Recent guest reviews

Booked for a 3 day period through their website, easy navigation in doing so. We elected to have the kitchenette room, very well equipped. Room spacious, comfortable furnishings. Free WiFi through Timezone the occasional drop out but overall very good. Rooms very quiet. A short walk to Flinder's & Stanley Street to a few new shops and restaurant.

Visited Towsville for bird photography and this location made access to Town Common easy. We walked to ferry terminal but also had a hire car. Nearby supermarket and kitchenette was suitable to self cater. The room was very clean, bed comfortable. Not five star but what more do you need. I think it is good value for money and would stay again. We had a front room and it was a little noisy due to night road works. Next time I would request a rear room.

Stayed one night for an exam in Townsville. Hosts were very accommodating regarding looking after my bags while I explored the city prior to my exam. Rooms were modern, neat and tidy. A pool and warm spa were available, which I unfortunately didn't get to use due to time constraints. Reception staff provided useful information about local events on during the weekend. Very good location close to cafes/restaurant and strand. Hot water turned off 3 minutes into my shower, on two occasions, both in evening and morning. I attempted turning it off and on again but only cold water flowed. The reception staff were polite and helpful, but one in particular asked a lot of questions and made friendly jokes which made me feel slightly uncomfortable, being somewhat shy. Would consider attending again. Overall very good.

Everything is clean, well looked after, central. Perfect for the budget conscious business traveller. I wouldn't holiday there with my family though. It's a bit dated and dour. People were extremely friendly and all was ok.

Structure and clean rooms, good food, friendly staff and very helpful. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Perfect environment for the family. I would recommend it to the family who wants hygiene and relax. By Ravasi Roberto

Went with my husband to celebrate my birthday. Checking in was easy and the staff was very nice. Our room was comfortable and had a view to the street. The hotel is near the main Flinders street and not far from The Strand (Beach). Good view of the Castle hill. Close to bus stop as well. We enjoyed the spa and was rejuvenating. The garden area is nice and has a BBQ. Overall, we had a good time and if we go back to Townsville, would definitely visit this again. It is truly an Oasis in the midst of the city :)

Very pleasant stay and affordable. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and tidy.Double and single in both rooms we had.A small kitchen and good size room.The shower is separate to toilet and although a good setup very small to get in and out of when opening the door.The pool area is lovely with warm spa.Walking distance to some shops and very close to all the must seas. They have a very cafe attached offering good priced breakkie if the continental isnt included.Aircon fans and a couple of chairs and table out front makes for a comfortable stay.

City Oasis Inn Management & staff were wonderful. They provided me with safe accommodation & gave me endless emotional support during my long stay. Nothing was 'too much' to ask. They truly went 'above & beyond' any expectations. Support, phonecalls, taxi's, Dr appointments, privacy & 'free hugs'. Beautiful, beautiful people. The accommodation was 10/10, the laundry & cooking facilities made it a 'home away from home'. The gardens & heated spa were a lovely 'retreat'. Brendon & his staff were wonderful. THANK YOU. I have already re-booked with City Oasis Inn & will continue to do so. Highly recommended for singles, couples, families & pet owners. Xx

The proprietor is very personable and gave great suggestions for our very short visit. There is a stunning pool , heated spa and relaxation area. Facilities were modern and clean. We had a basic room because we were passing through and it was fine. There were tables overlooking the pools or the front view for drinks or brekkie. Offered a free late checkout. Lovely motel Wish they were all like this.

Stayed here with my husband for 1 night (Sunday) as a stop over while driving through to Port Douglas. I had pre-booked a standard room and on our arrival, around 2pm, we were given a friendly welcome by Aj who told us he had upgraded us to an Executive room on the 2nd floor. It had a larger bed and a balcony facing Wills St. Aj asked if stairs were a problem, which they weren't, and proceeded to come out of the reception to show us the parking area etc. and advise us how to get to the local attractions. The room was quite large and very clean. It had good size cupboard space, a desk and chair, also a leather chair, and bed side tables. The bathroom was lovely, fully tiled, very modern with the shower over the bath, white fluffy towels and shampoo/ soap etc. It was a pity we were only here for 1 night. I booked direct with the owners and breakfast was a "bonus offer" at the time. It was plenty (yoghurt/fresh fruit/cereal/toast/tea and coffee) to start the day. During out stay we met Brendan who was also very friendly and helped us on dining options etc. I would definitely recommend this place for the friendly hospitality, its' value for money and central location to the city and other sights.
