My wife and I had a dinner to attend in Townsville and chose the Grand because it was close to the city so one of our Daughters could sleep over as well because she happened to have a hens party that night in town. I read the reviews and noted the apparent parking issues and ended up booking and paying... More

Stayed in one bedroom apartment for 4th floor overlooking Palmer Street. Good facilities in the room and plenty of space. Although facing a busy street, could not hear any street noise at night. Easy walking to plenty of restaurants and about ten minutes from the Magnetic Island Ferry Terminal. Would definately stay here again.

Arrived late in Townsvile. From the moment we got out of the car, Palmer Street was buzzing with the noise of people laughing and socialising. Staff were friendly and thoughtful. Also helped with food options. Room was very large, clean and had a king bed and balcony. Bathroom was lovely. I would stay here again due to staff, accommodation standard,... More

The Grand is located in a strip of hotels and eateries in Palmer Street. We were spoiled for choice of where to dine in walking distance of the hotel. The hotel is not as grand to look at as its name suggests but is nonetheless very comfortable and the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. There are some lovely touches... More

We don't often treat ourselves to a night out in the city, but said what-the-hell and booked a night at Grand Hotel Townsville to see if it would live up to its reputation as the best accom on Palmer Street. Our one-bedroom apartment was spotless, spacious and had a great view of Castle Hill - the balcony was the perfect... More

We booked one of the one bedroom apartments for one night stay August 15, 2015. We were given room 356 and it had a very large balcony, as it was a corner apartment so it went slightly around the side. We were also the first rooms on our side nearest the elevator. We were also facing the Oaks/Ribs and Rumps... More

Well located in South Townsville, near river and lots of eateries. The hotel does most of the basics well. Very good shower, but the air-conditioning was hard to manage to overcome the stuffiness. Breakfast provided nearby.

We were here for a few days so it was great that town was just across the bridge and there were several good restaurants just around the corner. There was a good Fish and Chip shop just down the street to. Rooms were big with a lounge and separate bedroom some rooms have washing machines in the kitchen others are... More

We stayed here last weekend, we received a very warm welcome, the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The bed was so comfortable the room was a great size and very airy. We would definitely stay here again.

Back again, stayed here last June and now back as the beds are very comfortable, the staff are friendly and the rooms are very tidy. Mini bar is also very good and the location on Palmer St to access restaurants and pubs is great. Would definitely return.
