We stayed in this hotel for two nights, the location was excellent and the room was large facing the ocean. The scenery in the morning or in the evening were breathtaking. It is one of the oldest hotels in Cairns and is relatively well kept; it is a basic three star and a stretch as a four star. The room was infested with little ants, especially around the bags of coffee and sugar. The hot breakfast was very basic but sufficient to give you half day of energy and I believe the selections are probably the same everyday. The pool was closed for their annual renovation and cleanup.
One thing I would like to mention is the buffet style food in the Night Market, it was so bad that I could not even finish half a dish, the food was cooked and re-cooked many times and some selections were just inedible; mainly on the Chinese food side. We had not tried other food such as Japanese, Vietnamese or Portuguese. I also tried the 40 min message for $15 which was very good depending whether you can find the right masseurs.
