Upon arriving on Sunday we were greeted at reception by a man with exceptional customer service skills. He was polite and extremely helpful. Room was very clean and tidy, showed a little wear and tear over the years but we weren't expecting 5 stars and extreme luxury. Lovely room and very comfortable beds with a great view of the pool...

Spent the ANZAC Day weekend here and it was close to evrything that we needed. Highly recommended. The romance package was fantastic. The bottle of wine on arrival was a real treat as were the two free drinks.

We were very disappointed with the room. The carpet was very dirty & we were expecting to have full ocean views. A staff member was very rude when I called to see if we could organise a early check in. I have stayed at your hotel several times and have never experienced this service before or had a dirty room.... More

Hotel has water views and not far from the Reef terminal. Helpful reception staff will lend out beach/pool towels for free, organise airport transfers for reasonable fee. Inhouse restaurant meals are excellent, although menu not extensive. Lovely swimming pool. I had a large room with two queen size beds and room to move around. Balcony over pool and water views....

The hotel is located on the Esplanade which is very conveniently located close to restaurants, a Night Market where you can get a foot massage for $15AUS, the wharf where you can catch one of those cruises out to the Great Barrier Reef for snorkeling. If you ask for an Ocean front room (not water front room where you see... More

I like staying here because of its great location overlooking the Coral Sea and down the esplanade towards the city. That is if you pay for an ocean front room. If you want to see the ocean don't be fooled by the "water" view - that is looking over the lovely resort style pool. The beds are comfortable, with fresh,... More
