Budget Friendly accomodation
Simple room at a budget friendly price. However it does need little more upgrade & maintenance. eg the toilet seat is loose on the bowl. The window shades were broken, carpet had a musty smell. We advised the receptionist about the musty carpet smell. She did spray a freshener but the smell returned. We didnt bother to go down again & tell them again. The room itself was little dark for my liking (may because of the colour of the paint & with just 1 small window) Continental Breakfast was ok with yogurt, mueseli, fruits, croissants & coffee. The location of the hotel was however great/convenient with the best fish & chips restaurant close by.

Happy traveler.
After spending a day in the Townsville heat, it was good to book in and get to my room. On entering my room I was thankful the staff had already turned my airconditioning on, which worked well. Shower had great pressure. Room was large enough for my overnight stay. Location is prime, situated across from Townsvilles best steak house. Parking was easy.

Short, simple Stay
Always a good stay. Simple room at a great price. Had a few drinks with friends down stairs, then went out for tea on palmer street. We really only used the room to get ready, sleep then shower and get going again. Continental breakfast was good.
