WE initially were going to stay 4 nights, but ended staying 8. We really loved this hotel. WE had a balcony to hang out on, and it is just blocks from the esplanade. The pool was very refreshing after a day of touring around. Easy driving distance to the Tablelands and to the Daintree Forest. Hotel was very comfortable and... More

We booked during promotion so the price is reasonable based on cleaning and big rooms, good ventilation / air conditioner, enought water for shower and sewage and convenient location. The hotel has inhouse restaurant but was closed always. We stayed one night then leave our luggages at the hotel as we will return. However the storage system is not safe... More

Thankfully this was only a short overnight stay! Our travel agent (Anzcro UK) truly messed this up by booking us into this place! The hotel needs a complete rebuild, the only acceptable thing about it is the convenient location to the restaurants on the beach... Avoid if possible!

My husband and I were looking for a place that we could unwind and relax - we checked out the King Suites rooms and we delighted by their description online - however when it came to actually receiving bath robes and slippers with our room we were sorely dissappointed - when we mentioned that there were dead insects and the...

The Plantation rooms come in a genuine style with the wooden shutters, 2 chairs & table a desk, 26" Flatscreen cable TV, DVD player, fridge and coffee tray and free wifi, if reception is strong enough to reach the room, mine was to weak and not usable. In the bathroom there is a 2 door closet with a built in... More

This hotel was booked by our tour operator and we were very pleased with the selection. The location was very close to the esplanade, lagoon and restaurants. There is a restaurant on premises but it's only open for breakfast. However, with all the choices nearby, this was not a big problem. The room was quiet and comfortable.

We got a rate of around $100 Cdn Through hotels.com and were really impressed with the property considering the rate. The rooms were clean, the staff were super friendly, breakfast was nice and the location was very convenient. We were staying here in between tours and the hotel stored our suitcases safely and for no cost as we came and... More

The rooms in this hotel are very tired. Although very clean the rooms could do with major renovations, especially the bathrooms. On the website it stated they had bathrobes and none were supplied even after asking for them. The inbuilt hairdryer didn't work and the supplied free one also didn't work. Breakfast was reasonable but never changes from day to... More

Stayed one night in Feb 2015 in a twin room. It was pretty clean, quiet and roomy. Has hairdryer too. The room is on the first floor, so outside the room, there are the outdoor chairs and tables to enjoy the balmy night, on the timber walkway/deck. It is close to the town, so easy walk to the restaurants. Receptionist... More
