Stayed at the Chifley Plaza, Townsville on a business trip on 1 July 2014 After hearing various reports, about the condition of the hotel, I was some what relieved to find that my room was more that adequate. The room was clean, the amenities good and really provided everything that I required. I don't know if the hotel is a... More

We made 3 requests for our booking and not one was met however the Reception staff were very helpful. The room was basic but the bathroom and large shower good although there was a problem with hot water supply and we had a couple of cold showers. We were at the back with a view of industrial equipment and buildings... More

On the website it said parking was readily available. For a big hotel they only have 9 spaces available after that you are on your own. The street parking is not secure. I was not provided with towels and there were hairs in the bath. The spa and sauna are not working so forget about that. Also I had a... More

Entry into the building is up two steps with no visible alternate or ramp which would be a problem for mobility impaired people. The reception staff were welcoming. The hotel is serviced by two old and tired lifts with stained carpet which smelled. The stained carpet theme continued into the hallway on the fourth floor where I and four colleagues... More

Reception staff very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a two bedroomed family suite. Centrally located to the small city shopping centre (including a Woolworths supermarket), the Aquarium, waterfront district which has a lovely walk along the sea, good restaurants and splash park for children. On the surface nicely renovated but shoddy work....toilet roll holder kept falling off, unfinished painting,... More

From the outside it doesn't look like much, however once inside you are greeted by friendly staff and newly renovated rooms that exceed the price paid. Really comfortable stay and loved the old elevators.

Very friendly staff greeted us on arrival. The rooms were clean and tidy. Checkout time was reasonable. The hotel is located right in the middle of town, which is within easy walking distance of shops, the waterfront and restaurants. Next time we are in Townsville we will definitely be back.

I spent one night in Townsville on business. Very friendly service at check-in. I arrived earlier than expected, around 10.30am and, since my standard room wasn't yet ready, was upgraded to an Executive room. May not work every time of course! The hotel is well located, just around the corner from the central shopping area and mall. Clean and comfortable... More

Not happy- complained to staff who were not really interested and said maintenance guy would be in today they would tell him (8am). When we... More

I was in Townsville for business and didn’t really like this hotel. I have stayed in better hotels in Townsville in the past. This hotel would suit young - partying/ clubbing people that won’t be staying in the accommodation for long. The room I stayed in was clean but it had paint missing in spots and burn stains on the...
