The hospitality shown by Pat and Mike was excellent--very home-like--, and the accomodations were clean, attractive, and atmospheric (the house is a queensland style former plantation house, complete with outside veranda and wooden shutters.
The facility had a fascinating mix of guests going in and out when I was there-- A Sydney entertainer on vacation, two geologists, and two different sets of German tourists. They were all good conversationalists at breakfast, and very friendly people. The breakfast, by the way, were delicious.
Although it is a little out of town (which contributes to the peace and quiet) there is a very good restaurant one block away and a bus line passing in front of it.
If you are at a loss for what to do in Cairns, Pat and Mike give good advice and can book tours for you, which will pick you up at the door and leave you there as well.
Lilybank was recommended to me by a computer aquaintance, and I unreservedly recommend it to anyone else.
