“David and Margo. Very helpful and friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

The Summit is a wonderfully family run happy motel to stay at. Jeannene and Allan were such welcoming hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. We stayed at the Motel with our poodle who played well with the Motel pooch named Russell. The service was great, the rooms very clean and spacious with an adjoining outdoor area for our dog. The location is perfect, it is within coo-ee of everything you need or want to do and the guest laundry was very handy for our long stay. We highly recommend The Summit Motel and will be staying there again.

Found the location to be sweet, within walking distance of nearly everything for the moderately fit or an easy cab ride, if not ! Spent 3 nights and everything was fine. Allan (?) the owner was extremely friendly & helpful , with help for the charging of phones/i-pods etc , advice on where to go and tips on restaurants etc. The rooms were of a good size even after the roll out was added and clean & neat. Wasn't the cheapest as price doubles during the V8 Supercars but all in all a great pick and would gladly stay again.

Room Tip: Go for the first floor if you can as you always get a bit more noise "Downunder" !!!

Thank you for taking the time to review our Motel. We are glad you were happy to sleep on a trundle bed as this V8 Weekend is our peek time and there is a shortage of beds in Townsville for the whole week. Clean and comfortable rooms are our number one priority at our Motel. Thanks again and hope to see you again.

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
