We had a pleasant stay at Summit, good view of Castle Hill, close to all our interests, The Stand, Cowboys Leagues club, restaurants, groceries shops. Tony was hospitable and his cleaning staff were friendly and kept the rooms lovely. Beds was comfy and we'll stay again!! Good walk up the hill too!!

I have stayed here on business regularly over the last 3 years and recently the motel has had a change of management. For the first time my room was not serviced once in 3 days despite the booking listing daily room service. Very disappointed.

I visited on 5/6/7 August 2016. It is centrally located and easy to find. Booking staff were helpful. Unfortunately the management forgot to service my room, which was a shame. It marred an otherwise pleasant stay in Townsville.

Travelling to Townsville regularly on monthly bases. It is a great place to stay, excellent service, clean and tidy rooms, and very friendly staff. Conference room is also excellent, plenty space, with tables , chairs and air-conditioning. It is situated on the hill overlooking the bay and Magnetic Island, Only 15 minutes walking to the Strand. Highly recommended.

I travel to Townsville regularly and always stay at the Summit. They have great service, a conference room, and are always accommodating- even leaving a couple of cold beers in the fridge for when I turn up late at night! The wifi is great, views are amazing and the location is central and only a 10 minute walk to the...

This little gem served as a great pit stop on our way from Rockhampton to Atherton Tablelands (home). The rate was cheap and cheery, but it certainly didn't mean that we were staying in sub standard accommodation. The room was large and airy. The beds (1 x queeen and 1 x single) were super comfortable. The aircon cool and crisp...

This motel is fantastic value for money. We travel to Townsville regularly on Business and we have tried many motels. The Summit is in a great location for us being so close to the Strands restaurants and driving down the other side of the hill you are a minute away from the Cowboys Leagues Club. The owners here are new...
