“A pleasure!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

A lovely motel style place surrounding a pool. Lots of tropical plants and a nice feel as you walk in. Standard rooms and suite rooms available. The suite has a fridge and a microwave. It's spacious and pin drop clean. Balinese style decor and meal in the attached restaurant. A long walk (1/2 hour) to the town centre. Wi-fi available. Downside was (for me) that none of the windows could be opened and not a comfy lounge chair to be seen.

Room Tip: Opt for a suite room as it has more space and the microwave is an advantage

This hotel is ideal stay in Cairns. It is very clean with good en-suite facilities and powerful shower. The Staff are very helpful with anything. Great place to stay!

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor and no bugs or anything as all rooms have a slider net to repel insect...

My wife and I stayed here from 3rd -9th June. We had not stayed here for at least 10 years, not a lot has changed, except of course, the place has been updated. Clean, quiet, comfortable, good continental breakfast, freindly and helpful staff.

This establishment was really nice. Rooms are large and clean. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The adjoining restaurant caters for breakfast and dinner. I had breakfast there and it was good.

We stayed at this hotel for five days in April of this year. We found the staff very helpful and we were given an upgrade which was really nice. The room was very spacious and clean. It was a short walk to the Esplanade and city center. We dined at the resturant a couple of times but found it to be very pricey and not a large selection.This hotel also had washers and dryers for reasonable prices. It also has a free shuttle to the airport which isn't very far away. We would defitinely use this hotel again if we were to travel to Cairns again.

Room Tip: We had second floor which was nice and quiet.

We stayed 5 days. Excellent location,nice walk along the Esplanade to the city centre. Friendly, helpful staff.
Only thing we didn't like was the step right in the middle of our room, even though we were on a ground floor room we still had to negotiate a big step. Chairs were very uncomfortable and no microwave or toaster just a fridge and a kettle and small coffee cups (Larger cups would of been good.) The room was spacious as was the bathroom. They gave us 5hrs free internet also which was nice.
Very nice place and well worth going again.

Room Tip: If you are not to good on steps make sure you get a room with no step in the middle of the room. Our...

It was clean and had everything you wanted. A lot of the hotel was closed during our stay as it was easter which I was not expecting. It was a basic hotel but the staff were friendly but after our last hotel it was a bit of a let down. Breakfasts were good. It would be great if you were a younger person with a family.
