Stayed 5 Nights at Novotel and 6 Nights at Pullman Reef to make Cairns visit more interesting. Novotel is a good family hotel with friendly staff, the large tropical lagoon style pool with a white sandy beach at one end, and bar with covered area in the middle was great. However, there was NO outdoor Spa which I missed.
The rooms were adequate, small bathroom with bath/shower, free coded Key safe, and pool towels provided. The rooms had individual A/C units which required to be turned on, the corridors were not A/C apart from the foyer, Dining Rm etc. This would save on power, but until the room cooled down, I would be sweating profusely and found it uncomfortable.
The buffet breakfast was very good and busy at times with lovely decore and setting beside the pool. The location was also good with easy walking distance to the Esplanade area and most of Cairns Central. In-house Tour bookings were very helpful and convienient as well, also they had free Internet stations.
Overall very good value, clean and family friendly.
