I Have stayed here a few times in the past 5 years since I left Cairns. It's really good the manager Peter will look after you if you have any concerns, very quite. No trouble, No Alcohol allowed anytime. The price I paid for a week has not gone up in 5 years time since I been coming here. As you may now very close to cairns central less than 100 meters to Coles supermarket where you can buy some food, especial if arrived late. The places is looked after and renovated, bather room clean and painted. It would been better if there additional TV during peak times, if you need to watch something else.
