Visited this place few days back... Spent 3 nights... It looks like a motel... Small room and small swimming pool... Around 10-15 mins walk to main area and sometimes it is difficult to walk if the weather is too hot and also at night and taxi will cost 8$... But rooms are comfortable and good service by staff... No restaurant... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here while in Cairns. It's essentially a case of getting what you pay for; basic room, clean but small. Air Con in our room didn't go below 21C which was frustrating but it was better than no air con at all. There is free Wifi which is a plus - not the quickest but fine... More

Hi Stuart, Thankyou for taking the time to write a response. Yes we pride ourselves on being budget friendly, but clean and comfortable. We find that with our air conditioners due the humidity in Cairns have to be programmed as they tent to not work effectively if lower than 21C. More

Our flight from Melbourne got us to Cairns mid-morning, but our room was not ready, and needed to be cleaned and checked, so would not be ready till two. When we eventually were shown to our room the air conditioning was not working (the... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. It was great! Staff were friendly and helpful. The room and very clean and comfortable. The only reason I didn't give it 5* is the wifi dropped in and out and the shower pressure wasn't the best. Other than that I'd be back.

Have stayed here a couple of times in 2009 & 2012. Rooms were neat and clean. Beds were comfortable to sleep on. Good location, only a block away from the beach and esplanade. A 10min walk took you into the Markets and Casino. Good place to set up as a base for daily outings to the Daintree, Kuranda or the... More

I stayed here twice in my Australia trip in August 2015. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The location is convenient. The food at the Restaurant was awesome. We had Italian and Thai and some other Asian food here.

Back in Cairns to visit my old stomping grounds for the first time in three years - and enjoyed staying at the 'Discovery Cairns'. The room was nice, the staff was very helpful, the service delivered what I asked for (and left me alone when asked), and the place is relatively-short walk from the Cairns CBD. I slept late every...
