Ridgemont Executive Motel and Restaurant
Ranked #27 of 41 Hotels in Townsville
Reviewed 12 August 2017 via mobile

Average and basic large room 28 on top north eastern level, great views, bed soft for me (wife happy) but ok, all very clean. Shower tap not marked, use top hot tap and wait for hot to arrive. Balmy weather so no need for fan or aircon. Lounge chair/couch would add value. Little in kitchen ware (we came prepared with own picnic basket) Good access to top floor and open verandah with great view out to island and bay, unsurpassed. Great area for evening drinks (ask if BYO) breakfast, basic egg bacon toast comes with $80 promo price. Parking is secure. It is not a luxury motel and price reflects this.
But, it is good value with wifi and Ridgemont is a very well priced motel stay in town with close elevated views over city and the Strand several blocks from the beach front. Manager was friendly as was breakfast lady cheerful. Value for money and will be staying again next time in town.

I stayed at the ridgemont for 3 nights. Very clean tidy room, had an awesome view from the front balcony. And only took a few minutes to walk into the city restaurants. Bosco is an great hotel manager and made me feel very welcome. I highly recommend staying at the Ridgemont

Very, very basic room. Although comfortable and quiet.
No information packs/brochures in the room, e.g. motel menus, tourist information, maps, what to do in emergency etc.
A phone was unplugged and in a drawer? Although room service is advertised.
One blanket in cupboard, although a twin share.
Ceiling fan did not work.
No mini bar as advertised.
We went to the deck to have a pre-dinner drink and enjoy the view. The drinks available were Coke, wine and a handful of beers, one of each different type. We didn't stay long.

Room Tip: Top (2nd) floor would be best view.

The room we had was right at the end of the top floor and had magnificent views of the harbour. The bed was very soft and we ended up sleeping the wrong way around in the bed to avoid doing our backs in. The breakfast was cereal, toast and juice. There was no choice of cereal or bread types, just white bread. The toast was cold and they buttered and put the Vegemite on. I would have preferred a small choice of cereals , choice of bread and to butter and Vegemite the toast my self. Oh, and no choice of juice, just orange. The view probably wasn't worth these issues and I doubt I would stay here again. Positives included decent hot water and water pressure and kitchenette in the room.
