Room was average but very tired. It had everything you would need. TV, bed, bathroom, iron, etc. even sink & fridge. However the curtain didn't cover the window so street light and Qld early sun meant my room was lite up all night. The people in the room next to me played the tv blaring until very late in the...

Overall, location is just great. It is situated next to the sea. The Strand offers great dining options and great for walks and the gym is free for clients (check with hotel). A definite choice when I am up in Townsville. Aquarius is also a short ride from the airport, and a short walk from the town centre.

We stayed in this hotel 2nights on december 2014, right after Christmas. Very nice position, directly in front of the ocean with a small but nice balcony. Far 15 minutes walking from magnetic island ferry, 1 hour from castle hill top, 20 minutes from the CBD. Forniture quite old, but room was clean. And staff nice and helpful. The only... More

Aquarius on the Strand in Townsville are strata owned accommodation units so they can vary a little. Units are tired and in need of an upgrade but if your expectations aren't too high then they do offer quite good value for money. Being on the Strand you have some wonderful walks and some pretty significant views from the complex and... More

Stayed here for the New Year celebrations. Great location, unrestricted view of the fireworks on the Strand - BUT the accommodation is looking 'tired & rundown', aircon had no adjustment, pillows were rubbish. kitchenette was a stretch of that term. There are renovations going on around the outside of the building but this is will not be enough to convince... More

The fridge was mouldy I did not use let alone touch the fridge while I stayed. The furniture was very tired and frayed wicker which was now splintering. When I checked out and voicedmy concern about the... More

Having never stayed along the Strand, was unsure of where to stay however happy with our choice of accommodation at the Aquarius. A gentleman who we assumed was the manager allowed us to check in early which was fantastic. Room on level 2 was spick and span and as for the view (wow!). Even though the room was on a... More
