4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed at this hotel with my partner for one night whilst travelling around Australia. Normally we go budget and stick with a motel but this hotel actually came up cheaper! Very clean and tidy. Lovely shower and bed, to get a great nights sleep! We even got complimentary continental breakfast - bonus! Staff were really friendly. A very nice hotel.

I was very impressed by the overall high standard I encountered during my stay. The room was comfortable and clean, there was plenty of linen should I have needed more, and the staff were very accommodating!! A huge shout out to Nathan who made the best Cafe Mocha in Townsville!!

Thanks to the great staff and managers for making our stay amazing! Definitely recommend Central Hotel to Singles, Couples or Families. Clean rooms and well positioned for easy access to nightlife clubs and bars.

the room was fantastic very clean comfortable beds staff cant do enough for you and very accommodating they go that extra mile always greeted with a smile Breakfast Monday Tuesday was amazing. 5 stars to the chef. Nathan the bartender very friendly polite young man again couldn't do enough for us always happy if I lived around the corner i would be here every night the staff here know about hospitality. my only negative comment or thought would be not enough privacy in the swimming pool.

Well maintained rooms, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, wonderful helpful staff. Affordable and worth every cent. On site pool, spa, gym, and a great restaurant downstairs. Will be staying here again when i'm in Townsville next time.

Excellent facilities and the best buffet breakfast in town! The hotel is close to everything you need for a great holiday. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. Definitely will be staying again on our next holiday.

Such a great location, right near everything and shops! fantastic staff and facilities!! The food options were always fresh and delicious! Rooms were immaculate and bed soo comfortable. Definitely be coming back !

Great location, walking distance to the mall, and Cowboys Leagues Club. The manager drove us to our restaurant dinner meeting as we couldnt get a cab as it was football night. Great friendly service. The Chef provided an excellent variety of food for the breakfast buffet. Great coffees and very reasonably priced.

We stayed centrally in Townsville for business not realising the Cowboys Broncos football game was on, no taxis available! The delightful manager of the hotel got his private car out and drove us and another chap to our restaurant and him to the airport. Staff lent me a mouse mat when my computer was playing up, juggled rooms so I did not have to share a double bed with my work colleague on a fully booked night in town, all staff went Above and beyond, staff were so very helpful, the rooms are typical hotel but spotless Breakfast substantial. Easy walk everywhere will stay again next visit. Thank you Townsville Central

When I checked out, there was a rugby league football match about to start and, as a result, there were no taxis. As I waited over ten minutes for the taxi I ordered, I was worried I was going to miss my flight. Out of the blue, the manager Andrew (who was off duty) found me outside the hotel and offered to give me a lift to the airport, and also was driving two other patrons to a restaurant. This was just such a generous, amazing and unexpected offer, and I am so grateful because I may otherwise have missed my flight. I would add then when I checked in and there were a few problems with the wifi in my room, the staff at the desk (I think her name was Ashley) was incredibly helpful and moved my room, including offering a free hot breakfast for my troubles. The location is great, staff are friendly and helpful, and so much to the point that I am actually writing my first ever Tripadvisor review. What mor ecan you ask for?
