This is our second stay at Mariners North in two years. We loved the room we had two years ago, however were disappointed with room number 58 this time. Although the view is amazing and it is handy to the shops and waterfront, the unit was very clean, but we were disappointed there was no cookware to cook anything in... More

We had a 2 bedroom2 bathroom executive apartment on the 5th floor which was great. The apartment had recently been updated and had every thing we needed to make our week long stay perfect. Jo the assistant manager was really great and helpful. We did daily walks down the Strand and the apartments are close to the ferry to pop... More

I travelled alone from Melbourne for the Townsville triathlon. Being an athlete with early morning training I was in heaven! Beautiful kitchen, bedroom, balcony overlooking the ocean and the strand and 100m from the Pool and a 10 min walk to the gym! I was very impressed by the support and care the management provided. They kindly helped me put... More

Just had 5-day break at the Mariners North in Townsville and we couldn't be more impressed. The location is really convenient for town and the Strand, you can walk to the Museum, Reef HQ and ferry terminal for Magnetic island. The rooms are very comfortable and have everything you could need for a self-catering stay. The kids loved the pool,... More
