A great place to stay...the rooms are clean and roomy...minimal street noise...a tropical paradise! The staff are very accommodating and the food in the "Sidewalk Cafe" is great.

Room Tip: Ask the staff to assist in selecting a room for you. An informed choice is always good. The staff ar...

Staff couldn't do enough for us when our family of 3 adults evacuated to City Oasis when cyclone Yasi was bearing down on Townsville. We stayed in an Executive Suite with kitchen facilities including a large fridge and plenty of room to house our large amount of luggage. Our room was very clean and bed comfy. Even at this crazy time the restaurant remained open and provided good wholesome meals for all of us staying there. A big thank you to all at City Oasis.

Hi Kim255073

Wow that seems like a lifetime ago!
Looking back it was one of our busiest periods this year.
A full house with a cyclone bearing down on us was a particularly challenging time
I am forever grateful to my fellow staff members, family, friends and guests who all chipped in and helped us keep the wheels turning at City Oasis during the cyclone and beyond
Thank you Kim255073 for your kind words

Had 2 nights at the City Oasis in Townsville in November. Stayed in an Executive Room. It was clean, neat and tidy and well maintained. Beds were comfy, shower over the bath was cosy, but good - one you can get wet under! Nights were very quite. Great central location, easy to get out and about from. Gardens are a real suprise - very nice. My daughter (6) loved the pool and was happy there was a couple of swings. She wants to know when we are going back! I guess thats about as good as you can hope for!

Hi Adam G
May I say your daughter has excellent taste!
I am very happy to hear that you both enjoyed your stay at City O
It's great as a family you were able to enjoy the pool, gardens and swings
Around August and September we spend quite a bit of time fertilizing and mulching our gardens in preparation for the warm growing weather and boy the plants seem to be growing before our very eyes

Hope to see you back at City O soon
Regards
Brendan

Recently my daughter and I while travelling to Cairns stayed one night here. We phoned just on sunset and booked, check in was friendly and efficient. The room was clean and very comfortable, room service was great so quick and tasty. Just what we needed, a great nights rest to head off after a good breakfast. All the staff were lovely.

Dear Vickip 12

Thank you for taking the time to review City Oasis
I am pleased that we were able to receive positive comments on service, cleanliness and food quality. It really does make my fellow staff members and me happy to hear we hit the mark on each of these very important factors in the hospitality business.
If I remember correctly your daughter is an avid runner, bike rider, swimmer, I hope you will be able to visit Townsville for the Townsville Running Festival on the first Sunday of August next year

My partner and I spent only one night at City Oasis, but wouldn't hesitate to return and stay for a longer period. We were passing through Townsville on our way up to Cairns, so only had 2 days to explore and as we had no idea of what was in the city we managed to get lots of useful information from both the receptionists who gave us maps and advice and the smiley waitresses in the hotel's cafe who told us to head down to the Strand- we weren't dissapointed!
Our room was spacious and very comfortable, the nicest hotel room we've had in a while. When checking out in the morning, the housekeeping team were very friendly and attentive. The rooms were really clean and the housekeepers were keen to know if we were happy with the room. This was a refreshing touch. Before leaving the hotel, though we regretedly didn't have time to swim in the pool, we took a walk around the gardens and were impressed with how well maintained they were. Credit should definately go to the hotel's groundsman as we saw no other gardens this green and luxurious in the city.
It is rare to find a hotel where it appears all members of staff are happy to be there and are great with customers, so we will be telling our friends and we hope to return some time in the future.
Thank you to City Oasis Inn for giving us a wonderful insight to Townsville!

Thank you for posting this review
I am so happy you chose to stay at City Oasis Inn
I hope you will visit us again because 24 hours in Townsville is not enough time to explore our wonderful area
It's great you enjoyed the 4 star executive rooms. We have two types of rooms at City O
Our executive rooms are rated 4 star and our standard rooms are rated 3.5 stars.
If you are looking for a larger room with queen size beds and bathrooms that have a bath as well as shower the 4 star rooms are the way to go.
On the other hand the 3.5 star rooms are well suited if you are wanting to save some dollars. They are equipped with double bed, en suite with shower and toilet facilities. Both room types have very quite and powerful split system air conditioners (A welcome bonus in the tropics)

Happy and safe travelling
Brendan

My wife and I have just arrived home from a trip to Townsville and wanted to share our experience with the travelling public. We stayed at the City Oasis Inn and had the wonderful experience of staying in their old world Queenslander cottage.
Never could anyone find a better name for a destination like this hotel in the middle of a city.
Our trip started with making our booking by phone, staff could not do enough to advise us what was available in the hotel and what was happening in the city. We enjoy our first day playing golf at the Townsville Golf Club and came back to our cottage to be meet by the friendliest of gardener working away mulching the cottages old world garden in the middle of a rain shower.
We donned our swimmers and headed to the pool, again on seeing the pool area the name of the place hit home “City Oasis”. We dived into the pool and were welcomed by a very refreshing cool pool, we progressed into the heated spa and all of a sudden my aching bones from the golf started to disappear. After twenty minutes in the spa we went back into the pool and it was unbelievable and the combination of the heated spa and the cool pool this pair was feeling on top of the world.
When we had checked into our cottage earlier in the day we had seen that the hotel had this vast area of garden with a couple of BBQ’s, on the way home from golf we bought some steaks and salad and spent a wonderful end of day in this most delightful environment.
We had five wonderful days in the hotel and we must say that we have travelled through a large slice of Asia and this place is unbelievable for cost and experience. We were also fortunate to run into the friendly host of the hotel, Annette and Brendan and could not get over how friendly they were.
Anyway, if you are in need of a break from your own desert and looking to revive yourself do yourself a favour and give this oasis a try.

Room Tip: If you are staying for a few days and there is at least two of you try and stay in the cottage

This is not the first time our gardener has been mentioned in such a positive way
Laurie is a true "Evergreen" and we thank our lucky stars he is part of our team
I think the comments reflect his can do hard-working nature. This also permeates down to the condition of our tropical palms and gardens. I am so happy your review acknowledges his efforts.
We have decorated our turn of the century miners cottage (circa 1880) to give our guests a special experience. It's great to here you enjoyed your 5 day stay in the Cottage.
Because it is fully self contained we have had guests stay for days, weeks or months

Safe and happy travelling
Brendan
