    Probably the most economical pick in the prime waterfront area close to the docks. The accommodations are suits with kitchenettes. There is a smallish pool and a simple fitness room, better than nothing. The top feature of the hotel is its location.

    A lovely spacious apartment overlooking the Cairns Inlet and surrounding attractions. The kitchenette was well equipped. The bathroom is rather small for the size of the apartment, but had all the amenities that you need. The view from the balcony is priceless! Can definitely recommend.
