Very friendly reception on arrival. Clean refurbished room with a comfortable bed, Microwave, Mugs and Wine Glasses. Great location on the Strand with many restaurants to choose from, Coles around the corner and a fabulous walking path alongside the beach to Rose Bay and beyond.

The rooms and bathroom have had a remodel. BUT the room configuration is strange. Bed against the wall, short wardrobe, shower head too low, can see into the room when walking pass as the curtains don't cover enough, no bed lamps to read. Last the door between the room and bathroom makes such a old noise when closing.

A really nice, clean motel with everything you need and in an excellent position so close to quality eateries etc on the Strand. The Strand itself is wonderful. Value for money and really helpful, unobtrusive hosts. Many thanks

A very good stay at this motel that is being fully refurbished. Our room had been recently refurbished so was clean, neat and nice. Good airconditioning to beat the tropical heat and easy access to out car. 2 minutes walk to the many eateries,pubs on the Strand. It was a good stay and compliments to Theresa the manager who was...

Great value. Very welcoming and helpful. Thanks Theresa. We will be back in a fortnight. Have stayed previously as it such a beautiful and convenient location. Nothing like a stroll along the Strand to start the day. Go the COWBOYS Value ++ Thanks again Merv & Carmel

Terrie could not have been more helpful at the time of booking. We were trying to coincide our stay withy a trip in the area and had to move the date of arrival several times-this was no problem and we were not made to feel like we were causing a fuss. When we arrived Terrie was seeing to another customer... More

this is a very clean place, beds are comfortable, bathroom was clean and well supplied, only problem is the entry to the shower is very narrow and as it is a solid wall, you cant do anything about it. the T.V aerial plug was broken, therefore it was hard to get good channels. there are 23 parking spots for 26...

The Beach House Motel on the Strand at Townsville is an old but clean motel in a wonderful location. We have stayed, mostly just overnight, several times over a more than twenty year period and favour it for it's convenience and value

Although location was great the rooms were a little disappointing. We had asked for 3 beds, a double and two singles but arrived to find only 2 beds. Power points were in poor supply with only one in the sleeping area and one in the bathroom. They advertised 'Pay TV' but in actual fact if you weren't a sports fan... More

Theresa W, Owner at The Beach House Motel, responded to this review

In acknowledging Nicole’s review I am compelled to highlight that: a) Nicole had booked and paid through Booking.com for three people in a standard twin room (Queen and a Single bed) at a special rate of $135.00. b) When Nicole arrived she was given a queen and a double bed. c) So there does not appear to be an abundance...
