This was the last place we stayed after a week in Cairns. I expected to go home rested and relaxed after a lovely holiday. After staying here I have got home exhausted and will take quite a few days to make up all the lost sleep. I am very disappointed that a place which was promoted quite highly ended up being a nightmare.
Our room was very small and unpleasant to be in other than to sleep. There was nowhere to sit other than on the bed. The Bathroom facilities were up a narrow passage and the hand basin was not big enough to wash your hands. There was nowhere to put toilet bags other than the floor so they got wet and putting on makeup was problematic.
The room was right by reception and was not at all sound proof so there was a stream of people entering reception talking and phones ringing. There was very little privacy as we had to keep the curtains closed otherwise people in reception would have been able to see in our room. The room was so not sound proof and we were kept awake most of our last night by partying young men staying in the room above us who did not appear to go to bed and were rowdy until morning. All sounds and movements from the room above and side appeared to be amplified and if they dropped a pin we would have been able to hear it. There appeared to be no restrictions on rowdy guests partying all night and morning keeping other patrons awake. We did get an apology in the morning but this was too late after a sleepless night.
All in all the worst room I have stayed in ever and I have travelled quite extensively. A backpacking hostel we stayed in Vietnam did not have the greatest facilities but at least it was quiet enough to get some sleep.
