I have stayed here as a single, with my husband and also as a family numerous times over the last few years. The rooms are minimal and in need of updating but the prices and location are excellent and these are things you can overlook. The rooms have always been clean but unfortunately on our last visit the family room... More

I has a fantastic buffet breakfast here yesterday. The staff were friendly and had smiles on their faces. I asked the chef if he could cook my eggs the way I like and it was no trouble at all for him. Lots of choices, juice, coffee, cereals, fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, sausages, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, baked beans, hash browns, pancakes... More

This was my first trip to Townsville and Hotel Allen was recommended by family and is located in a relatively trendy area...that's where the charm ended! Initial customer service at check-in was terrific - shame she wasn't present for the rest of the stay. Dead cockroach behind the door of the room, main light didn't work, black stain around toilet...

I stayed here for three nights in late January 2015, and I was very pleasantly surprised. The prices were very reasonable for two adults, and on weekends this even extends to include the smorgasbord hot breakfast offered in the lounge bar. These breakfasts alone retail at $14.95 per head, so nearly $30 worth of breakfast for two people is inclusive... More
