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.

We travelled from Darwin to Melb and this was easily the best place we stayed! We were very tired when we arrived with our 11 month son after a long day and we were feeling more than refreshed in the morning! Staff were friendly and helpful, great price, best views, clean and amazing rooms. Could not fault the stay. Thank... More

Basic motel room. Seemed clean and tidy. Literature states that room is serviced daily, but had to ask for things like toilet paper and coffee. There for 5 nights and no service. However the location is superb overlooking Magnetic island. Restaurant always had customers but we never tried so can't comment on quality of food. We were a bit concerned... More

We needed to overnight in Townsville and decided to try the Ridgemont due to the tiny price tag! So glad we did! The room was basic motel, but very neat and clean and with the bonus of a well stocked kitchenette! The big difference between this and similar standard motels is the view across the bay! Just gorgeous! I wish... More

Very pleasant stay for two nights, well run by the managers Mary and Kevin. The restaurant is open air situated overlooking Townsville and Magnetic Island and the sea very lovely and relaxing. Room comfortable, clean and quiet.
