“Let your hosts make you feel at home”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Classique B&B is the perfect demonstration that, in terms of hospitality, the experience of your hosts counts above everything.
The place itself, an original queenslander, is worth the visit ; it is now unfortunately in an urban environment, which lets in a certain level of street and traffic noise that cannot be avoided by this type of historic timber construction.
But let Iva and Russel care for what you need and you will feel at home... let them suggest you the right places for dinner and welcome you back at night with a glass of sherry.
Cannot thank enough Iva for her suggestions for our day trips and visits... we would have missed something without her advice.
And if you have read the reviews, you're here also for the famous tropical fruit healthy breakfast... you'll get it, for the pleasure of your eyes and your palate.

Stayed here in November but only now have had time to enter our review. What a lovely warm welcome we received. Russell was on hand with a much needed cup of English tea. We couldn't decide where to eat and Russell, not only suggested the venue, but drove us into town as well. Room was lovely, clean and spacious and the breakfast was amazing. As others have said, wish we had stayed longer. Thank you Iva and Russell for your wonderful hospitality.

Thank you Iva and Russell for such a wonderful stay at your beautiful B&B. The upgrade to the Gold Room was just lovely and the bed was so comfortable. We loved trying all the different tropical fruits at breakfast - so healthy and appropriate for the hot, humid Townsville summer weather. All the different wonderfully cooked, tender meats for the BBQ dinner was a treat, not to mention the homemade chocolate brownies (after smelling them come straight out from the oven)! We really enjoyed the relaxing dips in the spa pool on these very warm evenings. The 20minute walk to the B&B in the Townsville heat was tough work the first time, so your exceptional service was very much appreciated, to drop us off and offer to pick us up in the car whenever we needed. Our own personalised tour was very special!
We would recommend Classique B&B to anyone wishing an amazing stay in Townsville.

This is a wonderful place to stay in Townsville. Iva and Russell are the best hosts one can wish for. Due to traffic jams we arrived quite late at the B&B, but they were very hospitable, and were more than happy to prepare our dinner a bit later. The food was great, perfectly grilled meat and tasteful sidedishes. The room was large and cosy. The pooltable with free port was a great bonus. This all topped off with one of the best breakfasts ever, including an amazing plate of local fresh fruits! The old house is beautifully restorated, and staying there feels like a home away from home.

We can hightly recommend this unique place. It is an old house that is perfectly well renovated. The rooms are very nice and clean and have lots of space. Moreover, the funiture is gorgeous. Iva and Russel who own the house, are very friendly and you feel really welcome. Moreover, the breakfast is an absolute highlight as there was plenty of everything to eat including a plate of fresh, exotic fruits, some of them we had never eaten before. If you want to have a nice stay in a special place in Townsville, this is the place to go. One tip: Townsville is worth to spend some time: you can bath in the ocean during summer time (box jellyfish season) as they have many nets placed there. Moreover, there is an aquairum and some nice surrounding. We regretted that our stay was only one night.

We stayed only one night in Classique and wished we had stayed longer. Iva and Russell were friendly and had a quality of attention to our needs without being intrusive. The house, of which they were rightly proud, was spacious and beautifully maintained. We had a room at the back of the house, which had a generous sized bed, ensuite shower with toilet and lots of space.
We also visited the Reef HQ, within walking distance of Classique, and that was amazing, seeing the turtle hospital, learning about the regeneration quality of starfish and conversing with the diver in the huge tank as a shark, stingray and assorted fish life swam past her.
We would certainly return.

Room Tip: We loved our room at the back, generous bed size, quiet and spacious.

We stayed two nights in Classique during our two month trip from Ireland touring around Australia.

Russell and Iva were wonderful hosts. He was waiting for us on arrival off the Greyhound bus and dropped us back into town to a restaurant.The breakfast was memorable with an array of fresh juicy fruit .With just three accommodation rooms, we felt we were treated as family. Again we were left to our ongoing transport,with our cases. Our stay in Chamomile was one of the memories we shall treasure from our visit.
