Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Eva and Russell are the best hosts, really friendly in all aspects, accommodating ting every need, excellent breakfast, Russell makes a mean poached egg. Beautiful room and beautiful home. Fab at local information, we would never have ventured up Castle Hill if she hadn't recommended it, stunning 😃

We just stayed one night as we were travelling through Townsville, and were very satisfied. It's a lovely traditional Australian house, furnished in period style, but with all modern comforts. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful, and gave us a wonderful (and healthy) breakfast in the garden. Highly recommended.

Good location, hosts are very welcoming, always on hand providing great service and advice. This bnb has a pool table, dart board and other games. The variety and freshness of fruit as part of brekky was spot on :) Keep up the great work Russell n Iva..

Hospitality par excellence! Russell and Avi really look after guests. You really feel at home in the large traditional Queenslander. It's as Queensland as it gets. I've been there , done that with concrete boxes in the sky but Classique Bed and breakfast is a down to earth, true blue Aussie a la Townsville experience. One bonus is the historical church right next door. Another bonus is Russell's famous omelettes and the incredible brunch which includes a tropical fruit creation work of art. Breakfast ain't in a stuffy room with a crowd. It's far from the madding crowd! You relax on the back patio away from traffic on classy dining settings that's about as good as it gets! The spa is great for a refreshing dip before breakfast. Basically Russell and Avi provide endless coffee so there ain't a single chance if withdrawal systems from the addictive bean.

We stayed twice at Classique, before and after our NQ excursions. It was excellent, unmatched as a B&B. It is in a well-maintained "old Queenslander" house. The rooms are well equipped and very comfortable. Host Russell is a former chef, so breakfast is all you would wish for. He and his wife Eva were as hospitable as if we were their old friends,

We had an overnight stay in Townsville before a trip to Magnetic Island the next day. We arrived at the premises late and checked into the very comfortable room. The whole place had a nice feel about it. Russel is a good host and presented us with an excellent breakfast on the patio the next morning. It was a short walk for us to catch a meal after settling in at the Hog's Steakhouse.

We had a lovely stay with Russell and the photos on the booking are an exact portrayal of what you get. Very tasteful and the little things at this B and B make it unforgettable. The rooms are very comfortable and beautiful. The common areas are far from common, lovely lounges to sink in to while you enjoy a small tipple of sherry. Next time we shall have a game of pool! Breakfast is outstanding, gorgeous tropical fruits along with the usual suspects. Great coffee! Russell is most attentive, and helpful. We have been traveling and working and he helped us out with some much needed washing. On our second night we were too tired to head out for dinner after a day of site seeing, Russell was only too accommodating and gave us free range of the kitchen. We can’t thank Russell enough for a lovely and memorable stay. Highly recommend this place as it is nice and close to everything and the view at breakfast is stunning with Castle Hill as the backdrop.

I stayed only one night in the Classic bed&breakfast but I felt immediately welcome when I entered the door. The owner is super friendly and the bed&breakfast is a lovely place. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast super tasty. I definitely can recommend this place.

I stayed in this amazing B&B over the Townsville 400 weekend and loved every minute of it. Russell is an incredible host who went above and beyond expectations during my stay and gave great recommendations for interesting things to do in Townsville such as the local markets. The tropical breakfast was delicious with a beautiful view of Castle Hill. The house and decor is absolutely stunning and an Instagrammer's dream. I have already recommended this B&B to my family and friends if they ever happen to travel through Townsville. I will absolutely be staying here again!

Stayed here one night whilst on our way down to Sydney its a bit hard to find and when you do, you have to travel down the road quite a way before you can turn back to access the road its in, we are used to smart hotels so this was very different for us, the owner was a nice guy and did everything he could to help, the room we had was nice very colonial and old time but very clean and the bed was comfortable, you are part of the household when you stay here, there was a couple of other guests staying there [ guys] and they were laying all over the lounge couches and i think they had a bit to drink, they were pleasant but it did make my partner a little uneasy, breakfast was nice on the terrace in the back garden, veggie with lots of fruit but he did do us some eggs, looking around i think an upgrade was needed in places everything looked like it has just been left to grow old, the main part of the town is quite a walk, with bars and restaurants and there were some places to eat near the cinema complexes which were a couple of blocks opposite, we did a trip to Magnetic island and it was quite difficult to park near the ferry terminal as there was no clear signage as to if you can park or how long you can park or was a permit needed, the terminal carpark was full, for us Townsville is not a place we would come back to found it a little run down in places, and the B & B although charming for a one night stay, we would not stay again sorry!
