We booked a 'sea view' room looking across to Magnetic Island only to find 90% of the view is blocked by trees on The Strand. The premises is a refurbished 70's (?) style motel and this really shows in some areas particularly the bathrooms with shower/shower curtains in the bath and a tiny bathroom/toilet. What was most concerning is the... More

If we hadn't paid up front we would leave. When asked about receiving a Remote for the DVD player so we could watch from bed, was told 'it's not a matter of life and death' in a condescending tone,' we don't have one and we don't have a replacement'. Receptionist seemed shell shocked, probably not a very good work environment.... More

I've actually stayed here 1 week every month for the last 9 months and the service, the layouts of the rooms & the location is ideal for me as a business traveller. They are always more than accommodating & the rooms are like a little piece of home. I would highly recommend them to anyone coming to Townsville.

Good for an occasional overnight one night stay conveniently located on the beautifully restored esplanade. At 17.30 we checked in to discover the receptionist was about to shut the desk down and just gave us the room key and left us to it-a bit impersonal and unfriendly. The room was clean and tidy with basic facilities -could not wait to... More

We mentioned this when we booked anyway checked in and the view was minimal you had to lean out and around to see anything. When booking make sure you ask for... More

We stayed two nights at Waters Edge just after Christmas, we had two ground floor Courtyard studio rooms. The rooms were quite spacious and had been recently refurbished. The kitchen amenities were more than adequate and included a bar fridge, microwave and two hot plates, the bathroom was clean and tidy. The advantage of the ground floor studio is the... More
