Middle of nowhere

Arrived just before check-in closing at 2000 hours and almost drove on to Townsville as nothing was open, all lights were off and no obvious check-in desk. Drove around the cabin/caravan park loop and a bloke came out with a torch. Took me to hotel to check-in (all closed and locked up) then when I went to my cabin it had unmade beds etc. Had to go find him again and get another cabin. Wotif indicated only two available but nearly all were empty. Cabin itself okay, but old and bit rundown. Hot shower and bed pretty comfy. Not the way to end a nine hour drive...

Nice cabins

Was a little difficult to find but cabins were nice. Bathroom could have done with a good clean and empty toilet roll changed but other than that it was fairly clean. Would stay again.

Pros: separate section of sleeping area from kitchen dinning living area.
Cons: check and give a good wash to kitchen goods.
Location: our three boy (17,14 & 10yrs) enjoyed playing ground which is near by facility.
very comfy queen size bed. newer or clean kitchen and bathroom cabinet. but not clean cutlery and tea towel made me disappoint.

Quiet location, clean and tidy.

Pros: Price and located on the highway
Cons: Ceiling fans to help cool the room and circulate the A/C on hot days.
Quiet location, clean and tidy. Only issue was the A/C struggle to cool the room due to the heat outside. No fans and only 1 A/C. No pool area but otherwise a food place for overnight accommodation. Comfortable beds and lounge area. Spacious and good sized. Worth staying at again if driving through again.

Quiet, clean and great food.

Pros: Very Clean. Quiet. Stones-throw from local pub with great food.
Cons: TV should be mounted in front of bed instead of in the kitchenette.
Location: Site of Hotel Brandon pub. 10mins drive from the beautiful town of Ayr.
I accidentally booked this hotel thinking it was in Townsville only to find out it is an hour south in Brandon and I'm glad it happened. The hotel is very clean and quiet, it really shows that the owners take great pride in this place as the pub which is also part of the hotel was also very clean and well kept. The food is typical pub food but priced very well ($17 snitzel) and tasted great. The rooms are a good size with plenty of privacy. Did I mention clean? probably the cleanest hotel I've stayed at. If given the choice of staying in Townsville or being forced to drive an extra hour to stay at Hotel Brandon, Hotel Brandon would win hands-down.

Lovely staff who were very helpful. Meal purchased from hotel was great and reasonably priced. You could also take it back to your unit. The units were clean and roomy.
