Don't judge this hotel by the outside look. It is the ugliest building in Queensland. But the rooms in side are great. Great place to stay for business trips and is in the CBD. Food is nice and clean rooms. Big rooms easy to base your work trip round. Staff are really friendly and helpful.

This hotel was very clean and most surprising was having cooking facilities. The room was actually a sitting room and kitchen with a separate bedroom. I found the front desk staff very helpful. It was disappointing to have no view from my level 4 room overlooking the buildings in Flinders street. My only complaint is something the hotel cannot control...

How can a building in the cbd have no parking and expect you to pay extra for secure parking somewhere else. Doors were falling off the cubicles in the restaurant toilet. Food was awesome and service awesome but the building needs a refurb

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.

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.
