Looking forward to room renovation which I hear is happening, good to see the mini bar is back again & with the added coffee machine 😊 Nice touch. It needs valet parking brought back as most hotels will offer this service at a cost. But all good & see you again in 3 weeks.

Service was great from the moment we checked in. Staff were really friendly from the reception to the restaurant and bar staff. The room was large, clean and comfortable and the pillows were really good! Our room overlooked the river and Castle Hill. We got a special locals rate which made the stay really great value for money! This is...

What a great hotel in the heart of Townsville. Lovely staff - couldn't have been more helpful and efficient; great room on the 16th floor with a spectacular view of the town and ocean; and perfectly located in the centre of town...not to mention the rooftop pool.

Stated in a King room on 11th floor, late night check in at short notice. Duty manager at front desk couldn't have been more pleasant, helpful, and professional. Room was spotlessly clean. Bed and pillows very comfortable, aircon worked perfectly. Small but modern styled and very clean bathroom/shower. Small in-room refrigerator, and plenty of Pay TV channels provided. In-room dining...

everything was fine at the hotel but the room service. Hopefully the hotel can review their menu, offer healthier food items and get dishes such as a toastie improved. But until then, there are some good cafes nearby!

I know that the parking station was discounted but I think it should be even cheaper because I never imagined that we would have that situation - it's so much additional costs. I think you should be made aware of it as you make the booking and not find it on your reservation. It was especially awkward as we left...

Try to get upper level rooms as the view is fantastic also go up to the roof top pool for 360deg view of Townsville. Buffet breakfast was very nice and ample to eat. No parking on site but not a problem on the weekend, could be an issue during the week.
