Arrived late in the evening and feeling somewhat jaded after a two day train journey but our mood immediately picked up when realised what a convenient location we had for the next three days and the exceptionally warm, efficient and courteous reception we received.
We were fortunate to be upgraded to a suite which was one of the largest and most luxurious rooms we have ever stayed in during our many well travelled years. All the big and little extras were there including large plasma televisions in both our lounge and super-sized bedroom, magnificent views over the marina, L'Occitaine toileteries, etc.etc.
The location is also superb - just a one minute walk to the reef boat terminal, five to the CBD and some of Cairns' most popular dining spots are right in the complex over looking the harbour and we certainly didn't not experience any noise problems.
Our only regret is that we had to leave but considering that was for Bloomfield Lodge, it wasn't too bad :)
