We spent the weekend at this lovely Hotel overlooking the esplanade. A great location to restaurants, cafes, shopping or just meandering along the beautiful Cairns esplanade admiring the yachts. Bed was very comfortable, room clean and tidy. There is also parking available. The perfect location if you are visiting Cairns and want to be within walking distance of all the... More

Staff were very helpful when I phoned, suggesting the locals deal which proved to be excellent value for money. They also organized early access to our room so that we could drop off all of our belongings and get organized before heading out to the race track. They rang me to tell me that the room was ready at 10am.... More

Beautiful location, amazing hotel and very helpful lovely staff. A little bit noisy - but to be expected on the main drag of the city! Lovely views of water to make up for it. AMAZING food at restaurant and great buffet breakfast. A wonderful weekend had - thank you!

We stayed here for the weekend of my 40th birthday and management generously gave me birthday greetings and a bottle of sparkling. The room was clean and lovely...but the whole hotel is a little dated. The executive lounge didn't have the advertised Wi-Fi...this was disappointing...and then they charge for it in the room...it should have been complimentary when the executive... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. The rooms was nice, clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpfulf. The hotel is situated near many restaurants and right near the port, making it easy to go out to the great barrier reef and very close to Lagoon. Wifi is free only in the lobby.
