Stayed on NYE and the room was clean and tidy. Staff at reception were friendly and informative. Only thing that was annoying was the toilets were hard to flush (we stayed in dual key) but I assume it's those certain types of toilets. Might be worth noting on the website more that this is not the one on the corner...

Great view, comfy bed, great location. This is my must stay site in tsv. Cannot beat the location, view and price! It is at the end of palmer street in townsville and attatched to a pub that does dinner and lunch and breakfast. Parking is free and in great abundance.

Not my favourite place to stay. Certainly not a long stay. Rooms were clean and comfortable but balcony quite small. Close to restaurants and yacht club. Metropole hotel next door offers a good selection of breakfasts.

We had to move to Townsville for a four week period due to medical reasons. We had a fabulous self contained room, including a washing machine, double hob, dishwasher, microwave, large fridge etc. overlooking the river mouth. To come back from hospital every day to such an excellent room and location made life so much easier. As for the staff...

I arrived tired from another long day hot on the road to be pleasantly surprised with the air conditioning on when I went into my room, the shower was cool but refreshing and very quiet. The pub next door served a reasonable meal to end a good day.
