It is neat, clean, the staff are amazing and you will struggle to find a better location.

Still, its definitely value for money and the bus to the stadium stops right out front!

The location is unbeatable and the views even from the 3rd floor were still exquisite.

Simple, self contained apartments with awesome views from every room ..I always stay at Aquarius whilst in Townsville .. As a business traveller as the don't have room service or mini bar it could be more convenient if they arranged a local restaurant/ takeaway place to deliver

Both times I, and my husband, have stayed we needed to extend our stay. This was not a problem, and was appreciated very much! Our son is undergoing treatment in Townsville, where he lives, so each time we come up to see him, we will be staying at Aquarius! Thank you, for making our sad times a little easier 😊

Great location on the Strand,”

The views.

Tha Aquarius is in the best location for value for money. Excellent restaurants close by. Rooms are very comfortable with good beds. Best to request a room on Level 5 or above to take advantage of the fabulous views. Staff very helpful and friendly. I highly recommend this hotel for good position and value for money.

Great location overlooking the ocean”

Location, Quick check-in

This was a pretty simple hotel located right on the Esplanade with a decent number of restaurants next door. We had a 11th floor room facing the ocean for a decent price. Being the tallest building in Townsville, it gives you great views even though the hotel seems slightly old.

Excellent location, beach apartment style ”

kitchenette, large balcony with outdoor seating, pool, parking provided

We stayed at the Aquarius around Christmas Day. While the hotel services were reduced during the holiday period, we had no problems checking in using Agoda and were received quickly and promptly. The balcony was excellent with a view over the Promenade and water. The only downside was the condition of the flooring, bathroom, overall furnishing. The furnishings were well used, not run-down, but well used. Apartment style

Great view and easy walking to various restaurants along The Strand

We enjoyed our stay at Aquarius On The Beach. The rooms although not luxurious were more than adequate and the service was fine. Only disadvantage about re-booking at this hotel was the car parking. The carpark was always full and we had to park our car out on the street in front of the hotel.

Wanted peace and got a good deal”

I wouldn't have been happy to pay the full price but with a good deal this place amounts to a fine option. It isn't fancy but it does have a comfortable configuration, access to kitchenette (microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge etc,), a comfortable bed and seating area and it has a great view from every room. I couldn't hear my neighbours at all. I found my room clean and staff kept it that way

Location on the Strand was great but the hotel is pretty dated, and hotel staff was ok.. if you don’t want to spend too much money and stay in this area of Townsville, it’s worth the money.. No restaurants or cafe in the hotel but there’s one next door called Watermark.

Aquarius was the best part of our stay!”

Excellent staff, room and we think we had the best view in Townsville.

We arrived very late (about 11pm) and we were looked after a man (who may have been the owner!) who was very friendly and efficient. And i was excited that we were on the 7th floor. The room was clean and modern and had a kitchenette, bath and a balcony! The view of the lights was spectacular. I'll never forget waking early and having to sit out on the balcony to watch the sun rise. Later, after a little more sleep, I sat on the balcony to watch a ski race and the stunt plane. It was all just magic. Also I noticed that it was very quiet in our room. I could not hear other guests.
