This is my second stay here after being here in March 2011, both on business. Again I was lucky enough to get a special at $74 a night compared to full freight of $119. They have obviously realised they were overpriced back in 2011 as they were charging standard tariff of $130 to $140!
This is a typical Ibis hotel – basic, cheap fittings, rooms size reasonable, perfect for a business trip but would not want to spend more than 2 or 3 days as a bit cramped and no pool or other “resort” facilities.
Positives – right in the middle of a strip of restaurants and cafes and a short walk to night club area. Food at the onsite “Sugatrain” was again good, not cheap but reasonable quality and consistent. Also now have 24hr room service. Staff were very friendly and helpful, which was different to last time – as with most low end hotels this aspect is pretty much a daily lottery.
Negatives- starting to look a bit tired, lots of chips, scuffing and fraying in the room which in a better hotel would be fixed.
Bottom line – if you get it for the right price – my call is less than $100 (in low season) - it is good value. Perfect for 1 to 3 days business or as base to do other things around Townsville.
