The Ridgemont must have one of the best panoramic views in Townsville of this part of the coast from its restaurant. My wife and I could have spent much more time here during our 3 night stay. The room we had was large and the bathroom adequate.
We had breakfast each morning which was excellent but the first night there we had an evening meal which was truly awful. There was little choice, so I ended up having chicken satay with boiled rice - unfortunately the chicken hadn't been near any peanuts, there was no sauce and the rice appeared to have been microwaved it was so dry and almost inedible. My wife had lasagne, which was marginally better but no more so than a supermarket microwaved meal.
That meal aside, our stay was very pleasurable, special mention of the pool and spa a necessity, and the owners, who are new and still finding their feet, were helpful and accommodating. I wish them every success in their new venture.
