The room we had was right at the end of the top floor and had magnificent views of the harbour. The bed was very soft and we ended up sleeping the wrong way around in the bed to avoid doing our backs in. The breakfast was cereal, toast and juice. There was no choice of cereal or bread types, just...

Excellent view, only saw 1 staff person who was friendly and tried to be helpful but alas that didn't cut it. This place is falsely advertised on their own website. It is in disrepair and most things advertised were non existent. We were only there for one night on business thank heavens. The room was very standard with no safety...

Views to die for. And that's where it ended. The only staff member tried so hard to be helpful. But no minibar as advertised. No wifi offered. One pillow per bed. 2 knives, I fork, 1 dinner plate. Holes in the carpet. Restaurant never appeared to be open although the shutter was up on the bar a couple of afternoons....

The ridgemont is close to the strand (1.8km walk/drive) and backs on to castle hill (it took me 3 mins to walk to the start of the goat track on castle hill). The room is clean and tidy with a tv, fridge and air conditioning. The curtains dim the room well - it was a comfortable stay. On arrival there...

This place is by far the best value for money stay in townsville at half the price of any of the stays on the strand and with just as an amazing view. Rooms are modern and comfortable and the owners are absolutely delightful people. Only 10 mins walk to the strand, flinders street or 5 mins taxi or drive. You...

I stayed one night here and had room 29, which has a broad view over the water and Magnetic Island. Room was secure and comfortable and had a lot of storage space. Everything worked well and I slept well, although the bed was a bit old and softer than I would have liked. There was a fridge and microwave in...

I stayed here for a night on a brief trip to Townsville and I was more than happy with it. The owners are extremely friendly and eager to help; I had my motorcycle delivered that day and it had been kept safe, with the keys left at reception for pick up upon my arrival. Nothing is too much trouble; I...

Disgusting service, clearly no duty of care towards guests. My pregnant wife spilled a small amount of her drink and upon leaving the premises we had been charged a further $100 for carpet cleaning without being notified. This motel is a joke. Don't stay here if you value your time or money
