The location was terrific and we didn't have any trouble finding a place to park the car. I quite liked the pool, but we were so busy exploring that we only got to swim...

This was the little bit of luxury we needed after 3 weeks travelling through Australia and New Zealand. Staff were very helpful. Breakfast was excellent. The pool was a bonus and the views from our balcony wonderful.

This hotel has a good location on the edge of Cairns centre with easy access to the Seafront and town.
