In Cairns for a family wedding, my husband and 24 yo daughter stayed the nights here. Very comfortable beds and room only let down by the bathroom. No exhaust fan, inadequate in-floor drainage which meant that the whole bathroom flooded every time someone showered and very slippery floor tiles. Otherwise a great experience, the staff are so friendly and helpful,...

Stayed in a three bedroom/two bathroom apartment across the road from the main block. The apartment had a large balcony. There was a small pool. The apartment was clean and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was okay but not well-supplied with pans or equipment. One of the pans had a handle that came off and was only grudgingly replaced....

We booked a 3 bedroom apartment, very clean, wonderful restaurant, secure complex with covered car parking. Staff were extremely helpful, would stay there again. The building is across from Cairns Base Hospital if that is a requirement for your stay.

The staff is quite friendly and the rooms are good, although our room had the typical smell of the tropics, which is not always agreeable. The feel of the total is a little old fashioned, but not too much. Facilities work well, including the wifi. For a limited number of cars there is in house parking available. The continental breakfast...

Comfortable, clean and good sized accommodation located within walking distance of downtown Cairns. Well equipped with all the facilities necessary for a comfortable stay. Some great restaurants located within 5-10 minute walk of the accommodation. Extra beach towels available for use on day trips to beach or reef.

Located at the quieter, less touristy end of Cairns yet still within walking distance of restaurants and the Esplanade. The decor was a little dated but everything was clean, spacious and functional. The tropical gardens were lovely. The pool was a bit cool in Winter but I imagine would be refreshing in the Summer. Staff were professional and friendly. The...
