These self contained apartments come with all the mod cons including full sized fridge and washing machine. The view is spectacular overlooking the marina - make sure you ask for a room with view. Also important to know is that it is at the end of Palmer street and therefore a fair walking distance from the heart of town, which...

We appreciate your valuable time to provide us with feedback of your recent stay with us. It is great to read that you were happy with the apartment facilities and the fabulous views from our Cityscape apartments. It certainly is a great spot to relax your on own private balcony while watching the sunset! It is disappointing to read however...

If your idea of relaxing is watching in room movies and dining on room service, then this is not the hotel for you. Oaks M offers a new hotel room with a kitchenette and laundry. It is difficult to find with zero signage and no street appeal tucked away down the end of Palmer Street. It is approx. half the...

We stayed at the Oaks M last weekend for the Air Show. Could not have ask for more room was spacious, clean and had everything you require in the kitchenette to prepare a meal. The view over the strand and town have to be seen to be believed. Staff could not be more helpful. Would definitely recommend.

The air show was an absolute blast! The Cityscape apartments would have been one of the best places to view the jets and fireworks along the strand in Townsville.

Oaks M is well located in the 'restaurant district' and easy walking to CBD. Rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious. We face the street and there was some traffic noise late evening but no worse than most city streets produce.

12th floor 2 bed apartment was comfortable. Very noisy from road if doors to balcony were open but quiet enough with them closed. Location not quite central for our needs but travel agent badly advised with this booking.

Stayed 2 nights for busness on the fifth floor. The Room was very comfortable, it had a mini kitchen and laungry as a bonus. The room did have a musty smell which I think was coming from the aircon unit. I turned it off and smell was bearable after opening the balcony door for fresh air. I didnt use the...

Nothing to complain about the hotel. Room are clean and staff very helpful. I stay here about 8 times a year for work and is close to the bars and restaurants. Hotel is in the quieter end of Townsville and easy to find.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Great size studio room with a balcony with chairs to sit outside and enjoy the view. Great king size bed, kitchenette, lounge, and bathroom facilities. Everything clean and a great place to stay. There was a pathway running along the river outside so that you could enjoy a walk - not far away from restaurants
