After a successful year adding quality hotels to the group, Best Western continues its momentum in 2014 announcing the four and a half (4.5) star Best Western Islington Apartments in Townsville, North Queensland as the latest addition to its Australasian affiliate of the World’s Biggest Hotel Family.
Located a 15 minute drive from Townsville Airport and a short stroll into Townsville’s CBD, Best Western Islington Apartments offer 30 stylishly appointed one, two and three bedroom self-contained apartments ideal for groups of travellers seeking short or long stays.
To escape the Townsville humidity, there is a 25 metre lap pool nestled in the centre of the modern apartment complex and air-conditioning in each apartment. Fitness and foodie fanatics are catered for, with the complex offering a gym, spa, sauna, and fully self-contained kitchen and BBQ area onsite with cafes and restaurants next to the property.
Shayne and Erin Hohn, managers of Best Western Islington Apartments said they are the only Best Western property in Townsville, and are excited to join the growing hotel group on the back of its successful year opening 14 new 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 the Townsville region,” Mr Hohn said.
After researching hotel brands to find the right fit for the serviced apartments, Mr Hohn 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.
“Best Western has very high standards, so after passing the group’s Quality Assurance assessments we knew we had signed with a brand that cared about quality product and service as much as we do,” he added.
Rob Anderson, Best Western Australasia Chief Executive welcomes Shayne and Erin’s quality property to the group, saying Best Western is on track to expand its portfolio of quality hotels, apartments and resorts across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji in 2014.
“Best Western Islington Apartments is great value for groups and business travellers looking for a fully self-contained accommodation option in Townsville,” Mr Anderson said.
“People are travelling more for business and spending extended periods of time away from home. Business travellers often want free wi-fi and full kitchen and laundry facilities, and apartment properties are incredibly popular, as these essential services help cut down travelling costs.”
Townsville offers many attractions and activities. Explore the beautiful Reef HQ Aquarium, take a ferry ride to Magnetic Island, climb Castle Hill, see the Billabong Wildlife Sanctuary or for lucky travellers, the Jupiter’s Townsville Casino is within walking distance from the CBD and the Palmer and Flinders Street restaurant precincts.
