“Reasonable Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

The staff were very friendly and helpful and all the information they offered was helpful (including good local restaurants).

The location of the this property is ok. It's a good 15-20 walk to the popular parts of Cairns nightlife (Esplanade, Casino, Night Markets). The only real issue is the road noise as the location is on a busy highway. If you're a heavy sleeper this wont bother you.

the rooms were okay - although the bathrooms are in need of some serious maintenance.

Overall - it is a comfortable stay - but you could get better closer to the city centre.

Room Tip: All tile floors - so level 3 rooms are quieter. Lower level rooms you can furniture being moved upst...

This place is clean and friendly. Staff were helpful and all rooms include a balcony. I pre booked it and the rate was only $75 per night for a double room for 2 nights. (This might go up a bit in the very high season). The It's not too far out of the action of Cairns Esplanade. It's an easy 15 minute walk. I recommend it!

Hello Karen,

We thank you for taking your time with your feedback.

Rates will rise slightly through peak season, but we will always do our best to stay the best value hotel in cairns. $75-$80 for low season, and will keep it around $90-$95 for peak season.

Appreciate your feedback.

Chris.

We stayed for 3 nights for a motorcycle rally, the pool was good , rooms kept clean and the location was good for a moderate priced motel, an easy walk to the esplanade (about 10-15mins)
and on the main highway to head up to Port Douglas etc.
A lot of the other motels along this stretch of road seemed very old and tired from the outside

Average hotel, no lift, poor breakfast, small pool, not very clean rooms, friendly stuff tho. Nothing special. 10-15min walking distance to the downtown area and TARGET center. Nothing to eat around except Dominos pizza. U can find better deal.

Room Tip: Nosiy from the street, better from the pool site

Very friendly service, clean, tidy and good sized rooms. I stayed for 5 nights for business and found it very good for the less than $100 per night. It is only 10 minutes walk to the big shopping centre. Situated on the main northern arterial road.

Close to most things, staff ultra friendly and helpful, free wifi, rooms neat and tidy and serviced daily.

For the price it's a bargain with pool and bar, perfect way to spend arvo relaxing with drinks beside pool.

Will def be using again when back in Cairns.

It is a lovely inn close to everything. Will go there again. It is close to Muddies play ground for the kids although they have a lovely pool as well. The staff is very helpful and accommodating even with sick kids in the middle of the night.
