Conviently located on the outskirts of Cairns. Stayed in the 4 bed kitchenette style room. Had all the necessary amenities, a/c, powerful shower, Foxtel, fridge, microwave etc, but needs a good clean, holes in bathroom wall bogged up with filler and left rough/ uneven, tv control and a/c controls falling to pieces. Receptionist not the most pleasant when confronted. Definitely... More

Firstly, the staff here are very friendly, and will help you wherever you need it, but there hands are tied when it comes to the actual property itself. So, the reception hours on the front door don't mean anything. We arrived at 7:30PM and reception was closed, even though the sign says open til 9PM. No worries, the dirty after... More

Was pregnant at the time wanted a night away with my husband. Thought 150 a night thats pretty decent and the photos looked great. On arrival I have never been so disgusted. There was pubic hair all through the shower. It was dark, musty and being 30 weeks I was no way in hell sleeping on the bed. Picked up... More

This isn't a 4 star accommodation, but our room had everything we required. It was clean and spacious. Our room was on the first floor and although it was school holiday time and I saw lots of children, once inside the room we didn't hear them.

Room was dated but clean and bed comfortable but you can't get 4 or 5 star at these prices. Very happy with the accommodation and would recommend it. The restaurant was clean but we were late and the staff lackluster. We ordered the fish & chips which said mackerel but definitely was not mackerel and had no flavour and the... More

I booked this inn/motel for one night before my diving trip. The room was very simple. The curtains were falling apart and there was no control switch for the ceiling fan. At least I could not find it. I had to switch off everything in the room to shut off the fan. The motel is on the south end of... More

Firstly our room stinks and the carpet is completely thread bare. Location is ok about 5km from the city. Curtains don't meet when drawn and the couch is so uncomfortable that our kids don't want to sit on it. Very creative photography and description, the room is certainly far from luxury. I would expect more for $190 per night!

A family of 4, we were given 2 towels in our room. No teaspoons to make a coffee. Teatowel provided to dry our cups but no washing up liquid to wash our cups for next hot drink! The swim pool was in desperate need of a clean, mould on the sides and botton of pool with debris. One blanket on... More

As this was a family trip we had 2 rooms. Unfortunately they were 7 rooms apart. There is no lift so getting baggage to the second floor can be a bit of a battle. The outer doors are all security locked, so trying to open doors with the luggage and get it all inside while trying to keep the door... More
