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

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

We arrived in the morning straight after our flight and was able to get into our room right away. All staff throughout our stay we're friendly and welcoming. The rooms are not modern, but they are spacious and clean. It has beautiful gardens and pools, and good guest facilities. The shuttle bus into town is reasonably priced. We will stay... More

I stayed at this hotel as part of a tour group. There appeared to be many (5-6) tour groups using the hotel. It wasn't really a problem, although breakfast got a little busy on one day. The hotel bills itself as a resort, but I wouldn't call it that. The hotel rooms are very spread out, with lush gardens and... More

Stayed at the resort with my husband and 2 sons, we had a wonderful time. Our room was clean tidy and spacious, we did not feel cramped at all! Had breakfast each morning in the Homestead Restaurant, was delicious every time. Our first morning there was quite busy and there were quite a few rude customers dining at the same... More
