Stay here for a week. The place is a bit dated but a cheap place to stay. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit. Beds were to hard for me and the wife. It had full kitchen and A/C, it is close to an supermarket, a bottle-shop and a few eateries/cafes. But if you want to go to the CBD... More

Well, it's cheap. I found this place to be pretty basic, but it's got everything you need - including free WiFi and a little kitchenette - and is excellent value. There were a few quibbles for me - not all of the light globes worked and the little box of milk and jug of water that had been thoughtfully provided... More

Stayed 3 nights in early November; very comfortable. Great to have the well stocked kitchenette. It was just down the street from a small market where we got some breakfast items for the room, and several fast food venues, plus a nice restaurant, so something for everybody. The staff helped us with printing out a voucher for our reef tour... More

We stayed here while waiting to go on our Coral Princess Cruise of the Great Barrier Reef. We found it to be clean & comfortable. We found the staff to be most helpful & pleasant. It's in a good location, close to a bus stop, public phone, supermarket, liquor store and plenty of eat in or take away food outlets.... More

We are a family of four and stayed 9 nights here. We found this to be a comfortable place to stay in the 2 bedroom apartment. Like others have said perhaps a little compact in the living area but as it was really only a base (as most of our time was out exploring the area) it was not an... More

We were impressed with our motel style accommodation when we stayed recently. The kitchenette was a bonus. Neat & tidy with well kept gardens. Would recommend this to anyone looking for value for money.
