Spent a wonderful week here on the Strand in Townsville. Our hosts, Sue & Eddie were superb, lots of laughs & couldn't do enough for us. We had a studio apartment on the third floor overlooking the Strand. Apartments are clean, stylish, well equipped and serviced regularly. Plenty of car parking beneath. Being right on the Strand was a bonus... More

We had an overnight stay at this hotel. We stayed in the courtyard room for access to the pool and BBQ area. The room was well appointed with a kitchenette, large flat screen TV and the usual toiletries. The room was a good size for a studio and clean. The pool was closed due to building works going on next... More

Great service and the room had everything you need. There are some drinks/snacks for purchase in Reception but it is not far to walk to Coles. A great location on the Strand. I found the bed really comfortable. The plastic chair inside was uncomfortable but there were others seats that were fine. The balcony light was not working on my... More

Our room, although on the side, had a fantastic view of The Strand and out to the sea. We were also surprised that it was reasonably priced. The room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. We even had a small balcony which we made use of as we watched the sunset. There were the usual tea/coffee making facilities which... More

A comfy place to stay overlooking the beach. Kitchenette in rooms. Walking distance to CBD, shops and places to eat. Great as a base for day trips to Magnetic Island and surrounding Townsville sights. BBQ and pool for guest use, free parking and friendly staff.

Stayed here for a week whilst working. Did not meet one staff member as I checked in after reception was shut and left each day before it opened. There is a pool with decent sized BBQ area for kids to swim, however with the hotel located right across the road from the water it offers a fantastic view over to... More

I have just returned from a very pleasant four night stay at this property in Townsville. An ideal and idyllic location with a great view of the waterfront and of Magnetic Island from the front. My room had a side view of the water, which as I knew I had booked the last room was a pleasant surprise. The room... More

The position is perfect. Great view from the balcony and a good variety of eateries close by, such as Longboards, Juliette's, Coffee Club and Vitti Cafe. Really flat so easy to walk. Room and bed comfortable and self catering if you would like to cook. Everything clean! Free parking on site as well. A drive up Castle Hill for the... More

I stayed here very recently and would highly recommend. Position,Osiris, position, it was Close to everything, value for money and staff very friendly. I did not have a car for this trip so walking distance to restaurants and coffee shops was important.
