There was a mix up with the room we were given when we arrived, but the Manager soon sorted it & we got the refurbished room with separate shower which I had booked. Rooms & balcony aren't large but were quite comfortable. The hotel is reasonably old but in a good position on The Strand & has great views of... More

The view is fabulous, unbeatable, magnificent and wonderful.The rooms are average, but don't look at the room look at the view. A glass of wine on the tiny verandah is good for your body your mind and your soul. Wander down the Strand and enjoy fabulous oysters, champagne or plain fish and chips, then go back to Aquarius and enjoy... More

We recently stayed on the 12th floor of the Aquarius on the beach at Townsville. Boy what a view! When we opened the door to the room we were greeted with sparkling blue ocean. The water seemed so close it felt like we were on a boat and could cast a line over the balcony rail. We choose an upgraded... More

Great location being directly across the road from the beach and on Townsville's Strand is a great place to stay with kids. Our room was on the 13th floor and the view was amazing, although balcony is quite small. Room was clean and large enough although the bathroom was a little dated and water pressure not the best. Gentleman who... More

The reason you stay at the Aquarius is its location and views from your balcony across Cleveland Bay.It's the old Townsville Travelodge (ca 1975) with several updates. We stayed for two nights and were happy with our choice. The room was well equipped but the bathroom in particular was very dated. Staff were friendly and helpful and parking was adequate.... More

A seven day stay in beautiful Townsville was enhanced by staying at the Aquarius on the beach. The 13th floor gave a view you'd pay a great deal more for elsewhere... Only downfalls were, unusable wifi, a noisy companion dog directly under our room (level 12), and the lack of the room being serviced took the shine off somewhat. Security... More

Requested a high level room - very obliging - 12th floor - magnificent views overlooking The Strand and Magnetic Island. Lovely up-dated room- clean, very comfy beds, good size and great little balcony. Staff friendly and helpful. Great location for a lovely walk down The Strand and beachfront cafes and restaurants.

Stayed for 6 nights on level 10 in a non-refurbished room. Room was adequate despite being dated & the low nightly rate reflected this. Beds were very comfy and we were pleasantly surprised to have a double and single as I booked the room with my son. Deck outlook was amazing and views were breathtaking. Great coffee shops and fast... More

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
