I would have loved to give seagulls a great review and to fair the staff were very helpful and the pool was great. But... as some people have noted seagulls really is more a motel than a resort. The rooms are small, dark and the owners are far from generous when it comes to providing any comforts (eg. No salt... More

Myself and several friends stayed for one week. The gardens were kept to an impeccable standard and it felt like a tropical Forrest. Plenty of wildlife present. The food was absolutely delicious, and was served very quickly. On Sunday and Monday night they offered a thai buffet for $26 which was great value but very very delicious too. Definitely on... More

Seagulls is a hidden tropical oasis in the heart of Towsville. I have stayed here many times with my family and will definitely be back! It is great value for money especially with a large family. Their family rooms have a double bed and 2 sets of bunks, as well as a kitchen where we cook our own meals. I... More

We have been going to seagulls for more than 20 years. The restaurant had historically been of a very high standard - a la carte ....... Tonight ....... 3 Bain Marie with some deep fried chicken, curry and rice and a couple of pieces of coffee cheese cake on a tray ....... 8.39pm the waitress approaches us and the other... More

Mixed experience. Great location, old rooms, old box aircon, fuzzy Austar and a cheap tv. Some staff were exceptional, others had a bit of an attitude. I do love all the greenery and the layout of the complex though. Future potential lays ahead if they ever decide to revamp the rooms, fittings and adjust staff attitudes to be more friendly... More

I was disappointed with Seagulls, it seems like they cut corners all over the place. Some of the staff were fantastic, but some were absolutely awful and really did not want to help you at all. The breakfast is worth skipping (The Odyssey on the Strand is the place to go in Townsville) as the selection was pretty limited, the... More

I recently had cause to book a small conference room at Seagulls for a full day. My inquiry was promptly dealt with and I received detailed information on the facilities and rates applicable to the room hire. During a visit to confirm the booking I discussed my requirements with Greg McVinish, the conference and events sales manager, and we agreed... More

Booke at last minute and stayed in family room. The set up in the room doesn't give much privacy but otherwise nice room. The resort facilities were nice. Pool was beautiful and had two section so one was shallow enough for kids. Service was nice and friendly as well

My daughter and husband book a two bedroom apartment at seagulls and discovered on their arrival that what they had paid for was one room with a double bed and two lots of bunk beds at the end of the room. Very disappointing. The room was near a public area and very noisy. They were looking forward to the trip... More

Had dinner there with my hubby, we had scollops for the entrée they were a bit rubbery. For main we had the duck with vegetables and salmon. Only a average meal for the money spent. I would say its a poolside restaurant. The service was good.
