We love staying here for our Cairns visits. Is very roomy and comfortable, great views and the best location for any Cairns accommodation. The food court is just down below if you want an inexpensive meal, or plenty of great restaurants within walking distance. We love the easy parking and access to your room, just up the ramp and you...

Great position, close to lagoon and other facilities, including supermarket,restaurants,shops in general, and the marina for reef trips. The boardwalk along the esplanade is great for early morning walks before it gets too hot. Even though busy area, noise wasn't a problem . Only downside is parking may not always be available.

Room was very nice. Really liked the spa bath. BBQ's were an excellent idea. Was situated close to all amenities and the city. Close to Woolworths and Cairns Central. Parking was included. Nice view of esplanade and sea. Very quiet.

The room is quite clean and tidy with all necessary stuff including a refrigerator, a microwave, a kettle, dishes and everything. The hotel is perfectly located near the harbor and many lovely restaurants and travel agencies. There's also a pool in the hotel.

Wonderful location! Situated central to everything Cairns. You can walk everywhere if need be or just relax looking at wonderful ocean views. No noise even though markets downstairs and reception staff very helpful when we arrived early, allowed us to check in ahead of time. Would stay again when visiting Cairns.

It was a well appointed appartment. Close to all the amenities shops and restaurants. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. However the appartment was damp with most of the ceiling covered in mold. We would have scored this a lot higher had it not been for the damp problem.
