We stayed at the civic guest house on our trip form Cairns to Airlie Beach. The place does not have any special atmosphere and the rooms feel a little bit like prison cells (mainly due to the way they are closed). However, the facilities were clean and there were many young people staying there. Wi-Fi is only available near the reception. There is a public parking spot nearby. However, we did not have a good feeling leaving our car there and decided to opt for a payed parking spot in near sight.
