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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We loved the location, away from hostels and bars but close enough to walk to town centre. Room was cool and clean, pool was refreshing, front desk staff were very helpful and kind. Little patio area off pool was good for out of room dining. Would recommend.

This really was a little oasis, right in the heart of the city. With a beautifully landscaped pool and spa area, tasteful decor, comfy rooms and ample space to sit and relax, this was a lush retreat and the prefect stopover for our family.

The City Oasis Inn is centrally located within a few minutes walk north of the CBD. As per the name, it's a lovely oasis with a well maintained pool in a peaceful green tropical garden setting. Our room was very clean with good strong water pressure in the shower and the best bench space I've ever had in a hotel bathroom. Staff were welcoming and helpful in all respects.

I highly recommend staying at City Oasis Inn if you ever find yourself in Townsville. The owners and staff and so friendly, welcoming, and kind. They go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay. By the end of our stay they knew everyone's name and breakfast order. I felt like I was staying with family, in the best possible way. The rooms are clean and comfortable and come with all the amenities that you'll need. It's a great location too with most of the restaurants and things to do in easy walking distance.

It's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The location of our property certainly does make it a great choice for anyone who wants to stay somewhere nice and central. That way, you can explore very easily by walking - just have to make sure to wear sun protection and drink plenty of water... thanks to our sunny weather all year round it does get quite hot!

Friendly greeting by staff; lovely room. Great location for walking from restaurants at night. Easy to park and access room. We rushed to get ferry to Magnetic Island and since this hotel is only 6 minutes away made it (via Uber).

Stayed two nights having, been here some years ago. Decor somewhat outdated, but accomodation was clean. There really should be a power point beside the bed. I needed a CPAP machine and had to navigate a power cord extension from the opposite wall; potentially dangerous. Free Wifi available. No catering on weekend. The pool was very popular. The location is very convenient to the city (easy short walking distance) and the Strand. Very reasonable rates and positive, helpful staff attitude. Overall, a pleasant experience but accomodation updating is needed.

Will definitely book there next stay in Townsville!! First time but was definitely the first of many. Perfect position for our full-on sporting weekend with one of the kids. Could easily slip back and kick back for a couple of hours between games at Queens Park. Soooooo much better than previous years standing round in the hot sun. Loved our room and location; loved the pool and spa; loved other people we met; loved the service and staff. We pretty much kept to ourselves but had an awesome experience. Our room and location were simply the best!!!! Thank you City Oasis Inn staff; it was wonderful. See you soon.
