I stayed here for one night on business and it was the second time i had been here. Check in was friendly and straight forward, the standard room was a little on the small side but served my purpose. The decor in the room such as walls, light fittings and carpet is very modern, i think the ugly brown bedspreads... More

We spent 3 nights at the City Oasis Inn. When we checked in we asked about upgrading to a studio room as it has cooking facilities. It was no problem, we were given keys to check the different rooms to see which suited us best. Of course there was an extra charge but the studio is a much better option.... More

We stayed here for 1 night, on our way to the Daintree. Check-in was easy, and the rooms were all very comfortable-spacious, with clean and modern bathrooms. I found the large bed to be very comfortable and slept very well. The pool was beautiful, albeit quite cool. There is a fridge and air-con in the rooms, very handy! The hotel... More

We stayed in a family room as we were able to take our dog with us or a 2 night stay. My gosh it was very average, although clean, the kitchen sink was the handbasin out in the one room!! Not impressed with having to brush teeth in the kitchen sink!! The shower was that small you had to go... More

Thanks for the review. It's great that you were able to take advantage of our pet-friendly rooms. We only have a limited number of pet-friendly rooms on offer for our canine loving guests and usually the feedback we receive from guests and their pets is overwhelmingly positive. To ensure that these rooms are maintained at a high standard, our tariff... More

Can't say it's the best place in the world but their staff here are very friendly and helpful, we arrived at Townsville after dark so they gave us the late check-in information. They also offer breakfast in the morning. Facilities are okay, if you are looking for a short stay with no fuss, here might just be your place to... More

Great place to stay as it was within walking distance of restaurants etc. Nice pool and spa. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was quite adequate. I would definitely stay here again when we visit Townsville.

This hotel really lives up to its name as an oasis in the middle of the city. The pool and spa area was really lovely. We had a Executive Kitchenette room which was very clean and comfortable. The staff had put the air conditioner on for us so the room was nice and cool which was a relief from the... More

Hi Sandra, Nice to hear you enjoyed your time with us. It is handy having a room with a kitchenette, especially if you have been travelling for a while. Airconditioning is a must for Townsville's summers but in winter it is nice to be able to sleep with the windows open and experience the mild winter weather! Glad you found... More

I stayed here one night on a business trip and this motel served the purpose well. It's located in the centre of town, but a couple of streets away from the major night spots so it's more peaceful. It's also a short walking distance from Castle Hill if you fancy a bit of morning exercise. The room was basic but... More

Thank you for letting us know about your time in Townsville. We are glad you enjoyed our pool area with heated spa and found our location to be convenient.

The room was clean and had the added bonus of a fridge. Great value for money considering you get free off road parking, wifi and access to a heated laps pool and gym only 10 minutes walk from the motel.
