Civic Guesthouse is in ideal location in the city. Everything is at walking distant the staff and guests are friendly, guest are loud at times mainly at night. But it’s the social space Inclusive you get to meet all walks of life. I will definitely stay at Civic Guesthouse again on my next visit to Townsville.
