We spent four nights here in November and found it a great place to stay and ideally situated for all the bars, restaurants and shops (with a couple of decent, well-priced restaurants itself).
From the moment we checked in (and check-in is like at one of those fancy boutique hotels where it's at a small wooden table and not like at a chain at all), we were impressed with the place. Our standard room was a decent size and we had a balcony which overlooked the pool a couple of floors below and beyond that, the town and the sea front (which we could just about see). The bed was fabulously comfortable which was useful as there's plenty to fill the days in Cairns and you'll be exhausted come the evening.
Although we didn't use it, the shower doubled as a steam room and bath featured a jacuzzi. There was also rather an unusual sliding door arrangement between the bedroom and bathroom which enabled you to sit in the bath as though you were in the bedroom! So you could watch tv or talk to someone on the balcony, whilst having a bath! Not the sort of thing a Brit would do, I assure you.
Finally, from our room on the sixth floor, there was very little noise either from the street in the distance or from neighbouring rooms. All-in-all, a great place to stay if you're holidaying in Cairns
