During the recent AFL game we decided to stay here and my mate and myself thought that we would avail ourselves at the sports bar to make use of the big screen rather then go to the game. I did this a few years ago and had a great time. However, this time around the schooners were between $1 and... More

We live in Cairns and have visited the restaurant 3 times in the last two weeks, attracted by the $1 oysters. There are daily specials and there is a variety of steaks to suit all tastes. It is a pleasant experience

The accomodation is clean but very basic, breakfast is extra and not worth what you pay for. Restaurant food is a little overpriced and reasonable serving depending on order. Childrens games room is good for kids to keep them amused.

So often you make a decision to stay somewhere based on someone else's advice. Lesson learnt! I spent a night at the Balaclava Motel and think it will be the last.
