We have stayed here several times and it never disappoints, very comfortable, the bed is comfortable, microwave, 2 burner stove, small fridge, several cafes very close by, as is the shopping centre. Undercover parking and a view of the strand.

Great location to the Strand, cafes and supermarket. Room was clean, comfortable bed and good WiFi. Had everything you need in terms of kitchen. No real view of the water and if you're tall then may not be able to stand up in the shower due to low roof. Bathroom could do with a few updates, looking tired.

First room had a terrible musty smell - no way I could sleep there. Manager was happy to provide full refund, but before we picked another hotel he came back and said he had another room he could offer. This didn't smell so accepted it. Room basically an older motel style room - old shower etc - clean enough and ok for 1 night but better options available.

This is the second time that we have stayed here. The motel cannot be faulted for service and cleanliness. The rooms are spacious with cooking facilities included. Right on the strand it is central to everything and even though it is in a busy location the rooms remain quiet. We will continue to use Waters Edge for any other visits to Townsville.
