Great staff

I stayed in a one bedroom unit overlooking the river. The unit was typical Oaks - nice, clean, had everything you need. Love having a balcony and a great view. The difference between this Oaks and others I have stayed in were the staff. In this Oaks they were very friendly, helpful, and professional. The best out of all the Oaks I have stayed and makes the stay that much more enjoyable. I'd always recommend Oaks but double recommend Oaks Gateway.

The "Sugartrain" just down Palmer St about 5 mins from the Oaks. Great food at very reasonable prices. $16 per meal - went there twice with two different lots of people and everyone really enjoyed their meals.

Great Location

The Oaks Gateway On Palmer Townsville location was fantastic being on the corner of Dibbs and Palmer Streets with a great selection of restaurants and bars. The CBD is just a short walk over a footbridge. Our room was well appointed, clean and confortable. The staff were always helpful. We did appreciate the free laundry which was a pleasant surprise. The pool would be improved by some shade from umbrellas. Our stay was most enjoyable.

Great Location

Initially had some issues but after contacting the Manager these were resolved to my total satisfaction. The location of this hotel is great. Even though it has no dining facilities they are all within easy walking distance or located in the same street. Palmer Street is a vibrant dining social precinct. Would stay at this hotel again.

all you need

We have just returned from a week at the Oaks Gateway on Palmer. We had apartment 711, and were very satisfied with it. There is plenty of space and lots of light (as it is a corner apartment), along with a well equipped kitchen and serviceable balcony. The apartment faces south, however, so would be better in summer than winter, at least in this winter given how unseasonably cold North Qld is at present. But that is small quibble. Our only real disappointment was that the otherwise well equipped fitness centre has no hand weights/dumbells, as we are following a training program that requires them. The location is brilliant: a couple of blocks from Woolworths (across Ross Creek via the footbridge then 3 blocks straight up) and right on top of all the good restaurants and eateries in Palmer St. If you like good coffee, try Coffee Dominion in Flinders Square, just across the footbridge, and if you want an excellent dinner go to The Salt Cellar. We celebrated a birthday there and it was very good indeed.

Try lunch at the fish and chip shop a few blocks along Palmer Street on the opposite side of the road from the hotel. A piece of grilled fresh fish and Greek salad makes a filling and delicious meal, and is the cheapest fresh fish that we found in central Townsville.

Great Location

Spent 6 nights here for business, but hubby and daughter tagged along and had a great time because the location was perfect. Restaurants along whole street, footbridge to city, and walking distance to marina meant they didn't have to use the car too much. Great view of river from our comfortable 2 bedroom unit, staff helpful.

Easter Stay

Booked room 6 months ago and thought I would have a nice room overlooking the marina and ocean but no we got a room facing inland looking at a little creek. Furniture on small verandah too big for the space available. TV screen too small. Bed was way to hard for my wife, I enjoyed the size of the bed and the hardness of the mattress.
