On Bowen Road not far from Bruce Highway turn off on the Southside of Townsville. Clean and comfortable and one of the first lot of hotels along Bowen Rd travelling towards the city. Easy access to JCU, Hospital, cbd, and laverack all ten minutes drive. $135 for a room with 2 x double beds. Good sized car parks.

This is the motel at which we chose to stay when in Townsville because the rooms are clean, comfortable and affordable. The Management and staff are always willing to assist in whatever way they can, nothing is too much effort to ensure your stay is enjoyable.

Not grand but a nice cosy place to stay esp at short notice. Very friendly staff who were always happy to help. Stayed in a room for four near the back so nice and quiet. Had a fridge and electric fryer. Another bonus was the free laundry area- 2 washing machines and a dryer and some lines outside which helped a lot (though could use a cleanup). Not sure that the room got cleaned and had to ask for new towels and took the rubbsh out myself tho I didnt mind (though in saying this I talked to the Mgr who asked if I needed anything after the fact). They have a small gym and pool which I didnt use but looked okay to use. There's a busstop just outside and a petrol station around the corner.. a supermarket 15mins walk down the road. Townsville also now has uber so that's a plus! They have parking, air condit and foxtel available too. One downside was that other patrons were smoking around the area which... is ew. Overall great comfy stay and probably would use again if needing to.
