This property is past its heyday but has a lot of charm. The room was clean, comfortable and had all the facilities necessary. Not being on the ground floor meant having to lug my suitcase up 2 flights of stairs but what the heck! It has a tiny pool suitable mainly for children. There is a restaurant but I didn't... More

We had a room with queen and single. Room was clean, beds comfy and linen clean. Shower room clean and ok. Aircon was efficient. I can't rave about the place, but it was certainly ok. Free wifi was only available in a public area which was not aircon and was steamy hot, so not really useable. Our room was on... More

It great to stay over here! Staff is very friendly is happy to give you some do's in and around Townsville. I wish to have stayed longer as everything was there what I needed for my stay, a small fridge big enough to store some drinks, in the room where some glasses to put the drinks in I missed some...

Stayed at Yongala Lodge for the second time (last time in February 2015) and happy with both of our stays. It is budget accommodation and you pay for what you get. In February we had a 2 bedroom apartment on first floor and this time we were in a 1 bedroom ground floor apartment. Both times the rooms have been... More

The original hotel is wooden built and is one of the oldest buildings in Townsville complete with standard Aussie veranda, really nice to look at. The more modern rooms behind are spacious and have all that's needed for an overnight stop. We received a warm welcome and a very good price. Breakfast is available, on the veranda, basic but adequate.... More

The lodge is in a great position to the Strand. It was quiet and the rooms have everything you need. The staff were really friendly and accommodating. There is also a nice pool and off the street parking. The lodge is very reasonably priced and I would definitely stay again when I am next in Townsville.

Great location near the beach. We had been given 3 rooms all on 3rd level originally (lots of stairs) but kindly the lady on duty (dont think she was the owner?) let one of our families stay on the ground floor as one of us had injured her foot rather badly. So thank you so much for that. The rooms... More

Very helpful staff. Obviously recently refurbished. We had to walk up lots and lots of stairs though, wouldn't do if you had dodgy knees. The bed was comfy and it was quiet. The GPS got us completely lost and the staff assisted us to find where we needed to be
