lovely stay - gorgeous pool + hot tub - see above! - has to be the hidden gem of Townsville this place! Thanks very much to the staff and would never hesitate to book here again should we come back. 2k from ferry terminal to magnetic island.

Dear beecus Thanks for your very kind review. Being located in the city centre and also able to offer our guests a little oasis retreat is our point of difference. After a long day of either working or sight-seeing in beautiful Townsville, it can be very therapeutic to be able to sit in the hot tub, take in the lush...

This is our second stay, they did not let us down, the check in staff member was very courteous and extremely helpful. Well positioned motel, walking distance to the best dining area in Townsville. Great value for money, would highly recommend this motel.

Travelled to Townsville for business and our travel provider booked me into City Oasis. It was nice and tidy, centrally located between the Strand, Flinders St and Chapel Hill. The pool is beautiful (especially at night), and rooms are nice and tidy although the bed felt a bit short (think it was a standard double, I'm used to a Queen)....

Stayed 3 nights on this occasion. Indication that it was good was staying a second time. Close to town centre, The Strand, (both good places for restaurants), Castle Hill for some scenic walks, free gym membership (in-hours), nice pool, and I was even given bonus continental breakfasts. Brendan, the owner/operator, works very hard and long hours to provide a clean...

Booked a room for a one night stay on the way to Townsville last minute. I was very impressed with the customer service and the cleanliness of the hotel. They let us check in early and even took the time to explain where to go for dinner. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel, it's a very nice place...

I was pleasantly surprised with the wonderful service that Aj provided to us, my parents came with me on this trip and Aj did everything he could to make sure they were comfortable in their room. The rooms are very clean, rates are very reasonable and Aj offered advice on things to see and do. Will definitely return! Thank you!

Good location and great air conditioning in the rooms. The pool area was very relaxing and the reception staff were great. A pleasant stay even though we weren't there a lot, it was a welcome relief from the tropical heat.

Dear Sharon B Thanks for your review. Glad the pool was able to relieve you from the tropical heat. And we definitely agree with you: great air conditioning is a MUST! Annette

Friendly staff, very helpful and made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to make our kids feel special. The pool was an absolute standout, the kids loved it. We only stayed one night as we were travelling through but if we ever visit Townsville again, we will definitely stay here again.

BCINQLD, Manager at City Oasis Inn, responded to this review

Dear Sam D Thanks for your comments about City Oasis. Hospitality is about making guests feel welcome and so glad you felt this. Our pool usually proves a hit - with big kids (ie adults!) also. Next time, stay awhile - Townsville is a great city. Annette
