    The James Cook Hotel is long established and lives up to its great reputation. Central location means you have a short walk to the Golden Mile shopping precinct and numerous conference facilities, government and businesses. Helpful staff and hotel has recently been renovated

    Please define the available "laundry service." Is this a coin-operated on-site laundry or a service that picks up and delivers items to be laundered? Thank you.

    Thank you for your question. We offer a dry cleaning laundry service only, where your items are picked up and delivered, after being laundered. There are no coin-operated washing machines at the Hotel.
