This HI is very old & was maybe the first ever high rise hotel in Townsville (under a different name I think) & parts of it still show its age. We were in room 609 (no balcony these appear to be only from the 7/8th floor up to the 18th) maybe these higher rooms are better
Great Location to the Cowboys Leagues club even though Flinders Mall is straight outside there are not the shops that there used to be even Woolworths have moved to the next street up from the mall. The only time the mall is alive is Sunday morning when the market is on.
Thick fluffy towels
Large bedroom (we had a queen)
Staff friendly & most helpful
If you have a car be prepared to pay $$$'s to park in the car park across the road or use the valet service for $12.50aud per day & the better option.
Bathroom very dated & in need of repairs & better lighting
The two seater sofa lounge was terrible if you sat side by side you would both slide to the middle very uncomfortable & very small
The AC had a mind of its own & would not adjust to the temp required I asked at reception if this was one controlled by the hotel but they said no
Old outdated furniture (cane chairs in disrepair)
Very little security
While this HI has a nice lobby & upstairs bar area & restaurant very little appears to have been done to the rooms. Will stay back at the Quest (even though it has been 2yrs since our last stay & may have changed but could not be worse than the HI at least parking was free) or try the Ibis next time
