Stayed here for two nights - as a base for a visit to the reef. The hotel is in a good position. Rooms were clean and a good size - but starting to look a little worn. Service was quite good (breakfast service a bit haphazard! - but breakfast was cooked fresh). No evening service - pity. Reception was very...

We had a lovely sized room with balcony and all the amenities required for a 3 night stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is perfectly situated opposite the beach and only a short walk from the centre of Cairns. It also has a lovely pool.

The hotel is centrally located. The reception staff were helpful and pleasant . You get what you pay for. Tables in the rooms were wonky. However the hotel was immaculately clean you had all that you needed. Breakfast was ok. I would go back and recommend this hotel.

We stayed three nights. The room was quite good sized and had a nice balcony (we could see the water if we leaned out--we didn't pay for a water view). It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. They provided lots of towels. The only thing is that the hotel is quite dated and it is clear some replacing...

Debating with myself whether I should give the hotel a three or four star rating. Decided on 4 because I experienced an extremely helpful staff. The hotel has nice big rooms whic makes a very good deal if you are traveling more than one. I am not sure how many are allowed in the room we had, however it could...
