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

Called the Hotel to book a room early in the morning as I had to travel 8 hours to get there and would be arriving late. When I called I specifically asked if there was room to park my car and camper trailer and was reassured that there was plenty of space to park, that is happens a lot here.... More

This Hotel has amazing views towards Magnetic Island The room we had on level 12 was average to say the least No one would use this bath. Absolutely worn out The cutlery looked like something from a second hand store Walls very dirty. Disappointed.

Oh dear, Things have not improved since the last visit two years ago. The rooms have not seen a renovator's hand in a generation and it is really starting to show. Dated, dirty and grimy bathrooms complete with antique tap wear and a well worn water stain in the bath are disappointing. Once again parking is difficult and sometimes not... More

Arriving in townsville late and at short notice I decided to ring this hotel and check on availability. Thankfully they had a room because the whole city was booked out thanks to the V8 Supercars racing. I have stayed here before so they had my details when I rang thru. I was so easy to arrange and upon arrival it... More

Aquarius is in a great location, right on the water with all rooms facing the views. There are great cafes and restaurants on the doorstep and a supermarket just round the corner. The Strand is a great place for a relaxing break. Sadly the rooms are not the best. Our 'recently refurbished' room had cracked tiles on the floor which... More

This hotel has lovely views, but I've stayed in others that have better rooms, service and amenities. If you are in Townsville and need reliable internet, toggle your phone or bring a dongle because the internet here is very sketchy and slow.

Fantastic service great rooms. Can't fault this hotel even when parking gets difficult later in the evening staff are always happy to assist. I have stayed here 4 times a year for the past four years and look forward to each country trip. The views are amazing too!

The view alone was worth the cost, sweeping panorama over the Strand and Magnetic Island. Service was excellent, the lady taking my phone booking was lovely and i was given a room on a high floor when i requested it. The stereo in my room didnt work but was replaced as soon as i let them know. My room was... More
