Great water views. Many cleaning issues with the room and most were fixed when brought to attention of managers. Wifi - far too expensive ...car park lights need fixing. Air conditioner long over due for a clean. Lift is disgusting and doesn't give a good impression. Managers very helpful and prize position for access to eateries. Yes I'd stay again... More

We stayed here a few years ago and decided to give it another try. The Waters Edge is located on The Strand directly across from the beach. The on site managers are very friendly and helpful. A plethora of restaurants are all within easy walking distance as well as the local pubs. The rooms were clean, so no complaints and... More

Disregard any reviews before July 2014. Sue and Eddie have only been managing this place for a couple of months and are going out of their way to make guests happy and comfortable. We had a 'room with a view' and couldn't have asked for anything more. Good value for somewhere to stay 'On The Strand'. We'll go back next... More

I just spent 2 nights at this hotel in Townsville. LOVED it. The hotel is aging well but they have lovely managers that welcome you like your family when you arrive. The rooms are basic stuff but were very clean and comfortable. The car-parking is free and easily assessible. The location is great. You look over the water and the... More

Really clean and friendly hotel right on the waterfront . I think we paid a little extra to have ocean view room but it was worth it. Very friendly manager. Seemed quiet and had good facilities in the room. Tea & coffee, fridge , hot plate & microwave . Virtually next door to some good cafés and supermarket around the... More

To get a self contained apartment for one night for $120 and it be on the foreshore as well, was too good to pass up. We arrived after reception was closed and there was a phone at the door to get the code for the external key safe where our welcome letter and key were in an envelope with our... More

We had a nice apartment at the front of the complex overlooking the beach, a bit tired ,and the extra bed for our son very saggy, but the view made up for it. Excellent secure parking, close to shops and restaurants and over the road from the beach. Nice looking pool too. But the public areas (lifts and corridors) very... More

Myself and a colleague arrived at this motel at 6.45 pm to find you have to ring a booking line to retrieve your key from a safe after hours! After several tense minutes while he searched for both our bookings on the system we were able to get in. So I would recommend not chancing this as he also told... More

For the cost this place offers poor value for money. Unfortunately I booked this place based on what I saw/read online. What you don't see is the staircase you have to climb to get to the reception level - not much fun when you're lugging a 24Kg suitcase! And that's just the start. They advertise that they have wifi. But... More
