Perfect 5 star hotel in an otherwise disappointing locale. I stayed 2 nights, before and after my liveaboard dive trip out of Cairns. So glad I did! I got just the pampering I needed. Terrific staff! Very helpful and always cheerful. I got my room upgraded both times. First, I got an executive level room which got me breakfast and WiFi access (but only in the executive suite). The second visit, I was upgraded to a spa room. Puurfect. For once, I could use the tub AND watch TV at the same time since there was a glass wall between the shower/tub area and the bedroom. Never fear, tho, you can lower the shade for privacy.
My big complaint is lack of adequate WiFi in Australia in general and in one's hotel room, specifically. Whay can't I get WiFi in a 4 -5 star hotel room, gratis? I was traveling on business as well as pleasure, and what a pain to check emails and communicate with colleagues from the lobby!
Lovely, quiet rooms.
Oh, one problem, the area from the elevator to your room is open to the weather. It had rained a bit, and I slipped right in front of my door! Please rough up the tile floor or replace it with non-slip surfaces. I would have been really upset if I'd missed diving because of a serious fall.
