“Lovely B&B”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

We stayed 2 nights in Classique B & B. The house is a beautiful historical building with a very pleasant atmosphere. Iva and Russell are great hosts and very welcoming. They provide a lot of information about the area + good tips what to do and where to eat. Their tropical breakfast was delicious. Townsville is a very pleasant town and we really liked Magnetic Island. We very much enjoyed our stay.

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple

Very nice B&B. The house is an old Queenslander and wonderful refurbished! The rooms are very nice arranged and Iva & Russel are so kindly and helpful! Russel showed us the House and the garden and Iva gave us good advices for our further tour to Cairns. They recommended a very good restaurant, to where they drove us in the evening! Also the Breakfast was perfect – with lots of fruits (most of the own garden).
We felt a little bit like home, despite the fact that we stayed one night only. If we ever come back to Australia, we will stay there again!

If you are visiting Townsville, look no further than this bed and breakfast. The bed and breakfast is run by hosts that are truly a pleasure to be around, and that excel oustandingly in the service they offer. Beautifully restored and comfortable rooms, with charming and welcoming hosts that go out of their way to make sure you feel at home away from home. A truly outstanding find, would definitely recommend to others and would return here again if visiting Townsville again in the future.

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.
