“V8 Racing”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Motel was perfect for my stay during the V8 Townsville races. Other motels close to the town and track put their prices up ridiculously. The Banjo Paterson has great hosts who understand the needs of the guests and provide great advice on where and how to get around. Buses to the race were 50 metres away and shops up the road for the essentials. Louie and Chris organised a BBQ for all the guests who had similar interests in the races.

Our stay at the Banjo Paterson was enjoyable and we loved the friendly service and smiling Louie and Chrissy. The rooms were clean and it's good to see a bail of hay going to the needy farmers due to our stay. Will go back next time we're in Townsville to see the footy, loved our stay.

PS, Louie can cook a great Rump Steak.

Room Tip: Loved our nice firm matress

This place is ok. There is nothing special about it but nothing terrible either. It's fine for an overnight stay. Rooms and bedding clean. Few minutes walk to supermarket and places to eat. I would stay there again.

Passing through on way to Cairns. Staff very helpful and accommodating. Room was adequate, good pillows and clean. Good shower. Meals in their restaurant were good but also in walking distance to alternatives.
