Stayed here for one night on an overnight trip to townsville. Room cost just over $90. The receptionist was friendly and helpful on arrival. The room was old and outdated and cleanliness is very questionable as there is a horrible smell in the room. Our room backed onto a busy road. The shower is very small with shampoo and gell... More

We ate here Feb 14th. We didn't stay at the motel but it looked lovely. I had high hopes for this little gem. From all the pictures id seen it looked like the perfect romantic place for our special night. I was not disappointed! It exceeded all my expectations. They had a set menu for this particular night.

We usually stay at another motel when we travel to Townsville. Unfortunately they were remodelling and we chose to stay here on recommendation. The hosts were welcoming and we had a great chat, turns out they are from our home town. Parking is motel style out the front. We got a basic room at the front which backs onto a... More

I love staying here at the Ridgemont! The rooms are large and self contained! Although you don't get your own balcony, the little table outside your door is all you need to relax at the end of the day! The view out to Magnetic Island is breathtaking. The rooms are clean, and it's great value for money. The owners are... More

Stayed one night last minute and wanted somewhere cost effective. Very old and dated rooms. Not super clean. We were given a room next to the road - no views and loud from traffic. On the top of a VERY steep hill but walking distance down to restaurants etc. just have to bare the walk back - good exercise! Restaurant... More

Great value - clean, friendly, great views, handy location to The Strand, Castle Hill and not far out of CBD at all. Very quiet location despite close proximity to attractions. The proprietors are just lovely - very friendly and helpful. Food at the restaurant is very good and I loved dining with those views across to Magnetic Island. Stayed 3... More

No problem if you have a car but otherwise the motel's at the top of a steep hill. We had to ssk to have our room serviced though it was advertised as a serviced apartment. The advertised wifi wasnt available in the room.
