We arrived at the Ridgemont to a very friendly welcome, even being picked up at the airport by their shuttle. The motel itself is located about 5 minutes walk behind the CBD so it benefits from cooling breezes in the hot weather. Our room was comfortable with crisp, clean linens, fridge, plenty of hot water and wide screenTV. WiFi is...

I am pleased that you enjoyed all aspects of your stay (cleanliness, location, customer services, facilities, and comfort level). It is great that you found our WiFi is an excellent signal.

This simple hotel is very central and has the most amazing view. The rooms are clean and provide adequate comfort. Waking up to the view of Magnetic Island was a real treat. All for $80 per night is a real bargain!! There is a restaurant that we didn't eat at however several locals said it is very good.

Well what can you say about a breath taking view of the Strand and Magnetic Island and to boot, extremely quiet. The food was excellent given that the food in Townsville is only so-so. The bed and the room are comfortable as you would expect.

We were surprised at how good this very reasonably priced Motel was! Easy to find sitting above the city - very quick drive to the main shopping and business district - with fabulous views over the City and Ocean. We didn't have a room with a view but as both the pool and the dining area afforded lovely views it...

We traveled last minute to Townsville, and were given an excellent motel room which was by far the cheapest in Townsville. The rooms are basic motel style rooms, but were large, well equipped, clean and comfortable. The owners were really lovely and accommodating. Nice and close to town, with breathtaking views out over the city and ocean, we unfortunately didn't...

Just an overnight stay and service was excellent! very friendly people that go out of their way to help you! Tidy,clean rooms and great view from restaurant. Walking distance to shops, about a half hour walk to the strand but do have to climb a hill on the way back! Highly recommend staying here! :)

New owners ready to accommodate. Great recommendations by hostess. Walking distance to esplanade. Eat here instead of that terrible Harold's Seafood. Restaurant has fantastic views worth price of room easily.
