I recently enjoyed a week long holiday staying at the Shoredrive Motel. The unit was tastefully renovated and had everything I required which was clean and tidy. I particularly appreciated the quiet air conditioning unit, screened windows with security grill and ceiling fan. The bed was comfortable and environment was quiet despite being in a main road. The location was... More

We spent a long weekend at the Shoredrive on The Strand in Townsville. It has been newly renovated and is looking clean and fresh. Beds were comfy and it had everything we needed. The restaurant on site was very good too. It is a great position for all activities in Townsville.

Great location just out of the busy-ness of town with everything you could need just nearby. The rooms were really clean and comfortable, and the team were really friendly. We ate at the restaurant a few times and were impressed with the service and standard of food. We travelled with our toddler and it was a great location - lots... More

We have been to Townsville several times from Cloncurry and this is the first time we have been to Shoredrive. We found all the staff friendly, welcoming and always available to assist as needed. The room we had was clean and well presnted, particularly with a wonderful view of the sea. It is at the quieter end of the strand,... More

We came in from a cattle station for a 2 night stay. Overlooking the strand with our own personal balcony gave us all the privacy and seclusion we desired, but had us right there and feeling part of the hustle and bustle of Townsvilles beachlife - it was superb. At the Northern end of the Strand we found it much... More
