We stayed here and loved it, would recommend it to every one, staff were friendly and helpful, room was large, well set up and the hotel/motel was in a great location.

A pleasant motel on the sea front. Comfortable, clean, large rooms. We had a ground floor room, which had a small patio area with table and chairs. Settee and comffortable chairs in the room too. Easy stroll to eating places and breakfast/coffee stops.

I usually go there. I love the place and the view. But sadly they put the prices up so my bookings were reduced :(

Would highly recommended this motel. Excellent location right on the middle of the strand, near restaurants and supermarket. Clean rooms, self contained and quite modern. I stayed in a studio room with a ocean view, there was adequate space for two people (don't expect too big a room) and great view. There was a fair amount of noise coming from the strand at night but it is still manageable. Really nice outdoor area with BBQ, tables pool and ocean view. Daily servicing, you may be able to get it cheaper if serviced less often so ask. Definitely one of the best strand accommodation options!

Room Tip: Room with a view and balcony worth it, the third floor probably has the best view

I got this room on a realtively cheap wotif deal, while the room was clean and they had partially reburfished the room, the rest of the room and the bathroom were very dated. Lucky for me I was basically only in the room to shower and sleep. Would not recommend this hotel if you want somewhere nice to relax during the day. Great location right on the strand but definately not luxury.

We stayed there over easter for three nights and the location was just perfect. Our room was very big and clean with a modern kitchen, so we could cook our own breaky and enjoyed it on our balony. I liked the undercover parking, very secure.

for the price u cant go wrong considering the location, smack bang in the middle of the strand precient, maybe u ,mite get some views of the ocean maybe u wont, but walk accross the road and your right on the parkland less then 100 metres from the ocean, i cant see how anyone could complain about the location, yes its pretty much a motel, but based on the studio apartment i stayed in last october its modern clean, and not at all drabby, and then think about the fact your only paying around about 119 for a studio apartment nice comfy bed and a balcony for the price i just see how u cant go wrong with this place, oh and also secure under cover cark park, friendly front office staff that were not snobbish and were more then willing to answer any questions i had, to me this place is good value, good honest respectable place to stay yeah okay a litle noisey friday and saturday nites but thats to be expected based on the location in the middle of the strand, sadly they were fully booked when i was back in townsville last week (i think thats ussually a good sign), i stayed else were and cost me 199 a nite and i wasnt even on the strand, this place is good value, it is clean, the rooms have modern daycore and met my standards, was clean, comfortable, bar fridge nice little kitchenette comfy bed nice little balcony with a little table and 2 chairs, to me this is good honest value accomadation on the strand, and this time i will book ahead of time for my stay in may give this place a try if your think of it as a motel book it, and stay i do think u will be pleasantly surprised for the price and for the location, have a nice day all,
