We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. The rooms were small but comfortable and clean. The continental breakfast was well presented and you could have as much as you liked.
The staff were excellent for their help and information. You had to book the shuttle service and operated during the hours that were advertised. If you hired a car there is plenty of room to park the car. It was a ten minute walk to the esplanade and probably 15 mins to the city. We are an older couple and had no problems doing this walk. Overall our stay was excellent.

Room Tip: Suggest asking for ground floor if you are elderly

Booked this hotel because it was reasonably priced & found it has several good points, including the fact that breakfast was included in the price, relatively handy to town,(including nearby car rentals). Staff were helpful re tours, rooms were comfortable, nice pool & relatively quiet. Not so good was that we were on the third floor, OK for us but some may find it a nuisance as no lift. Although advertising free shuttle to/from airport & we were picked up alright, for the return they have a notice that it now only applies at very limited hours. I think it was something like between 10am to 2.30pm. Not that many planes arrive during that time, particularly if International. We had to make other arrangements.

This hotel is quite far away from the esplanade as it is a 10 to 15 minute walk. The hotel staff are not friendly at all especially the older lady with glasses.

The hotel is very old, the air con does not work very well and our room was opposite the communal shower. Even though we had our own private shower, the communal shower was the noisiest place ever.

The room had ants and the bathroom was not clean, it had someone else's hair in the shower.

The breakfast (if you can call it a breakfast) is awful... Just toast and cornflakes. We ended up going out for breakfast.

All in all not a good stay and it was a good job I got it for 55% off or else I would not be happy at all.

Not worth the money or a glance. I would suggest a hostel than this hotel....

Please note: we had a superior room so I cannot imagine what a standard room would be like.

Was there for a short trip within' our holiday together with my sister and her husband to visit relatives in Cairns. Good for the money you pay. Included basic breakfast (although it stops very early for some reason), internet (although slow in the rooms - too far away from wireless modem?) and small pool.
We had the nicer rooms in the adjecent newer building and the rooms were nice, clean but basic. I was glad to opt for those rooms as the (standard) ones in the main building looked a bit run down (as did the whole building...).
Friendly but to the point staff and location a bit out of downtown (20 min walk), however perfect if you're travelling by car (parking space and next to main road).

Room Tip: Go for the other building

Pros: price, location (as long as you don't mind a 10-15 walk to the heart of Cairns) and friendly staff (gave excellent suggestions and booked our tours).

Cons: The shuttle service has VERY limited hours of operation so we took a taxi which cost about 20 dollars each way, limited breakfast options which included stale cereal and granola bars (toast with pbutter topping was nice as well as the juice), small rooms (we did not mind as we only slept in the hotel, we were out and about all day/night) and the bathrooms were not what I invisioned for a 4.5 star rated hotel as the shower had no divider so the entire bathroom floor gets flooded with water (sink and toilet area too).

If I were to go back on a budget, there is no doubt I would look in to staying at this hotel again but if I had extra money to spend on a hotel room, I would look in to other options.
