Location and price convinced us to book this hotel a short 10 minute walk from Cairns Esplanade. Sub $200 rooms are hard to come by in Cairns so we were please to find a family room in this hotel for just $120. On arrival at 11am we were told out room wasn't yet ready so we should come back at 2pm. We did so and found that it still wasn't ready. Around another 45 minutes later we were given a room in the second floor. We then discovered that the building has no elevator and had to drag our 8 bags of luggage up 2 flights of stairs (no assistance available or offered).
The room was spacious and clean with a double bed, 2 singles, large flat screen tv, safe, microwave, fridge, and tea/coffee facilities. All looked to be either new or in good order with the exception of the fridge which was possibly recycled from the city dump and looked awful. The room had air con though this wasn't required during our stay. The bathroom was functional and basic and in the main clean, though there was a large collection of long hairs on the wall and shower curtain that was a little stomach churning.
Everything else was merely fine. We slept well on comfortable beds and there was no noise or other annoyances. The only other points to note are that the hotel official images show what great things can be achieved with a wide angle lens as everything was a great deal smaller than is suggested, and that great tropical fish tank in reception could do with a good clean as it isn't so inviting.
