The hotel is on the corner of Spence and The Esplanade and walking distance to all the bars and restaurants you would ever need, as well as to Cairns Central and the train station. The staff were very welcoming and the one morning (out of 7 nights) our room wasn't serviced, they were quick to rectify it. We stayed in... More

We were originally placed on 11th floor but that was too much for my mother so they kindly gave us room on 5th floor. Then the guy on reception helped us with all our bags. The room was well equipped, beds very comfortable, shower, bathroom well stocked & clean. The staff were knowledgeable & easy to approach. I would stay... More

On the plus side, the staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel was centrally located and close to restaurants, and the pier, and was within easy walking distance of pretty much anywhere you want to go in Cairns. On the downside, it was a little pricey for the average room and the WiFi t was extremely slow. Normally I wouldn't... More

So 5 stars for location and value and 3 for room. Only annoyance were many signs for eg Do not overflow bath,do not leave bathroom door open when showering. Felt... More

We loved staying here, the rooms are big and you can't get a better location right on the esplanade. Really enjoyed our 2 nights here. Amazing view over the sea to the mountains and so easy to get to all amenities and restaurants.

We were three ladies up in Cairns for a school reunion at the end of July 2015. Found this hotel, to be clean and in a great central location, would stay here again. The man on the front desk didn't have much personality, only said what he had to say, no greeting, no conversation. Didn't try the restaurant but it... More

Easy check in, free parking and great size room. We were facing the casino which was a nice view. The room was big and comfortable. It was an easy walk to restaurants down the street and there is a large restaurant on site which looked quite popular. Parking was included which is an added bonus although outside in the open....

nice place for a night close to everything the staff we're lovely and there is a 200 character minimum on this review so I'll fill the rest up with stuff like the steak at Outback Jacks is ordinary - and the breakfast at Re-Vive was awesome !
