We stayed at the Colonial Rose Motel for four nights as we were in Townsville for a couple of appointments. Emma and David were so welcoming and accommodating that it made it a pleasure to stay with them. The room was very clean, and the bed was super comfy. It is close to the hospital, and $12 -16 by taxi to the Strand and shopping centres. We had a lovely dinner in the restaurant on our last evening and the chef makes a delicious apple pie and sticky date pudding. Emma and David were so helpful that they happily called a cab for us and even on our departure ran us to the train station in there own vehicle. We would both highly recommend this motel for any stay in Townsville.

I have been booking into this motel in the past 3 years.. They are so accommodating..
Great location.
Ok so you are in walking distance to Coles, and other places to eat day and night.
HJ around the corner for the kids.
McDonald's down the road just past the bridge, so is Gj coffee and a owl night shop..
good price for the rooms..
The pool is quite a little gem.. Nice and refreshing.. Good car parking too..

Room Tip: No spa but pool excellent.. No gym but the washing area is good..

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.

Stayed: December 2012, traveled solo
