Bowen Arrow Motel
Ranked #4 of 5 Bowen B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 January 2018 via mobile

My family & I stayed for one night, last minute, & to be honest we were all a little nervous staying in a motel right on the highway... we were pleasantly surprised!!

We took up 4 rooms, everyone agreed that they were very clean, although noticeably old, they were maintained. The outside of the site has obviously had a small facelift, lick of paint & some landscaping, so it looks fresher. The bathroom is very small, but really no different to a hotel in a city that’s you’d pay $200+ a night.
I’d give the shower a 4 out of 10 - not good coverage, wouldn’t try washing long hair under it.

If you’re a light sleeper, you will most definitely wake during the night, the trucks sound as though they’re coming straight through the room! The pillows aren’t great either, so if it’s an option, bring your own.

The great thing is this place also serve meals - we didn’t have one, but that’s extremely convenient!

This is also located just near a road house, so any snacks are just a skip away.

Bowen Arrow Motel is perfectly situated halfway between Rockhampton and Cairns. Great place to stay! Really clean and comfortable! The service is excellent. Melissa really makes you feel welcome and the Motel is going from strength to strength under her management.

We stayed here 18 months ago and the place has gone downhill since. Yes, the rooms are big but ours had broken and loose floor tiles and mould all over the wet areas.
We had to go to the office 3 times just to pay the account - the managers wife could not use the EFTPOS machine and there was no cash for change nor a receipt book in the office. This was our last stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for a beach view.

The staff were amazing and so helpful. For a motel, the room was pretty big, we fit a family of six in there. It was clean, tidy and I didn't have a fear of unclean sheets. Also, there is access to a pool.

Very nice clean and tidy room, well presented, nothing too flash but very nice indeed.
Priced appropriately for the style of accommodation that it is.

Would definitely stay at this place again.
The fellow at reception was very nice, helpful and up for a chat.
