we stopped just one night whilst enroute up the coast road. it is about a 15 minute walk down to the Esplanade which is not too bad. The hotel offers breakfast and dinner which was well presented, good portions and really friendly service from the chef's son. The room offers fridge, kettle, tv etc and all you need for really...

Large clean room with fridge, microwave, tea/coffee, and bowls etc for a do it yourself light breakfast. Shower, toilet and basin in the bathroom.

This motel was impeccably clean, comfortable, close to everything in inner city Townsville and the friendly staff too. Walking distance to the Strand and to restaurants in Flinders Street. Would highly recommend to others.

We found ourselves in Townsville on business and we chose the Summit Motel by its trip advisor score. Our work did not go well and it would have been even more difficult but for the help that we received from the motel owners. The high speed internet and comfortable surroundings made for a very pleasant stay. The trip spanned a...

People booking here on weekends should be aware that this hotel backs on to a wedding venue. The music is quite loud and is making it impossible for the kids to get to sleep. I know this isn't the hotels fault but I'm not happy to pay to get no sleep.

Hi Rena. Thankyou for taking the time to review our Motel and we are very sorry that you found it hard to sleep (so did we ). It isn't a wedding venue just a private home holding a wedding in their back yard. We were not informed by the neighbours at all. Thank you again for your feed back. Regards...

The second floor had a good view, and caught the breeze. We were surprised that there was only a microwave and no actual kitchen. We were allowed to use the commercial kitchen to cook our main meals. Very helpfull and obliging staff.

Lovely clean rooms, air conditioning was amazing! The bed was so comfy that we had to strip the bed for staff and write down the brand of the mattress so we can buy one for ourselves. Had the most amazing sleep and didn't want to wake up for the generous check out time! The staff were so friendly and helpful...

Can't say enough, Al and Jeannene make you welcome from the moment you arrive. The rooms are clean and fresh, the food is excellent, this place is warm and inviting, a very relaxed and quiet atmosphere. I know where I will be staying next time I am in Townsville.
