I have these guys a touch up previously over their very poor attempt at a 5 star breakfast. Well I happily eat my words. They now have hot and cold full buffett plus al arcarte. When you buy a full breaky you get the buffett plus a choice from the menu. Played Pullman

This hotel is very near the ferry terminal and good for trips to the Reef, the Mossman Rain Forest and the Kuranda Railway. The best way is to take the Railway up. Gold Class is interesting. The sky rope way on the way down in a Diamond Class cabin with a glass bottom is unique. It is best to take... More

The Good. We stayed for three nights at the beginning of August 2014. We found the room clean, well appointed and spacious, the bed very comfy, the location right in the heart of town and the Esplande spot on and the view looking straight across the harbour, amazing. Bed was made and rooms were beautifully made up every day and... More

Though we liked the overall luxury settings and comfort of the room, we were a disappointed due to the presence of the ants that we discovered the second day, first in the bathroom, walking around the sink, then in the bedroom, walking on the walls and on the TV furniture. We reported to the reception. The lady was nice enough... More

A few nights in the Junior Suite were comfortable thanks to a good size room and big balcony. The room amenities are nice and the beds soft but are sagging in the centre. The location is convenient to the mall, restaurants and esplanade, there is a small 24hr store accross the street. The Concierge staff were the stars, always helpful... More

The very best in Cairns. Close to the pier to get to GBR, also to restaurants and if you want to stay late into the night it also has a casino. Rooms are recently done up with a spa bath tub in room. Ask for a harbour facing room. And if you have time, go out for a run over... More

Stayed here last week for one night for a work trip. Great stay- wish it had of been longer. Extremely helpful concierge, spacious and well equipped room with a beautiful view of the water, ideal location and great pool area. (Although the water temp was a little chilly) Will definitely be back.
