The rooms were very large. The location was excellent, close to the city and restaurants and cafes and the weekend markets in the main street. Full kitchen and laundry services in the apartment. Air conditioning not working very well though (not very cool and one leaked!) Some more or larger furniture choices would have been better and no seating was...

I recently stayed here for 4 nights with a friend & had a wonderful time. The unit we stayed in was beautifully presented & so comfortable. The pool & BBQ Area is one of the largest I have ever seen. The managers Natasha & Wayne were so helpful & friendly. I recommend these apartments to anyone traveling to Townsville.

THE worst customer service I have ever encountered from a Manager. So very defensive, rude and unhelpful. Fire Alarm in room was missing the cover and backup battery; no balcony furniture; bathroom sink hole missing; dishwasher broken; bedside table missing; lamp missing; etc etc endless.

We booked months in advance for 3 nights for a family of 2 adults and 3 children. The prices were fantastic and the accommodation itself was fantastic. This place had the potential to be amazing unfortunately it's not. There were only enough beds for 4 people so one had to sleep on the couch which wasn't a sofa bed, the...

Good Location to everything and handy for families or couples traveling together separate bedrooms and bathrooms, kitchen and lounge make it a comfortable stay. Close to most extractions by car and walking only a couple of blocks to city.

Stayed overnight in a spacious 2 bedroom unit. We usually stay at apartments just up the road near Hogs Breath Cafe (and we'll being going back to them), but thought we'd try BW. Check In - via intercom, impersonal and not really welcoming. Room - spacious, semi clean. For a relatively newish unit, very knocked around, loose light fittings, dirty...

We thoroughly enjoyed our time staying here.
