After reading the reviews on TA I finally decided to book a 5 night stay in a "Superior Room"
On arrival the room presented very well. Clean, tidy and everything where it was expected. To paraphrase and old expression; the rooms appear to be a couple of pieces of furniture short of being well furnished.
The daily servicing left a bit to be desired. The best I could describe it is as "superficial" and at times appeared to be a bit "slap dash". This did not improve during the stay. Interestingly the preparation and servicing for a change of booking appeared to be thorough.
The buffet breakfast was basic, nutritious and adequate. Cereals, eggs, juice, toast and an amazing array of condiments.
The reception staff were helpful and friendly at all times.
Minor faults and failings in the room were reported but at no time during my stay were they attended to.
The location is convenient to all parts of Cairns.
You do get what you pay for. Yes I would stay here again, in a superior room, but only for stays of 2 or 3 days. For longer periods I would look for a holiday appartment.
