This hotel boasts a 4 star rating but is barely a 2 star hotel. No wifi in rooms, only wifi available is at reception where you have to pay for a connection. Although they advertise in house movies as part of their services, connection wasn't available and hasn't been for 3 months or more. Rooms were reasonably clean but in... More

This hotel was clean enough, but quite run-of-the-mill. The most disappointing part was that the only wifi available was in the hotel lobby or guest lounge - and you had to pay for it. They were as expensive as other, more modern, hotels. They were far away from any retail establishments - it was in the center of a neighborhood.... More

Staff are friendly and if arranged pick you up from the airport then at sometime in the morning will drop you back. Not necessarily when you asked for it so leave a bit of extra time. Rooms are comfortable but bathroom could be a bit cleaner. Breakfast ok.

Clean and indeed a bit of a Colonial style. Good breakfast reasonably dinner. Most important, close to the botanical garden. A good place to start from if you want to look around Cairns instead of in Cairns.

This is the third time I have stayed here and I was disappointed as I have loved this place. It needs a thoroughly good clean! However the furnishings in the rooms have not changed in 13 years. New carpets and a lick of paint would not go amiss. New bathroom suites would be appreciated and would surely save on water... More

We stayed for 4 nights just recently, taking advantage of a very good deal. We were located at the rear of the complex overlooking the tennis courts and could not believe how quiet it was. Ocassionally the staff trundled by in their buggies, but overall, having breakfast or a quiet drink on the balcony was very relaxing. The room had... More

The restaurant was pricey and the meals were rather small. We were informed upon arrival that our room was... More

I liked the tropical gardens and the pools. It is spread over a big area. Staff at reception were great. We had lunch and dinner at the poolside cafe and both times the meals were really nice. The guy who served us also made our drinks at the bar was very sociable and made us feel welcome and he was... More
