Lovely old Queenslander which was constructed that way to take advantage of breezes and air circulation. Unfortunately when you leave doors and windows open, flies tend to invite themselves in. Not a problem in the bedroom if you keep the door closed. Also the bedroom temperature was comfortable because it had it's own a/c unit. A couple of fans at... More

It is , as explained unfortunate that Townsville has got water restrictions at the moment and the spa is not on. With respect to servicing ,usually guests that only stay for two nights are more than happy to ask for anything that they require .

We had a nice 1 night stop here to break up a long drive. Having been out for some dinner we had a lovely evening to ourselves just playing pool & darts in the communal living area. The aircon in the room was much needed & worked brilliantly and, as everyone has said, the tropical fruit breakfast was a perfect... More

Russell was a wonderful and polite host. He makes a lovely breakfast of local fruits and food, and fresh coffee. There is a lovely billiard table, and an old style classic QLD cottage. We enjoyed the company of the fellow guests at breakfast.
