I spent quite a bit of time here on a short 4 day trip to TI. The Grand was right next door to my sister's workplace. So while she was busy I made some new friends and enjoyed the hospitality. The staff make this place and I had a few good laughs with the efficient Ben who can carry more... More

I can highly recommend this hotel particularly if you can get a room with a balcony overlooking the harbour. The room was spacious, clean and had all the basics and service was very friendly and helpful. Meals in the bar downstairs were also good and reasonably priced. Surprisingly high standard of accommodation given its remote location and better than just... More

Spent one night on Thursday Island and wish I had time to spend a few more days to reply explore the place properly. We stayed in an ocean view room with a beautiful view of the harbour, a short walk from the ferry terminal that brought us from Horn Island. The grand is an older style place but our room... More

We were doing Cairns and needed to do a trek to Thursday Island. It has been on my "must-list"since whenever. Just the name alone conjures up a need to visit, no?. Room was comfy with for an overnight stay, with air-con perfect and staff lovely. If the idea of resorts are on your mind.. forget it. This is a remote... More

I stayed 7 nights at the Grand Hotel (31.3.-7.4.16) and my overall experience there was a pleasant one. I had booked many months in advance, opting for an ‘Ocean View Balcony’ room for AUD $220/night. This price was based on a single occupancy, dual and triple occupancy cost more. My room (#4) was of a good size (see attached images),... More

I stayed in an indoor room, and was pleased by the cleanliness, the quality of the room and how quiet it was even with the air conditioner on. I don't recommend checking in at dinner time as the staff are busy in the restaurants. Free wifi was helpful. Breakfast was fantastic - cold and hot buffet, and plenty of it.

The food is great also at both the bistro and the restaurant. The woman on reception was very friendly and helpful. If in TI you also must go to... More

Thursday Island is an ideal place to stroll in the summer heat with the need to find local shops to get into some a/c shops to cool down. The Grand Hotel offers a good menu to snack but portions are large but all well cooked a friendly staff.

Stayed here for 2 nights, reception welcome was great, nothing to much trouble, the rooms were cleaning the aircon works, the bathrooms are large but have not been refurbished. Wifi works well, location is great, a short walk (100metres) to the wharf where the ferry drops you off from Horn Island. The buffet breakfast was perfect, any fussy breakfast eater... More
