The Hotel was lovely and clean. The City is not too far from the airport, so if you prefer staying in the middle of the city or taking a stroll at the beach in the evening before entering your room, this place isn't what you would chose. Nonetheless, the place is lovely, no complains, the room was beautiful, the Breakfast... More

The hotel is very well located and access to the city is very easy by road. The room I stayed in was very spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. The bathroom was clean with a bath/shower combination which had the best water pressure and hot water I have experienced. There was plenty of complimentary toiletries... More

Thank you for your review. We are very proud of our restaurant. Hotel restaurants are often way over-priced and under-valued. Not ours. We offer the very best quality of products at very reasonable prices. So much so that we have a very steady, regular, local clientele. Thanks for sharing your comments we really enjoy such positive feed back. More

The Hotel on the internet appeared much better than ti actually was. The Hotel is dated but is close to the the airport, our room had no bar fridge and the room and bathroom smelt that someone had been smoking, Carpets need replacing and bathroom needs a new fit out. Car parking was ok and access to the hotel reasonable.... More

Arrived late into Cairns and feeling very tired, staff at the counter was very attentive and had everything ready for us. The room was very clean and bed was very comfortable. If you arrived in your car there is ample of parking space around the hotel compound. It is not very far from the airport.

Excellent food and prompt service. The service of all staff including reception and cleaners and hospitality workers was exceptional. Would def stay there again over other hotels that are old and over priced (such as the Holiday Inn).

We were only staying one night to be close to the airport for an early morning flight but were pleasantly surprised by the room. Very large suite. Comfortable. Quiet. 24 hour service. Would stay again

Upon arrival, was very warmly greeted, with genuine interest being shown in your own activities to date. A full description of the hotels amenities was given, which is backed by a good guest compendium in the room. Room was spacious, and while indicating some aging, was very well decorated and furnished. Bed was large and comfortable. Bathroom was equally large,... More
