I stayed here overnight in late June. Initially put in a low floor room over the bins and pool, asked to go up to a few floors for a better view and the staff member at the desk organised it with a smile, very accomodating. The room had two balconeys, great view, kitchenette, lounge, good TV, all you need for... More

We were a little disappointed about that hotel. It needs refurbishment and maybe some people with cleaning skills. The shower is more a spray than a shower, the extra bed was different from the pictures shown on the web (sofa bed with metal springs almost coming through the cover) and the overall cleanliness was not good. Someone should start cleaning... More

Stayed for a couple of days and place was clean and service great. Parking is good and location is convenient. Just a short work up the road and you are in the heart of food and market. A bit noisy but if you so tired you cannot hear it. A bit pricey so I would look around first before you... More

When I first arrived and seen the exterior I was slightly concerned, but when I got up to the room all my worries disappeared. The room was spotless clean and had everything you needed. Towels, toiletries, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. There was a small kitchenette with a microwave, fridge, kettle and sink. There was no noise which was... More

This hotel is well located being on the esplanade, opposite the playground : Muddies, beautiful esplanade walking and green space, within easy walking distance to the esplanade restaurants, and only a longer walk or 5 min drive to Cairns Central Shopping Centre. Staff were very efficient and friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. We stayed in... More

We used this hotel as an overnight stop on way to Cairns airport. Very spacious room and comfortable beds, a short walk from centre, quiet neighbourhood. Very good values for money and ease of booking

Receptionist really helpful with storing our bags as we were early. Room was like an apartment with little kitchenette and dining area etc. Very clean, comfortable and quiet. Good views across the sea. Only 5 mins walk along the prom to the main area for bars/restaurants etc. So nice, we stayed there twice! They were only too happy to store... More

We chose this hotel for it's location and price. It is a comfortable walking distance to the start of the boardwalk and the price was reasonable. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. There is free parking at the hotel.
