One of the nicest backpackers I’ve stayed in, lovely roof top bar was very relaxing, lovely atmosphere. The pool is beautiful and the food was very nice ecspecially the platter for $10 on Fridays. All staff were friendly. The King room was very clean with a great shower head
Great spot - beaut facilities, lovely restaurants, friendly staff.
The room was lovely
Cleaners outside my room at 7am on a Sunday
Friendly helpful staff. Comfy beds. Closeness to CBD and all attractions. Safe off road parking.
Little confusing to find the car park. Tight parking spaces but understand it’s better to fit customers in.
I booked a double room with ensuite and all the usual toiletries etc. When I checked in at 5.25pm (not late I am sure you will agree) my room had been let go and the girl tried to convince me that I had booked a room with 2 bunks. I have NEVER booked one of these in my life! (I am now in my 60s) Her option was a bed in an 8 room dorm. I was put into a 'cell' with bare conrete floor, not even a rug, no showercurtain, no toiletries and a 3" puddle of rain blocking my room door. I was handed a pile of sheets and a pillow case and towel but my back was so painful the receptionist had to carry them up to the third floor. She also found me a blanket. Not somewhere to recommend or ever revisit. If anybody from Rambutan reads this I think you owe me a refund as my 'cell' cost me the same as quoted for a proper double room which was $80. Your rating of 4. is too high I would give it 1.
Rambutan Resort is in the heart of Townsville, within a 10-minute walk of Museum of Tropical Queensland and Magnetic Island Ferry Terminal. Featured amenities include luggage storage, laundry facilities, and an elevator (lift). Free self parking is available onsite.
