Stayed one night here on my tropical holiday after I couldn't get a fourth night at the Mantra Esplanade at the discounted rate. Staff are friendly and welcoming. There's no $100 deposit or credit card imprint required on check-in, which was a bonus because I was at the end of my trip and low on funds. Not the nicest room, bur adequate. My TV didn't work and the air conditioner only worked with the door key in it. Since noone explained that, I spent a miserable two hours in a stuffy room with sunburn, until I did some investigating and worked it out. My room opened up to a large balcony, which gave my stay a taste of colonial, tropical North Qld. And you could smoke out there too. Free continental breakfast of cereals, toast and boiled eggs filled me up for my trip home to Sydney. So while I probably wouldn't to stay for more than a few nights, for the price, it was a great experience.
