Townsville Central Hotel, South Townsville
The staff were amazing, they were very helful, obliging, polite and eager to please at all times.The hotel is within an easy walk of the Cowboys and the CBD. A great Red Cross Op shop in the Main street. We would definately stay at Townsville Central Hotel again.

Quick one night stop.
A good stop over spot for the night. The room was fine, the parking was nice, this hotel actually had ice available(we found this to be a big thing in smaller hotels along the coast), there were plenty of restaurants within walking distance. It was a bit of walk to get to the ferry (15-20 min).

Short Stay
I enjoyed my stay of a few days even though it was very hot. This hotel is not in the CBD but it is not very far from it. All the places I wanted to visit were within walking distance. My only complaint about the hotel is that there was no cool water jug in the room.
