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

We stayed here for one night during the school holidays on our way to Cairns. The owners were very friendly and helpful giving us directions to a few places we wanted to see in the short time we were there. We had inter-connecting rooms, each room sleeping four, which gave us more than enough space. We all slept well. Would... More

Used Tripadvisor to select this motel for a one night stay in Townsville. It was easy to find and is located near the CBD and the Esplanade. In comparison with others in this price range in Townsville I rate it highly simply because of its location. It's an easy 15 minute walk downhill to the restaurants on The Esplanade but... More

We arrived in Townsville with no booking. Pulled into Summit and thought it was closed as it was late 8.30ish. As we backed out we saw a man with a dog, assumed owner and asked about rooms. This man was not the owner but told us reception was still open. We checked in and 'yeah' a lovely clean and very... More

The Summit is a wonderfully family run happy motel to stay at. Jeannene and Allan were such welcoming hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. We stayed at the Motel with our poodle who played well with the Motel pooch named Russell. The service was great, the rooms very clean and spacious with an adjoining outdoor area for our... More
