I have stayed here many times, it provides everything I need & I think it represents good value for money. It's not five star, probably two or three star, but I choose it over more expensive places. The first thing to mention is the accommodation itself. This is not in the charming old Queenslander building that's used in advertisements, though...

This is a super place to stay. Fryer St is at right angles to The Strand so you are only 50m walk to The Strand beach yet don't suffer the inconvenience of staying right on The Strand with its traffic noise, other motels noise, noisy pedestrians etc. The Lodge itself is historic- the motel rooms are behind the Lodge in...

Pluses- nice and close to the Strand, easy walk to lots of restaurants. Nice and quiet. Large room size and bathroom, plenty of hot water.

This is the place to stay when you go to Townsville. It's not expensive, it has a quality restaurant and if you want the bars and restaurants of the Strand they are only a short stroll away, which means it's nice and quiet when you want it to be. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and very clean. I will...

Had no knowledge of any accommodation in Townsville. Travelling with our family so was seeking something reasonably priced. Our family of five really enjoyed staying here. Ideally situated next to the Strand. Well kept rooms in a quiet location. Highly recommended.

Great location, The Strand is only a 1-2 minute walk away from the Yongala. There is plenty of places to choose from to eat only minutes away on the Strand. The Seaview hotel offers a selection of $10.00 meals from Monday to Thursday nights. The free waterpark for the kids on the Strand is at the end of the street...

Yongala Lodge was pleasant, clean and spacious. Yes, the wifi only works on the front verhanda but it's undercover and there are loads of tables and chairs for your comfort. A little noisey but we stayed in school holidays.

Gorgeous grand old wooden house with accomodation out the back. Ask the receptionist to show you the antique furniture. Our group booked an apartment and room that were both really spacious. The smokers loved the balcony in the apartment. The managers let us order pizza delivery to the grand front veranda of the old house to enjoy the atmosphere.
