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.

Older style resort, but well maintained, clean.. nice pool..Garden and surrounds are well kept.. not a huge resort but a smaller version of a resort...this was the place to go in it's heyday.. The Receptionist very helpful..enjoyed our brief stay.. the only problem was that our TV kept on making crackling sounds, like a bad cable connection... maybe these and... More

Last minute booking, handled promptly, efficiently and courteous. Queen room very neat, clean with all the trimmings you would expect. Great shower. Good value, absolutely beautiful lush tropical surroundings. We had room service dinner, salmon wrapped in pruschetta with aparagus and chat potatoes and chicken in wild mushroom sauce! Well done seagulls - most enjoyable and adequately priced. On the... More

After paying $189 for a 'garden room' we were given a room that was next to the car park. The bed tilted to the edge from people sitting on it. There were no 'niceties' supplied such as a shower hat. No milk - just 3 tiny UHT tubs. I could go on.

We booked in here after failing to find accommodation earlier in the day. It was dark when we arrived in Townsville, and we drove into the first place we saw, which turned out to be Seagulls resort. A very reasonable price for the room, which was immaculate. We went for a wander around the grounds, and wished we'd arrived earlier.... More

We have visited before and decided to come back, the landscaped gardens are amazing, the staff are friendly. They have a BBQ area and tennis courts and also a restaurant where you can also order room service.

For any groups wishing to hire the use of Seagulls’ conference rooms BE WARNED. We’re a community group, looking to hire a room on a Mon from 4pm-12am. We made it clear that we did not need staff, or service. We would bring our own food even down to our own table cloths and plates and cutlery for a Passover... More

For me this was just an overnight stay for work, but I plan to return for a longer stay. Comfortable and convenient, with a real tropical island feel. It's not far from The Strand and Castle Hill, but still feels secluded and relaxed. But it was the service that I found exceptional. It was so refreshing to be treated as... More

Perfect location for us just a short distance from the strand and also a fantastic park for our son just a block away. Beautiful gardens and pool area. Rooms were refreshing after a long day out. Our only complaint was our bed. Lordy lord it was by far the worst bed myself and my husband have ever slept in!!! They... More
