Stayed in a 2 bedroom ocean view villa facing Hinchinbrook Island. Initially it was very hot but aircon soon kicked in. Has the most glorious views from the veranda which is shaded in the afternoon. The villas are fully self contained and beautifully decorated, comfy beds and big modern bathrooms. Free parking close to door. Huge lounge/kitchen/dining area, very high...

One night stay in motel accomodation in an upstairs unit. Basic accomodation but clean, bright and airy. Ocean view. No microwave but tea and coffee facilities and small bar fridge. The Downstairs restaurant is a relaxing spot to have drinks in the afternoon. It has great view looking out to Hinchinbrook Island. Stay on for dinner (you may need to...

It was only a one-night, impromptu stay which we were lucky to get as it was the last room left in the motel.. Well appointed room, comfortable beds, beautiful outlook onto the beach and ocean. Friendly, helpful staff. Enjoyable meals. No telephone with which to contact reception or for room service - we actually needed to go to the restaurant...

The Beachcomber has a mix of accommodation: caravan sites, self contained units and motel rooms. The motel rooms are clean and comfortable, but basic. The motel units do overlook the Hinchinbrook Channel, which is very pleasant. The restaurant serves some of the best food in town. If you intend to break you journey in Cardwell, or need to stay in...

Great stop over, amazing views of Hitchinbrook island. Literally on the waterfront, we had a fab walk along the deserted esplanade on a balmy evening with a storm brewing. Very friendly staff. Ate in the restaurant, good food, reasonable price. Really good stop over.

Parked a caravan here for two weeks. Smallish sites but very close to spectacular beach. Excellent bar/restaurant attached to motel /caravan park. Cardwell is a great base to explore Nth Qld and this park is a great place to stay. Close to shops, pet friendly, good fishing.......(yawn).

Yes you pay a little extra for the deluxe rooms and some times on a "road trip" it is hard to justify that bit extra , however the room is very spacious and clean with micro oven, toaster on request , good air con. and very quite.

We stayed in the caravan park but the complex also includes a motel and restaurant. With a bit more effort this could be a very good park. The location is excellent across from the water and near shops and cafes etc. The amenities are OK but could be improved e.g. 2 of 3 cold water taps in the basins of...

Nice clean affordable accommodation incl ocean view. BUT, the seafood tower was awesome and worth the additional overnight stay. Don, Farah and other restaurant staff on the night were very helpful and friendly. Love the happy hour concept.
