch so couldn't leave the bedroom door open. Coils were provided...

I've stayed here quite a number of times for work. Stayed in many of the rooms. Service is fantastic. Price is fantastic for what you get. Views are fantastic. The negative is that the building and the rooms are old. Further, Lack of Foxtel and ongoing wifi is disappointing. Would I return.... yes absolutely.

The motel room we had was up the back on the hill, which afforded great views over the Endeavour River. It is an easy Walk to the clubs and pubs in Cooktown. The staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed 2 nights there

We drove from Cairns to Coooktown the day after Boxing Day and arrived around 3 in the afternoon. The motel was shut - as was everything else in Cooktown, so I called the night manager's number and someone came out to meet us. He quickly unlocked the office and let us in. We were offered a choice of 3 types...

Visited the Seaview in August with my husband and brother in law. We booked our room very last minute, but wasn't at all disappointed. The room itself was spacious and very clean. The wifi was highly appreciated (my husband and I were over from the UK) so we managed to Skype family back home with no problems. Fabulous views from...
