This place is a little gem that probably gets passed over by others because it's not right on The Strand. Don't be fooled! It's close by and super value for money. Excellent, on-site management, and really clean and well-maintained rooms. Coin-operated laundry facilities available. Denise is great and nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommend!

Denise was a wealth of information when we asked for good restaurants, directions and a visit to Magnetic Island. Room was spacious, clean, quiet and very comfortable. Best place we have stayed in, in Townsville. And the price was right!

Great value motel. Perfect location near the Strand - close to everything but in a quiet street that makes you feel you are away from the hustle. Spotlessly clean and very friendly manager. She rang me an hour after check out to tell me I had left a small amount of vitamins in the fridge.

The rooms are self contained with plenty of room for families, they were very clean and the service was excellent. Location to the airport is brilliant, close to the beach and the Strand, fantastic for walking. Not far from the city.

We have been travelling NZ and Au for 2 plus months and have stayed in a lot of motels. I would rate this as the best we have stayed in for cleanliness, location, amenities and value. Denise was very friendly and helpful whether it came to directions, information or places to see and eat.
