“Great views and service”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

This was my 4th stay at this hotel over the last 12 months. The hotel is in a central location with the Ocean view rooms facing out to Magnetic Island, beautiful views.The Deluxe rooms are worth the extra money, and have been recently refurbished The Bathrooms are very clean and well presented. Highly recommend the buffet dinner at the in house Aqua Restaurant, fresh seafood and lots of variation to cover all tastes. Suggest you book as it is also popular with the locals. Breakfast is in the same location and just as good. A separate bar away Nice pool and grounds. A 15 minute walk or $10 cab ride to Palmer street which also has a number of restaurants and bars.

Room Tip: Request a room on the higher levels to take in the magnificant views of Magnetic Island

My husband and I got married here and have been raving about our experience to anyone who will listen! We've always been a fan of Jupiters; great spa, good staff, fantastic location. But our wedding experience was the best value for money. The wedding coordinator is world class, and knew what she was doing. We stayed a few nights after in an executive suite and it was clean, spacious and luxurious! The views were fantastic. We are going back to stay over Christmas. Also, Jupiters has the only place for fine dining, Essence is a great restaurant. And Aqua has the best breakfast buffet in town! Would highly recommend!

We stayed for one night, combining a Craft Fair with a business day. The checkin was swift and welcoming, the room was beautiful, not ultra modern, but very comfortable with a king-sized bed, a glorious view of the ocean and Magnetic Island, and spotless.
We visited the casino and had a wonderful meal in the adjoining Cafe. Jupiter's employees were helpful, efficient and went out of the way to make our stay pleasant.
We will certainly be returning.

Room Tip: Level 15 had wonderful views, and it was very quiet.

I've stayed here for business on somewhere between 10 to 15 occasions now. Hotel rates are good, room is always clean and well presented. Great bath tub in some rooms and positioned towards the TV :). Excellent views when room facing towards magnetic island. Although I'm sick of the buffet dinner now, food is always good and a lot to choose from. Only downside of the hotel for me is the gym, there really isn't enough equipment for a proper exercise.

Room Tip: - Room with a view towards magnetic island. - Room with a bath tub... the free-standing type.

Dear Corey001,

It is great to read Jupiters is able to suit your needs while travelling with work, and that you enjoy many of our services and comforts.
You mentioned that you have grown board with the dinner buffet in Aqua, that is disappointing and I can assure you I have forwarded your comments on to our Direct of Food & Beverage for his knowledge. For your future stays, I would like to recommend you try our newly opened restaurant Kōbe, booking can be made for you when next booking your accommodation. Kōbe is our 4th dining destination now at Jupiters in additional to our fine dining restaurant Essence and our café Spin located in our casino.
I would also like to mention that I have forwarded your comments regarding the suitability of our gym to our General Manager for Property Operations for his knowledge.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review here on Trip Advisor and I look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you back when you next stay with us at Jupiters Townsville.
Your sincerely

we have just stayed 1 night here & we did enjoy it, the rooms are looking a bit tired & need updating but to counteract this, we had a beautiful ocean view ...wow!
All staff were more than helpful & made you feel very welcome.
On the downside...we decided to have an afternoon by the pool, we felt this area really lacked atmosphere, the pool was a bit sad looking & really needed an overhaul & the gardens could be made into something extraordinarily beautiful if only it was given more of a tropical feel with more palms & perhaps Bali huts & lounges, instead it is a bit sparce & unwelcoming.
Despite this, i would stay again.

Stayed one night for a conference. Check-in was smooth, the room was refurbished and located on a high floor with great views across the harbour and out to Magnetic Island. Unfortunately the pool was closed for maintenance but the pool and surrounds were large and quite impressive. Buffet breakfast was excellent. Most of the major chain hotels in Townsville are quite old and I personally found Jupiters to be the best hotel I have stayed at in this city. I have rated it a 5 based on what is available in Townsville and in comparison to other hotels I've stayed at in Townsville. It is NOT located close to any convenience stores and it took me about 20 minutes to walk to the centre of The Strand where a host of eateries and a nearby liquor mart and supermarket (Woolworths) are located.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view over the water and Magnetic Island it is absolutely beautiful

Dear kaycee95,
Many thanks for taking the time to write a review on your stay here at Jupiters Townsville. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed your overall experience; it was disappointing that you were not able to make good use of our swimming pool and I do sincerely apologise. This area was closed for a short period for final completions to our new restaurant Kōbe.
Thank you once again, and we hope to hear from you after you next stay with us at Jupiters.
Yours sincerely
