We had a rush family trip for a funeral and staff were very obliging finding the most suitable rooms for our group, showing us several rooms and letting us choose. The motel is right on the Strand, no views from the room but so close to the beach and parkland, and also to the CBD. It is very old but...

We spent 5 nights at this motel and would stay again & again! Great location with amazing views. Whilst the motel is aged the rooms are clean, comfortable beds & well appointed. Fabulous & economical.

My partner and myself booked a room here for an overnight stay. We just wanted somewhere simple, and not over priced. We got cheap & nasty! I booked 3 or so days in advance. When we got there the owner/receptionist man seemed friendly. He started checking us in, and asked what time the next morning we would be leaving. We...

StrandmanagerTsville, Manager at The Strand Motel, responded to this review

Normally I would let people comment, good and bad, without posting a response. But on this occasion a reply is warranted. The golden rule in life - people treat you as you treat them. You arrived on Saturday night and were rude and arrogant...a total upstart .... no apologies here. We are lucky that we have a pro-active council who...

Our hearts sank as we drove into the drive way. We were shown to an upstairs room which was off the most disgusting corridor I have ever experienced. The room had been recently painted but was so small it was hard to move around the bed. We didn't sleep all night for the noise from the pub 2 doors up...

I recommend this motel to anyone travelling to Townsville on a budget. I stayed in one of the back units. The motel manager, Rosemary was attentive and helpful. The room was clean and there was free wifi. We were able to walk to all the major attractions and the supermarket was only across the road.

I booked this motel, and requested some information. John called to verify my request. Room, clean and welcoming. Loved the balcony with waterview, but quiet from traffic and nearby pub. For reasonable price, great location, slept well, and coles nearby. Will stay again.
