From the moment we walked in and were warmly greeted by staff, we got a great feel about this complex. The WOW was that our apartment literally sat on the Ross River making for a very relaxing stay with a great view. The apartment was very well equipped, more so than most holiday apartments. Everyone was super friendly and helpful going the extra mile. Thank you Itara-Jacana, we will be back.

Disappointing! Checked in at 7.30pm after a 4 hour drive and all we were wanting was a hot shower. No hot water!! I called the after hours number which I spoke to a staff member which sent the duty manager to our room. She felt the hot water and said yes it is warm but there is nothing I can do until tomorrow morning. She also advised there were no other rooms that she could move us to. Mind you she is standing here with a scarf around her neck as it’s the first week of cooler weather. No customer service and very rude staff.

Hot Water Tempering valves are a mandatory safety device installed in all Apartment, to ensure no one is scalded by hot water in the shower Unfortunately on this occasion this safety device has been activated only allowing warm water to the shower, there was full hot water throughout the rest of the apartment, just not the shower Once this was reported we investigated immediately, but unfortunately nothing could be done until the following morning when we had a Licensed plumber attend and replace the device In relation to your comments on customer Service, Instead of allowing us to focus on trying to deal with the actual problem…. most of our time was taken up dealing with personal attacks, threats of bad reviews and demands for compensation And because we were unable to provide you with the answers you wanted to hear my staff were deemed to be rude and unhelpful Unfortunately some problems can’t be resolved at night or with the wave of a magic wand no matter how hard we try

Our stay in Townsville was made all the better because of our wonderful room. We had a two bedroom self contained unit that was situated right on the bank of the river, it was sensational to sit on our balcony at the end of the day and relax with a cool breeze and wine. The room was spacious, well appointed and clean. The staff were helpful and always polite. It is situated close to shops and restaurants (short drive).
