We had a studio ocean view room. The view was terrific and amazing sunrises over water with Palm trees in the foreground. Great for photos. Clean and tidy room, serviced daily. only minor issue we had was the shower had some water pipe rattle issues so needed to adjust taps a few times during daily showers to stop the loud noise of the rattle (overall a minor issue, and likely difficult for maintenance to fix. Water pressure for shower was strong so no issue with taking a shower. Front desk staff were very helpful and professional. Would recommend as a great option for stays in Townsville.

We have stayed here before and love its convenience and wonderful outlook. I have a disabled Mother so to be close to cafes and be able to have a nice stroll along the watersedge was perfect.
