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

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...

We chose to stay at The Beach House Motel because of the location and it really is an EXCELLENT location. However, the room was a lot more "basic" than we're used to in terms of style and I suppose that it a real point of difference between a hotel and a motel. But the little things in the room were...

Good choice for a quick overnight stay, friendly phone call day before to check up and make sure arrangements for collecting key were in place :-) Simple, great location for early morning run, rooms clean and tidy and priced well. Will stay again on business trips where I just need convenience, location, friendly service at a good price.

Great location on the Strand and close to lots of restaurants and the water. Room was quite basic and fairly clean - I had to move the tray with the cups on it and there was a heap of sugar underneath. Not a room you'd want to spend too much time in but good if you want somewhere to sleep

We stayed one night in the 'family suite', right in the back upstairs corner so quiet. Great location right on the Strand, and right around the corner from lots of restaurants. Staff helpful, facilities simple but thoroughly adequate = great value.

Stayed here three weeks ago. Although it is an older motel it is well maintained and the rooms spotless. The position just fantastic on the esplanade. The staff and people who run this motel are very helpful and even provided a toaster, plates and cutlery when all we wanted was baked beans heated in the microwave for our dinner. Lots... More

The location is sensational. This is a sleep and explore type accommodation if you intend to spend most of your time out and about and just back to sleep then it's good. The bed is comfortable but squished up into one corner of the room. Everything felt a bit dated. But it was quiet at night and I think for... More

I stayed here with my mum and friend sharing a family room. We arrived to one of the warmest welcomes I've had by the lady at reception. From offering cutlery and crockery, fresh (read NOT UHT) milk, water and WiFi everything we need is right here. Across the road from the beautiful strand and great restaurants within walking distance we... More
