When ring in to book, don't expect the friendly reception of the previous owner. The current staff have zero customer service skills and barely speak English. They answer the phone in a very poor manner and I had to repeat everything I said at least three times, including spelling out the name of the business person I was booking in...

We picked this hotel because of the price - the cheapest we could find, as we fancied a break from hostel life. There are many good things about the hotel, the staff seemed friendly, the room was cleaned daily (sheets changed, new toiletries & tea/coffee supplied), the pool was nice (although a shame the slide was broken) and it was...

We were in a hurry to find a place for the night and low on funds, looking at the photos on Expedia, it looked reasonable so we booked online. We drove up in the dark and immediately wondered if we were at the right place. No one was in reception and after quite a wait, someone turned up and gave...

The motel is on the south side of Cairns so is some way out of the main Cairns area. The price is great for those on a budget. Shopping centre is not within walking distance although there is a MacDonalds which I would NOT recommend buying anything from. Rooms OK, although air conditioner very noisy and ceiling fan only had...

The motel is old and worn, but very clean. The staff was most friendly and helpful. They let us leave our car there while we went diving for 5 days for no charge. There is a good pool area that is located in the courtyard.

We stayed as a family of 6, and got 3 inter-connected rooms and a good price. The place is a bit away from the city - so unless you have your own car or transport arranged, it could be tough. There is a McDonalds and a grocery store within walking distance. The rooms are Ok - we had ours in...

The staff at this resort are incredibly friendly and helpful. The lady on reception allowed us to swim in the pool for a few hours before check-in as we arrived early and even moved our room up the priority list so it would be cleaned faster and we'd have somewhere to get out of the sun. Very comfortable beds with...

If you are looking for bells and whistles and a place within walking distance to the city then this is not the place for you.......but, if you are looking for a cheap, clean, quiet room then this is the place for you. Its a bit tired but we are only sleeping here. There is a pool, although the slide is...

We stayed here for 4 nights. It is far from the esplanade/CBD but if you are looking for a cheap stay option and have a car to get you around, this motel is not too bad. The rooms are spacious, and the beds are comfortable and clean. The air-conditioning is archaic and takes time to cool the rooms well enough,...
