This time last week, I checked out after a five night stay at the Port Denison Motor Inn. Being a former local, I generally stay with family, but couldn't this time so chose the Motor Inn because it was close to family. Right from the time I booked months earlier, what struck me the most was the good customer service...

We just loved having a former Bowen resident staying with us. Bowen shines just as beautifully as it did many years ago when our guest grew up here. The beaches still beckon... It is lovely to hear they felt so welcome as we try to make all guests feel we value their custom and hope they will return.

Highly recommended, Managers are extremely friendly, grounds and rooms are presented beautifully, walking distance to the famous Grand View Hotel. We stayed here in December 2016 and again in January 2017, would stay here again if we were to travel to Bowen again.

My second time here and I like it. Staff are helpful and friendly and the location is good. I recommend it. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a kitchen and utensils. The beach is nice but if you want to swim I recommend Horseshoe Bay.

My 2 night stay was lovely in this clean and comfortable beach side unit. Close to pubs, cafes and to the city centre but nice and quiet. A big IGA only 2 streets away. NB air con only in the bedroom.

The apartments are modem with a Lounge/dinning room (toaster but no cooking facilities) and separate bedroom. I spent several months there and used the lounge as my office. The onsite manager was very helpful and treaded you like a member of the family. While there is no onsite restaurant, you can charge back to your room. (The Grand hotel is...

We also have a Weber BBQ in the communal area. Next time you stay with us, I will give you a run thru the kitchenette's facilities or...

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...
