Classique Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 17 Townsville B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Originally built in 1890 as a cattle station family's town house in Townsville, this property was restored over a 4 year period and is now an incredibly welcoming B&B. Nothing is too much trouble.
Situated on a slip road off the busy Sturt Road (almost opposite the Bulletin building), between a small church and the choral society, this is a gracious accommodation option and wins 10 out of 10 for every aspect. I visited Townsville for the Northern Australian Conference and found the best of Northern Australian hospitality.

Room Tip: Ruby Suite set aside from the central axis of the house.

From the moment we met Iva we felt immediately comfortable and at ease. Not only were the rooms stylish and comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious and healthy. Iva bent over backwards to ensure we wanted for nothing. If we came home early she would have a cup of tea and cake waiting for us, she even bought our favourite tea especially for us. We had to drop our hire car off early and ida took us into town, picked us up again, and even took us to the airport on our last day. Nothing was a bother for this lovely lady. We miss you Iva x

A very warm welcoming let you feel like coming home. Iva and Russell were very kind and helpful. The house and our room were so nice and lovely, nothing was missing, very tidy. The breakfast was served with plenty of fresh fruit. Amazing! We enjoyed our stay very much. Great!

Our short stay at Classique was perfect. Beautiful old house with plenty of charm, clean and comfortable with everything you could want. Russel and Iva were so helpful, even so far as giving us a lift to the airport including a scenic trip up the mountain. Breakfast was superb - I don't think I've seen so much varied fruit. Highly recommended.

We stayed two nights at Classique and were made to feel so welcome by the hosts. They were very friendly and gave us recommendations for restaurants and helpful information on getting around Townsville. The house is enormous and has been beautifully refurbished to offer all the facilities guests expect, but still preserves its character. We were given a room upgrade on arrival which, along with its ensuite, was large, comfortable and very clean. At breakfast we feasted on a beautiful fruit platter with the most amazing assortment of fresh tropical fruit. We loved this B&B and highly recommend it.

We stayed here in February after seeing the reviews on tripadvisor, and were not disappointed. We were in the middle of a road trip from Brisbane to Cairns and picked Classique out as night to spend out of the campervan. From the moment we arrived Russell and Iva were so friendly, showing us around their wonderful home and then giving us a lift into town during the day, and again at night for dinner. They couldn't have been more accommodating, and are rightly proud of the building. We spent a great night in Townsville, and couldn't recommend this B&B highly enough for both its wonderful charm and its amazing owners.

Room Tip: we stayed in the gold room but all 3 looked amazing.

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.
