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!!

I stayed at here for 2 weeks and had the most wonderful time. The owners of this motel are very friendly and nothing seems to much trouble. The room I stayed in was very clean and had the most comfortable bed. I ate at there restaurant most nights as the meals are to die for. I would not hesitate to... More

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.

We stayed for 3 nights. Excellent stay overall & would go back if in Townsville again! We had a meal one night in their restaurant & that was excellent too. And with a great choice of wines (including a Penfold Grange if you're up for it!) And we had breakfast in our rooms in the mornings - also brill!

Emma & David were very welcoming, super helpful and great hosts. Only had 1 night, but felt completely at home. A few mozzies in the room no doubt due to all the rain from Cyclone Ita. No biggie - Thanks from Megan from the NT :)

We stayed at the Colonial Rose Motel for four nights as we were in Townsville for a couple of appointments. Emma and David were so welcoming and accommodating that it made it a pleasure to stay with them. The room was very clean, and the bed was super comfy. It is close to the hospital, and $12 -16 by taxi... More
