We stayed 2 nights in November and were well satisfied. The hosts, Graeme and Kathy were friendly and helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay.
The room was of a good size and well equipped, and above all pretty quiet and free from road noise. The covered parking slots were welcome given the heat although this did make the room a bit dark in the daytime.
The laundry was free and there was a good open-air drying area. The pool was pretty good for a motel, cleaner than most and even had a spa tub. The only thing was that the water in both the pool and the spa was a bit cool (at least for wimps like me).
It is a bit far out of town - Townsville is after all a sizeable city - and the eating and shopping facilities were about a kilometre away but we enjoyed the walk to and from.

We are a family run Motel with 25 kitchenette units many with King beds and comfy lounge chairs. Undercover parking onsite, and a great pool with spa and slide for the kids. ... more less
