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

We booked this motel on line for a two night stay,on arrival the appearance is not really startling,however the book in process was good , the room was clean ,it had been updated as much as the building would allow. 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

Don't be fooled by the outside of this place.....the rooms are fresh and the position to die for! Right on the strand with a popular hotel close by, plenty of places to eat, a supermarket, doctors, dentists and within walking didstance to town, this place is tops. I have stayed here many times and will always stay when I'm in... More

Stayed here for a few nights in Dec '13 for family occasion, great location, friendly, helpful owners,. Reminded us of holidays when we were kids at the bach at Foxton Beach NZ. Planning another holiday next year will definitely be coming back to stay at The Strand.

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
