This is the second time we have stayed here. This time the experience even better as we knew where places were in relation to the hotel. The rooms are lovely, well furnished, nice bathrooms and of course spotlessly clean. We love the internal garden, and the grounds of the hotel are colourful and beautifully kept. Good breakfast buffet in the... More

Overall, I had a wonderful experience here. It has a lovely lobby and phenomenal exteriors that include a wedding chapel and a pool. We had a stunning view from the balcony. Logistically, it is within walking distance to the nightlife, restaurants, shopping, the casino, and the boat excursions to the Great Barrier Reef. Breakfast was fresh and bountiful with a... More

I expected this hotel to be better than it was, the rooms are a good size with a comfortable bed and it was very clean, in a good situation close to the town and right on the water front.

Fantastic experience at this hotel - warm friendly people at reception to welcome you and very efficient. The position of the hotel is brilliant. Views are awesome especially from the executive lounge on the 9th floor. Their executive suites are well appointed and clean.

We were welcomed with friendly and courteous staff. Our room was ready early and was very impressive. Nothing was any trouble. It was walking distance to the cbd and other facilities. Easy parking.Pool was great and spa. Breakfast was very nice and fresh. We would definitely stay there again.
