“had a great weekend”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

The Oaks M on Palmer is a lovely place to stay. We had a Studio room facing the river and Magnetic Island and the view was beautiful. Decor and colour is fresh & modern, classy and very spacious. Thoroughly recommend this property.

We had a wonderful stay here, the room was stunning with a spa bathroom separate walk in shower, kitchen and laundry facilities, plenty of space and a lovely balcony overlooking the river. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. Walking distance to restaurants and good location for getting ferry to Magnetic island. Townsville is working hard to improve its image and has created a lovely strand. We would recommend highly.

Room Tip: Ask for a spa room overlooking the water

spend a few nights there while passing through. very central location and various restaurant options around

+ great location in city centre; all major central places within easy reach
+ nice rooms
+ lots of space
+ plenty restaurant choices around

- although i just tried using the pool briefly, it didnt seem overly clean

wouldnt hesitate to stay here again, especially since townsville doesnt offer that many proper alternatives.

This serviced apartment in Palmer street in is in the heart of the business accommodation area of Townsville. There are more than 10 higher end motel/hotels in this street and along with the great selection of restaurants, makes it the place stay for a short term visit to Townsville.
I got great value from my studio room, with a nice ambience and a view out over to Magnetic Island. It is a quiet area and the ground floor parking is easily accessible and one of the reasons why I stayed here now for a second time. Combine that with great front desk staff, clean rooms and good in room facilities.
I recommend Oaks M for anyone who wants great value, quiet and comfortable rooms in the heart of Townsville.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher level room.

Stayed here for business and must say it was a great size room that was well appointed. This is now the hotel of choice for Townsville stopovers. Great to make note of too is the location with the food precinct on Palmer.
