Beautiful historic Queenslander. Tastefully decorated rooms and a wonderful games room. Iva and Russell are the perfect hosts who know how to pamper their guests. Their knowledge of activities & places to see in the Townsville area is excellent. Make sure you have the hot breakfast! You will not be disappointed. Russell's previous vocation skills come to the fore.

Originally built in 1890 as a cattle station family's town house in Townsville, this property was restored over a 4 year period and is now an incredibly welcoming B&B. Nothing is too much trouble. Situated on a slip road off the busy Sturt Road (almost opposite the Bulletin building), between a small church and the choral society, this is a... More

From the moment we met Iva we felt immediately comfortable and at ease. Not only were the rooms stylish and comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious and healthy. Iva bent over backwards to ensure we wanted for nothing. If we came home early she would have a cup of tea and cake waiting for us, she even bought our favourite tea... More

A very warm welcoming let you feel like coming home. Iva and Russell were very kind and helpful. The house and our room were so nice and lovely, nothing was missing, very tidy. The breakfast was served with plenty of fresh fruit. Amazing! We enjoyed our stay very much. Great!

Our short stay at Classique was perfect. Beautiful old house with plenty of charm, clean and comfortable with everything you could want. Russel and Iva were so helpful, even so far as giving us a lift to the airport including a scenic trip up the mountain. Breakfast was superb - I don't think I've seen so much varied fruit. Highly...

We stayed two nights at Classique and were made to feel so welcome by the hosts. They were very friendly and gave us recommendations for restaurants and helpful information on getting around Townsville. The house is enormous and has been beautifully refurbished to offer all the facilities guests expect, but still preserves its character. We were given a room upgrade... More

We stayed here in February after seeing the reviews on tripadvisor, and were not disappointed. We were in the middle of a road trip from Brisbane to Cairns and picked Classique out as night to spend out of the campervan.
