Good people, really try their best to please, service is great and robust! Restaurant was also honest faire at reasonable pricing. Rooms were comfortable, free 200mb wifi was gratious although my newly acquired wifi booster had to be brought into play to make the reception better. Beds were nice and firm, crisp bedding, decent airconditioning and large fluffy white towels... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with a group of 9 and can only recommend it. The owners are very helpful and friendly and may give you a discount if you ask for it. The Motel is in a very convenient location, as from Bowen Road it is easy to travel to the places you want to see in Townsville

Stayed here a couple of times over the years and couldn't fault this place. The staff are amazing and bend over backwards to accommodate you, the rooms are clean and fresh and it's close to shops and takeaway places. Pick here for your next stay!!

The combination of location, pricing, great hosts, and more than adequate room appointment made my 4 day stay bearable. The host could not do enough. Thank you I appreciate your assistance. I will be back.
