Lovely location. We stayed in an ocean front room and could see the waves. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The pool is great,warm and protected and you can do laps in it. Nice breakfast,all essentials The only thing is that the actual room is very small. It may become very very small if you had to have doors to... More

We stayed for 5 nights and our spacious room, bed and toiletries were excellent. The rooms are well designed with balconies providing some privacy. More shelf or drawer space for clothes, such as bedside units would be welcome. The Hotel's position to the town and beach is also excellent and this is obviously reflected in the price. I feel though,... More

We booked at quite short notice and I did not do my research properly. While it was fantastic to be picked up from Cairns and the friendly check in when we got to our 'boutique' room we were a little surprised by its size ( although we should have clicked by now boutique means small). We got our bed replaced... More

If you want to be a stone's throw from the beach, walking distance to the shops and restaurants (Macrossan St), in a small intimate hotel - this is the place for you. It's expensive and does cater to the 50+ crowd because of the pricing. The hotel is great in that everything is close - the restaurant, breakfast buffet (overlooking... More

Top marks for location, complimentary bus transfer from Cairns airport and nice welcome from Elena at reception. Our beach facing room had a small balcony with a round table and 2 upright chairs- no loungers or comfortable seating and it was in need of a refurbishment. Our kitchenette was too small to be able to actually cook a meal -... More

The location for this accommodation was perfect for us. All the big chains look good but you would need to drive to go anywhere whereas we could walk everywhere from here.

The rooms are very nice and the whole place is color co-ordinated in blues and greens. The bath soaps and amenities are great. Wonderful bar, excellent mixed drinks, nice wine list and the food in room service and in the restaurant was great. Literally 1 minute walk to the enclosed beach and less than 5 minutes to down-town.

We had a good weekend exploring the town and surrounds. Rooms are clean, good size, works well. Location is convenient and within casual walking distance to everything on offer in town. Waking up to sunrise over the waters of the Barrier Reef are a great way to start the day.
