We were lucky to have a room with an amazing view of the bay. Very comfortable room, but the bathroom could do with an upgrade to include a better extraction fan. The staff was also very accommodating when we asked for a late checkout.

Thanks for the feedback NicT80. Please check out our Executive Deluxe rooms next time you stay for a more recently renovated room. You'll still get the same awesome ocean views and a fresher room. More

This was an amazing value for money hotel with a great view and descent parking. Perfect location for us straight opposite the beach and on the coffee strip. Perfect! I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying on a short vacation. The laundry facilities are easy to access and are cheap too!

The rooms to get are the high refurbished one, they have great views of the Bay and Magnetic Island. If your into walking up a mountains go up Castle Hill some people run up, walking is hard enough for me. You can talk the road or the bush track.

We chose the Aquarius based on a deal online. The room was neat and clean and suited our needs. We were situated on the second floor and the view was lovely. Amenities and facilities were good too. We would stay again.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights over the Townsville Triathlon big weekend. We arrived at midday and were able to check in early. Our apartment had a kitchen with a full sized fridge which was handy. Our balcony looked out over the water and was nice to sit and have your coffee in the warm sun. The... More

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
