This hotel has lovely sea views (has a balcony) and is on the beach area called The Strand. The room is in need of an update, especially the bathroom which has peeling paint on the ceiling. Bed was comfortable and has a microwave in room. No breakfast on site but there are a number of places to eat, one is... More

I booked an executive suite which really means a small room with a sink and microwave. Value for money is good as the rooms are inexpensive. The bed was very comfortable as I like a soft mattress. The rooms are basic and clean and the Hotel is located on the Strand within walking distance to some nice places to eat.

Arrived after a long journey. Had an early night to find that the curtains did not close, leaving a gap of about 30cms. With daylight arriving so early we were woken by the light streaming in. Also noise from the bars outside till very late meant we slept little. It seems that the rooms are privately owned and so rooms... More

An enforced stop in Townsville meant we did not have the option of booking ahead. Walked in from the Strand. Stayed for 4 nights. Not the cheapest way of doing it as but happy enough. Lovely views although the room got very hot in the morning. Wifi erratic. Large enough to allow relaxing and close enough to most places of... More

The hotel room was very neat and tidy. Large enough to have a table and chairs, which was good for sitting at to eat breakfast etc. The views for the hotel room were beautiful of the beach front. Perfect place for walking along the beach. Good for children,as well as adults. Lots of eating areas close by, not far from... More

Spent a very relaxing holiday here. Our room was ok but we were asked to move as our bathroom was to be renovated. Lovely surprise to end up in a newly renovated room at no cost for the remainder of our stay. Very pleased.

501 What a great studio apartment on the 5 floor . Nice kitchen, bathroom clean but could be updated. Good size living area and comfortable bed. Great view to magnetic island and the pool was well maintained. Directly on the strand so could walk everywhere and reception was excellent . Morning sun and cool in the afternoon.

This place is a great place to visit. Highly recommend. Great views and right on the waterfront. Nice restaurant next door too. Easy driving distance to the ferrys and downtown. Right on the strand so nice walking every night. Only downside was the lack of parking available... would have been great if there were a few more parking bays... got... More

I loved this apartment hotel. The pool and grounds were great. Parking was so so but I didn't have a car. The apartment was between a bedsit and a small one bedroom unit. Heaps of room for one or two people with a great outlook. Music from the restaurant/bar downstairs/next door was ok if you closed the patio door and... More

Got a room in the Aquarius for a night with the family, what a view! We stayed on the 11th floor, beautiful view of the strand and magnetic island. The room was modern and very clean. Room service was well priced, short walk to the night markets that were on and to pubs/cafes. Will be back
