We spent 5 nights at this motel and would stay again & again! Great location with amazing views. Whilst the motel is aged the rooms are clean, comfortable beds & well appointed. Fabulous & economical.

My partner and myself booked a room here for an overnight stay. We just wanted somewhere simple, and not over priced. We got cheap & nasty! I booked 3 or so days in advance. When we got there the owner/receptionist man seemed friendly. He started checking us in, and asked what time the next morning we would be leaving. We...

Normally I would let people comment, good and bad, without posting a response. But on this occasion a reply is warranted. The golden rule in life - people treat you as you treat them. You arrived on Saturday night and were rude and arrogant...a total upstart .... no apologies here. We are lucky that we have a pro-active council who...

Our hearts sank as we drove into the drive way. We were shown to an upstairs room which was off the most disgusting corridor I have ever experienced. The room had been recently painted but was so small it was hard to move around the bed. We didn't sleep all night for the noise from the pub 2 doors up...

I recommend this motel to anyone travelling to Townsville on a budget. I stayed in one of the back units. The motel manager, Rosemary was attentive and helpful. The room was clean and there was free wifi. We were able to walk to all the major attractions and the supermarket was only across the road.

I booked this motel, and requested some information. John called to verify my request. Room, clean and welcoming. Loved the balcony with waterview, but quiet from traffic and nearby pub. For reasonable price, great location, slept well, and coles nearby. Will stay again.

Stayed one night in May 2016. Very disappointed. The rooms are small, seem to be have been fitted out at the lowest possible cost. Equipment is very basic and the decor has faded. Overall impression is cheap & shabby. However, the location is central, the room was clean and relatively inexpensive although there are likely to be better options in...
