Perfect spot, Rooms were self contained, very good, with Balcony, excellent views of the bay and Island and have been updated. Staff were friendly and helpful. A great start to our holiday. Cross the road to the beaches, there is some excellent walking and bike riding paths, a rock pool to swim, plenty of playground equipment for the kids. Next... More

Location, away from noise etc but still on the water. But I would not choose it again. It is a bit dated. Rooms not as nice as expected. They are all different, so I guess it's a bit of a lotto as to what one you get.

The view from the balcony of our 11th floor suite was stunning. The suite itself was a reasonable size with a well appointed kitchenette. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom quite spacious. The location is superb being right on the Strand and a great base for walking. There are a number of nice restaurants within walking distance. Staff... More

Check-in was ok, reception was busy with some tradesman and didn't acknowledge us for about 5 mins. Room was ok, bit tired and literally two steps from the lift which you could hear going up and down... Reasonable value for money, great views and handy for restaurants, would I stay again - probably.

Absolutely fantastic views out to Magnetic Island! The room is Motel size but very comfortable and did I say the views are fantastic? There is a kitchen, but it is very small and crowded; the refrigerator is full size. Next to the apartment block are a number of eating options, including a nice upmarket pub which is what we used...

Or rather, stay here if no other easy options. We unexpectedly decided to stay in Townsville, WHOLE place booked out for a convention, drove to Aquarius, took a look thought perhaps not, but wound up there gratefully when couldnt find anywhere else more salubrious. It did the job, bed was surprisingly good, room was small but functional with fabulous views.... More

This high rise is in a great location right on The Strand with great views to the sea. Well located for restaurants and for walks along The Strand and even into the city area if you like walking. Room was comfortable and well furnished. Had difficulty with wifi connection initially then very slow. Parking on site is limited and difficult... More

After a long drive from Darwin to Townsville, we booked a room with a balcony and view over Magnetic Island. On arrival, we were able to park both our car and trailer at the rear of the property however parking is not guaranteed and cannot be reserved. The gentleman who checked us in was very helpful with suggestions for local... More

I looked on the web and chose here but on arrival was quite disappointed I asked the helpful staff how this could be rated 4 star??? Only the suites ( which are simply a renovated room that is still very basic) are.. I looked at 4 rooms and finally chooses 606 which was suitable but more like 3 star.... one... More

Driving from Brisbane to Cairns, we booked this hotel thinking it would be a great treat with patios overlooking the beach. The executive room has great amenities and the wesbite is an accurate reflection of it. The pool is great and location perfect. Unfortunately when going out at 5pm, we left our key in the room and picked up the... More
