Been here a few times for a crumbed steak. The meal was usually fantastic! Was so unsatisfied with this meal. The steak was literally about 70g with about 5 chips. The sauce was not was ordered and the steak was mainly grisle. It was nothing but terrible. Will not be going back.

This morning on iur last day in Townsville we decided to try the buffet breakfast at the hotel Allen. What a nice surprise. There was plenty of hot and cold food. The hot food was pub style breakfast but was really tasty. The dining room was large with plenty of seating and cool. The buffet is open for breakfast from...

Really don't bother, with food it's low rate. If you like pokies or gambling on the horses... it's all there. Bar snacks are provided, a bonus! Nothing much else to offer, beer garden is ok. Accommodation is cheap and it's close to the strand

.... when you book the cheapest place in town. The double room feels quite old and not maintained very well, with marks on the walls, light shades missing, chipped soap holders etc. In saying that, the bed was really comfortable, the shower good and hot and the bar fridge cold. Most of the staff were really friendly and helpful. One...

Whilst not expecting a lot from a $14.95 "Full Buffet Breakfast" my two mates who accompanied me commented that cholera carts in Asia look more appetizing. The usual bacon, eggs, baked beans, spaghetti, toast and savory mince were all there, but there was a noticeable omission of fresh products, as everything looks to have come out of pre-packaged cans, boxes...

This room was half the price of the next best option ($70). Had two single beds, private bathroom and tea / coffee / tv / aircon. It had a tiny balcony and unfortunately the balcony door was impossible to secure. I'm not overly security conscious but I think the average person would be very disconcerted by pub accom that you...

Can't fault the location. Everything we needed was within easy walking distance. Plenty of parking and the pool looks great. And that is about as much as I can say for the positives. Checked in they had no record of my booking. I showed them the confirmation on my phone even offered them the booking ref number, when I asked...

We decided to go somewhere near to our accommodation but were disappointed. The service was very good and staff were very friendly but the meals weren't of a very good standard. I ordered fish which was overcooked. My husband ordered chicken parmigiano and although it was a very generous serving it was only ordinary. The chips were awful. Wouldnt go...

Located in The Strand esplanade tourism precinct Hotel Allen is close to shops and restaurants. It is a sports oriented hotel with plenty of TV screens and gaming machines. I have stayed in the motel style rooms out the back several times. Accommodation is adequate (certainly not flash) and location and value excellent. On weekends tariff will often include extensive...
