Stayed here just for the one night and was pretty happy with what we got. We arrived late so the reception was closed but a info pack and the key were waiting for us. Parking is under the hotel is vast and is accessed via a swipe key so again no dramas. The corridors to the rooms look a bit like a detension centre but the room we had was pretty good and modern, it had a big balcony looking over the pool area. The room has a small kitchen area and was well kitted out with almost everything you would need, WiFi seemed pretty good also.

The Strand is quite a lively area but noise was not a problem and we got a good nights sleep. In the morning we were running late so contacted reception and they were great so we checked out at 11am (this is a gripe about all Australian hotels, why can't you have checkout times mirroring the rest of the world which is normally between 11am and 12 noon ?, its a lot easier for your guests)

All in all this was a good stay and would recommend this hotel.

This Motel located opposite Ocean in the middle of Ocean promenade -The Strand, and even it a lot of eatery; cafe, restaurants, pubs, it's very quiet. From our room we didn't heard any noise. Service was excellent. Every time towels was changed, everyday room was cleaned. As soon as tea, coffee, sugars finished staff filled up,,,bathroom good quality product like shampoo, hand cream etc in big canisters, so you don't need to bring with you and most important : Free WI FI. Sue- manager, was very friendly and helpful. We was in room 316, lite breeze from ocean and big palm cooled our room. Only minus was people smoking under our balcony, so we had to close door. So our advice if you don't like smell of cigarettes ask lover level.

Comfortable bed. Airconditioned. Quiet. Neat, clean room. Kitchenette included. Small but adequate balcony looking out to pool. Good value. Near cafes and Seaview Hotel, but not noisy. Great spot on the Strand, perfectly good place to spend the night in Townsville.

Booked a studio room. The plus is its small kitchen. The down side is tv in very awkward position to view. Tiny bathroom and the balcony overlooks back yards that resemble dumps. Very dark room. It was clean but at $120 a night I expect better. The drunks in the pool did not help either. Not recommended

Large clean room with comfortable bed. Kitchenette facilities in room. Free WiFI, Shower over bath in good sized bathroom. Middle of the road level of decor etc. Not luxury but definitely good value for money.
Undercover parking with lift from parking to reception and floors.
Reception and room staff helpful and friendly
Wonderful location right on The Strand. Close to Coffee Club and Juliettes for breakfast / coffee. Supermarket around the corner.
This is the motel we chose to stay whenever visiting Townsville,We just love its welcome, location anjd view.

Room Tip: We love the rooms overlooking the ocean - but you do need to use the airconditioner at night as an open door / window would be too noisy.
