“We loved it!”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

We stayed for one night for our 25th wedding anniversary. We wanted to be somewhere where we could sit on a balcony, have a drink and just enjoy the view of the water and strand. The room was on level 11, it was great for the two of us, clean, neat and tidy, lovely bathroom, good kitchen facilities and a good size fridge. It was not noisy at all, all we could hear all night was the waves crashing on the shore and it was a Friday night. This place wold be perfect for short or long term stays wit the kitchenette. Only down side I guess is that there is no food on offer.

Room Tip: Request high floor for maximum views

We booked online and got a real good value rate.

Our room was about halfway up the tower and had an excellent view of the Strand, the beach bay and Magnetic Island. The small balcony made for a nice touch with a sunset glass of wine.

Room had everything we could want, very clean and a good air con unit. Good sized kitchenette at the entry with enough to make a reasonable and basic meal or breakfast.

Close to loads of restaurants and fitness activities if you want and the beach is just over the road. Swim between the flags and the stinger nets.

Overall, we were very happy and would stay again. My tip is to ask for an end unit, as they are a little larger the the regular units as the same price.

Room Tip: Ask for and end room and one that is high up to make advantage of the views.

Stayed at this property 8th April 2013. Customer service was great and we were made very welcome as well as being offered a room on a high level for the view. Rooms were clean, modern and well appointed and the bed was comfortable. I cannot fault this property and highly recommend it to anyone.

I travel to Townsville frequently and this is my favourite by far! I have stayed in many hotels in The Ville. This one offers friendly service..no matter who is on front desk! Great Views. Clean and Tidy...every time! Parking could be better, but good that street parking is free. A Gluten Free/Soy Milk Option for Breakfast would make this place perfect for me!

Recently stayed here for one night on business, the place is nicely located on the esplanade but noisy at night due to hooning up and down all night. Room was small and outdated but pretty clean. Shower was over the bath. Be warned parking is limited and had to park on the street.

Room Tip: Level 11- nice views

Stayed on the 12th floor amazing view over the strand! The room was faultless, very clean, comfortable, everything worked well, tidy...it was perfect and very worth the price $220 aud for 2 nights and got a free bottle of wine...also saw spawn breezie there (international hip hop artist) so it must be good if the stars stay here too! :) Best hotel in townsville by far!!

Room Tip: Id suggest 9th floor and up to get a nice good view of the strand and ocean

Stayed last weekend, one of the tallest hotels on the strand with the best view of Magnetic island.
The room was great, we had the executive suite which I hear have all been renovated, they are on the higher floors we were on the eleventh floor not large rooms but clean and comfy.
Pool was good and all cafes a walk away, you have to eat at" longboards" try the fish tacos they were great. All in all loved the strand and the location of Aquarius will defiantly go back and stay again.

Room Tip: room 110 was our room
