Great view indeed particularly for price and very comfortable bed however spoiled somewhat by the extent of smokers who stay at motels and hotels these days I find with this one being no exception with a continuous stream of smoke and coughing from balconies around us even ash coming down past our balcony. Pity as we feel now in 2017...

I am amazed at all the glowing reviews but perhaps we stayed in one of the not so good rooms/floors. We stayed on level 12 and as soon as you get off the lift there is a horrible smell. Thankfully our room did not smell as bad. Two doors down from our room was a door that was left open...

My partner and I stayed here as a quick overnight escape from parental duties and loved it! Amazing views, nice pool and so many restaurants close by. The staff were friendly and the bed was quite comfortable. We will be staying here again. My only comment would be the lack of parking. We had to park on the street when...

Thanks Judoash. When the FREE off-street parking fills, the on-street parking is also FREE. Although other suburbs may have some problems, with so many people using and just sitting, watching and enjoying the Strand, issues with vehicles in this area are rare. The Strand also has extensive CCTV coverage adding another layer of security along the boardwalk and surrounds for...

Booked at the last minute a twin room on the 8th floor, room was clean and tidy, bedding reasonably comfortable, staff at reception was friendly and helpful, the only cons were the hideous sliding door to the bathroom which got stuck more than once locking me inside and the air conditioner exhaust which blew hot air on the balcony while...

This tall tower block - glaring red from a distance! - has a chequered history and towers over all other buildings on The Strand. En suite rooms/units all face the sea but vary in shape and size as formerly all different owners, We stayed twice as we travelled the coast and asked to have room 812 again on our 2nd...

We certainly stand head and shoulders above the rest. And we like to think of it as somewhere, between "Tangerine" and "Paprika". "Red" is soooo last year. Thanks for the feedback.

Well what can I say. The view is fabulous you can't beat it. The room is small but has everything you need. Parking was an issue as it was full last night when we arrived however we were able to park across the road on the strand which has no restriction. Recommend it and the price is reasonable only twin...

Glad you enjoyed your stay Carol. All rooms have Queen beds (ask about our rooms with Comfort toppers too - they are dreamy). Most rooms also have a Pull-out sofa bed or single as well.

Rooms are bright and clean. Beds were comfortable and the location on the Strand is perfect, as it sits right next to the Watermark Hotel. Staff at check in were really efficient, and answered any question over the course of our stay in a friendly and professional manner. Highly recommend Aquarius if going to Townsville.
