We only had 2 days here and wished we had more. Denise greeted us on arrival and gave us a choice of rooms, even though we had booked. The room was very clean and bright. Right on the Strand overlooking the waterfront and no traffic noise to worry about. Facing the beautiful waterfront. Washing facilites good.

As I didn't want too spend much on accomodation I chose to stay here. It was everything we expected. The Studio was small, with a very small balcony with a table and 2 chairs. everything worked and it was clean. The bed was comfortable . There is a large Supermarket and also cafes and take aways close by.

My mother in-law booked online from the UK based on the pictures on their website and its great location. The only part of the website that is accurate is its great location. We called at 6pm to say our flight had been delayed and we weren't sure how late we would now be arriving. We were assured that the front... More

Although a basic motel, it has Clean, comfortable rooms with the additional convenience of a microwave. Balcony or outside sitting area is very welcome too. Good wifi. Helpful motel managers. Excellent position opposite the sea. Supermarket close by plus the large Seaview Hotel for meals & bars. Definitely value for money and would recommend

We stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment, which was a bit old & funny, but very clean, spacious & comfortable & we were very happy. It's across the road from the beach & promenade, with a fabulous outlook over the bay. We'd sit outside at night at the little table outside our door & watch the world go by, which was... More

Arriving after dark in Townsville with no accommodation booked we took our chances with a place called the Strand Motel as it seemed it would be within our budget. Even though it was closed and after hours the friendly owner happily let us a room. Being dark we had no idea about our surrounds but we were having such a... More

Originally we were on our way to Cairns and only planned to stay one night. In the end we liked the strand motel and the owners that much that we changed plans and stayed for four nights. The owners are absolutely friendly, helpful and really caring. Our room had a nice sea view balcony, air conditioning, a small "kitchen" (refrigerator,... More

Bed was excellent there was no noise even though it is right on the Strand. In general the price was... More

This hotel doesnt look very good from the outside and even being shown to my room i was a bit worried what i was going to find inside. Its an old building and next to a vacant block which does it no favours. However it was cheap and I was only stopping one night and booked it online. Inside I... More

Me and two friends scored this gem on our trip to Townsville for a festival and some diving. It is not 5 star living but the owners are uber friendly, location could not be any better and the price for the three of us was very reasonable. Places to eat and drink are very close by as well as all... More
