At the Waters Edge by the waters edge.”

The great location, the staff members and the price of the accommodation.

Our stay here was superb and made doubly so because of the wonderful staff, particularly the effervescent, Sue, who is everyone's friend and assistant advisor. The Strand is a marvellous walking domain and this accommodation site is so central to it all. You could not do better in Townsville, nor any city, for that matter, given its location and price.

Great stay”

We had two Courtyard Studios for 5 nights in late September. Great rooms - bathrooms a little aged but still very functional (parents stay in a different room a couple of days earlier with a refurbed bathroom). Rooms clean and kitchen well stocked with cooking essentials. Right on The Strand - heaps of restaurants & cafes. Coles just a five minute stroll away. Convenient to everything. Pool area great. BBQ area is a fantastic idea - makes cooking easier. Has secure parking available. All staff were pleasant and very helpful. Laundry facilities available - $3 per wash. Clothes airers in the room.

Great location”

The hotel is in a great location on the Strand, close to parkland and cafes and restaurants with Bayview looking over the sea. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms very clean. However, it is dated and badly in need of a refurbishment. The sofa bed was a torture rack and impossible to sleep on. The bathroom was lacking towel rails which surely is a basic requirement. Having said that, I would stay there again as it represents value for money.

Courtyard room was a brilliant size & quiet. Bathroom was very clean, but a bit tired. That said, having stayed in another room a few days before we know they are being updated. The location is great, especially if you don't have a car - close to eating places, supermarket & shops. Taxi fare from the airport was just under $20 & under $10 from the railway station. The Strand is brilliant for walking or just sitting & watching the world go by, including the nesting curlews.

Great spot”

My partner and I stayed here for a week. The motel is in the most perfect spot on the strand, you are close to everything and is so easy to get to. Our room was beautiful, the bathrooms are a little outdated but the little deck and size of the room made up for it. We loved the BBQ and pool and everything was so clean. We definitely will be back.

Good value great service”

We stayed at the water's edge for a week. The room was spacious and had a basic kitchenette. The bed was comfortable and there was a usable balcony and even the complimentary tea coffee and milk was refreshed each day. Good air conditioning was easily controlled. The staff were so friendly and helpful it made out stay stress free. You can hire a pool towel for the week and we made use of a reasonable size pool complete with sunbeds. The location is good, easy to get to the city centre and Magnetic Island ferry. The are plenty of places to eat very close by although not all are open every day. I would definitely recommend this place.

Very pleasant stay- would recommend”

Great location on the strand, we walked to dinner and breakfast locally which was great. Building is an older one and hallways reflect this but the room had been redecorated to make it more modern which was nice. Good sized room- we had a portacot and there was plenty of room for this. Very handy to have the kitchenette when travelling with a baby. Small balcony which overlooked the pool, neither of which we used. Aircon worked well, comfortable bed, quiet room even though we were beside the lift. Great location and good value, would recommend and would stay again next time we visit.

Great location, just on the Strand within a walk of everything. Good size room and bathroom. Comfy bed and functional kitchen all with soft tones and relaxed feel. A little balcony complements the room with a lovely view of pool, depending on where you are. Not heated, a bit cold to swim. Bbq area and outdoor setting area at front where you can watch passers by..

This hotel is definitely suitable for the budget conscious traveller. While my room was clean and of an overall nice standard , the appearance of the room definitely detracted from heavily stained carpets . My room offered some view of Townsvilles strand & ocean and had a functional kitchenette facility .
