I have just stayed in this hotel for 4 nights . Check in was fast and easy and my request for a room on the quiet side was no problem. The rooms have been refurbished. Rooms are clean and comfortable although quite simple. The external remains tired but does not really matter. The rooms are not serviced daily. There is... More

The hotel is being refurbished and some of the rooms are not owned by the hotel so room quality varies. Reception , pool ,BBQ and hotel is excellent and close to the city for shops and also close to the esplanade. Some rooms don't have access to the hotel's wifi. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Room 204 is... More

Although the hotel and Rentals Short Term both count on very friendly staff and is conveniently located, rooms facing Sheridan St can be really noisy (at least room #703 is very noisy - you can hear every single vehicle passing by the street day and night). We noticed heaps of ants walking all over the apartment - so don't even... More

We were happy with chosing this hotel for our stay in Cairns. Location is central, and there is underground parking available for hotel guests. Our room had everything we needed, and appeared recently refurbished. And the wifi works! There were a few little ants in our room, but I suppose that's unavoidable in the tropics. Please note however that reception... More

We spent 6 nights in this hotel on the 5th floor. The room was just like photos we saw online. Nicely renovated throughout. The bed was comfy. The curtains blocked out all the light so if you like to sleep in, you'll be happy. The only things I didn't like was every now and then you would get a smell... More

Initially booked 4 nights but ended up extending another 2 nights. We were impressed with the recently renovated rooms. It was spacious and everything was pretty much new. The shower room was lovely and renovated to a good standard. There was all the usual amenities in the room but they also supplied laundry liquid and washing up liquid. The location... More
