“very nice quiet room at this Motel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

We only stayed here for the one night on our way to Palm Cove near Cairns.
It was a lovely motel, very clean and the room we had was at the back of the Motel and very quiet.
Room was large, bed comfortable;.
The Restaurant was not open as it was a Saturday and it is only open Monday to Friday.
The own suggested a Tavern which was 5 mins walk away plus 2 or 3 other restaurants close by.
We decided to try Tavern first, glad we did meal was lovely and value for money although it was very busy being a Saturday night and a little bit noisy but what can you expect on a weekend night.

Room Tip: Room 105 is right in the back corner of this motel and very very quiet!!

The family that run this motel were very welcoming and accommodating.
The motel is clean with very comfortable beds. Even though it is on a main road there was no audible road noise while in the room.
The only thing I could fault was the air conditioner which was a bit nosy - and the parrots. But that can't be helped.
Close to the mater hospital and within walking distance to restaurants and local hotels.

Room Tip: We opted for the room with the king bed which was very comfortable

Stayed for 2 nights recently and found staff very pleasant and helpful. Room was to the back of the complex, and despite being on a main road , no traffic noise. The room was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. It's location is ideal for whatever purpose you may be visiting Townsville, and would not hesitate to stay for any future visits.

My wife and I stayed here again in Oct, it definately is the best Motel in Townsville. Always a warm welcome and the food in the restaurant is great. It isa not in the centre of town but it is still well located to reach most points for no more than abouty 20.00 in a taxi. Thanks again Emma and Dave.

This place was ideal for our needs, just the basic motel setup, but as we were a family of 5, they also let us borrow a toaster and cutlery and crockery so we could do our own breakfasts, which was really nice of them.
The rooms were very clean and comfortable, the only thing my mother-in-law wasn't too keen on was that there wasn't a window in the spare bedroom, so she felt a bit claustrophobic.
Even though its situated next to the road I was surprised as to how quiet it was and slept very well.
Its a little drive into Townsville itself, so you will need a car.
Very nice little place, would definately stay again.

very clean, friendly staff, close to shops, the only negative was the besser block walls which make this excellent motel look a little outdated.

This is a very good Motel to stay.
