Itara Apartments

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Itara apartments are perfect in every way. Friendly helpful staff, comfortable spacious unit with everything we could want inside them and a beautiful view of the river. Once we found Itara apartments we wouldn't go anywhere else ever again.

An 8 night stay watching England cricket and also some tourism. The Itara and Jacana apartments are in several buildings by the river on a complex which includes the cricket ground and a large (and free) municipal pool. There is a big shopping centre and many restaurants close by and good bus access to the city centre (which is quite a way away). The reception staff were friendly and helpful and happy to give out more internet access vouchers and supplies of toiletries whenever we needed them. It is a bit of a faff to have to keep updating devices with vouchers for the internet however Our apartment was on the top floor (4th) of a block and overlooked the river - perfect. In our block there were 3 flats on each floor, some apartments seem to be occupied by permanent residents, The bedroom and living areas both had ceiling fans and air conditioning. There was a washing machine in the bathroom and a reasonably well equipped kitchen, although slightly lacking in utensils and bowls - there is a dishwasher. Our room was serviced once during our stay which was fine for us as we don't mind cleaning up after ourselves. Each apartment in itara has an underground car parking space

I would like to say that these were the best units we have ever stayed in. It was a wow as we walked in the door, because it was much larger than we expected. The place was so clean, and the view was great. We were impressed with the security. .

Great value for money with a fully self contained and beautiful room. With gorgeous views of the river we were able to truly relax. Shopping centre and restaurants were close by so we were able to enjoy a short easy walk to access these.

Absolutely perfect! Great peaceful location with stunning views over the river, so close to beautiful Riverway parks and huge pools. Apartment had everything and close to shops. Staff wonderful. Highly recommended.

Great spot. Visited recently on business and found the apartments modern and very convenient to amenities. Recommend anytime and found a lot of great meal options in easy walking distance. Staff also very helpful.

A soothing, riverfront location with a secure car park, clean, air-conditioned rooms with a starter pack of toiletries, kitchen and laundry necessities. Late arrivals are no problem when you stay at Itara apartments. If you're on the last flight of the day - no worries; the instructions are clear, the safe box is easy to find, all the information you need is then at your fingertips and when you reach your room the fans are circulating - a bonus in the Townsville heat. When you do meet the reception staff the next morning they could not be more friendly or helpful. Great location; a short walk from a myriad of shops and food outlets, gallery, sporting facilities, right on the river boardwalk - great riverside walking loop , with its own pool or in close proximity to the the public pool (also a wonderful facility). Great if you are visiting James Cook University with Townsville City and The Strand not too far away. A self contained kitchen and laundry with good appliances and balcony with outdoor setting. Very comfortable - I could not have asked for more.

The apartment was beautiful and clean, and very tastefully furnished. The main bedroom had a gorgeous view of the river. The parking was very convenient and secure. We will definitely stay there next time.

Great place to stay with friendly helpful staff. the location is great, peaceful and quite on the river. The apartments are huge with lots of room for a family. The only negative was the small sofa, why would you only have seating for 2 in such a large unit and it was old and uncomfortable

This was our second stay and we found the accommodation great, spacious rooms, comfy beds, well equipped kitchen for short stay. The situation is wonderful with the Riverway just outside only drawback was traffic noise.
