Great location. Manager tries hard to please. BBQ dirty and then ran out of gas. Manger gave us his own bottle. Wifi only on front varander. Rooms clean and well equipped. Good parking. Would return. Very near the sea.

Booked through Booking.Com for a week stay at Yongala Lodge we booked the Deluxe Family Room as my family had come up from South Australia & Townsville was booked out due to the V8's. Arriving late that night I advised the Managers whom are Husband & Wife that my parents who are in their 70's will be arriving later as... More

I stayed here in august with 3 friends, my only complaint would be the beds weren't very comfortable but besides that could not fault the service or the rooms, which have all been recently renovated. Very good location just off the strand.

Great place close to The Strand and city - wonderful service and clean, well-maintained unit. I have never commented on a bathmat as a feature before, but this was the best one I have ever had in any accommodation, being so thick and soft, hence didn't end up wet and bedraggled after first shower. While quite livable and comfortable, I... More

Stayed for 5 nights in a 1-bedroom apartment. The owners are friendly & helpful and the rooms are very well maintained & clean. The complex is in a convenient central location, close to the water play park, Strand and cafes. Offstreet parking was handy too. However, compared to other places we've stayed in Townsville in a similar location & similar... More

Neat and tidy remake of an old standby. Clean rooms, good sheets and towels, sparkling little pool. Location A1 on the Strand. Even so, quiet and tucked away. No pretensions, but all done very well. Having had a very average dining experience elsewhere, the sooner the owners re-open the restaurant on the verandahs of the old lodge the better for... More

This place looks great from the outside being a lovely timber building well over 100 years old. Great welcome from the hosts who are super friendly. The accommodation at the back is very standard motel look from the outside, but don't let that fool you. The place is awesome inside and has been redecorated to the highest standard, sparkling white... More

We spent 2 nights at Yongala Lodge last week. The friendly cheerful manner of the Manager was just what we needed after a delayed flight and having arrived later than planned. Our room was spotless and recently refurbished. Just located off The Strand with plenty of off-street parking.
