Best Western has added the Islington Apartments in Townsville to its growing hotel family.
Located a 15 minute drive from Townsville Airport and short stroll into Townsville’s CBD, the self-rated 4.5- star Best Western Islington Apartments offer 30 stylishly appointed one, two and three bedroom self-contained apartments ideal for groups seeking short or long stays.
There is a 25 metre lap pool nestled in the centre of the modern apartment complex and air-conditioning in each apartment. The complex also offers a gym, spa, sauna, and fully self-contained kitchen and BBQ area onsite with cafes and restaurants next to the property.
Best Western Australasia’s Chief Executive Rob Anderson has welcomed the addition.
“Best Western Islington Apartments is our only property in Townsville, offering great value for those who prefer cooking meals in their own kitchen, or using free WiFi to stay in touch over social media while away,” he said.
While summer will draw the holiday crowds and see increased tourism to Magnetic Island, Anderson said it is the longer staying business travellers who will benefit from the serviced apartments most.
“People are travelling more for business and spending extended periods of time away from home. Business travellers often want free WiFi and full kitchen and laundry facilities, and apartment properties are incredibly popular, as these essential services help cut down travelling costs,” he said.
Shayne and Erin Hohn, Managers of Best Western Islington Apartments, the only Best Western property in Townsville, said they are excited to join the hotel group on the back of its successful year opening 14 new quality hotels across Australia and New Zealand.
“We’re thrilled to be welcomed into the Best Western group and look forward to helping increase tourism to Townsville by giving travellers a great base to see the surrounding tropical islands and attractions,” Shayne said.
“Best Western matched our own passion for putting the magic back in travel… we promise our guests will get top quality service in comfortable accommodation and a friendly welcome each time they stay.”
