Stayed here for 4 nights in mid February. Arrived before check-in, after long flight from UK, and my room was ready for me straight away which was a surprise. Room spotless, had a microwave and table and chairs both inside and on the balcony. Breakfast was good, although I only had the continental option, there were cooked breakfasts available for...

Really good location on the Esplanade. It is a nicely refurbished hotel. I had 2 double beds to myself with good bathroom. Pool was nice to dip into at the end of the day. Good value. Reception staff could be friendlier - a smile and hello as you come and go would be nice... and they did have a sign...

We got our room online as it was cheaper to book that way. Our room was very spacious with 3 three beds in it. 1 double 2 single beds. Each bed had rollers so it was easy for cleaning staff to move the beds for cleaning purposes. This room was very clean -- Spotless, in fact. There was a mini...

We stayed in this hotel for a week, and really enjoyed it. The location was good, the suite was clean and spacious and the hotel staff were all very helpful and friendly. Paying extra for an ocean view suite was worth it, for the view and extra space that this provided. The location is a few steps from the boardwalk...

Let me start by saying that a beautiful hotel room is not necessary in Cairns as I imagine you will be spending most of your time outside of the room. With that out of the way I will say that our room left a lot to be desired and I was reminded of budget hotels near Disneyland or even Vegas...

I spent two nights here in an ocean view suite after a multi-day dive trip. For the price, it is very spacious: bedroom, living room, and mini-bar area with large fridge, microwave, sink, and silverware, etc. I believe the living room includes a sofa bed. The bedroom was very large with a full-size closet. The bathroom was a bit worn:...

We loved this hotel. The price was very reasonably. Rooms are big and have balconies, so you can see the ocean, The staff is very friendly and helpful. Everything is clean, well kept. They have a nice pool. It is 15 minutes walk thru the beautiful park along the Esplanade and boardwalk at the water to the Barrier Reef cruises...

There is a continental breakfast available, however I...
