“Nice but a slightly remote hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

I stayed at this hotel in mid June. Very helpful reception. Spacious and clean rooms. I was with my brother and we booked a double room, which had two comfortable beds. One was bigger than another though. Nice balcony/patio, where you can have breakfast or drink beer at night. Free wi-fi. We enjoyed occasional swimming in a pool in the backyard. Overall, great hotel.
However, it takes 15 minutes-walk to get to the downtown. You need even more time to get to the Cairns port. So if you booked a tour departing really early from the port, it is better to call a taxi in advance, as it was hard for us to find available taxis at street.

Room Tip: If you want to have a great breakfast, there is a good restaurant/eatery nearby called "Byblos...

Very friendly atmosphere. Nice room overlooking hotel swimming pool. Enjoyed our 2 night stay and found the room very comfortable and the staff could not have been more helpful.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

We stayed at this hotel in early january. We arrived at 10am from our flight to Cairns and the hotel already had a room ready for us. Very friendly staff and so helpful with information on the area and tours. Good location, only a few blocks to town. Nice and quiet on the backside of the hotel. The room was a good size with a fridge, nice little pool to get refreshed in and breakfast was excellent in the restaurant. I would definetely stay here again and the price was very good. We also really appreciated the free wi fi .

Room Tip: Get a room on the back because it fronts the main street into Cairns

Wonderful helpful staff, very spacious room with comfy bed, flat screen tv, microwave, fridge, air con and good sized ensuite with shower. Free wifi throughout hotel and rooms a real bonus especially as in Australia there is normally a limit or you have to pay. Restaurant on site that served breakfast and dinner. Laundry room, pool and computer with printer for use too (no charge!!)
Only negative is the distance from centre of town - about a 25-30 minute leisurely walk. No prob at all if you have a car. Bit the price was so good this is the compromise we made :) overall a really good hotel!
