Positive Reviews

Amazing location with magnificent views.

Guests say they love the location of this hotel on Townsville seafront promenade right on The Strand overlooking Coral Sea and Magnetic Island. Magnetic Island Ferry Terminal is a few steps away. Guests enjoy waking up to the sunrise and seeing the sun cast shadows on Magnetic Island. A new shuttle service now takes guests from Townsville Airport to this hotel and other properties.

Clean and comfy rooms.

According to guests, the accommodations here are clean, spacious, and well appointed. Guests appreciate the well equipped kitchenettes, spacious balconies and fine touches such as in-room massage. All the accommodations here offer beautiful beach and sea views from the balconies.

Great service.

Guests have heaped accolades on the staff at this property for its excellent customer service. The front desk is very efficient and guests get help with all the information they need about the best places to visit.

Negative Reviews

Dated decors in the rooms.

This hotel is an older property with decors from a bygone era. Guest have reported that it would be nice if the hotel updated its decors to something more modern and appealing.

No guaranteed parking/poor Wi-Fi.

This property provides only limited parking spaces, leaving guests to scrounge for the available spaces or hunt for offsite parking which can be hard to find. Guests have also reported that Wi-Fi quality in the rooms is frequently abysmal.

Irregular housekeeping.

Several guests have complained that it took days before their rooms were serviced by the housekeeping staff thus allowing them to get quite filthy.
