We were getting tired and decided to stay here on the way home. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the managers also friendly. Shops etc are only a short drive away. The room tarriff also included breakfast with a choice of either poached or scrambled eggs on toast. We had the poached eggs and it satisfied our needs.... More

The good things about this motel are : it was clean, the bed was reasonable and air con worked well My experience started with an online enquiry which took nearly 24 hrs to be responded to. The owners had been part of an article in the local paper saying how bad business was, one would think that they would attend... More

If you had a team playing at the Murray Sports Complex Townsville, I recommend staying at the Spanish Lace Motor Inn. It is the closest motel to the sports grounds and a very pleasant walk across the bridge. It is a safe walk that goes under the main road. Tim was very helpful with our needs, allowing us access to... More

It was a pleasure having the Group from Redlands, and we did not mind you taking over the Motel for five days. Redlands have stayed with us in the past and it was also a pleasurable experience for both parties. We are the closest Motel to Murray Sports Grounds and as we have the largest Family rooms in Townsville we... More

For the first three nights all was quite by 10pm so I expected the same on the night you were there. I even asked an older lady of the group to keep... More

We made a stop off on the way to Cairns from Brisbane and after doing the motel crawl and looking at a few other higher priced motels(that clearly weren't worth the price). We came upon Spanish lace we asked about the price at the front desk and the manager was very nice, helpful and she had beautiful birds. For the... More
