“GREAT PET FRIENDLY MOTEL”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Everything was super great ... excellent customer relations from the time of phone reservations to check-in; the Manager / Owner Tony was super dog & people friendly; the very large room was spotless and well equipped (TV, MW, kettle & toaster), the Q/S bed was super comfortable; the linen was fresh, crisp and had a 'new-feel'; and the rooms were well maintained. Likewise so too were the gardens ... plenty of green lawn for my dog to run (on his lead). Definitely one of the best 'Pet Friendly Motels' I have stayed in. This motel is 10kms from the city on the south side of Townville ... it is right on the Bruce Highway however the road noise wasn't a problem (I felt it was peaceful from 10pm-8am) as I slept very well. The room rates were excellent ... and there wasn't a surcharge for having my dog with me. This motel had absolutely everything I needed for a stop-over so I thoroughly recommend for those travelling with well behaved clean dogs (I am sure Tony doesn't need the other sort). And if you don't have a dog ... this is still an excellent stop-over choice. Thank you Tony ... I will definitely be staying on my way back north in August.

Reviewed 20 July 2013

Throughout the whole process from reservation to checkout was outstanding. They offered great facilities including outdoor cooking kitchen. The Managers and Owners went above and beyond to help us out as we stayed for a week while we looked for a rental as we relocated to Townsville. The gardens are well kept and its quite peaceful, a great vibe all round. The beds were very comfortable also. We would recommend this motel highly its worth the money and experience.
