Stayed a couple of nights at the hotel as it is close to Cazalys stadium. It's cheap. Dank and smells weird. Ripped and stained carpets. Air-con coughed out a heap of dust when we turned it on and rattled loudly. Sometimes it decided to blow out warm dust during the night , sometimes cold... whatever it felt like. The shower... More

Our room was clean and comfortable was a good size. The next morning staff were on deck and working, friendly... More

Clean, secure a bit dated but overall a good place to stay. Staff were nice and also has a good well lit secure car park. A bit far from the CBD but if you have a car that's no problem. For $79 a night i'd stay here again. 😄 .....................................................

Conviently located on the outskirts of Cairns. Stayed in the 4 bed kitchenette style room. Had all the necessary amenities, a/c, powerful shower, Foxtel, fridge, microwave etc, but needs a good clean, holes in bathroom wall bogged up with filler and left rough/ uneven, tv control and a/c controls falling to pieces. Receptionist not the most pleasant when confronted. Definitely... More

So, the reception hours on the front door don't mean anything. We arrived at 7:30PM and reception was closed, even though the sign says open til 9PM. No worries, the dirty after... More
