Located on the waterfront, very close to the Main Street, this is a good choice when staying on Thursday island. Reception staff are very nice and helpful. There is free wireless internet of up to 200MB per day. The rooms are well maintained and air conditioned. There is a self service laundry located in the ground floor with washing machines... More

fairly standard motel, needs a coat of paint in places and a few fix ups but generally clean. Staff were very pleasant and the meals were lovely. The outdoor area by the pool is also nice. Unfortunately TI is just so expensive, anywhere else i would expect 4-5 stars for the price we paid

went to TI on business, but on arrival had to make some phone calls, but told there was a problem with the lines and if I promised to be quick they would let me make one call from reception then I would have to walk to the other end of Main Street to use public phone at the post office!... More

I stayed here for a night and was surprised to find this little gem. Just remember where you are when you stay here but it has everything you need. The staff are friendly and the restaurant menu is as good as any city hotel restaurant. I had ocean glimpses but no problems - who sits in a hotel room anyway... More

Thursday Island is small but a wonderful place to visit. This motel is very clean and accommodating. The staff are very friendly. The restaurant meals are superb. Compliments to the chef! (we were there start of July 2013)

The location of this hotel is terrific, right on the front overlooking the sea on Thursday Island. It is probably the best hotel available on the island. the food was great and the food and drinks service really good. the rooms were quite adequate and lacked for nothing. HOWEVER, the night we spent there was a Friday and this is... More

This place has had my custom four times now in the restaurant, not once have I been disappointed. The service is good, not pretentious, and the food is just worth every penny! They know how to cook a steak, the portion sizes good and the balance of food versus accompanying veggies....lovely! I recommend a mango Dakari too! I have not... More

The jardine would have to be one of the more classier or expensive options for accomodation on T.I {thursday island} but dont expect anything special. The rooms are fairly basic with cable tv and if your lucky enough you might get a ocean view room. The staff of backpackers are incredibly helpful and the chefs do an amazing job. I... More

Was not a guest of the resort but did dine in, great food & service. Cannot comment on the accommodation but if you do stay on TI, worth a visit just to dine in. If you get the chance visit the Café on the Esplanade just along from the Jardine, Lobster Pies, something else!

I spent 2 nights at Jardine Motel. The staff who are almost entirely Indian, are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is pleasant and meals quite good. There was water dripping from the ceiling so a bucket on the floor in the restaurant. The property is run down, with broken down old equipment sitting around. The rooms are less than... More
