Room was on the 12th floor with the most amazing views over the ocean Location is perfect,handy to the stinger nets and Strand attractions,with a lovely balcony. Only moan is the very small parking space,2 nights we had to park in the car park waiting for someone to move. Yes,you can park on the Strand or in the back streets,but... More

Apart from the view which is exceptional, I can only add that the general position affords you many choices of close-by eateries and attractions. A splendid experience each time we stay here to enter our Studio room and lose a breath embracing the 180 degree spectacular outlook; thoroughly recommended.

Love staying at Aquarius. Rooms spacious, clean and comfortable. All Staff very friendly and helpful - greeted you whenever you walked through reception. Close to waterfront, swimming areas, cafes and restaurants. I love the view and being able to access The Strand easily. WiFi worked really well. Will definitely stay again!

The room was decent sized and comfortable - perhaps more pillows required though? 2 for a double bed isn't much.... The bathroom was also decent sized, but the bath itself was very small... The shower occasionally randomly decided to pour out for a minute then stopped again which was annoying in the night. The bathroom bin also did not have... More

The room I stayed in could do with a renovating touch! But after all it was a special. The beautiful view overlooking the Strand and towards Magnetic Island made up for it. Pleasant to sit on the balcony at night watching the harbour lights. Its located at the Strand with easy access to everything one needs. Will go back again.

We stayed in a newly refurbished room. Staff were friendly especially Jen the receptionist. We had daily room service and room was very clean. View from 12th floor was amazing. Spend most nights with going to sleep with balcony doors open listening to waves. Great position. We had just over two weeks there and will be back.
