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

Would recommend this accommodation if you are not into flash and expensive motels. The Strand is clean and tidy, great bed. Very helpful owner who offers you a unit upstairs with a view or downstairs. This place is in a great location, shops and eating places just a very short walk away. Beach is just across the road. The price... More

I stayed 5 nights here. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The owner was the most friendly, helpful and accommodating host I've ever met. The rooms were exceptionally clean, the beds very comfortable and the location is brilliant. I will definitely be staying here next time I'm in Townsville.

We stayed here 1 night. We found it to be Clean, Compact & Conveniently located. Would stay here again. The owner was very friendly and accomodating, offering us a strand view room or a quiet room at the back. Was also helpful with directions when we were leaving

Had a couple night stay on the strand to meet friends for a weekend of socialising. Right across from the beach it is a great place to wake up. Staff are friendly and easy going,the rooms are basic and really dated but the location is absolutly awesome.
