“Lovely Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

I came to Townsville for one night on June 22, with two of my co-workers from one of the nearby Island Resorts. It was my first night off the island in 2 months. We rang up about 20 minutes before arriving and were given industry rates, which was a lot cheaper than usual.
We were only planning on using the room as somewhere to 'crash' after a night out on the town so were unfazed when we could only get a room with a King Bed on the 9th floor (only two of us were meant to stay, but three of us did).
The room itself was lovely, clean, and big. The bed was sooo comfortable and I had to fight myself to get out of it and get ready for dinner.
The room has good space to get ready, full length mirrors on the wardrobe and ample lighting in the bathroom.
We got back from dinner at about 11pm after deciding not to go clubbing because we were too full. We asked reception for a movie and the lady there gave us two as my friend couldn't make up here mind, but reception failed to tell us there were fees involved. We only watched one movie which was annoying because we got changed for two the next day.

The bed was so comfortable and I had an amazing sleep. Would definitely go back.

After being reocated to Townsville we needed to stay with Quest for a month. We hoped it woul d be a great place to stay with our three children but it has been terrible. The beds are so uncomfortable we wake up every morning with back aches, we had to purchase our own pillows as the ones supplied were all and lumpy, the set up of the apartments (we have two inter-connecting as we have three small children) is very odd and if we all want to sit and watch tv of an evening it is impossible as there is only one sofabed (again extremely uncomfortable and looks about 20 years old). As for eating dinner together well there is a small breakfast bar in the kitchen and then a small table in the other apartment! Just ridiculous. The kitchen facilities are totally useless. We had one burnt fry pan and a few pots but had to buy a new fry pan as whenever we used the one supplied it sets the smoke alarm off. Then there is the cutlery, it is the oldest and cheapest cutley imaginable, it bends when you use it and seeing as this hotel is around $250 per night I really feel it is disgusting that they have this poor quality. There was also no peeler so another thing we had to buy and as for their being a kitchen to use for cooking this is not true! There is a microwave which also turns into a cooker but it very difficult to use and there is two hot plates. We have therefore ended up buying lots of take away over the month and it has cost a fortune.
Our stay here has cost so much money and I can not believe how unhappy we have been with the facilities provided. The hotel is always busy so it really is about time they used some of that money they are making to buy some new thigs for the rooms!

Room Tip: Try not to get a room opposite the lift, we have been opposite the lift for one month so every night...

This place certainly lacks the charm and atmosphere for romantic or family getaway but it is well suited for a business stay.

Everything from the lobby to the rooms screams simplicity, I find it hard to write this review as there is nothing really good or bad about this place.

Tiny reception is open 24 hours and staff seems nice, parking is behind and under the building and it’s somehow limited so try not to be the last one back.

I stayed in studio room on 8th floor and again there is nothing really notes worthy here, bed was conferrable and bathroom was clean. I did end up being bit cold as bed cover was thin as they come but it is in Townsville so this should not be a problem.

There is no restaurant in the hotel but there are a number of the places within 100 meters that offer wide variety of quality foods.

Credit cards payments will incur a fee if settling your bill with them.

From the moment I checked in until the time I checked out, I received incredible service from the entire staff at Quest Townsville. Since I was visiting from out of the county, I had several questions that ranged from directions to local attractions, dinner recommendations, and some keen insights on the local nightlife, as well. The hotel is impeccably clean, well run, and situated perfectly in the city. I will not even consider staying at any other hotel whenever I visit Townsville.

l have just spent 4 nights in room 303 here for the V8s and had an enjoyable stay.Last year we had a studio room but decided to try a 1 bedroom apartment this time. The room was nice but the couch was terrible.l think it was a fold out bed couch but was very uncomfortable. The bedroom is up against the common walkway which allows a lot of light into the bedroom due to a very thin flimsy blind .Can also get noisy when people return to their rooms late and are talking between the elevator and their room.Our room was also above the restaraunts which tend to make quite a bit of noise at times Check in was easy with very helpful and friendly staff.There is undercover parking which is quite secure .A great place to stay but try to get a high room at the river end of the complex

Room Tip: Try to get a high room at the back (River end) of the complex away from Palmer St as the vehicle and...

Very comfortable stay, traveled on business and really enjoyed the extra room offered by the 1 bed apartment. The convenience of having a kitchen shouldn't be underestimated but if you want the extra's like room service or a gym it's cool that you don't have to go with out. Staff seem to really understand the constant traveller.
