Friendly and helpful staff. Neat tidy studio room. Free parking unallocated parking (bit tight). Drive way is a bit hard to find but if you head right to the end of Palmer Street and turn next to the Met you will find it.

We stayed a couple of nights and were very happy with this hotel. It is not quite in the centre but is close enough if you have a car. The room is not huge but they have managed to get all the essentials in and keep it uncluttered. The reception staff are very helpful. However if we stayed again we...

Hi Oskar, Great to hear you enjoyed your recent stay with us. Our self contained rooms offer everything you need for a visit to Townsville. While the views on the lower floors are limited, there are other room types such as Mt Stuart and City Scape apartments which guarantee views.

Very nice apartment. Has everything I need in the room, but also a washing machine and dryer. Apartment was modern and clean and very comfortable. This is right down the end of Palmer street, almost too far to walk to the rest of Palmer street.

Hi, Thanks so much for your review. Our property is certainly a hidden gem. We are still close enough to make the most of all Palmer Street has to offer, while allowing for a little distance and quiet from the busy dining precinct. See you in a couple of months!

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.
