Very nice and relaxing. Close to everything. Restaurants, coffee shops, movies. The pool did look abandoned but maybe because there are two awesome pools really close in the sporting complex. Which I thought was thiers anyway. The playground was also a hit with the kids.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment. We found it very roomy with a nice large balcony to enjoy the river views. Location is central to the shops, river way park area and cafes. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The one tiny issue was our bedroom did not have block out curtains/blinds and the morning sun shone right through....

This is a lovely apartment and in a prime location close to swimming, playgrounds, eateries and supermarkets. Well presented with washing and kitchen amenities. Not suitable for young children with only 'buckled' flyscreen on 4th floor windows and glass table tops that move.

We came for a visit to Townsville to watch the cricket and thought we'd book something close to the stadium. Location is good here with shops and eats around plus the public pool is impressive and a great way to cool off. Facilities were nice and comfortable and all was secure.
