Excellent accomodation. Arrived and was given an upgrade to the 13th floor. Spectacular views over magnetic island. Very clean. Would reccommend to any one who wishes to stay on the Strand in Townsville.

Lovely location overlooking the strand and the waterfront. Very close to cafes, restaurant and bars. 6 klm from airport. Great walking tracks along the beachfront. Staff very friendly and courteous. Room is very comfortable and well appointed.

This tall tower block - glaring red from a distance! - has a chequered history and towers over all other buildings on The Strand. En suite rooms/units all face the sea but vary in shape and size as formerly all different owners, We stayed twice as we travelled the coast and asked to have room 812 again on our 2nd...

We certainly stand head and shoulders above the rest. And we like to think of it as somewhere, between "Tangerine" and "Paprika". "Red" is soooo last year. Thanks for the feedback.

Well what can I say. The view is fabulous you can't beat it. The room is small but has everything you need. Parking was an issue as it was full last night when we arrived however we were able to park across the road on the strand which has no restriction. Recommend it and the price is reasonable only twin...

Glad you enjoyed your stay Carol. All rooms have Queen beds (ask about our rooms with Comfort toppers too - they are dreamy). Most rooms also have a Pull-out sofa bed or single as well.

Rooms are bright and clean. Beds were comfortable and the location on the Strand is perfect, as it sits right next to the Watermark Hotel. Staff at check in were really efficient, and answered any question over the course of our stay in a friendly and professional manner. Highly recommend Aquarius if going to Townsville.

Well the view is amazing and easy comfortable walk to food and the strand. I stayed 16 nights for work and after 8 days had to request a service which was the only one I received as they come 4 days after the first service while I was asleep never to return.

Good rooms, beds are hard but clean and tidy. Mainly stayed for the wonderful view and the walking distance to everything close by. Reception staff are very friendly. Best views are from the 4th floor or above.

What a great hotel! Location was good walking distance to the strand activities like kids waterpark and pools. Room itself was lovely and modern. Comfy bed and pillows. Beautiful pool overlooking strand ocean. Reasonably priced. And best for last ... the customer service was so nice and friendly. Highly recommended.

A fantastic location right on the Strand with beautiful views! I loved having a glass of wine on the balcony in the late afternoon and watching it all. It's walking distance to the Maggie Island ferry, the city and lots of restaurants on the strand. The room was fairly modern, clean and nice. There was a kitchenette and it was...
