We arrived a little late and the staff were very friendly checking us in. For $70, the 3 of us fit in very comfortably. We even got complimentary breakfast, so it was very good value for money. Unfortunately dinner finishes at 9pm so we just missed out on the $14.95 steak special (Thursday).

I booked this hotel on line. Last bed available in Townsville due to the races and the footy being on. For the price I wasn't expecting much and when I saw it from the outside I was a bit nervous, its old and tired! But I was surprised. If you are after some generic hotel room then this is not for you but if you are wanting a clean place to spend the night, a great location at an affordable price then this place is for you. Didn't eat there so not sure about the food!

Just spend 12 days at The Allen , the rooms are old but clean the air on was realy great , loved the showers and it was amazingly quit. The food in the bistro was realy good and plenty of it , I realy enjoyed my stay and there was nothing to complain about at all. It is not luxurie but nice and friendly and the staff is very helpfull.

Walking along the strand ...and came across the Hotel Allen ...and saw the breakfast menu outside ...so decided to give it a try ....wished I never did ...ordered the breakfast with the lot, bacon, sausage, eggs, tomotoes, baked beans. hash brown ....(still looking for that hash brown) and thick toast ....(and still looking for thick) $14.95 ....made another mistake and ordered a coffee (long black) don't think she had heard of that one ....and when I saw a staff member leave and shortley return with a takeaway coffee, knew then I was in for a treat ....food very average ...overdone eggs, ...they do offer free coffee from a pot ...maybe should have !!!!
and they offer free juice from a jug .....and when I saw a lond black hair leave the jug to my glass ....I quickly disgarded that ....so no wont be back .......

We had lunch here, the food was ok and well priced but we found two cockroaches scuttering through the resturant! They had a meat raffle for the local surf club which was good, as we won it!
If you want a pub feed give the Seaview or Watermark a try, better location but more expensive.
