I am putting together an itinerary and I am hoping to get townsville lodgings for a small group of 5 (so share a 6 bed dorm). I have had groups through here before and the experience varies. The last place that we used 'Reef Lodge' was overpriced for what they get and the management seem very dodgy.
I was looking for a locals recommendation? The group are all English girls in their early 20's. It needs to be in walking distance of dinner options as well.
