Wonderfully located with a husband/wife management team that must be the best in Queensland. We had a top floor room that was immaculate. Basic - but extremely well laid out and absolutely spotless. The grounds of the lodge were amazingly well kept and the overnight 'silence' was very much appreciated. The Lodge is only a very short walk to the... More

Nice, clean refurbished room. Stayed for 2 nights over Anzac weekend. Quiet. We we'rnt bothered by any revellers. Walking distance to beach & eateries. Reasonably priced. Manager was friendly. They have a restaurant, but we didn't eat at it this time. Will definitely stay again.

Staff and owners are very accommodating. The rooms are spacious and clean. The two room accommodation is a great place for families to stay, everything supplied to make you self sufficient. It is walking distance to supermarkets, shops, restaurants and is only a few metres to The Strand and the free water park. Wi Fi is available but only in... More

Lovely hotel right by the Strand with its own little pool. The owners were very friendly and helpful. This is a lovely building with a lot of original features and artefacts from the Yongala. The rooms were large and and there's a laundry on site.

We stayed one night in a one bedroom fully refurbished apartment. Big, clean and spacious. It was the new managers second day but they were still knowledgeable and helpful. Restaurant was closed for a refurb but this was not a problem. Great quiet but central location.

I actually wanted to review on booking.com , but because that site listed me as a No Show, I can't (more on that later...). Yongala is a nice, quiet, unpretentious place where everything works, and it's not outrageously expensive. It has only just changed ownership in the last week and the new owners, while still feeling their way, are eager... More

Best accommodation we had here, a Family room. A very pleasant people/staff. Seems that it's a old lodge but they have a great and comfortable rooms inside. They have a good value for accommodation. So far we like it!

We arrived quite late to our accommodation, and our booking made through booking.com somehow didn't show, even I had a printed booking confirmation. I went for a smoke outside while Sheryl and Graham, who were new to that business, sorted it out. After the smoke, they offered us an upgrade for inconveniences caused, even they didn't really cause us any.... More

Yongala lodge is a jewel amongst the strands varying accommodation. It has beautifully clean rooms, a historical street front, with modern facilities and amazing customer service. The staff here couldn't do enough to make my young family's stay more comfortable. We will be back in Townsville next week and we travel here often. This will be our first ok ace... More

Nice room in a very nice location. Looks old from the road, which was not a bad thing for us as we like that, but the rooms are modern and clean.. Very quiet spot despite being 100% occupied over NYE.. 30 seconds walk to the strand.. The only let down was that the restaurant was closed for renovations.. But other... More
