We popped in to the cafe for breakfast on the recommendation of family and it was very pleasant. The staff were great and the food was good quality and value. Found out breaky is included if you stay at the motel. Worth checking out.

Dear Neal H
Thanks for these positive words regarding our Cafe. We find a well-made coffee can be a necessary start for the work day! Along with a tasty breakfast, this can make a difference to the day which awaits you. We take pride in making all items in-house - from full breakfasts to home-made scones and cakes. Some of our regulars asked about lunches and we now also provide healthy and tasty take-aways ie salads, rice paper rolls, sushi.

Wonderful experience from start to finish. I was on a business trip and arriving late at night, reception had provided specific details about the after hours entry, everything worked, plus without being asked, they included details on internet access. The room was great, nicely decorated and a park outside as requested. The pool area was a highlight, it would have to be one of the nicest around! I will return!

Room tip: Outside ground floor rooms are available, great if arriving late

We were late to arrive and the reception staff organised with the cafe next door to handout our room key. Included was a very personal welcome letter and the code for the access to free Wi-Fi. The room was spacious and very clean, but the real gem is a tropical garden in the backyard with a fantastic swimming lagoon. We would have liked to stay longer, Maybe next time!

Room tip: We stayed in a room on the second floor with street view. It was totally quite.

We are in the midst of a 6 week road trip down the east coast and this was a good choice for our three nights in Townsville. We tire of eating in restaurants constantly and the executive kitchenette unit was very well equipped, allowing us to prepare and enjoy a few simple meals in our room. It had a fridge, microwave, 2 burner cooktop, toaster, kettle, French press, loads of cookware, crockery and utensils. The room was clean, quiet and spacious with a comfortable queen size bed, armchair and breakfast table with two chairs. The air conditioning worked well and was quiet.
Cons:
1. The decor is a little dated, but in a quaint-retro kind of way.
2. We know housekeeping entered the room because the trash can was emptied each day. But oddly nothing else appeared to have been touched...not the bed, towels, or anything else. We keep our room pretty neat, but are still accustomed to having housekeeping give it a professional tidying-up each day.
3. WiFi with 1 GB of data per day was included, but the signal disconnected frequently, requiring you to re-enter your password each time you picked up your device. Not a huge issue, but an unnecessary annoyance.

Overall the pros hugely outweighed the cons. Good value for clean, comfortable, well-situated accommodation in the city centre.

Room tip: Executive kitchenette rooms are well equipped for preparing simple meals.

Dear HappyInBlueJeans
Thank you for your comments.
Understand the feeling that after being 6 weeks on the road, being able to prepare a simple meal for yourselves in a kitchenette is a good thing.
WiFi is accessed in 24hr blocks for all devices. After 24hrs, all you need to do is re-type in the same log-in password.
With regards to housekeeping, we are quite particular about this so sorry we did not meet your expectations this time.
But very glad to read that the pros outweighed the cons of your visit.
