This hotel is beautifully located away from the busy tourist block and perfectly positioned across from all the wonderful childrens facilities the Cairns esplanade has to offer.

Sorry not a toddler friendly pool but across the road in the park there is an awesome kids playground with water play area. And further up the path is a great community pool area with suitable kids pool.
