Absolutely most comfortable accomodation I have stayed in . Well done Quest Clean, nice view of marina and so relaxing and centrally located to the dining areas. My stay was too short and will definitely stay again. Quest offer a grocery shopping service fantastic idea and also a continental breakfast option in reception also a brilliant idea for single travellers

Quest Townsville is ideally situated in Palmer St., South Townsville. Close to City Centre and good eating places. The rooms are very clean and modern. Two negatives about the rooms:- 1. Still have old fashioned key locks, with tag, not modern swipey cards. If you lose your key, will cost you approx. $500-00 to have lock replaced and new keys.... More

I stayed in quest for 3 nights for my sisters wedding. Was in a convenient location for everything we needed and is definitely great value for money. The lovely lady downstairs was very understanding when I asked for extra shampoo and conditioner to get the 10 tones of hairspray out of my hair that was superglued together from the night... More

Visited Townsville to attend a sporting event. The hotel is in a good location being on Palmer Street. There is an abundance of quality restaurants within walking distance. Short walk across the Victoria footbridge to the Townsville CBD & the tourist information centre which was very handy. Clean & well appointed room with a nice view over one of the... More

I choose this place as I had a dinn meeting in Palmer St. For $140 I thought it was reasonable price. However parking is awkward to say the least, check-in I was greeted very indifferent the room was OK for the price however not clean and absolutely putrid smell. I won't return and prefer the convenience of a motel where... More

Stayed at this serviced apartment for 2 nights midweek. The location is convenient to shopping and some sights. Check-in was very polite and prompt, and details correct. The rooms are very large, with a small kitchenette, and washer/dryer facilities in the rooms. There is no mini-bar or room service though. There was one television in the sitting room, but no...

Not on the Strand but a great location. A great selection of restaurants and bars are just out the door. I have never stayed at a Quest hotel before and was very impressed. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was roomy and had everything. Kitchen, laundry, large bathrooms, comfortable beds, free internet, pay TV, great views (from the... More

A 7 day stay. On arrival was told I had an upgrade. Hardly! Was put in a disabled fitted bathroom, so when using the shower the whole bathroom got completely wet (no screen/curtain). Some of the towels supplied were very thin shouldn't be in use. On two occassions had to request toilet paper. Bed comfortable and great range of restaurants... More

I'm familiar with Quest. This is not a good one. Room was clean and comfortable with a nice view of the marina. Walls are paper thin and you can hear every move from your neighbors. Car parking an issue if the is a conference in town as there was during my stay. Plenty of good restaurants within a few steps.... More

Hi Sharky, I'm very glad to hear you enjoyed the newly refurbished room, views and location. We do have limited secure car parking onsite at the hotel but as you mentioned when town is full all the hotels are overflowing onto the street and it can make finding a spot difficult. If you stay with us again and the car... More
