We stayed at M on Palmer for 1 night on a Saturday as we are locals. We had booked a Studio room and upon check-in we were upgraded to the City Scape Studio which was a nice surprise. This room was on the 9th floor and had a lovely view of the marina. We checked in with Bri who was... More

I had the fortune of staying at this FANTASTIC location for a couple of nights, and I THOROUGHLY enjoyed my stay. Upon making my reservation, they were all out of hotel rooms, so I booked a 2-bedroom apartment. Well, upon arriving, I was upgraded to a 3-bedroom apartment on the 10th floor. The apartment was VERY well appointed and had... More

Because we had a deal through the booking agent, the value for money was great. Located on the restaurant hub in Townsville. No real issues, other than the cleaners not topping up condiments when they clean. Standard modern rooms with good amenities, including dishwasher and clothes washing appliances. Excellent views of the bay & Maggie Island. Fairly quiet. Reasonable service.

Nestled behind a beautifully renovated hotel ( Metropole Hotel) at the end of Palmer Street is what I call the Jewel of Palmer Street. Everything about this hotel is value for money.

I just got back from a week in Townsville and would recommend this hotel. It is in great place and the hotel had great food. The only draw back was the noise from the freight terminal next door and the garbage collection early morning. If you shut the balcony door it was better but I prefer to sleep with a... More
