The location is great and the bed/linen are comfortable. Easy parking and free wifi are appreciated. The rooms themselves and especially the bathrooms really need to be renovated. The air conditioning unit (like the bathrooms) is very old and thus extremely loud! Good luck sleeping when it is on.

We had room at the front with a sea view but the room was badly insulated with wooden slates in place of what had been a window. Consequently we got noise from the road and noise from the pool which was just below our window. When we arrived the toilet seat was broken and one of the windows had warped... More

I stayed over for one night as was attending an Expo in Townsville. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had a ground floor room next to the swimming pool with a view across to the ocean. It was very convenient and easy to find somewhere safe to park my car. There was a fish and chip shop across... More

It really needs a renovation. Rooms are very old and when someone takes a shower all the neighbours can hear it since the water is so loud. Housekeeping doesn't really do anything during the cleaning. They just empty the bin and make the linen.

We booked our room direct with Linda in July, she was very helpful. Our stay was 14-21 December 2015. The room we selected Premium Ocean View Suite (upstairs) was overlooking the ocean and sea baths, with a balcony. Lovely ocean breezes. We stayed in that room for 6 nights, it had all that was required for a comfortable stay, including... More

Excellent service, booking had been booked incorrectly by agency. Staff sorted this out fairly quickly and upgraded our room to a spa room. Spacious , views over the Strand. A little noisy at night being roadside.

Budget accom but price a bit dear for quality of the rooms. Cleanliness ok. The single bed was a bit unfortable but the queen was good. Good position across the road from the strand. The really good thing about this place was the restaurant at the front. Really excellent staff and price and quality of the food great.
