I visited on 5/6/7 August 2016. It is centrally located and easy to find. Booking staff were helpful. Unfortunately the management forgot to service my room, which was a shame. It marred an otherwise pleasant stay in Townsville.

Travelling to Townsville regularly on monthly bases. It is a great place to stay, excellent service, clean and tidy rooms, and very friendly staff. Conference room is also excellent, plenty space, with tables , chairs and air-conditioning. It is situated on the hill overlooking the bay and Magnetic Island, Only 15 minutes walking to the Strand. Highly recommended.

I travel to Townsville regularly and always stay at the Summit. They have great service, a conference room, and are always accommodating- even leaving a couple of cold beers in the fridge for when I turn up late at night! The wifi is great, views are amazing and the location is central and only a 10 minute walk to the...

This little gem served as a great pit stop on our way from Rockhampton to Atherton Tablelands (home). The rate was cheap and cheery, but it certainly didn't mean that we were staying in sub standard accommodation. The room was large and airy. The beds (1 x queeen and 1 x single) were super comfortable. The aircon cool and crisp...

This motel is fantastic value for money. We travel to Townsville regularly on Business and we have tried many motels. The Summit is in a great location for us being so close to the Strands restaurants and driving down the other side of the hill you are a minute away from the Cowboys Leagues Club.

We were on a driving trip from Port Douglas to Brisbane and decided to stop here for a night after one of our long days driving. Found it on the internet and made a phone call and booked a room for a late check-in. A key was left out for us and we had a good night's sleep and where...

We really enjoyed our stay. The motel was close to town & walking distance to the Castle Hill lookout. After doing that we welcolmed a swim in the motel pool. Our room was clean and comfy. The new owners Merv & Louena were very friendly and had a good knowledge of the area. We'll definately be back!
