I read the reviews about noise from construction & trains, this didn't bother me, but the noise from neighbouring units did. Apartment is not near anything, it's a bit creepy walking around, but a short walk into town (daytime). Room was not serviced in our 6 day stay, I was able to wash them in the machine in the unit....

Comfortable beds, clean apartments, friendly staff and modern furnishings. Central location and close to public transport but building is nice and quiet and secure. Highly recommended for those wanting a spacious place to call home for a few days.

We stayed in the large 2 bedroom + study room - offered to us as no additional charge - and we enjoyed the amenities and room. We were in Townsville for a long weekend and hosted a baby shower in the conference room at Holborn. The staff kindly managed to put all 3 rooms booked, on the same level as... More

We stay here quite often and are usually happy with our stay However our last two stays have been a different experience. Our room during our last stay was infested with ants! They were crawling everywhere- bathroom floor, mouldings lining the door, on our bed! It was disgusting! We were there for 1 night so we did not bother reporting... More

Our map didn't have Kingsway Place on it and the alternate address wasn't any use as it covered just about the whole of Flinders St. West. Then there was pretty poor signage to the Reception even after we found Kingsway Place. This new Hotel is built in the middle of an old railway yard which is now a massive development... More
