Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights whilst on Thursday Island for work. The hotel is well located, close to the ferry terminal. The rooms are basic and very clean. I would stay here again. The food served at the bar and restaurant of is very good and reasonably priced.

There was a group of us that came up to Thursday Island for a birthday and we all stayed here. We stayed in various rooms and all really enjoyed our stay. One of our friends had a problem, and the management were very good at sorting it out. Overall we all enjoyed our time here and are so glad that... More

The Grand Hotel public bar has a wonderful outdoor dining area with sweeping views of Thursday Island's gorgeous harbour. Staff are warm and friendly, location handy to jetty and town and for a remote area quite a choice of pub meals. If you wish to go a bit more up market there is also a restaurant here as well.

Thursday night - what a queue - yes the best value in town. Friendly locals sharing tables on the balcony. Tender chicken and salad,chips or vegetables. Water front views if you arrive before sunset. They also have a resturant if you prefer to spoil your self, apparently good food.

I'll note up front that I found the prices of this hotel relatively hard to stomach... but having compared it to the other accommodation options on Thursday Island I bit the bullet and was happy to do so. It really does seem a level above the other options on the island, and while it largely falls on the functional side... More

I met a friend for a meal and we were unaware of the deal on Tuesday nights at the pub. We both had the steak and for $10.00, it was quite good. I have enjoyed several meals over a few years at the Grand and I have always enjoyed whatever I ordered. Good pub food. Sitting on the front balcony... More

This hotel is a hop, step and a jump from the wharf, which is the only entry to Thursday Island. Not far to anywhere on the Island really, as it is only about 4.5km square. The room we were in had a view over the water, which cost a little extra. The bed was very comfortable and the amenities were... More

A lovely hotel that is close to the Wharf and one street from the main street of the island. I stayed in the budget rooms which is downstairs, but was very comfortable during my stay. Pub attached to the hotel which provided meals which were very good. Breakfast also provided which was good. Upstairs rooms also available, with views over... More

Accommodation is not cheap on TI but considering the remote location, it's acceptable. The hotel did a good job with our booking and the room was way better than I had anticipated. Breakfast, included in the tariff, could not be faulted. The view from the balcony, looking over the water to the islands was exceptional.
