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... More

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... More

It may not be 5 star but this motel is clean, beds are great and the shower second to none. The view from the balcony out over sea way is great.The location of the motel is handy to shopping centre, restuarants and coffee shops. You are staying right on the Strand. The motel has a pool.

Don't be put off by the price, yes at the cheaper end of the accommodation market in Townsville. Spotlessly clean basic rooms. Great swimming pool. BUT - Location Location - this motel is right on the Strand. Close to cafes, restaurants and a large supermarket. I would stay here again.

View from all balconies is the sea one way and castle hill the other way! This is 11th hotel I have stayed in now touring the east coast and this ticks all our boxes. Sunny swimming pool, fairly quite, good wifi, decent balcony. Host was always super helpful.

Great location, on the strand, close to everything (bars, restaurants, supermarket, long walks on the strand!), on site parking and free internet; and above all a host that could not be nicer. The rooms have everything you need for a short stay, and if you're lucky (I was!) you'll get one on the 2nd floor with a view (the rooms... More
