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

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.

We recently returned to Townsville for another visit and of course booked into our favourite accommodation house. Surprise, surprise a new management team was in place and we quickly became known to them as repeat customers. Sue and Eddy are the perfect "mine hosts" being helpful but unobtrusive. They did draw our attention to the extensive refurbishing that had occurred... More

You could not get a better location than this hotel, right in the centre of the strand with beautiful views and plenty of eatery and entertainment options around. The room was clean, large and comfortable. The reception were friendly and helpful. Definitely a great place to stay while in Townsville if you want to be amongst the action.
