Stayed at the Quest for five nights. Fantastic location as Palmer St is just at your fingertips. Asked for an apartment away from Palmer St and was promptly given one. Found the hotel very quiet and staff helpful. Secure parking was excellent and would definitely stay again.

Quest is in a great location and the staff are very friendly. Only downside is the old fashioned set up of the bedroom being on the external walkway side of the building, so everyone passes your bedroom as your sleeping when they come home from a late night. Great views over the marina and would've been a great bonus if... More

Right in the middle of Palmer Street, with the restuarants and entertainment on the doorstep. Excellent accommodation and reasonably priced. Great view of the marina too. Large balconies to provide additional space and catch the breeze.

A centrally located apartment hotel that was ideal for the overnight visit to Townsville. Walking distance to bars and restaurants over the river as well as the bars and restaurants outside the hotel. Free secure parking is great as are the views over the marina from the room's balcony.

Quest is always a reasonable option but the apartments in Townsville were a bit tired and outdated. The bed was large but was two smaller beds pushed together so there was a horrible uncomfortable lump in the middle. The towels were thin and old. The cutlery was sad and aged, the kind of stuff you'd find out the front of... More

Stayed one night in a studio apartment. Room was clean, confortable and well-maintained. Nice balcony overlooking the marina area. Staff on reception are friendly and helpful. Secure off-street parking is very good. Located right on Palmer Street there is a good choice of restaurants if you want to eat out and some conveniently do a charge back to your room... More

Stayed 6 nights at Quest on Palmer Street. We were told they were having a special on the one bedroom apartments for $157/night, usually $260! It was a large spacious unit, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom/laundry combo, kitchen, lounge room and balcony overlooking the marina on Palmer Street. The location is great, so close to eating places, and only a short... More

Affordable, clean, quiet, friendly and secure. Perfect for a business stay in Townsville. Has charging facilities at a few local places ask the team for details. The balcony is great for some air or just to relax, they face east so you can watch the sunrise or relax watching the boats in the afternoon
