Helpful staff. Play pool and lap pool. Next to a small shopping centre. Generally great value for money.
Far from the beach but the hotel provides a $5 bus service which runs regularly.
Don't stay here
Truth be told, there wasn't much to like at this hotel. The rooms were clean, but otherwise the service was lacking.
The location is awful. It is nowhere near where tourists want to be in Cairns. They do offer shuttles to the city on an infrequent schedule and for a high cost given the service. Also no shuttle to the airport, so tack on taxi costs to and from. The staff was pretty unhelpful with our needs: couldn't check in early, didn't have a corkscrew we could borrow, recommended locations in the city by googling them while we were talking. We were on our honeymoon and they gave us two twin beds. They resolved the problem by...pushing the beds together. Just the comfort you want on a honeymoon. The breakfast is also a big rip-off: high price for low value (and that's not a discount with the coupon they give you when you stay there--it's not like anyone but hotel guests is eating breakfast at a hotel). We had it once then ate elsewhere. Stay somewhere closer to Cairns proper; this place is not worth the lower price and actually ended up being more expensive than alternatives when you count transport.
Good for the money
Beautiful pools, nice balcony, great staff. Laundry facilities were close and tidy. Well worth the price. Quiet at night.
My shower door wouldn't close and had mildew. Very small shower with stationary shower head...made for taller people. Wi-Fi only worked if close to lobby. They have a spa tub but it was cold. Very small tvs, no microwaves. A bit noisy during the day (traffic).
LOVED the pool!!!
Most uncomfortable beds, when we let the staff know, they were kind enough to bring another mattress, unfortunately, it was just as bad, I didn't have the heart to complain anymore, as the staff was friendly. The rooms need updating.
The staff was fantastic. Helped a lot for tours suggestion and bookings
We got this booking for 3 nights at $59. This was excellent value for what we got as there was an excellent pool & the room was great.
Out of main town. Outside seems a little tired.
view and pool
Clean room, cheap
Unfriendly staff, paper thin walls, worn out building, breakfast served till 9.30 only, very far away from city

The cigerette smoke drifting up onto our balcony, had to go back inside and close the door to the balcony.
