4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for two nights in February and was not disappointed! Staff were amazing- super friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. Good location, close to many restaurants all within walking distance. Would recommend to family/friends and will definitely be staying here on any further visits to Townsville.

This is the second occasion I have stayed at the Grand Hotel Townsville. Usually I stay with the IHG chain where possible to obtain rewards points however the location, service, and standard of accommodation at the Grand Hotel is second to none in Townsville. The rooms are fantastically appointed and and well maintained. The service provided by the staff is... More

I've stayed here twice now and just can't go past the Grand. Super friendly staff and an amazingly competitive rate at check in! Lovely rooms, both the standard and apartment style. Clean, crisp and with a touch of luxury. The quieter end of Townsville's Southbank with many dining options just below. This is the place to stay!

My husband and I stayed for one night in early March 2015 and were not disappointed. It is perfectly located on Palmer Street so there were great restaurants and pubs all within walking distance, try the Brewery at happy hour and Jam Corner for breakfast. On arrival, we were blown away by the friendliness of the staff. We were offered... More

only stayed one night. The rooms are more like apartments with the bedroom separated by sliding glass. The timber floor was a bit rustic and the bathroom was awkward with two-way doors that clashed. These was a washer/ dryer in the bathroom which might be handy if you had a long stay. Car parking was also awkward - you drive... More

Quick visit this hotel is great....clean, tidy and modern.......but if you want a few days not a great hotel as this hotel really caters for short stays. No service in the hotel what so ever, so a nice quiet afternoon by the pool is without any service, just BYO. Some of the staff we're fabulous and well trained, have to... More

Hotel located right in the middle of the city of Townsville. It provides all the things you need there, staff were very friendly, helpful, in fact, they went all the way out to assist you, it made up everything. While you were away from home, that helps heaps! However, maybe the light in the room was too dark, it gave... More

Stayed 3 nights this week. Had a room with a view and a balcony. Loved it. Can't complain about anything. Room, staff, convenience, location all as we wanted. We could walk to most places and we're happy to come back to our lovely room.

I stayed at the Grand Hotel for a night while in Townsville on business. I found the hotel to be very well maintained, clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and while there was no restaurant on site they were able to recommend very good restaurants nearby. They also assisted by opening the gym early for me. The room... More
