    nice place close to all parts of town and a short walk to the wharf. Room OK but a bit dated. Air conditioner a bit noisy. Staff quite friendly and helpful when asked. Not all that much to do in the area, particularly on the weekends.

    These rooms cost the equivalent of a room in a big city hotel but do not come with any of the trimmings you might expect for the cost. They are clean, have a reasonable amount of clear nicely tiled floor space and have all the basics covered but not a lot more. There are great views from Thursday Island, just...

    Large room with tiled floor and very effective air conditioning. Very few staff around, though when I rang because I couldn't work out the air con someone was there very promptly. The pub food at the hotel in front ('Federal' I think) was quite good and reasonably priced.

    Originally booked into the Jardine Motel I was moved here due to an overbooking error. I was pleasantly surprised as the room was large with a tiled floor. From the window there was a good partial view of the bay and islands to West. Queen size, very comfortable bed, large desk. The room had a small built in wardrobe to...

Was kept up all night by people partying on ther verandah my last night...

    Went to Thursday Island for work for a couple of nights, was in one of the newer rooms at the back half and really enjoyed the place. The food from the pub was good, nice friendly staff and really enjoyed the trip.

    “Go round the corner to the Jardine Hotel instead. It is run by the same company and offers a bit more breeze and the chance of a view at least. There is also a swimming pool to cool off in and some nice areas to relax in around the pool at the end of the day with a drink.”
    • A double room with another single bed

    “Try to get one of the newer rooms, they are only $15 more but much nicer with a large flat screen tv and split system aircons. Rooms numbered 100 to 300. the older rooms have Rattler Aircons and a small tube tv instead. Room numbers are below 1-30 or so are the older ones and are closer to the bar which could be noisy at times, especially the lower rooms.”
