I had a combined family/business stay and loved it. Contrary to some of the reviews I read, the motel was very clean and well kept. The room is basic but definitely meets the needs of travelers with a good size room and bathroom. I loved the pool area which was a great place to relax with lounges and a balance... More

The Jardine Motel is a clean and comfortable place to stay on Thursday Island. Right on the water and opposite the Memorial Park. The on-site restaurant does a good breakfast and staff are friendly and helpful. The room has the basic amenities - hairdryer, television, air-con and ceiling fan, tea and coffee facilities. The room is quite big and the... More

Okay so Thursday Island is not spoilt for choice when it comes to accommodation. However, having booked an ocean view room at $310 per night, I didn't expect the ceiling to be covered in mould. Let me tell you, the ocean view was alright (not spectacular) but it was a long way from distracting me from the view of my... More

This is just a normal 2.5 star accommodation, small pool, bar, air con (essential). The rooms were tidy but not what I would say spotless. I went to make myself a cup of tea and the scale inside the cup looked like baked on layers from numerous uses. I put the cups in the sink hoping that they would be... More

Probably the best place to eat if you want anything more than pub food on TI. This restaurant is inside the motel. Its welcoming, a diverse menu, we all selected different food, it was all fresh and tasty, albeit about $30 a main, but well worth it. Good wine list, it was pretty quiet when we dined (a group of...

There are some good things about this Motel, but the cleanliness really killed it for me. As soon as I took my shoes off in the tiled room, the floor felt slimy, slippery and dirty. I walked in the bathroom and stepped on the bathroom floor mat and left a brown foot print on it. It was like it never... More

Visiting Thursday Island, just off the tip of Australian mainland, is a treat few get to enjoy. To get from Brisbane (in the same state) it takes a two plane flights, a bus ride, a boat journey across amazing waters (from Horn Island) and another bus trip to reach your hotel. Quiet a long day. The Jardine staff are friendly... More

I've just come home from Thursday Island after staying a week for business at the Jardine Motel. The rooms are clean, the food on offer at the restaurant was cooked and presented very well, and all staff only too happy to accommodate any special requests that I had. I'd like to make special mention to Charlene on the front desk,... More

Traveling and working in remote area's around Australia, the types and styles of accommodation that we use vary considerable. The management and staff at the Jardine Motel make the difference between a building and a home away from home. With a wide and varied selection of fresh foods from the region feature on the menu such as Barramundi and fresh... More

This was towards the end of a long trip from Cairns, so it was great to find a nice hotel to relax. Room was nice and clean, pool OK and restaurant OK. While we were there, the whole Island experienced a power failure, but the hotel seemed to cope. We were even looking forward to a candle light supper.
