A comfortable room in the middle of Townsville. Close to buses and easy access to most areas of Townsville., the motel offers clean comfortable rooms. The hosts are very friendly and very accommodating for guests arriving in late from out of town and for those with pets. Plus, some of the money from the room goes towards helping our Australian...

The room was back from the road and unaffected by traffic noise. Hosts were very friendly and ready to give helpful advice on alternative places to eat as their own restaurant was closed for renovation.

Did a room upgrade without any problems. Hosts were very friendly and gave advice on where to eat and attractions to look at. I liked the theme of the motel and that they are helping out cow cockies in the west with donations. Will be using them when I go back there.

Nice Motel. Nice people, and easy to find and access in Townsville. Stay a couple of nights as we had a friends wedding to attend to. Our arrival was a little late than expected but the staff catered for that.

We wanted a weekend away but what about our beloved babies. 'No problem, said the owner bring them as well'.

Thank you for the exceptional service. After having a bad experience with another 'pet friendly' hotel in Townsville, we were recommended to Banjo Pattersons. The rooms were affordable, extremely spacious and very comfortable , the staff were outstandingly accommodating but best of all, our beloved dog was more than welcome. Not only was our dog allowed in the room with...

We stayed 6 days to attend the Australian V8 Supercar meeting. On the Saturday and Sunday we only had to cross the road to catch the bus which took us to the racing track which was very convenient. The room was comfortable and the meal we had at the restaurant was very good. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
