We stayed here while the netball state carnival was on. We had a 1 bedroom self contained unit. Was everything we needed. Located on Palmer Street where all the cafes and restaurants are to never short of somewhere to eat. A short walk across Victoria Bridge and you have the CBD. The only thing wrong was there was no convenient... More

My 199th city and first visit to Townsville, I stayed 3 night for a conference. I chose a 'furnished apartment' style accomodation, as that's my preference, allowing for space and allowing you the flexibility of cooking your own food, or comfortably eating takeaways. I also took a 1-bedroomed unit and would highly recommend it. The Oaks was excellent. Very friendly... More

I travel a lot because of my job and in 2016 the wifi is pretty much free everywhere. In an hotel where you pay 100$ plus at night, its unbelievable pay 5$wifi for 30min. It must be free! They give you 30min free but the timer start as soon as you connect your device, this means even if you don't... More

Stayed in a two bedroom apartment over looking the river. Apartment was clean and well furnished. Can be a little noisy at night but nothing different from hotel living. Service was great at the front desk. They were helpful and polite. Great location. Close to shops and restaurants. I'd definitely stay there again

We booked at Oaks M, but when we arrived they had drilling work over the road. The receptionist was very helpful and transferred us to Oaks Gateway. The room was very clean, well maintained and staff were very friendly. Lovely big pool for those warm days. Easy stroll to town and the strand. .

The room was clean and tidy and had a great view of the river and town, plenty of great restaurants and bars to get a great feed just outside of the hotel. I will stay here again the next time I come to Townsville. The receptionist are helpful and polite too.

With all the charm of a new witness protection block. It is to character what Facebook is to style. It is well equipped, but the decor and low energy lights make it utterly charmless. Close to eating in Palmer Street. I know there are much worse.

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to provide some feedback. I understand your point of view (often hotels can become somewhat utilitarian in their furnishings and décor). Over time, we have found many of our guests appreciate this style of hotel and look for this familiarity when travelling regularly. We appreciate this style is not for everyone and that many...
