The Aquarius is in a great location. The views from the rooms over The Strand and over to Magnetic Island are spectacular. The rooms are pokey when you are staying a week. The rooms are serviced daily and kept clean. Close to some lovely restaurants.

We always stay here, and have ALWAYS been very happy with our room and the service! Be aware that there are renovated rooms that are on the higher levels and cost a little more but have been happy on every level! Great location, great view, great pool!

We were recommended to stay here and yes the views were awesome however the rooms were a little dated. The air con took forever to cool the room down we had to leave it on for 24 hours. Great location though close to the beach, city and everything else.

An ideal location, on the Strand. We were on the 5th floor and still had a good view of the ocean. The room was not huge but was adequate for our short stay. We did notice a little traffic noise, as well as some noise from the unit above. Neither of which was too disturbing overall. The room was clean...

Beautiful location on the strand, with views out to Magnetic island and Cleveland bay in our 11th floor room. We were in a superior view, refurbished room, the view was superior, but the refurbishment wasn't! Room was adequate, bathroom small but nicely done, I feel everything was on a budget, for instance tap was loose. The bedroom was again cheaply...

Have stayed at many hotels in Townsville and this definitely has the best view and excellent access to the Strand. The view was amazing and listening to the ocean (even from the seventh floor) relaxing. In the middle of the Stand where there is swimming in stinger nets, or the rock pool and a free kids water park. Great running...

A bit disappointing...Yes, we had an incredible view of the bay. That was the best part. The room was average. You had to pay $2.50 a day for the use of a pool towel. Really? Also, when I asked for ice I was told it was $1.00 for a small ziplock bag. Views aren't everything.

This is not a four star hotel. Other than the nice view there isn't anything exciting about it. The rooms are basic. The kitchette consists of a microwave, toast, sink and a couple of plates so cannot really cook anything. They take a holding fee on your credit card upon arrival. I had to chase and chase again to get...

This was only a short stay for us and the room could have been a little bigger but it did include a kitchenette which was great. The room had a balcony with beautiful views towards Magnetic Island. Walk into town via the Esplanade takes about fifteen minutes. Pool also very nice.

We had a 10th floor corner apartment. This gave us extra room in the kitchenette. The views from up here are lovely. The room was fine but the building is a bit dated. The corridor leading to the apartment was smelly - needed ventilation, but once in the apartment there was no problem. Reception staff were helpful but reception is...
