Arrived in Townsville a day early, no plans, no reservations. Easily booked into Seagulls Resort without hassles. The property is magnificent. Rooms are clean, staff very friendly and helpful. Shame the weather wasn't a wee bit nicer, a dip in 1 of the 2 pools would have been magic.

The room, grounds, bar, and restaurant were of a high cleanliness. ALL of the staff members were polite and courteous and willing to help. The restaurant has awesome nightly specials, that are to die for. The rooms were a little tired, but very comfortable, and definitely worth the money

The room and bathroom were ok and pretty typical motel style, but quite clean. I agree that the sand flies were bad if sitting outside at night and the wifi, which others had mentioned did not work a while ago, still didn't work in the room even tho I mentioned it many times. Overall a nice setting and pool and... More

Seagulls may not be the most luxurious resort you can stay in, but it's definitely a nice space where you can relax by the pool if you wish or just enjoy the lush palm gardens outside your room. Spacious rooms and friendly staff make it welcoming.

My daughter was married on the beach nearby in May with the reception held at Seagulls in a Marque on the back lawn area. About 140 guests so not a small wedding for the staff to deal with. The staff here both at front desk and in the bar were wonderful. We did have a few problems with last minutes... More

Stayed at this resort overnight when I attended a Cowboys game. Room was booked very minute but the price was fairly decent for what we got. When we arrived I was a bit worried as reception were organising rooms that hadn't had hot water for two days. However, room was very clean and tidy beds were comfortable. However our shower...

I stayed here for 4 nights with my wife and 2 boys. We stayed in a family room and the trip was for business and pleasure. There were numerous problems with our family room from the moment we arrived. The room was advertised with free wifi and I needed that for work and the boys love their iPads. This was... More
