Positive Reviews

In a good area

Many guests have reported that this property is well-located, as it is close to Townsville's Central Business District and within walking distance of most of the city's top attractions. Guests have also liked being far enough away from the city's main area that they didn't have to deal with the noise.

Modern, well-stocked rooms

Past guests have liked the fact that all of the apartment-style rooms are equipped with a full kitchen at this property. This gave them the chance to cook their own meals and save money in the process. The rooms are also said to be very new and modern looking.

Friendly reception staff

Guests have said that the reception staff is friendly and accommodating at this property. In many cases, these staff members have gone out of their way to assist guests with any issues that they have experienced.

Negative Reviews

Rooms are small

While the suites at this property are a good size, the regular hotel rooms are said to be very small. Guests have said that it is almost impossible to share the rooms with another person due to the small size.

Confusing check-in

Numerous guests have been confused by the check-in process at this property, as you must get your room keys at a different building that is down the street. Those who were not aware of this procedure prior to arriving at the apartment ended up confused and having to carry their luggage while they located the front desk.

Slow Wi-Fi service

There have been complaints about the Wi-Fi being quite slow at this property. Guests have said that this service is so slow that it is almost unusable, leaving guests disappointed because they could not use the internet.
