We stayed at the CQ for 4 nights and was our first trip to australia and it was an enjoyable stay.
When we arrived we were met by David on reception who was really welcoming and helpful showing that nothing was too much trouble and was happy to point out local amenities to locations and also call tour operators for us which was very beneficial as we felt a little list when we arrived.
Location is about a 20 minute walk to town via the esplanade which leads you to the town centre and the lagoon.
David suggested a pub a block away to eat as was cheap because we are travelling called the cock and bull and it did not disappoint - the portions were gigantic and we had a kangaroo and croc combo so was great.
There is a supermarket 5 minutes away along with some take aways so was perfect for us as australia is much more expensive compared to the uk.
From the airport it is 5 minutes in a cab and costs about £13.
Rooms are big and have a tv on the wall with lots of channels, there is an iron and kettle etc and the bed is huge.
A big thanks to David again who made our stay enjoyable.
