The motel manager/owner was very helpful and friendly. The place itself was quite basic but very clean and the beds were really comfortable, we all had a really good night's sleep. A 10 min drive from the beachfront, set along a row of other motels. Recommended.

Great laid back atmosphere at this motel. Nothing was a problem. Owners were in the process of repairing the damaged foyer floor and it seemed a very busy time - but they still kept their sense of humour. We were there on the V* weekend and a Bbq was organised by the pool - felt just like home and met... More

It would be extremely advantageous for the proprietors to number the parking spaces to correspond with room numbers. My husband and I attended a wedding reception and when we returned to the motel at 11.00pm we were unable to park in our car park outside our room as some other person had parked there. We were very annoyed that other... More

Thank you for your review Elizabeth. There are no specific parks for any rooms due to there being 2 storeys and unfortunately guests visitors may park on the premises which does make it difficult for us to control, glad we could help by giving you ours. We apologise for the children playing loudly. This is not a common occurrence, however... More

Motel was perfect for my stay during the V8 Townsville races. Other motels close to the town and track put their prices up ridiculously. The Banjo Paterson has great hosts who understand the needs of the guests and provide great advice on where and how to get around. Buses to the race were 50 metres away and shops up the... More

Our stay at the Banjo Paterson was enjoyable and we loved the friendly service and smiling Louie and Chrissy. The rooms were clean and it's good to see a bail of hay going to the needy farmers due to our stay. Will go back next time we're in Townsville to see the footy, loved our stay. PS, Louie can cook...

This place is ok. There is nothing special about it but nothing terrible either. It's fine for an overnight stay. Rooms and bedding clean. Few minutes walk to supermarket and places to eat. I would stay there again.

Passing through on way to Cairns. Staff very helpful and accommodating. Room was adequate, good pillows and clean. Good shower. Meals in their restaurant were good but also in walking distance to alternatives.
