Reviewed 25 November 2013

From the moment Iva insisted on picking us up from the airport we had a good feeling about our choice of accommodation . With her welcoming smile & pleasant manner it just got better & better . A beautifully maintained well appointed traditional qld guest house with plenty of space, large rooms, pressed steel ceilings ... Russell's "tropical breakfast"( I counted 13 different tropical fruits) and great coffee on the deck looking up to Castle Hill set us for good day.......We couldn't have asked for more .

The hosts Russell and Iva are very welcoming. The breakfasts were just so yummy and they even catered to my gluten free diet. The room was lovely and comfortable especially the bed. Loved our stay and would recommend.

If you are visiting tropical Townsville, then Classique B&B is the perfect place to stay.

Iva and Russell are fantastic hosts - friendly, interesting, and knowledgeable about the local area. They go out of their way to make your stay exceptional.

The B&B itself is stunning.

It's an old style queenslander full of intriguing nooks and cranny's. The air-conditioned bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms are beautiful. The antique decor is gorgeous. A truly wonderful place.

Also, the breakfast is the best in Townsville. The exotic local fruit is fresh and delicious. The jams are mouthwatering. And the coffee is amazing!

The B&B is just a quick walk from town/restaurants/shops. There is ample parking. And you can come and go as you please.

Exceptional!

The other reviews here led us to stay at Classique B n B and I am so glad we took the advice of others here. From the moment we stepped out of the car, Iva welcomed us into her beautifully restored Queenslander and the kettle was on. The whole house is stunning and the bedrooms inviting. The bed was super comfortable. Russell's breakfast was outstanding, sweet tropical fruits very well presented and we ate on the deck, a perfect start to our day.

Iva happily shared her knowledge of the history of the house as well as giving several dinner recommendations. She is also a font of knowledge on local and not so local tourist attractions and picked up on our taste in what we like to see. We will definitely stay here again if we ever find ourselves back in Townsville. It was like staying with friends.

This B & B is a true gem in paradise. Iva and Russell are outstanding hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Home cooked treats with your tea/coffee, an extra towel for the spa, great advice about local sights and restaurants, driving you/from to restaurants, sights, the ferry, the airport. They go above and beyond expectations. The fresh local fruit for breakfast is beautifully presented
and the coffee made to your liking. The rooms are clean and well presented and the bed is very comfortable.

Room Tip: All three rooms had their own unique decor. Any room would be great.

I stayed at Classique B&B in mid sept while I was doing an around Australia holiday.
Firstly I must pass on what a wonderful hosts Eva & Russell are, they truly enjoy having you as there guest and go out off there way to make you feel at comfortable in every way. Right from the start this was obvious, when Russell offered and picked me up from the airport & he also dropped me back when leaving.
The house is a wonderful beautifully restored Queenslander ,which is very comfortable.
Russell's breakfasts are wonderful , with a plate of exotic tropical fruits (12 plus varieties)to enjoy every morning along with many other B/fast goodies.
Classique is a wonderful place to stay, it ticks all the boxes and I highly recommend staying with Eva & Russell.

This was our first ever stay at a B n B, so weren't sure what to expect, but so glad we did. The service is outstanding, the info on what restaurants, sight seeing, islands, shopping etc was most helpful. The beds are very good, the breakfast delicious, the coffee is superb, the rooms are lovely. The hosts Russell and Iva are so helpful and nothings a problem. A cuppa was on, as soon as we walked in the door. Couldn't have asked for any more. Thanks Russell and Iva, for the whole experience. Maxine and Peter

Room Tip: All their rooms are excellent.
