I travel to Townsville regularly and always stay at the Summit. They have great service, a conference room, and are always accommodating- even leaving a couple of cold beers in the fridge for when I turn up late at night! The wifi is great, views are amazing and the location is central and only a 10 minute walk to the... More

This little gem served as a great pit stop on our way from Rockhampton to Atherton Tablelands (home). The rate was cheap and cheery, but it certainly didn't mean that we were staying in sub standard accommodation. The room was large and airy. The beds (1 x queeen and 1 x single) were super comfortable. The aircon cool and crisp... More

This motel is fantastic value for money. We travel to Townsville regularly on Business and we have tried many motels. The Summit is in a great location for us being so close to the Strands restaurants and driving down the other side of the hill you are a minute away from the Cowboys Leagues Club. The owners here are new... More

We were on a driving trip from Port Douglas to Brisbane and decided to stop here for a night after one of our long days driving. Found it on the internet and made a phone call and booked a room for a late check-in. A key was left out for us and we had a good night's sleep and where... More

We really enjoyed our stay. The motel was close to town & walking distance to the Castle Hill lookout. After doing that we welcolmed a swim in the motel pool. Our room was clean and comfy. The new owners Merv & Louena were very friendly and had a good knowledge of the area. We'll definately be back!

Luana and Merv immediately made us feel very welcome. When I asked, if I could heat my dinner in a microwave, I became a complete microwave! Also for info on what to do in and around Townsville they both knew enough to keep us busy throughout our stay!

Thanks Merv for a wonderful stay, I truly enjoyed my ultra clean spacious room. The bed was sooo comfortable it was hard to get up in the morning, but coffee on the veranda with that wonderful view was calling me. (See my photo). Once again thanks for your friendly hospitality.

I am sorry as I am not a person who writes bad reviews or with high expectations. We spent an unplanned overnight stay in Townsville, in this hotel. I was aware of not having booked a hotel and the consequences. So I started calling some with reasonable rates in TripAdvisor including this one. The lady over the phone advised that... More

Good Morning, I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We had just purchased the Motel one week prior. On the Thursday, the night before your arrival we had all the rooms Pest Controlled. Unfortunately when this gets done, it is hard to control 24 hours where the pests die. We are so sorry you...
