as we come to townsville on a regular basis for medical treatment we have tried a few places unfortuately we booked through one of the online sites and requested a room with views over the river what we got was a room overlooking the back of ribs and rump kitchen with there exhaust fan spewing out smelly fat, when i questioned it was told "we make no gaurentees of what room you get" and anyway we have a busy weekend with a sports carnival in town and everything is taken! the room we got was nice, clean and roomy pity about the rooms view, we also could still hear some of the street noise where we were, and just a note considering the cost of TV now adays why such a lousy tiny one in the room. good location for access to many livelly eateries, and access to motel good but your checkin paperwork is over kill, never had that before, you have all our details when we booked online why go through it all again when we arrive?, would we stay again not sure about that not gaurenteed to get what we pay for is poor business to just give you what they choose well we are the customer and i am sure the many other motels would be happy to give us what we ask for !
