Last week I urgently had to travel from Toowoomba to Townsville for a my elderly father's serious operation at the Townsville Base Hospital. Upon being recommended this motel by the hospital staff I immediately made a booking. The owner/manager Mal telephoned me immediately to confirm my travel arrangements and my checkin time. As I was going to be checking in... More

We stayed at this motel because it was convenient for where we needed to be. Its location is close to the Aitkenvale shopping centres and the hospital. Other than the local hotel there is no where else to stay in this area. The motel is very clean and had the basic necessities. While there is nothing really to complain about... More

Thank you Laurie for taking the time to write your review. In reply to your comments and advice to other travellers we agree that we do not have a restaurant or offer meals. When all the fast food cafes and tavern opened close by and within easy walking distance it was not viable to run a restaurant any more. There... More

Recently had a few nights stay here at the cedar lodge motel. Our visit was for a family member in hospital. The room was very clean and comfortable. Good happy friendly service. Close to everything and bus stop not to far from the front of the motel which goes to the uni and hospital. Nice place to stay.

The Cedar Lodge is a clean, comfortable and convenient place to stay in Townsville. Its central location is helpful to access tourist, business, education and health facilities in the area. It is right on the main bus routes and close to shopping, the university and the hospital. Its rooms are quiet and relaxing; big enough for an extended stay, but... More

I had 5 nights here while taking a course at James Cook Uni. It is very much as described in other reviews. Clean, quiet, very adequate accommodation. The free internet is very much appreciated and works well. The location is great for hospital and uni with shops nearby. Friendly staff too.
