There are many offers in Townsville but we wanted something more traditional and not the big hotel chains, that so often seem to abstract themselves pof the local culture.
So after some online research, we found this charming motel, with a beautiful façade, spacious and modern rooms but still keep lovely wooden floors and interiors in the public areas. We truly liked the family atmosphere from this place, that is also very renowned for it's good cuisine.
The staff was so friendly and helpful that we felt like home most of the time. The biggest downside is just the thin walls to other rooms and the windows that are far from being soundproof, but still we had a pleasant overnight stay while visiting charming Townsville.
Location is also great, just a couple of minutes to The Strand, a long beach stretch and 10 minutes from the city centre and other 10 minutes from Castle Hill walking trail.
I think it's really good value for money, but I am aware that the amenities are almost non-existing with a very small pool, located in in the middle of the parking/ courtyard, no internet available and the fact that no lifts exist, making your bag transportation a pain if you are on the 2nd floor like we where.
Else than that, if you like simple and traditional outlets for a fair price, this is a fine choice!
