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.

Stayed one night as part of Outback Spirit Cape York tour. Food was good and room comfortable. Free Wifi, which only worked intermittently, but hey - we were on holiday so who cares? Hotel well organised. Group arrived early, but we could use the restaurant toilets, and could leave our bags, before leaving on a ferry for Friday Island and... More

Our rooms which was 26 right on the corner of the hotel with a view out and over the bay which was excellent. It was a good size room, with air conditioning and it was good after working out the secret way of starting it. Was a bit noisy but cool. The fans did not work and they looked like... More

This hotel has been in operation for many years and is clean however the whole place is in need of a renovation. The staff are helpful, friendly and attentive doing whatever they can to make the stay more comfortable. I had breakfast which was the standard fare of scrambled eggs, toast and bacon. Fruit is in abundance here and a... More

Upon check in, I was greeted by a smiling receptionist and was surprised that the motel didn’t have my booking. Luckily, I have saved the confirmation email on my I-phone and showed her a copy of the confirmation booking as proof that my booking existed. Since the motel was full , she has managed to get me a room in... More
