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

I have just come back from staying at the Grand Hotel for a week for work purposes. I have been to TI earlier this year and stayed in another hotel down the road and I would definitely recommend this hotel first. The hotel is well located and close to the ferry. You can walk out the back door to the... More

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights whilst on Thursday Island for work. The hotel is well located, close to the ferry terminal. The rooms are basic and very clean. I would stay here again. The food served at the bar and restaurant of is very good and reasonably priced.

There was a group of us that came up to Thursday Island for a birthday and we all stayed here. We stayed in various rooms and all really enjoyed our stay. One of our friends had a problem, and the management were very good at sorting it out. Overall we all enjoyed our time here and are so glad that... More

The Grand Hotel public bar has a wonderful outdoor dining area with sweeping views of Thursday Island's gorgeous harbour. Staff are warm and friendly, location handy to jetty and town and for a remote area quite a choice of pub meals. If you wish to go a bit more up market there is also a restaurant here as well.

The front rooms facing the ocean with direct access to verandas are the ones to book. The staff are excellent,efficient as well as very friendly and helpful. The managers Chris and Lee are great and like to... More

Thursday night - what a queue - yes the best value in town. Friendly locals sharing tables on the balcony. Tender chicken and salad,chips or vegetables. Water front views if you arrive before sunset. They also have a resturant if you prefer to spoil your self, apparently good food.

I'll note up front that I found the prices of this hotel relatively hard to stomach... but having compared it to the other accommodation options on Thursday Island I bit the bullet and was happy to do so. It really does seem a level above the other options on the island, and while it largely falls on the functional side... More

I met a friend for a meal and we were unaware of the deal on Tuesday nights at the pub. We both had the steak and for $10.00, it was quite good. I have enjoyed several meals over a few years at the Grand and I have always enjoyed whatever I ordered. Good pub food. Sitting on the front balcony... More
