“Nice and New!”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

Very new and comfortable. Close enough to the city but just far enough that a car is required. Ellie in reception was very helpful and stayed back when we were going to be arriving ten minutes after reception closed.
Very modern interior that will need more than the standard 5 minute house keeping wipe over to keep them in good condition. TV outlet in the main bedroom.but no TV?...
Construction work on the eastern side of the building may cause some noise.
Apartments that face the South east suffer from train noise 24/7. The patio doors do have extra thick glazing, but the noise is still there. The main Train Station is only 200m away. Having said that, these apartments would offer great viewing of the V8 supercar track.

Room Tip: for Train spotting and V* Super cars units on the South Eastern side are best.

These apartments are really nice and look really good. Everything we needed was provided. My only complaint is although the living room furniture looked great it was really uncomfortable. If they replaced the couch with something more comfortable I would stay there again.

I stayed here from July 25-29 2011 with my partner and 3 yr old son. We had a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was of good size, had a large fridge, dishwasher, microwave, and an electric stove top. There was a good amount of crockery, cutlery and pots and pans. There were 2 toilets and bathrooms. Plenty of towels and sheets. And upon request we got extra blankets.

The location of this place is excellent - it's very close to town. We had a car so we didnt have far to drive. If you dont have a car then it's about a 10-15 minute walk into town, but that's nice because the weather in townsville is always nice! It's pretty handy to have a car in townsville so I'd recommend hiring one from the airport (i do it everytime i visit).

there is a small gym with a rower, treadmill, spin bike and weights machine. the swimming pool is open air, and looks excellent - there is also a nice bbq area near the pool.

You are also responsible for disposing of your own rubbish - there is a chute and a recycle bin located at the end of each floor. There's no problem with that, i mean how hard is it to do that!!

We only had a one problems with the room (minor) - the wardrobe doors had no rollers which meant we couldnt open them - we were advised that the builder had been notified, so looks like this was a problem in alot of rooms. Please note: this is a brand new building.

In all, I'd say this is a good place and I wouldnt hesitate to stay again.

Arrived after hours following a long trip as planned for a two night stay. Phoned the number on the door and got access to keys easy enough. Clean modern apartments very much to our personal taste. Furniture looked a lot better than it felt, quite uncomfortable, most of all the bed which was well below par.

The next morning we went to reception to sign in and inform them that there was only one towel and no bathmat. No problem, housekeeping would replace the towels straight away...is what we were told. When we returned to our room that afternoon, no housekeeping visit and we're still sharing the one towel...and of course reception had closed at 3:00pm so we're stuck with it.

Next morning we're checking out, advise we weren't happy about the towels etc. not being sorted out and were told that they had definately asked for them to be delivered (knowing who's fault it may have been doesn't change the result). Having to wash up your cups and put the bins out yourself to avoid a $50 penalty is not uncommon in long stay accommodation but in nightly motel accommodation which charges full rates it isn't reasonable to become one of the staff (although if we had received a key to the housekeepers cupboard on check-in we could have been living it up with a towel each!).

Holborn Apartments provided necessary shelter but there is far better service and value available in Townsville from vendors that have their stuff together.
