Last minute booking for us. Great location, clean room but a little smelly! Wifi only available on front veranda of property which is inconvenient and out of step with most other types of accomodation. Ok for one night. Staff friendly.

We stayed for 5 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The staff are exceptional and are so welcoming, vivacious and just beautiful people. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable and provide all the comforts one needs whilst on holiday. Yongala Lodge is so close to the Strand and all that Townsville has to offer. It is Pet friendly and...

We spent 1 night in this hotel. Location is great and directly at the promenade. Rooms are clean and alright for 1 night. It´s a bit tricky to get your luggage into the upper floors, but in the end it worked well for us.

We stayed for a week at the Yongala, they put us on the top floor (there are no lifts) but not really an issue, they had a relief manager Linley who was just lovely and helpful as was his wife and a lovely dog. The room was large, large enough for a king bed but there was a queen size...

Well positioned hotel & reasonable prices, clean rooms ours had a kitchen area and a balcony. Carolyn the relief Manager was helpful and friendly which made our stay even more enjoyable would definitely recommend a stay here you get exactly what you need for a mid budget hotel.

I have stayed here many times, it provides everything I need & I think it represents good value for money. It's not five star, probably two or three star, but I choose it over more expensive places. The first thing to mention is the accommodation itself. This is not in the charming old Queenslander building that's used in advertisements, though...

This is a super place to stay. Fryer St is at right angles to The Strand so you are only 50m walk to The Strand beach yet don't suffer the inconvenience of staying right on The Strand with its traffic noise, other motels noise, noisy pedestrians etc. The Lodge itself is historic- the motel rooms are behind the Lodge in...

Pluses- nice and close to the Strand, easy walk to lots of restaurants. Nice and quiet. Large room size and bathroom, plenty of hot water. Staff friendly and helpful in recommending options of where to visit and eat. Free parking and wifi, however wifi only works on the verandah. Small pool, great to cool the kids down. Negatives- if you...
