I recently reviewed the Rydges in Townsville, quite positively, and will pay this hotel a similar compliment. It is an old gem, that retains its quality and service For me, that makes it a place to return to, far more appealing than it higher priced pretenders!

I've stayed in a few hotels in Townsville, but I always go back to the Holiday Inn. It is a great hotel and worth the extra money. The rooms are clean and very comfortable, and it's in a great location, being only a short walk from Palmer St and the night life on Flinders St. The Cotters Markets occur right... More

We paid $50 for each extra person EACH night to not even receive extra towels/soaps/shampoos?? We had to ring and get someone to bring us towels and had to share the soap. The room was average. We got to our room and discovered that our "balcony room" balcony was locked and we couldn't get out their due to maintainence. I... More

I stayed for business for two nights. The hotel is known as the "sugar shaker" because of its cylindrical shape and is located centrally on Flinders Street a mere 15 minutes ($20) cab ride from Townsville airport. The staff were really helpful and friendly and there were no problems getting a cab on departure at 6 am. All questions were... More

An older property but clean with great views. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Located right in the city centre with markets outside the door on Sunday mornings. Good breakfast. Lots of good eating places within walking distance, including Palmer street Restaurants. Short drive to the Strand.

On first appearances our one bedroom suite looked beautiful and just as the photos. What the photos don't show is the blearing noise coming from the air conditioning units just below our windows! We had asked for a room as high as possible, and ended up with level 6. I can only imagine the complaints coming out of the levels... More

We stayed one night at the circular Holiday Inn Townsville, as we traveled down the east coast of Australia. We checked in after dinner and left by 7:30 the next day, so we didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel. Our room on the 11th floor was sufficiently big and clean. The balcony door was locked, as they... More
