Nice room with plenty of space in the room but a bit short on desk/table space. Had to sit my lap-top on a table the same size as the lap-top. Similar problem in the bathroom - little space on the vanity. Did not try the restaurant but there are plenty of options close by. Quite good location. Decent hotel at a reasonable price.

Lots of hotels to choose and I stayed here because they had a special on for $99. Room was pretty good and clean. In the quite area of town for a Monday night and on arrival the reception told me the room was $119 for the night. After I informed her that the website said $99 the manager quickly said no problems which was great. South Townsville area near some good eating places and very close to the center of town which was like a ghost town to be honest. Bed was hard but a quite night. TV reception good with Foxtel available in room. Room was air conditioned and the floor had carpet, which can be hard to find in this part of the world due to humidity. Room was a good size and had a view to the river, not that you can see much anyway.

Recently stayed over Easter and was fantastic! Very friendly staff and nice clean room, I could not fault a thing, this place is nice and handy to restaurants and most things around Townsville, we stayed for 4 nights and had our own car which we were able to park in the secure parking out the back. Not sure how the below review about noisy children got accepted to be on here as they state they "live next door", must be a disgruntled tenant that has not experienced children in their life time... we watched kids play in the pool area and around the reception area whilst we were staying and frankly its great to see children outdoors rather then on their ipads, ipods and gaming devices. We are a young couple and these apparent "screaming children" were not screaming or yelling and were very friendly young kids whom I suspect would have been guests staying and the children that live on site. All in all we will be back for sure, service, friendliness and cleanliness all a big thumbs up!

Room Tip: Marina View

Our room was neat and tidy. Checking inn very efficient.

We were not impressed about a housekeeper smoking outside our room when she was clearly not on a break. I am a asthmatic and could not stand the smell of smoke lingering out side our room.
I Think this habit should only be done In a area away from guests and on a meal break.

I was also appalled about the owner/managers children running and riding the bikes up and down the driveway, this is not only a safety hazard but unprofessional. The noise from the children was going through to our room

Room Tip: Pick a room away from reception.

The room we had was small and no balcony jammed in the corner of the complex. The cleaning staff were more helpful then the management that were on when we were staying. Being close to restaurants and cafes was great. I have stayed a few times at this accommodation but this will be my last, there are a lot of better places and around the same price. There is secure parking.

Thank you for a great one night stay in a two bedroom apartment (with external doors dividing them). The apartment was clean and we had everything we need (except the light was out but this was minor). Loved the amenities and facilities meant it was well-equipped.
The procedure for getting into our room after hours was well communicated and car-parking on site which is great. In the morning the receptionist was friendly when we enquired about getting to Magnetic Island however didn't know all of the information understandably, but offered to ring them for us. I loved the information on restaurants in the rooms - these little things can make a big difference when you don't know the local area. Would recommend for a short stay in Townsville.
