The swimming pool has a few broken tiles, but it’s still a great temperature and inviting. Room and bathroom were very clean.

10/10 Exceptional

What a sweet little motel. Right on the esplanade that runs along Townsville's strand, this little gem is a budget-priced facility with a big heart and heaps of character. It's no-frills, but each room is well thought-out. There's a microwave, crockery and cutlery, fan as well as air conditioning (and functioning windows so you can catch the sea breeze). It's quiet, it has its own cafe open for breakfast, and a tonne of parking. There's even a pool. It's nowhere near as fancy as other places, but it's also nowhere near the price. Will definitely stay again. Perfect location, surrounding by cafes and the pub, a Coles, bottle shop and everything else you'd need for a comfortable stay.
