Having a daughter seriously ill in Townsville hospital, I plucked this motel from the web due to its close location. A short stay became 9 weeks during which time the friendship and advice that Bob and Margi ( the management team) gave us was a lifesaver.
The room was cleaned on a daily basis by 2 friendly ladies who would always check if we needed anything doing or topped up. The local bus stops just outside and a regular service runs both to the hospital and uni and also down to the town. Stockland shopping mal is just a short walk away with many stores, a woolworths and a Myer department store. The Ross river is a stroll up the road and the palmetum botanical gardens are close by, these were a welcome escape from reality to walk around. Overall, nice motel and quality friendly staff.
