We enjoyed our final night in FNQ here. The view of Cairns Bay was delightful. The room was large. The complimentary bus service to the centre of the CBD was reliable and very helpful. Being a short distance from the centre meant it was a relatively quiet location. Breakfast was fine. It was good value for money.

Reasonably priced facility but needs to be updated.

Rooms are nice sized and bed is comfortable but bath is old and not so well maintained.

View of the harbor is unsurpassed.

Restaurant is kind of lame. Nothing special about breakfast and eggs are awful.

The staff is maybe the best I have ever experienced and I am well traveled.

Dickey is superb. Always willing to help in any matter. He is like having a butler or something. All staff have super personalities and should get an award of some kind.

With this staff and this location the management/owner’s could have a five star facility with a little capital investment.

This hotel is well priced spacious budget accommodation. Very centrally situated on the Cairns Esplanade with access to all the facilities, bars and restaurants. There is a nice pool to cool off as well. The staff are friendly, the bar and restaurant are good everything is relaxed.

All the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms had great views over the esplanade and the rooms were very spacious. They have an on site bar and restaurant. Great value! The only downside was - No Happy Hour!!

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms
