We had an 8 night stay here. The location couldn't be better, 5 minute walk to the Cairns Esplanade and a 5 or 10 minute walk to Coles/Woolies. The pool are is great, grassed area, a sandy bottom area for the kids, bbq area, so that was great. The rooms itself are terribly dated which was disappointing. The carpet was a disgrace, bathroom so small, shower over bath and a small vanity. We paid for a room overlooking the pool but you can't sit on the balcony as its too small, and there is no chairs or a table there anyway. We had a terrible smell in the fridge, told reception and they said they would get the guy to look at it. It seemed slightly better on our return but still a smell then a couple of days later, water leaked out of the fridge all over the carpet and saturating the cupboard. All our ice creams melted. The floor wasn't vacuumed in 5 days and after that I asked if it could be done and the bin wasn't emptied for 2 days which was overflowing on the first day. We had to ask for that to be emptied as well.
We didn't eat there, so can't comment on the food/resaurant. All the staff were friendly. One thing that was a bit annoying, the phone in the room seemed like an ordinary home/alarm clock phone so made several trips down to reception to tell them about the fridge etc. When checking out I over heard the receptionist telling some people who were just checking in, to dial 9 or 0 (whichever it was) if you needed anything. Would have been handly to know prior because our room was in a different block which involved lifts and walking along a couple of long corridors. The brick paving, especially around the lifts, need a good heavy duty clean. That was really bad. Would I stay there again, don't think so. Needs a good clean and a refurb. 10 minute drive to airport. Wifi was hit and miss
