Good clean room for a reasonable price. In town for business trip so I only stayed for one night. Great location on the waterfront with great views, good parking and close to many food options. Bed was comfy and even though there were storms passing through when I stayed, the room was suprisingly quiet.

Glad you had a quiet night's rest Megan. Watching the electrical storms rolling in from your balcony can sometimes be quite spectacular too.

Brilliant location on the Strand Beach precinct in Townsville rewards residents with views to Magnetic Island and beyond Renovated rooms are small , but comfortable and well appointed. Service is excellent Pool, location close to pubs and restaurants make for a very pleasant resort style stay

This place is an ugly high rise hotel that spoils the Townsville sea front sky line but for any one staying it does afford spectacular views of Magnetic Island and the towns' water frontage. The views from the balconies are everything and if the hotel offers you non sea view rooms then I would advise to to bother. The room...

Thanks for the kind words Phil. We will never offer you non-sea view rooms because of ALL of our rooms face the ocean. Every Room on Every Floor, Every Time.

I found the Aquarius on the Beach apartments always a go to when staying in Townsville. The Apartments are located right on the strand opposite to the beach with great views from a balcony room, if you can secure one. The hotel has private parking for ones who travel with a vehicle, and also central for public transport to the...

We stayed there for a night. The hotel is facing the beach. Near a lot of restaurants and bars. Close to beach front park and activity. The staff is very friendly. The room is a little old but quite clean.

Great view indeed particularly for price and very comfortable bed however spoiled somewhat by the extent of smokers who stay at motels and hotels these days I find with this one being no exception with a continuous stream of smoke and coughing from balconies around us even ash coming down past our balcony. Pity as we feel now in 2017...

I am amazed at all the glowing reviews but perhaps we stayed in one of the not so good rooms/floors. We stayed on level 12 and as soon as you get off the lift there is a horrible smell. Thankfully our room did not smell as bad. Two doors down from our room was a door that was left open...

My partner and I stayed here as a quick overnight escape from parental duties and loved it! Amazing views, nice pool and so many restaurants close by. The staff were friendly and the bed was quite comfortable. We will be staying here again. My only comment would be the lack of parking. We had to park on the street when...

Thanks Judoash. When the FREE off-street parking fills, the on-street parking is also FREE. Although other suburbs may have some problems, with so many people using and just sitting, watching and enjoying the Strand, issues with vehicles in this area are rare. The Strand also has extensive CCTV coverage adding another layer of security along the boardwalk and surrounds for...

Booked at the last minute a twin room on the 8th floor, room was clean and tidy, bedding reasonably comfortable, staff at reception was friendly and helpful, the only cons were the hideous sliding door to the bathroom which got stuck more than once locking me inside and the air conditioner exhaust which blew hot air on the balcony while...
