We stayed at Ridgemont on New Year's Eve to avoid the inevitable queues for taxis at the end of the night. The motel is located immediately up hill of the city centre and is within walking distance to the City, South Townsville or North Ward and the Strand. The view from the motel out to Magnetic Island is spectacular - Townsville's best kept secret!

We liked the view and the sea breezes so much we decided to pass on the Palmer Street restaurants and dine at the motel instead. The meals were home cooked, good value and the drinks at the bar reasonably priced. We had a lovely evening and the new owners and managers were very helpful, accommodating and always up for a chat, which was really nice.

The rooms aren't flash but neither are the prices! I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting good value for money and a personal touch.

Room Tip: Rooms 34 to 31 are on the 2nd floor and have the best views of The Strand and Magnetic Island.

Didn't know the Ridgemont existed until I found while searching on line, a little secluded but close to most things around the city. My wife and I had an upper level room for 2 nights, brilliant view, great to sit on balcony looking out over Strand and Maggie Island. Good value.

Requested 6 meals, 2 x 3 types,(on a night meals not usually served) and was very pleased with service, quality and quantity. Great view from dining area.

Didn't get around to utilising the pool, spa or BBQ are but they are well keep and will keep in mind for future visits.

Kevin and Mary very accommodating, will definitely stay again.

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.

Seeking something simple but beautiful, my friend and i discovered ridgemont executive. Peter was more than happy to accomodate all our needs upon arrival and suggested some great restaurants. He and mary generously allowed us to checkout after 10am and enjoyed a chit chat with us by the pool. Friendliest owners who go the step further to satisfy ur needs.
15min walk to the strand, beeeauutiful views, spacious rooms, and our fav part was enjoying a dip in the pool which features a spa. Definately look forward to returning in the near future!
The only negatives were one less bath towel which was not a huge issue and as we like our coffee, a couple more sachets would have been preferable. However! the entire stay was too short. We shall visit again soon. Thanks pete n mary for makin our weekend very relaxing and enjoyable :)

It was a great stay. We were greeted with a smile and made to feel very welcome, the Restaurant had a homely feel with a simple menu, tasty food and good wine and drink list. Excellent views from the restaurant and upstairs rooms.We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and leisure area. Would certainly recommend this property. Bryan & Leigh.
