Spent a couple of nights here last month and found it to be great value for money. The room was clean and comfortable with a good sized bathroom. The furnishings are older but this is reflected in the price. The staff were really helpful with any questions and problems we had during our stay. Only thing which was a little... More

The Raintree Motel was great value, especially as I recently stayed for five weeks and got a great weekly rate while my wife was in hospital. Ben and Melissa made me feel at home and were extremely helpful. The room was comfortable, very clean and serviced daily. Tasty breakfast came early each day. The pool and tropical covered relaxation area,... More

I decided to give the Raintree another go (and I didn't take up the offer of the free room). I arrived in Townsville earlier and contacted the motel to see if I could check-in earlier, no problem. The welcome was friendly, the room was clean (and the ceiling was intact...lol) and the external areas are well maintained. The motel is... More

The Raintree looks like a lot of other motels , the rooms are your average hotel room with ensuite, all the normal conveniences such as coffee making a microwave and fridge, the fresh milk was a rare touch. The Raintree however was a bit more, It was no problem for a colleague to book in for me and get my... More

As it was getting late we decided to stay in Townsville and complete the trip home in the morning. The room was clean enough but upon further inspection I found that the ceiling must have caved in at some stage as there as a piece of gyprock screwed over the hole. There were also some large cracks around the same... More

I do appoligise for the repair job on the roof, but we were in the middle of getting a new roof on the Motel at the time, and one of the workers fell through the roof. The Company putting the roof on just covered the hole. The guests didn't book in till late and this was our last room available... More

We stayed for one night on a stopover on the way to cairns. Stayed in a double room for $104. It was only a short stay but this place did the job fine. Room was clean and a good size. The reception was closed when we arrived at about 9pm but there were instructions telling us where the key was.... More

I had booked from home weeks before I travelled, and was given a discount for a longish stay (10 days). Taxi from the airport cost $22 (about 15 minutes). Motel is a long way from the centre of town if you don't have your own transport, and the bus service in Townsville is pretty awful on Sundays although adequate during... More
