This place is lovely. I love the bar side and pool side rooms & the free car parking. They even let me park my car another night while I stayed on Magnetic Island. I was very thankful for this. However, I wasn’t pleased when a late night fire alarm went off announcing “Evacuate Now”. There was no sign of the night manager, no fire marhsall & no directions given. We other guests and I returned to our rooms, we were uneasy and felt unsafe. Not a good recipe for a good nights sleep.
Zane and his team including Jo and Josh on reception, Ben and Tahli on the bar were all exceptional and did everything they could to make ours a memorable stay, would definitely stay again next time we’re in Townsville. Thanks again guys.
Just when we thought Townsville could not possibly have any more surprise offerings, we stepped into the Rambutan Resort on Flinders Street. The ground floor bar and small lobby belies what we found in arrival on the 3rd floor accommodation level. We have a relaxed Italian restaurant - Armati’s, fabulous bar, rooftop pool, poolside cabanas encircled on 3 sides by the accommodation suites. Our room was tastefully furnished, somewhat “Hamptons style”, large comfortable beds and while the ensuite was on the small side, this was compensated with an overly generous shower - were talking 1.8m x 1m. We did hit a minor hurdle with a water leak from a pipe in the bathroom ceiling, however management were prompt and efficient in their response and you could not really hope for more. The only concern is that with it’s own pool, bar and restaurant at your door - I mean really at your door- you might have no reason to leave and find you’ve missed out on some of the sights of Townsville. And Townsville really has a lot to offer. However this is now certainly my go to accommodation in Townsville.…
Stayed here with wife and young son and enjoyed our stay. Great roof top swimming pool with attached bar and restaurant. Room was ok - nothing fancy but good value for the location. easy walking distance to shops and Beach side attractions
Food was excellant and I cant say enough about the freindly and willing staff in the street bar..if Im ever in Townsville again I am guaranteed to eat here again, one of the best I have been to absolutely brilliant.
Everything you could ever want and you don't even need to leave! Breakfasts. Lunch. Dinner. Roof top swimming pool. Cabanas. Cocktails and food brought to you by the pool. I would order 2 room villa next time (that was my error...would make my teenage daughter happier not listening to me snore - not, I repeat, not thr resort's fault🤣... The kids played in the pool every day for hours. Special shout out to certain members of staff - Chad, the awesome bar man - and my chief cocktail maker Zane - the most friendly, happy, helpful, knowledgeable guy around Jo - my guardian angel who went to the end of the earth when my daughter left her beloved sleep toy in the bed and called the laundry and took care of this precious piece of my daughter's life. I can not express how grateful I am to everyone involved in Timon's return ❤️🙏 Definitely coming back. …
Stayed here in Room 22! Everynight until 4 am the pounding of the music infiltrating our room was relentless. We bought ear plugs to help us sleep. The room was rather small with a tiny fridge, a toilet that did not have a separate light switch.Toilet paper like sandpaper, cheap and nasty. We booked via Jetstar only to be told we were not booked in. Reception were not very friendly at first but after my phone call to Jetstar, the mood of the staff changed and we were given a room. If you want a restful stay my advice is to go elsewhere! We will come back to Townsville, but never to Rambutan!
Loved this place. Stumbled across while walking from the ferry. Great location in between city and the strand. Food is great pub style. Fantastic prices and specials. We ate here a few nights. Great for all ages. Serves food till 9pm.
Had a wonderful time out for dinner. The experience was memorable from Ben and Rebecca down stairs. Their service was enjoyable and extremely friendly, made our night so much fun. Best cocktails by a long shot.
We saw on bookings a room for $114 and when we called the hotel they tried to charge us $179 After sorting this out we found our room to have a stale smell thinking it was just because the room was closed up and 37 degrees. Couldn’t sleep all night because of the smell and told the front desk the next morning and was told that they thought they had a sewage leak somewhere and never offered any compensation. We were extremely disappointed
