If you are looking for the tropical hotel in the heart of Cairns this is it. Brilliant lagoon pool and relaxed helpful staff build the atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble. The buffet breakfast is amazing value and grab a table outside. If you can stay in the suites, that's the ticket. Great views of the inlet and the most comfortable bed. 3 blocks to the city centre but oh so quiet!!

Room Tip: the suites are worth the extra $

I stayed in September just before school holidays and was able to get a promo deal the hotel was offering. I tend to choose hotels for their rates over the reviews I read and then read the reviews. The rating though of 4+ star is definitely deserving.

I have stayed at other properties here as well although none compares to the Novotel.

On arrival which was well before check in time I asked the receptionist if she could let me know when the room is ready and I would then come back. Considering that at the Hilton I was made to wait till well after the room was ready I received a call about 20 minutes later to tell me I could pick up they key. She made my initial arrival seem very easy and had now set a bar the hotel needed to maintain.

Upon getting to my room I found it to be clean and fresh - there was no musty smell or mould.

The room had ample facility including a fridge which you can stock up with your own things. All that is missing, but there is room for, is a separate desk and work chair. These can come in handy as a separate place to sit down. Understanding that it is a resort and that work should be left out at the front it just adds to the touch.

The bathrooms are dated but they still have all that is needed for a stay.

Room service was great and the food at Mizuna was great as well - reasonably priced for a hotel offering. Although being about 100m away from the centre of the cafe/restaurant area you can always venture out if you feel like anything else.

Now the "piece de resistence" which was also my favourite part of the hotel - the lagoon styled pool. Immaculately clean and well presented in the centre of the grounds and literally at least half the rooms faced onto the pool area. There is also a swim up bar which is part of the pool area. Plenty of seating around the pool which didn't seem to be overused either.

As mentioned earlier, it was a sale rate which I booked, although I was treated as any paying guest would be which is how people should be treated regardless.

The hotel has earnt my loyalty to say that it is the one I would choose to come back to on my next visit to cairns.

Easy to find, reasonable rates (not overly cheap though having bfast included helped). Room looked tired & smelt musty/mouldy! Staff were helpful re: not enough towels or teacups in family room. Asked for memory foam pillow but they had run out! Only a short stay thankfully as 2 nights was plenty, would pay more next time to stay somewhere a bit more up to date. Pool was excellent.
