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.

Stayed at the Aquarius for two nights in April based on the recommendation of friends. The Aquarius is a high rise hotel block on The Strand with all rooms looking directly out to sea including views of Magnetic Island. A great aspect and a lovely location to stay when in Townsville. The room on Level 9 was a good sized...

All rooms have a balcony overlooking The Strand, which is the main beach at Townsville. Reception staff are very helpful, try to steer clear of rooms ending in 02, 03, they are opposite the lifts. Not that the lifts are noisy, it is the guests coming in late that make the noise.

We arrived and were greeted by two very friendly receptionists, who wasted no time getting us checked in and telling us that we had a free room upgrade to the topmost floor. Our room was clean and tidy, and the house keepers were very friendly when they knocked on the door and asked if they could make up our room....
