The photos on the website make the hotel look a lot nicer than what it is. Good price for the room we had. Beds were comfortable and bathroom had upgraded showerhead which was great. Good location as well! The elevators seemed a bit dodgy and were very loud at night. Room walls are thin and could hear the people around us clearly. Room is very small with a window that cannot open. Aircon was great though. Club downstairs was VERY loud as well on the Friday night. Staff were friendly and housekeeping did a great job. Wouldn't recommend the cafe downstairs, coffee was blah and service was under par, walk a little further up to City lane for a good brekky and coffee.

Value deal, basic room, bed was comfy and shower was hot. Inconsistent front desk service - a couple of staff were lovely and a couple were just plain rude. Reception area had a funky, almost sewer-like, smell that didn't dissipate over the 4 nights of our stay. Not an especially positive vibe to walk in to. Housekeeping ladies were lovely and very helpful.

The Chifley is a great place to base yourself for a good Cowboy's Experience. The Club is 100m down the street. As a Cowboys Member you pay $6 per head and you get return bus tickets to the game. Bus departs from the Club. Post game you can go to the Club eat, drink and rub shoulders with the players. The walk back to the Chifley is so easy. Sunday you can check out the Markets in Finders St Mall before the 11:00 am check out.

We stayed here for four nights and found it to be extremely good value for money! The hotel is central to everything, so if you have no car it's perfect. You can walk to Castle Hill, Palmer Street, the city and the strand! Whilst the Chifley Plaza is no Hilton, it's fantastic for what you pay for! Tidy, good air conditioning and modern decor. The service is good, there is also a free daily newspaper and free Wifi! We would both absolutely stay here again! Thank-you Chifley Plaza!

Stayed here for 9 nights in July, enjoyed my stay. Apart from issues with the internet one night and the occasional loud noise from the nearby nightclub and street sweepers I was happy with the hotel. Clean hotel, friendly staff who were happy to answer any questions, and in a great location close to everything.

Great convenient location for walking to shops and restaurants. The room was moderate in size with a comfortable bed and the bathroom was spotless. It also was nice and quiet considering being situated right in town.

This hotel is literally around the corner from Flinders Road and across the bridge to the main high street, making it very convenient, but still away from all the noise. Basic hotel that probably has the best water pressure in a shower that I've ever had. Saying that the hotel room, hallway and elevator are a bit dated though they have tried with the bathrooms. I can recommend this hotel to someone that wants a comfortable bed in a great location.

It is clean and comfortable. The room service was excellent. It is also situated at the nice location. It is very quiet and easy to relax well in the night. It is in the heart of the city and surrounded by various food stalls. You can access to different cultural food restaurant within a short walk. It also locates closer to the strands and can have a relax evening in the beach. It also closer to the airport. Most importantly the price is very cheap. Therefore, I have no hesitation in recommending the hotel for a stay in Townsville.

as we checked in in our room the aircon didnt work very well so went down and told the staff that im not happy ,she immediately was offering us a different room. Staff very friendly and helpfull. Will be back thats for sure

Chifley Plaza Townsville offers an excellent front house and room services. I am very impressed with the cleanness of the room and friendly staff. The hotel is very conveniently located in the CBD of Townsville which allows me access meeting place, restaurants and shopping centres. I particularly liked the Pure Herbs bath and body range available in my room. I have no hesitation to recommend this hotel to my colleagues and friends.
