I regularly travel to Cairns and have stayed here now for over 5 years. The hotel is within a short cab ride of the airport, 500m to the restaurants and night markets of the esplanade, a ten minute walk to Cairns largest shopping center (Cairns Central) and the marina area where the boats to the reef launch.
The hotel it self has great views of the ocean, a gym, pool, bar and restaurant. Personally my only criticism is the quality of the food on premises, for this reason I do not eat here (check out my other reviews for a great breakfast and dinner option). Check in staff a very efficient, super friendly and always able to help, particularly if you are looking for activities in the area. I notice too all the major tourist operators do pick up from this hotel. The rooms have been refurbed in the last two years and the linen etc is off a good standard. My only criticism is that they have installed motion censor driven air conditioning which means in summer you always walk into a stifling hot room, if you are only going back to change it will never cool down in time, and if you arrive back in time to sleep the first two hours are uncomfortable. This time of year (May) though it is fine. I think it's price is always exceptional value for money.
