We took our almost three year old on a week long holiday. The apartments were well suited for our family with the two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Although we did not need to use the services of the reception desk often, we did not have any problems. The view from the large balcony was fantastic. Townsville as a holiday destination is not entirely 5 star. The locals apart from a few were not friendly or willing to engage in conversation or just a courteous 'hello' as you walked by. We have said we would probably come back here but certainly not for the services or friendly atmosphere of Townsville in general but for the beautiful weather and location. In walking distance to the water park which is awesome the museum and reef aquarium (both were great and our toddler loved them). We had to hire a car to get out and about for a couple of days. The apartments offered us everything we look for in holiday accommodation as we usually like to spend most of our time outdoors. The only negative comment i would have would be the value for money if it was not for the view and location i would have to say it is slightly over priced. We have stayed in fully self contained accommodation many times and have always been supplied with detergent and garbage bags. To have to purchase a product you will be leaving behind increases the cost of your stay. It doesn't sound like much but it all adds up and as I said this is my only negative comment.
