We stayed for 3 nights for a motorcycle rally, the pool was good , rooms kept clean and the location was good for a moderate priced motel, an easy walk to the esplanade (about 10-15mins) and on the main highway to head up to Port Douglas etc. A lot of the other motels along this stretch of road seemed very...

Average hotel, no lift, poor breakfast, small pool, not very clean rooms, friendly stuff tho. Nothing special. 10-15min walking distance to the downtown area and TARGET center. Nothing to eat around except Dominos pizza. U can find better deal.

Very friendly service, clean, tidy and good sized rooms. I stayed for 5 nights for business and found it very good for the less than $100 per night. It is only 10 minutes walk to the big shopping centre. Situated on the main northern arterial road.

Close to most things, staff ultra friendly and helpful, free wifi, rooms neat and tidy and serviced daily. For the price it's a bargain with pool and bar, perfect way to spend arvo relaxing with drinks beside pool. Will def be using again when back in Cairns.

It is a lovely inn close to everything. Will go there again. It is close to Muddies play ground for the kids although they have a lovely pool as well. The staff is very helpful and accommodating even with sick kids in the middle of the night.

This was a motel not a five star hotel. We paid about £20 per head per night and for that we had a very clean room, free internet, a balcony that got the sun all day, fridge, microwave and a pool to use. There's also a washing machine and dryer at $3 each which was very handy half way through...
