Spectacular views, every room looks out over the beach at Magnetic Island. The room is a good size, we were a group of three adults. The staff were very friendly, professional and helpful. There is no restaurant on site, but there are plenty close by. All in all, very clean and well turned out establishment. We will definitely stay there... More

Value: excellent Staff: helpful, polite lovely Accomidation: Comfortable View: Exceptional Room Service: Rembering that this is supposed to be a FOUR star hotel, if you stay for a week, you don't get 'daily room service.' Hang on, you don't even get 'half weekly room service.' If you want that, you are asked to pay extra. Are you kidding me? Be... More

We recently stayed here for two nights and thoughly enjoyed it. Even the rooms are small it was very comfortable for two persons and the room and the whole complex was very clean and the staff were very professional & helpful. The view was fantastic we were on the 11th floor. Would stay there again.

Some may say the rooms are small but if you want somewhere to lay your head in a great location on the esplanade in Townsville then this is the place. We really enjoyed our stay there and would love to go back sometime

Spent two nights in a unit on the 4th floor. The unit was small, but adequate. Had a small kitchenette with a fridge and microwave. The bed was comfortable and although the complex is quite old our unit was clean and tidy. Views from the balcony were fantastic - looking out over Magnetic Island. As other reviewers have mentioned, if... More

I love the location of this hotel ( though others may not) I like to wander the Strand, check out the sweaty runners, eat buffalo wings at Longboards and have a beer at the Seaview Hotel. And that is the Strand...! This hotel is incredible value for money, and the management here are fantastic. The views are amazing and so... More

Good location opposite the Beach and walking distance to restaurants. All rooms have a balcony and sea views. Rooms are clean and most have been refurbished. Large car park. Nice swimming pool. Good value here.

We stayed in a refurbished room 911. It was a lovely room with great views. However, we could not leave our door open at all as we had smokers on the balcony below us and one (who seemed to smoke constantly) above us. What a pity!

We were initially excited to be staying in a hotel with such a beautiful view. Our 'executive' room had been recently refurbished to we were happy with the room itself. Unfortunately, it became very apparent that we couldn't have the door open because people were smoking on their balconies and smoke was drawing into our room. To add to this,... More

We stayed in the executive suites. Very comfortable, good bed, limited kitchette facilities but all good. Friendly staff. Views from the room were fantastic so long as you dont get vertigo. Perfect location. Close to shops, cafes and restaurants on the Strand.
