Our experience was neutral, they mixed up our room keys, and had given me the room next to us, luckily it was my sisters room and not a randoms but the buffet breakfasts were lovely, great pools although the spa wasn't heated so didnt really go swimming, but we were there for a wedding and they were very accomodating

I was a bit astonished by the style of the Hotel which promised a lot and didn´t keep up with the rooms. The room size was ok but so dark and cold. The people just passed in front of the window which was not really nice. The food was a desaster. The house cleaning was most of the time not... More

The room was spacious and the bathroom had plenty of room for toiletries ( a rarity these days). Three pools and we enjoyed swimming in one. We requested extra towels and they arrived within 5 minutes which was impressive. Complex is owned by Goodearth Hotels and they need to upgrade the roads and some areas to keep up the standard.

Stayed here for 4 days. We were self catering as we were told would have facilities to make toasties etc.. But we didnt. The pool was beautiful. Friendly staff. Bus that was $15 for a weekly pass takes you from the hotel into the main town which was handy not having to pay taxi's all the time.

The showers are barely warm of a night time and when purchased a movie it wouldnt work - but charges the room for the hire fee. Toilet doesnt stop running and there is a code on the aircon fan so unable to change temp to suit weather conditions. Find that other guests who travel in groups are really rude and... More

A great place to stay if you have your own transport or happy to catch cabs as its a long walk from the city of Cairns. The gardens are beautiful. I did have a problem in the room with the down lights above the bed glowing after switched off. According to the night manager the roof cavity has lights turned... More

Very friendly helpful staff, excellent breakfast great outdoor areas and pool.Rooms clean and well presented. Very good value for money. Is 2.6 Kms from main town centre not an issue if you have a car and tour coaches pick up at front door Is being updated at the moment.
