Good location, nice hotel
Really enjoyed my stay here, check in staff were quick and very helpful. If you don't have your room serviced you get $10 to spend in the bar/restaurant which was a great incentive.

Townsville stopover
This is a comfortable hotel located in the restaurant strip of this part of south Townsville. It is a quick walk across the road to the Townsville yacht club or a drink at one of the many bars and pubs in the strip. Free undercover parking was a bonus.

clean quiet room but very run down and needs a face lift. expensive for this level of comfort.

No recommendations
I was looking forward to staying at Rydges Townsville. But upon arrival my room was dirty. I found a used bandaid in the shower dish where the soap goes. There was no milk to make a cuppa on a Sunday night and had to go out late & buy some from the convenience store. I have stayed in Rydges before and can not compare. It is very tired and cleanliness is a must. I can not recommend at all.
