Clean hotel good food. Breakfast was outstanding. Pub meals cheap and beers cheap. Look it's pricy compared to mainland but had to be expected. Staff helpful and friendly with good stories about the area.

Work commitments were the reason I went to Thursday Island. The locals certainly know how to charge as there is a shortage of accomodation so they ask top dollar for substandard accomodation. I checked in, went to my room - NO window. Went to reception re this - ah sorry last room, can't help you. Do I need to say...

Enjoyed lunch here with a few mates; beer was cold and standard pub fare was fine and quick to be delivered. Open and breezy, it's a nice place to take time out in a hot day, and the outside seating has ocean views that are a nice accompaniment to any stop.

The Grand Hotel is very very clean with a wonderful view across the jetties to the other islands. We had a verandah room and enjoyed seeing the boats come in and out and the school children arriving from the outer islands. The included breakfast was 5 star and the pub meals at night were large. Beautiful place, wonderful people. Everyone...

We only sat and had a drink here. Great view of the water. Didn't eat but the place was spotless. There is also a restaurant attached. The menu looked great, however, didn't get the opportunity to try.

We visited TI for the day and a local recommended the Grand Hotel for a seafood lunch. We chose the grilled barramundi advertised at $19.50 on the board but we were charged $23.50, I queried it but was told that was the price. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The barramundi was disappointing especially given the location. It was...

I spent quite a bit of time here on a short 4 day trip to TI. The Grand was right next door to my sister's workplace. So while she was busy I made some new friends and enjoyed the hospitality. The staff make this place and I had a few good laughs with the efficient Ben who can carry more...

I can highly recommend this hotel particularly if you can get a room with a balcony overlooking the harbour. The room was spacious, clean and had all the basics and service was very friendly and helpful. Meals in the bar downstairs were also good and reasonably priced. Surprisingly high standard of accommodation given its remote location and better than just...

Spent one night on Thursday Island and wish I had time to spend a few more days to reply explore the place properly. We stayed in an ocean view room with a beautiful view of the harbour, a short walk from the ferry terminal that brought us from Horn Island. The grand is an older style place but our room...

We were doing Cairns and needed to do a trek to Thursday Island. It has been on my "must-list"since whenever. Just the name alone conjures up a need to visit, no?. Room was comfy with for an overnight stay, with air-con perfect and staff lovely. If the idea of resorts are on your mind.. forget it. This is a remote...
