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 :)
