Reviewed 28 October 2013

We had a great 3 night stay, the couple who have just taken over as new mangers that week were wonderful, friendly, helpful and very approachable. The room was clean with nice view, comfortable bed and linen. The self contained unit only had microwave but just a jump across the road there are BBQ facitilites available on the beach. Great service! Would definitely stay again.

The family room served us well as we got in late from a flight. The room had one large double and two single beds. Whilst the room's furniture was comfortable and new the bathroom was in its original state but was very clean and adequate. The hotel is located at the quiet end of the strand and is serviced by three eateries close by.The hotel is located across the road from the beach and rockpool.Our room had coffee making facilities.

We got one of the upgraded waterfront units and it was clean, tidy and a pleasant experience. The room was smaller but quite adequate for our needs. The wifi is adequate if all you need is web access.

The location is at the northern end of the esplanade and a car is required to access Townsville or the shopping centers.

Overall a good stay.

Room Tip: The waterfront unit suited us.

The plain appearance of the Shoredrive Motel hides a recently renovated, spacious and comfortable motel, located along The Strand which is immediately on the waterfront, but at the far end away from the busiest part, meaning its quiet. Our family room comfortably fit 3 adults with a queen and two single beds. If you need to cook then perhaps look for an apartment hotel as there's only a fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster available, all that we needed for a continental breakfast but not for a chef! No bath but renovated bathroom with large shower (big enough for 2)
and separate toilet again works well for families. Our room was furthest away from reception so wifi was a little weak but at least included for free. Restaurants are in walking distance back towards centre of town with a cafe breakfast/ lunch two properties away and surf club opposite. Will be back next diving trip....

Room Tip: If you want quiet look for rooms 24/25 or 29/30.

My mother daughter and I stayed for two nights in a wonderful room. We had a queen bed and a single which was perfect for us. The hosts were simply lovely, very informative and we received a very warm and friendly welcome. It was close to two decently priced restaurants and within walking distance to the busier section of the strand. The female host ( I'm so sorry we didn't catch your name) helped us out of an awful bind with needle and thread for some last minute wardrobe malfunctions, thank you so much for that we truly appreciated it. The room was a very good price and has everything you could need for a short stay. A nice big tv, tea and coffee making facilities and a very good sized bar fridge for our water and snacks. The pool was great and just what my daughter ordered. Plus FREE WIFI!! We were extremely happy with that :) the bathroom look recently refurbished and was very modern and the water pressure just perfect, I think the only problem I had was no where to put my clothes whilst I had a shower and that it a very very minor observation. Thank you for making our stay stress free and enjoyable xoxo

We stayed for one night last night. The rooms were quite tasteful and look like they have been recently renovated. Bathroom was modern and very clean. The bed was slightly hard but still comfortable. The location is right on the beach but it is quite a considerable walk up to places to eat. Rooms were a little noisy but nothing more than what would be expected in a motel. A bit quieter would have earned a four rating rather than a three. Ear plugs helped. Wifi was included in the price. Would stay again.
