Enjoyed listening to the sea through my balcony window all night long plus a bit of traffic along the stand. Room was clean and well cared for. Laundry on the first floor also worked well. No food at present bit it looks like they are renovating the kitchen.

My husband and I went down for the Cowboys-Broncos game, and were pleased with the reasonable prices - well, reasonable for that particular weekend anyway. We booked with an external booking company, and later had to cancel the 2nd night, which was done with no hassles at all from the hotel or external company. We called ahead on the day...

We stayed in this hotel for one night and were very happy with its location, as is was facing the strand, gave us views of the ocean and magnetic island, also very close to many restaurants and shops. Once we found a parking spot for our car, we just walked everywhere. (Parking area provided at the back is fairly small)...

Very good hotel offering amazing views on the beach and the "Strand". Location is perfect with lots of good restaurants nearby. Rooms are a bit old and need some updates, parking tends to be full most of the times. Staff are very helpful and give great attention to all guests. Free wifi but slow and disconnects frequently Despite some minor...

This hotel has the best location of any in Townsville, right on the Strand with amazing views from the balcony. They are still renovating so the Horizon rooms are on high floors but are daggy in decor. If you move lower to the 'executive' rooms it's more noisy from the road but the rooms are nicer. However I don't know...

We stayed at Aquarius on the Beach for two nights last week, we checked in late afternoon receptionist was friendly but didn't go out of her way to give us any further information (must have been shift changeover!). Can't fault the room at all, it was spacious, clean, the bathroom had a bath and the balcony gave us great views...

I could not find one bad thing about this hotel , the rooms were exceptionally clean and the view was absolutely wonderful Upon arriving I was greeted by the staff at the front desk who were very welcoming and friendly and assured me they could help in any way if I needed anything. I highly recommend.

Exceptional reception staff. Big fridge. Clever housekeeping staff. They disconnected everything I was charging on mistaken assumption it might damage devices. The location is wonderful but recall Australian provincial towns are spread out.

Book studio room 104 via accomtownsville.com.au to make sure you get a newly refurbished room and an extra-large balcony! Walking out onto the huge balcony every morning was an absolute joy! Great cooking facilities in the kitchen and nice homely touches.
