We have stayed here before when it was Q apartments. This time we were given a 9th floor apartment which has 6 metre ceilings so you really had a sense of space. The apartments are within walking distance to cafes and bars, although the main street in Townsville is really starting to feel a bit tired, with a lot of... More

Close to town good Accomodation in principle but tired, noisy at weekends, needs to be cleaned better, and reception staff unhelpful and unfriendly. Wouldn't choose to stay here again for a holiday. Definitely not 4/5 star. Would benefit from better management. Lots of building going on nearby which doesn't help either

This is a pleasant place to stay and we really enjoy the facilities, however the reception was unhelpful and unfriendly. I would not recommend as it has soured our stay here. There is a nice coffee shop near by called Fratellos that we would highly recommend.

The apartment is a good size, you can easily walk to the city and Palmer Street. It has everything you need, including an oven. Really modern, nice to stay in a newer apartment, so much of the apartment stock is very tired in Australia, and very comfortable and would stay again

Very good apartment not far from anywhere you want to be in Townsville, wifi was free so big plus for that. Over all a very good apartment at a good price. The only 2 bad things I can think of was the shower screen needed a plastic strip or something on the bottom of the door as every time we... More

The rooms were clearly not kept well. The front desk was extremely helpful. The view of my room was also really good, the one I asked for. I just wish the rooms were cleaner and room service was prompt

Stayed here a few years ago when this was called Q Resorts in a two bedroom... this time a one bedroom. Place is well maintained, very well presented and plenty of space. Having just spent a week in motel rooms this is a welcome change to unpack, wash and cook however only a short walk away is numerous food choices... More

The lady at the front desk was very nice, quick check in. The apartments are very nice and modern, comfortable beds, nice kitchen. The views aren't that great but that didn't bother us. Only a short walk (10-15 min) to the main street of town. Comfortable beds, great bathrooms, fantastic kitchen, good little balcony.
