Beach House, The: Location, location, location

This is just a basic motel, nothing to write home about in terms of accomodation standards, etc. Most important comfort feature is that it is air conditioned, which is a must in Townsville. Service is friendly and familiar. The restaurant offers a good value breakfast. Rates are very reasonable.

You can't beat the location, on the strand in Townsville which is absolutely beautiful. There are great views from the restaurant. You will be on the strand in a minute after leaving your room and the magic starts there.

Transit Centre Backpackers: Backpackers

Service at the desk when we checked in was a bit slow, and we had to fill in 2 almost idential reservartion forms for the one joint room, which was a little annoying (I think they may employ other backpackers as staff too and be training some).
Being part of a transit centre, I hadn't expected this place to be much more than a place to crash at the end of an exhausting day, but it was really good as a backpackers in its own right and I'd stay there again.

Funky bright coloured rooms, good cond bathrooms with plenty of showers (sep womens and mens rooms)
Huge 2 very spotlessly clean and new looking dining areas, views from balcony of dining room over Townsville to boats at harbour. New cond kitchen, all also very clean.
The only backpackers I've been in with a jacuzzi in the dining area!
Large tv room with brand new looking couches.
Great info avail downstairs at reception, and Magnetic Isl backpackers & trip bookings done free of charge (as at most places except official booking offices, we found).
Free courtesy bus leaves several times a day from the Transit Centre/Backpackers to the Magnetic Island ferry terminal. Very handy.
Pub on each corner, restaurant in Transit Cente (and tour booking office), strip of coffee bars around the corner. Only 5 mins walk across river bridge to Mall.
$17 per night for dorm rooms is a very good price.
