Stayed at the Aquarius for two nights in April based on the recommendation of friends. The Aquarius is a high rise hotel block on The Strand with all rooms looking directly out to sea including views of Magnetic Island. A great aspect and a lovely location to stay when in Townsville. The room on Level 9 was a good sized...

All rooms have a balcony overlooking The Strand, which is the main beach at Townsville. Reception staff are very helpful, try to steer clear of rooms ending in 02, 03, they are opposite the lifts. Not that the lifts are noisy, it is the guests coming in late that make the noise.

We arrived and were greeted by two very friendly receptionists, who wasted no time getting us checked in and telling us that we had a free room upgrade to the topmost floor. Our room was clean and tidy, and the house keepers were very friendly when they knocked on the door and asked if they could make up our room....

I know this place has been here since the 70s but that shouldn't mean it is not maintained better. Cracks in the handbasin and toilet. Mould in the shower. Carpet that was threadbare. Scuff marks dating back to when the Beatles stayed. And a front desk manager with a serious attitude problem. Apart from that the location is ok. Just...

An older place that is in not to bad a condition . The location is its best selling point in that it is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city but close enough to walk there . My studio had a large bathroom and kitchenette , comfortable bed but the best feature by far was the...

Great location and view, however the rooms were noisy as you can hear what's happening in neighbouring rooms. The toaster and kettle had not been cleaned for some time. Staff were friendly enough and helped when required. Easy to grab a cab with the direct phone line in reception. Lots of nearby cafes and hotels to unwind along The Strand....
