We stayed two days in Townsville having driven from Port Douglas.
We actually enjoyed our stay in the resort. There has been a lot of money spent in updating the promenade and it shows as it has a nice clean feel about it. We enjoyed eating in restaurants along the beach and really enjoyed swimming in the lagoon pool.
We chose Seagulls as the place to stay based on a number of reviews that we had read. The thought of walking through 3 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens also appealed.
We were quite disappointed with our stay.
Our room and decor reminded us of a holiday camp room -like those offered by Butlins (for those old enough to remember) in the 80's. It was dark, some fittings were loose and it was noisy.
The pathway to rooms was just outside the window and people cannot help but have a quick peek to see what is happening in your room.
The pool area is very nice and is surrounded with nice plants and shrubbery. However, to describe the hotel as being surrounded by 3 acres of landscaped garden is misleading. The WHOLE area taken up by the hotel, gardens, car park etc probably accounts for 3 acres and the gardens probably account for 20% of this.
The positives for us in the Seagulls were the staff in the bar, the receptionist and the room service but I have to say that we would not be rushing back there.
