Stayed here in August. The rooms were very good with all the amenities you need. TV has foxtel and wifi for the room. The front rooms facing the ocean with direct access to verandas are the ones to book. The staff are excellent,efficient as well as very friendly and helpful. The managers Chris and Lee are great and like to... More

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.

Best value feed on TI - got to try the chicken schnitzel ... So good - with chips and coleslaw. If anything they could work on the dressing for the coleslaw but hands down best value in town. Prefer a decent steak? Get in there Tuesdays for $10 steak night

Good location right near the wharf where the ferry docks. Water views from the bistro and restaurant . Good food at reasonable prices. Rooms are basic but very clean and tidy. Budget rooms are just that, but the upstairs rooms are worth the extra cost. Very friendly staff.

The Grand Hotel rooms are a good size with solid and well appointed, easy on the eye furnishings. Everything is in good order. The rooms at the front have a great view. Service is friendly and available when needed. The hotel has a very pleasant bar with a lovely deck area open to the breezes and well shaded. The restaurant... More
