We were very impressed with our visit to Yongola Lodge. The staff were extremely friendly, the lady at the counter was very helpful and kind, the rooms were clean and the overall atmosphere was amazing. Highly recommend. Will definitely be returning.

Yongala Lodge was pleasant, clean and spacious. Yes, the wifi only works on the front verhanda but it's undercover and there are loads of tables and chairs for your comfort. A little noisey but we stayed in school holidays.

Gorgeous grand old wooden house with accomodation out the back. Ask the receptionist to show you the antique furniture. Our group booked an apartment and room that were both really spacious. The smokers loved the balcony in the apartment. The managers let us order pizza delivery to the grand front veranda of the old house to enjoy the atmosphere.

Cheap price. Comfortable and clean room. Very helpful staff if you have any little problem they can and will help you. Cool air conditioning. Wifi not usable in most of the rooms due to distance. Nice pool.

We stayed here for one night in April. When we arrived the lady was very friendly and let us use the WiFi before we had checked in. We had been due to dive the yongala wreck, but due to the weather it had to be cancelled, so we wanted to hang around for an extra day so had to cancel...

Perfect place to stay whilst in Townsville. Not far to walk for some attractions. Beds were comfy and room was a decent size. Pool was beautiful for a swim. The aquarium and museum was about a 10 minute walk.

Stayed here 3 nights in August. Great experience. The staff was very friendly, the room was huge, the location was great, and the price was extremely cheap for non backpacker accommodation in Townsville.

Unfortunately you don't stay in the historic old building at the front of the Lodge, but it certainly does add a lovely aspect to your stay. We really liked our one night here. Clean, very quiet, basic large room and bathroom. We're not fussy travelers so sorry if you want to hear any more details. The reception staff member was...

This property is past its heyday but has a lot of charm. The room was clean, comfortable and had all the facilities necessary. Not being on the ground floor meant having to lug my suitcase up 2 flights of stairs but what the heck! It has a tiny pool suitable mainly for children. There is a restaurant but I didn't...

We had a room with queen and single. Room was clean, beds comfy and linen clean. Shower room clean and ok. Aircon was efficient. I can't rave about the place, but it was certainly ok. Free wifi was only available in a public area which was not aircon and was steamy hot, so not really useable. Our room was on...
