I travel a lot for both work and pleasure so I always choose to stay in places that become like a home away from home. The Summit is exactly that sort of place. Janine and Allan are warm and welcoming people who can't do enough for you. Both have ready smiles, great Australian senses of humour and loads of local... More

A great location on top of Townsville, still very close to the centre. Thank you to the very friendly owners, Al and Jeannene for their warm hospitality. Spent most of our time by the pool or in our comfortable room, 5 star service!

This is a fantastic place to stay! We were on our way to Cairns and needed a stop over, Al and Jeannene were most accommodating. Nothing was to much trouble. The room was lovely, clean and comfortable with aircon a big bonus in summer. The pool, bbq area all keep clean and tidy. The view of the mountain lit up... More

Clean comfortable terrific location very safe perched high on the hill. Ample space and friendly hospitality. Very happy with the quality of accommodation and value for money. Only. Downside was hearing a noisy guest outside our room departing early but no big deal

Six of us (3 couples) arrived at 8:30 pm (or so) on a Sunday. Allan was so welcoming! Knowing that we'd driven for a few hours, and that not too many places were open in town, he ordered pizzas for us, put them on our bill, and made us feel entirely welcome. Our rooms were clean, comfortable, amenities included. Wifi... More

We just checked in to the Summit Motel in Townsville. I booked this place based on other reviews on Trip Advisor and I am super happy! We arrived way before the normal check-in time in the hope that the room would be ready… I did not have high hopes as I have tried this before with other (expensive 5 star... More

Very clean and comfortable accommodation with welcoming friendly hosts. The motel has a pleasant pool which was great for the kids to cool off in after a day out. The location is excellent, a quick walk downhill to the beautiful Strand for dinner, drinks or ice creams. All round a good value motel room where we will return to and... More

We chose this place for a two night stay on the basis of trip advisor reviews and we were very pleased with the choice. We liked the position near the bottom of Castle Rock and not too far from the Strand. The motel garden is attractive, we chose a ground floor room because of heavy suitcases, the room was a... More

The Summit Motel was not new but looked in good condition and the people were welcoming. Our second floor room was very pleasant and spacious. There was security wire on the windows so we were able to have fresh air at night - a bonus for us. There was a large communal balcony so you could sit outside in the... More
