Clean, convenient and comfortable! Absolutely nothing to complain about. I was travelling with a friend, we had a queen bed each and views over Cairns. The staff were lovely and the room was much cleaner than our hotel in Port Douglas.

I'm quite sure we got upgraded, which was a fantastic surprise for my boyfriends birthday. Top floor 1 bedroom suite with an ocean view. Views were great, room clean and spacious, air con worked great. Little balcony to sit on. The hotel is only 6 floors and there didn't seem to be loads of people staying there. Situated on the...

This is a reasonable place to stay, in a good location and a short walk to the many restaurants and bars in Cairns. The room was large and had two double beds. There was a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The staff were ok, but not over friendly. My only criticisms were that I was...

From emails to check in and check out, the staff are fabulous to work with. Reservations were made easily and communication was stellar and quick. The standard ore authorization at check in of course but no other out of the ordinary expenses. Clean room and sheets/ towels. Nice size bathroom, shower with good temps and pressure. Pay for the upgrade...

The first room was very spacious with 3 beds so very nice for my son and I. The wi-fi signal in this room on the...

Pros: Clean spacious apartment room with a comfortable bed. WiFi worked well. Close to many restaurants and shopping. Cons: Desk service was unfriendly. Not at all flexible with 10 am check out time. We paid for their breakfast buffet, only to find that it had run out of many items so was a poor value. Better beaches are elsewhere. Is...

Absolutely ideal for a brief but enjoyable stay in Cairns. Central enough to walk to everything downtown and at the marinas for the reef boats. Far enough out to be quiet. Welcomed by a very friendly and helpful receptionist. Room was clean and large although bathroom was a little small especially given the space in the room. We had a...

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed it. The boardwalk is just across the street which means walking to the harbor, shops, and restaurants was so easy. You can tell it's a bit dated, and the doors offer no soundproofing. However, they included international plugs in the bathroom which is much appreciated. The breakfast was okay, for $15 AUD...
