We recently stayed at the Seagulls Resort in Townsville which is situated about 5 minutes drive from the town centre. The setting is very nice with the rooms being situated around a tropical garden with pool. The pool with the surrounding palms and ferns is very inviting and helps to relax one after the journey upon arrival. The receptionist was... More

Our stay was for only 1 night as we were transiting through Townsville. I chose this accommodation as it is not to far from the airport. As we were arriving on a late flight I had arranged with reception for my in laws to collect our key as they stayed too. There was a little bit of confusion with payment... More

I stayed at the Seagulls resort with my husband for three nights 11th to 14th December. The hotel rooms were very large and spotless, big bathroom and plenty of complimentary toiletries. There were two lovely lagoon type pools which we use every day, and our grandchildren were allowed in even though they weren't staying with us, but only 5 sun... More

Enjoy the sun with plenty of shade. Room size is good and facilities modern. Undergoing upgrades with new owner so can only get better. Pool size is good but water quality a tad murky. No glass in pool area is always a good sign; nice bar area overlooking pool area with friendly staff willing to make off the menu orders!... More

I'm no stranger to this resort (I lived in Townsville for 15 years), stayed, dined and swam there regularly. Recently we had a one night stay, the pool and surroundings are still great though the resort is now dated and in need of a major refurbishment. The staff were friendly and helpful, meals were ok though we ate better for... More

Not really sure where to start! My husband and I came up for my nieces baptism. My mum chose the resort. My dad had stayed here back in 1997 and said nothing had changed. Everywhere needs a renovation and update. Appliances are way out of date, the hairdryers are shocking. The shower and bath both ran at the same time... More

Our room at Seagulls felt a bit like a prison: Hardly any daylight, so even during daytime we had to light the cold fluorescent tube above the desk and room was very basic furnished. Hairdryer not standard at the bathroom, you have to ask for it. Conclusion: we have paid far to much for a room like this.

Older style motel rooms, clean and tidy. When checking in ensure you have a room at the rear, The gardens are well maintained. The restaurant is a little expensive, but the meals are a good size. One bonus is the free WiFi.
