After a long flight from PNG with lots of delays, we arrived late at Cairns. Check in staff were fantastic. I have stayed at Holiday inns in Melbourne Tulamarine and Port Moresby PNG. They hadn't really impressed me all that much. Over priced, rooms a bit dated and service generally fairly poor. Cairns restored my faith in the name though. Elsie at check in was cheerful and very helpful, despite the late hour. She corrected some mistakes with our bookings that had seemed too hard everywhere else. For example despite having booked all of our accommodation months in advance and having copies of our paper work at the desk, they somehow had no rooms allocated when we arrived. Cairns was a breath of fresh air. Fixed up past double billing of accounts arranged a late check out the next day, nothing was too much trouble. The location is handy to nearby restaunts and cafe's. nice rooms, clean. Breakfast meal was a bit pricey for bacon and eggs though. In all a good stay, I would go back ther again.
