Best view in town. It's that simple. The room is okay. The staff were good, helpful. Parking limited but okay. No food service in the hotel. You don't stay at the Aquarius for the food, you stay there for the view, it's the very best Townsville has to offer. As long as you are above level ten. Spectacular. The Strand... More

We were in Townsville for a few days and thought we would treat ourselves to a beach front room. We were not disappointed with our 11th storey room overlooking the strand, beach and Magnetic Island. The room and bathroom were big and clean, the bed was super comfy. The only draw back was the lift broke down one of the... More

Perfect spot to stay on the Strand. Arrive early so that you get a car park. More rooms than car parks available. There are numerous Restrauants & Cafes close by to choose from. Or you could walk into Flinders St. For many more choices. All rooms have a sea view. Desk staff are helpful.

I have stayed at the Aquarius about four times now and each stay was great, until this one.... we turned up to find that the car park was full of people's vehicles who were not staying at the hotel but actually dining at the restaurants down the strand. Once we found a car park we checked in and found that... More

My wife picked this hotel, was easy access to the strand and restaurants. We got a two bedroom suite which is just 2 adjoining rooms with two doors that you open which was fine by us considering the price you pay which is minimal. Well my 5yro was happy, she had an apartment all to herself really, we just left... 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.
