Pros: Apartment was big and clean and well located. Shower was over the bath which I hate, but the water pressure was great!
Cons: I HATE showers over baths. Also the blinds in the bedroom may as well not have been on the windows at all. Being on the first floor we had street lights until dawn and then the sunshine beaming in through the cracks in the blinds. They were the worst I have ever seen and comptely unacceptable. Went up to see if we could have an evening swim. The pool was freezing and looked like it had never been cleaned.

7.9 Good
Pros: Bed was so good to sleep on
Cons: Front area on 12 People keeped smoking on our area
5.4 Okay
Pros: The location was perfect. Just a stroll to cafes, restaurants and the strand. Off street parking was very helpful.
Cons: The “family” room that we booked was not well set up. There was no real lounge/ living room and the dining table filled the whole kitchen area. The photos I saw when booking the room looked much bigger, and there were three bean bags for the kids in the photos but only one in the room. So the kids fighting over the bean bag was fun... not. Also, the shower in the main bedroom did not work. It either went burning hot or freezing cold. Everything in the room seemed miniature (the shower entries were tiny, so lucky we are not large people, and even my 7 year old commented on the “tiny toilets” haha), as well as the pool which is cramped into the front of the reception building (which again the photos on the listing don’t show). Also the bathroom sink in the main bedroom had gunk in the drain that appears to have been there accumulating forever. So gross. Made me gag every time I brushed my teeth and looked at it. Very gross.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: While Townsville might not be the place you went to spend a whole vacation, it's the perfect place to stay for a night or two during an east coast roadtrip or to visit Magnetic Island. Classique Bed & Breakfast, however, is a place you don't want to leave anymore. Not only is it a lovely house with lovely rooms and beautiful bathrooms. It's also host Russell who makes a stay there quite enjoyable. Attentive without being intrusive might describe our impression best. The breakfast - seasonal fruit platter, toast, selection of jams etc. - was served on a beautiful terrace. All in all it was an absolute pleasure to stay there!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The atmospheric ambiance of the traditional “queenslander” property, plus the personal service from the proprietor.
Cons: Location was a little remote from the waterfront but it’s proximity to the station suited us. Not really a wide choice of bars or restaurants nearby.

7.1 Good
Pros: The room was great- large, modern, comfortable King size bed, huge tv
Cons: They only make up your room every third day "to save you money". Free internet is stated as inclusive but you really have to pay $20 for a 5 hour voucher. Our back patio was against the swimming pool which was nice but the band played LOUD on Friday and Saturday nights until late - no sleep before our early dive. The bistro food is barely average at best. Great bartender, lousy reception.

7.0 Good
Pros: Location
Cons: Carpet needs shampooing
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Right across the road from the beach, pool right outside our door, what more could you ask for! Would like more information in the room book, bus timetable etc. Also, would be wonderful if accommodation places knew when areas were closed (due to controlled burning etc). Otherwise, staff were awesome! Room served a purpose for the evening and even better the staff were accommodating enough to split the bed from a double down to two singles.
7.1 Good
Pros: Staff, complex. Position was great.

7.1 Good
Pros: Location is very good and reception staff is friendly and helpful.
Cons: Air circulation is not the best. The air conditioner is a bit noisy.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: On checking in we were offered an upgrade to a larger room which we took. It was very spacious with a lovely large balcony, cooking facilities and a wet room, though the decor was rather tired and in need of an upgrade. Unfortunately, we didn’t discover until later the toilet didn’t flush properly and maintenance was unable to resolve the issue. Consequently, the hotel deducted the cost of overnight parking and the upgrade from my bill. That said, the hotel is in a great location, on the same road as many restaurants yet it wasn’t noisy. The staff were very helpful and the WiFi was great.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything. Friendly and welcoming staff on arrival. Beautiful room.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, clean tidy, modern
Cons: Parking arrangements OK but have to pay extra for secure parking
7.0 Good
Pros: Room was large
Cons: Very disappointed that there is not enough parks available to park safely to access your room simply not good enough. If you do want to have a secure park you are charged an extra $15 on top of rate to stay safe and secure. In a busy night you cannot even get a free car park within a suitable walking distance. To feel safe you are forced to pay a car park fee which is kinda sneaky I feel. Each paying customer should be guaranteed a place to park without the sneaky extra.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was superb. We had a function at the Brewery and we were able to walk to it. The staff were delightful and we were upgrade to a king apartment which was just fantastic. Loved it

7.1 Good
Pros: Amazing staff, comfortable stay, nice atmosphere.
Cons: The car park was stupid, difficult to locate and not great for normal sedans as the steep driveway scraps the bottom of the car when going down to the car park. Avoid the undercover park if in a small-med car. They did have some parks on the street, but you’ll be lucky to get one.

7.5 Good
Pros: The bed was very comfortable, and the staff were lovely. The in room breakfast was very nice.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Good options for dining. Lovely views from window.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The pool area is amazing. The decor is phenomenal. The food, hint miss songs, is absolutely incredible.
Cons: Unfortunately, I was double charged the day I checked out. I pre paid my room before I left and then on check out day, saw the company had further removed another $500.00. When I went to reception, I explained that I had pre paid and was double charged. I was told the money would be refunded, to which I was also told that I needed to pay a $20.00 room service bill This negatively impacted my experience and had the place not had been so busy, I would have insisted to see a manager. I felt that could have waived the $20.00 room service as they had double charged me for accommodation. Whilst the money was refunded, I had to continue my holiday a $500.00 less than I had saved, so I missed out on doing certain activities. I was also charged a fee for the refund (by my bank, it this was because of the ville). It also took a week to refund the money as this doesn’t happen instanteously with credit cards. The place is absolutely amazing, but that customer service was incredibly poor.
