Nice, clean and convenient place to stay. Just feel like at home with tv, free wifi, aircon, full kitchen (including dishwasher, stove, oven, fridge ...), washing machine and dryer are neatly hidden in the bathroom. Free carpark, swimming pools and gym are downstairs and in next building. Cinema, restaurants and cafes are nearby. Love to come back!

The apartment was perfect. Very spacious and fitted out with everything you need . Movies and restaurants were in walking distance. Excellent for couples or families. Clean and tidy, peaceful and very comfortable bed. Would thoroughly recommend these Apartments.

Was upgraded to a 1-bedroom unit, very clean, all the comforts (Washing machine, dryer, full kitchen etc). Free internet, though veeery slow. Close to everything you need, definitely staying here again on next visit.

Here for 2 weeks work. Apparently contents of unit dependent on owners choice of contents. Have stayed in 3 different units in the last 12 months. Only one had a clothes horse to air clothes. It would be ideal in all units as not optimal to be using a dryer all the time. The beds are double and can not... More

We booked a two bedroom apartment when four of us were visiting Townsville for the footy. This was one of the few places that hadn't jacked up its prices. Overally the place is great! Well priced, self contained apartments at a good location, with cafes and a cinema in the same block. The apartment was nice, new and modern. It... More

We stayed here to try somewhere new and the location was good, close to restaurants and the cinema. The 2 bedroom apartment is quite small but it did smell of smoke. The beds were comfortable and the built in cupboards are well appointed. The kitchen had all the bare essentials that you would require during a trip away. The washing... More

Stayed here and found the accommodation excellent.. Had a two bedroom apartment and the amenities were perfect.. Location was ideal as the complex had a Hogs Breath restaurant, a Guzmen y Gomez and a Max Brenner!!! Would stay again when I return to Townsville...

We arrived early 8:30am, and the receptionist stored our luggage and said that they would try and get our apartment ready as soon as possible, which was very nice. The cafe right in front of the Kensington was lovely and we all had a full breakfast before deciding where to go. The bus stop 200 feet in front was a... More

Stayed there over the ANZAC day weekend, and was impressed with the price from the start. Apartment was new and clean, close to everything, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was fully equipped. I would definitely stay there again and would especially recommend it if you needed to find semi-permanent accommodation in the region.

My partner arrived a couple of days before me and tried warning me how small the room was... But still I was not prepared. It was terrible! Like Harry Potter style - living in a cramped wardrobe. We visit Townsville regularly and we will definitely not be staying here again. I was under the impression I'd booked a self contained... More
