I have stayed at The Summit 3 times now. Significant changes have been made since the current very friendly and helpful owners took over nearly a year ago. The rooms have always been spotlessly clean with plenty of space & importantly, comfortable beds. Hearty home cooked meals are available which is fabulous. Nice pool. Very good value for money. Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms have views.

Hi Leith.
Thank you for taking time to review our motel and yes we have made significant changes in the last year to the motel. We now offer home cooked meals to rooms for our guess who might just like a quiet night at the motel. Anything from a large steak to a light snack is available with a little notice. Looking foward to your next visit to Townsville.

This motel was delightful. Very affordable. The room was sparkling clean and just the right size. It was very quiet at night, and the bed was comfortable. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. I'll definitely stay again the next time I'm in Townsville

My wife and I stayed at this motel overnight on our way to Undara Lava Tubes, and I must say we were very pleasantly surprised at the accommodation provided. The room was spacious, well furnished and spotlessly clean.

We had chosen this motel based on good reviews from previous trip advisors, and we were certainly not disappointed. It is very well positioned and centrally located. If you have not been to Townsville previously take a trip up to Castle Rock which is nearby, for magnificent views.

I would not hesitate in highly recommending this motel to other potential travellers.

I've stayed at lots of motels around Australia but I must say the Summit motel is the best value, most friendly motel that I've had the pleasure in staying at. The rooms are a very good size and my room had a wonderful view over the city of Townsville. A lot of attention to cleanliness is also obvious. The owners Allan and Janine are to be congratulated for their wonderful attention to great personal service. Also there is no need to go out at night to have dinner, all you have to do is ask Allan to cook you a superb meal for a very reasonable price !!
