Great start to our three week road trip from cairns to Sydney and one of the only luxurious nights we had! Good value for money if you book in advance like we did and the room was clean, good size and modern. Great location only 2 mins walk to main strip. Nice pool area, although free breakfast finishes too early!

This is a great little motel/hotel located in central Cairns. Once a diamond i suspect but now in its autumnal stage it is still clean and charming and the staff are friendly and helpful. 2 minutes walk and you are on the Esplanade and into the buzz of Cairns and 10 minutes from the harbour and the tour boats.

The amount of bucks you pay here I think it's worth, if you look around there is nothing significant better for less than 150 AUD, I paid 123 AUD and that including breakfast, location is terrific if you want more of a flash hotel then you can do the Rydges or the Double Three but that would be more like...

Stayed here for 2 nights , in non peak season so was quite cheap.Only 2 streets back from the main esplanade. Clean room ,comfortable bed,but shower leaked the entire time.Workers at reception either didn't care or didn't speak clear English. 2 nights came with 2 buffet breakfast which was a highlight.The hotel had great working air con.

Hotel caters to Chinese tour groups and many of staff do not speak English. Included breakfast was fine, but with no cook-to-order options (no English-speaking staff), but and did include Chinese breakfast options if you like noodles or congee. Evening Chinese restaurant was ok, but pricey. Room was clean, with a recently refreshed bath and a surprise Jacuzzi tub. Free... More

Air con was great with a ceiling fan as well, room comes with a little fridge and kettle and hair dryer.... More

The location is great for the price...just one block from the Esplanade with heaps of restaurants, swimming lagoon etc. The king size bed was very comfortable. Unfortunately the water pressure in the shower was terrible & the hot water running flat out on it's own was tepid at best. The included breakfast in our booking was pretty disappointing. You can't... More

Extremely disappointed expected something quite different from the rooms as advertised on their accommodation page, I definitely would not rate this as four star more like 3 maybe compared to Uk standards. Wifi, yes very lucky if you can connect full stop Beware the hairdryers on the wall they explode and trip in your hand whilst using them , asked... More

Personally I found the room tired and due for a revamp. The breakfast was average and the International Roast Coffee sachets for breakfast just didn't cut it for me for the price of the hotel. Staff were friendly.
