I was in Australia for a few months and stayed in Cairns as a little side trip for vacation.
Location of the hotel is right on the water nestled between the bay and the marina. Tons of restaurants within a 1-minute walk. And the Esplanade is just a few moments away. The hotel is right next to the main terminal where all of the barrier reef day trips leave from. The hotel also includes a large shopping mall where just about anything can be purchased. It really is a great location.
The staff is very friendly and attentive. I ate at the breakfast buffet twice during my visit. Lots and lots of food options.
