Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Spent a week at the Summit as home base to tour Townsville.
Owners and staff are friendly and obliging , the property is clean , quiet and skirts the CBD.
If there is a problem it is attended to straight away and the rooms have everything you could expect of a motel .
If you meet Russell , give him a pat for us.
If the pool had been heated we would have even gone for a swim :0)
If in Townsville again , we would not hesitate to stay again

Thank you for the review and we're glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I will pass on the message to Russell. Cool weather in Townsville over the last few weeks has made swimming a little chilly at the present time however summer will be here soon. Thanks again. Al and Jeannene

I have stayed at The Summit 3 times now. Significant changes have been made since the current very friendly and helpful owners took over nearly a year ago. The rooms have always been spotlessly clean with plenty of space & importantly, comfortable beds. Hearty home cooked meals are available which is fabulous. Nice pool. Very good value for money. Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms have views.

Hi Leith.
Thank you for taking time to review our motel and yes we have made significant changes in the last year to the motel. We now offer home cooked meals to rooms for our guess who might just like a quiet night at the motel. Anything from a large steak to a light snack is available with a little notice. Looking foward to your next visit to Townsville.

This motel was delightful. Very affordable. The room was sparkling clean and just the right size. It was very quiet at night, and the bed was comfortable. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. I'll definitely stay again the next time I'm in Townsville

My wife and I stayed at this motel overnight on our way to Undara Lava Tubes, and I must say we were very pleasantly surprised at the accommodation provided. The room was spacious, well furnished and spotlessly clean.

We had chosen this motel based on good reviews from previous trip advisors, and we were certainly not disappointed. It is very well positioned and centrally located. If you have not been to Townsville previously take a trip up to Castle Rock which is nearby, for magnificent views.

I would not hesitate in highly recommending this motel to other potential travellers.
