“Friendly and clean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

A great location on top of Townsville, still very close to the centre. Thank you to the very friendly owners, Al and Jeannene for their warm hospitality. Spent most of our time by the pool or in our comfortable room, 5 star service!

This is a fantastic place to stay! We were on our way to Cairns and needed a stop over, Al and Jeannene were most accommodating. Nothing was to much trouble. The room was lovely, clean and comfortable with aircon a big bonus in summer. The pool, bbq area all keep clean and tidy. The view of the mountain lit up at night was a great sight to see from the motel, we had to inspect the view from the top early the next morning ! We loved the people and the motel so much we used it on the way back through a week later, we will be back for more on our winter trip

Clean comfortable terrific location very safe perched high on the hill. Ample space and friendly hospitality.

Very happy with the quality of accommodation and value for money. Only. Downside was hearing a noisy guest outside our room departing early but no big deal

Six of us (3 couples) arrived at 8:30 pm (or so) on a Sunday. Allan was so welcoming! Knowing that we'd driven for a few hours, and that not too many places were open in town, he ordered pizzas for us, put them on our bill, and made us feel entirely welcome.

Our rooms were clean, comfortable, amenities included. Wifi was free. We enjoyed the pool too.

Townsville is an easy downhill walk with lots of dining options. Allan recommended Benny's Hot Wok. We did enjoy it. It's a bit of a haul uphill but not too bad.

One feature we most enjoyed at the Summit Motel was the outdoor seating. This arrangement encourages guests to spend time outside, to meet each other, and gives the motel a very family-friendly feel.

We were all very pleased that we chose the Summit Motel for two nights on our vacation.

We just checked in to the Summit Motel in Townsville. I booked this place based on other reviews on Trip Advisor and I am super happy!

We arrived way before the normal check-in time in the hope that the room would be ready… I did not have high hopes as I have tried this before with other (expensive 5 star hotels) places and never get the room early BUT this time it was not a problem!

The lady at reception was very nice and welcoming and we also got a warm and happy welcome from Russell the resident dog! (he is very cute).

The motel is less than a 10 minute drive from the airport and very close to shopping and eateries. The complex is very nicely set out, clean and with a very inviting pool area. There was plenty of comfortable parking right near our room.

Our room is great. Very clean and nicely furnished with very comfy beds made up with super fresh linen and towels. The bathroom is very clean and roomy and has all the amenities you need… hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner and body soap.

The motel is set high up on a hill so you get a really nice breeze and there is also a bit of a view from our room out to the ocean.

I'm super happy with this choice and doubt that anyone would be disappointed with booking this Motel. Good value for money.

Very clean and comfortable accommodation with welcoming friendly hosts. The motel has a pleasant pool which was great for the kids to cool off in after a day out. The location is excellent, a quick walk downhill to the beautiful Strand for dinner, drinks or ice creams. All round a good value motel room where we will return to and recommend family and friends to stay.

Room Tip: I would recommend upstairs
