Great location, badly needs refurbishment
Really great location, close to the strand.. walking distance to everywhere. My room was spacious, comfortable and basic with free WiFi, however the bathroom wasn’t the cleanest with mold on the curtain. The decor reminds me of my grandparents place in the 1980s.The whole place is spoilt by posters with rules plastered everywhere- no parking, no climbing, you’ll get fined for dirty bbq etc. inside the apartment there’s a blunt sign telling guests they’ll be fined for not cleaning up the cups and saucers. Not a friendly welcome for guests and also a warning that some random guests have cleaned the glasses and crockery before you - eww. Unhygienic! Time to refurbish, overpriced.

Good 6.0
We were really disappointed with the bed, it needs replacing as it seemed very soft and low to the floor and not comfortable to sleep in. Also we were there for 3 or 4 days and yet for two people the only bath soap we got were two tiny little packaged bars of soap. Also we were in and out of the room a lot on business and family visits and did leave valuables in the room and cash and were really surprise that there was no "do not disturb" door notice option and on each day our room was entered to clean out the rubbish bin. Very few motels or hotels all around Australia do not have a "Do Not Disturb" notice option on door and really you should have this option available. We didn't realise on the first day this happened and it alarmed at. Nothing was taken of course and we would never suggest the nice people running it would ever do this but it really shouldn't ever be able to occur if you had a "Do Not Disturb" door notice.

A nice place to stay with lots of personality
We visited Australia from the U.S. to see our son on deployment. Every place on or near the Strand was booked but we we able to get a room here. The Yongala is a block from the Strand and we were within walking distance from a grocery store as well as restaurants on the Strand, museums, the ferry to Magnetic Island, and even walked to downtown. The owners are very accommodating and even helped with booking a taxi back to the airport in the wee hours of the morning. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Townsville. There was a mini fridge, microwave, hot water kettle, and toaster in the room. There is also coin operated laundry on site. Unlike hotels in the U.S. there was no hairdryer but there is an iron and ironing board in the room.
