Stayed in one of the Birdwings with my family for 5 nights late December 2017. The cabin is clean but everything is very basic, space is cramp inside & with only 1 toilet to share. There are 3 split aircon units in the cabin (1 upstairs & 1 in each of the 2 rooms) However, all three compressor units are mounted right outside the main bedroom window at the back of the cabin which was noisy & irritating especially at night. The "FREE WIFI" ticked on their website is misleading. It is not really free. All you're allow for is 150 mb per day which I think was a bit of a joke consider what we paid for for the nightly tariff during the peak holiday period. If you want more data you have to pay for it but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The signal is really poor, it keeps dropping out & you keep having to login again & again & again which was very frustrating.
The ground and facility is well kept & clean. The pool is very tiny & doesn't look inviting so my family didn't use at all. The Hotel location is about 15 km or 25 minutes drive from Cairns City which is a bit inconvenient for us especially if you're thinking of doing lots of reefs & island tours with your family. Otherwise, it's a quiet & relaxing spot.
