Great customer service

We made a last minute booking based on other reviews and felt so pleased to have found this hotel. Everything we had looked for, being long term travelers, was available in the nicely appointed room and lobby. Refrigerator was stocked with milk and ice water, beside the coffee/tea service. The 2 hr of free wifi seems to be generous for the Cairns area, more time available for purchase. The town has free wifi available in most places along the Esplanade. We used the hotel's laundry room and received a breakfast voucher (basic beverages, yogurt, fruit, cereals and bread) when we returned following an overnight trip to the reef.

Home away from home!

Great check in- fast and efficient. Quick lift to room / floor. No problems leaving car or luggage for a week. A really nice self serve breakfast for almost nothing!! Nice rooms, some with a small balcony. Good amenities, clean and bright. Only $3 to do the laundry. Comfortable King size bed, with good quality linen. Honestly, there is no fault to be found. Helpful friendly staff. Large free carparking at rear of hotel. Quiet location, with no noise heard from other guests. Thoroughly recommend to anyone- and oh, a great room rate to boot!

Quiet location - close to everything

We arrived earlier than the normal book-in time and were pleasantly surprised when we could get into our room immediately. Staff at the hotel were very pleasant and helpful. The king size bed was extremely comfortable. There was a jug in the room which you could fill from the filtered water cooler near reception. Bathroom was a good size, but the only issue was with the shower head which was attached to the wall at about 5 foot 6 inches and then it dropped an inch or 2 lower thus if you are more than 5' 4" you can't stand under the shower to wash your hair. They need to install the shower heads that are on an arm which can be lifted up higher than the point on the wall where they are fixed. Fresh milk in the fridge for making tea and coffee and we borrowed a toaster, plates and bowls so we could make our own breakfast prior to our early departure for the airport. Although we had a car, we noticed that there is an airport shuttle bus even for the very early flights. A short walk into the main CBD and easy access to everything.

If you like snorkelling, do a trip out to the Great Barrier Reef. It's spectacular.

Nothing special

Our room was absolutely average - big enough for the king size bed with enough space to walk either side of it, a desk/luggage space/table along one wall, a TV, an air-conditioner (not reverse cycle, so no heating - but it is Cairns), a small refrigerator with a small milk carton available from reception and a bland bathroom. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing special either - and for the money there is a lot to choose from in the same price range. No room service, no porter, no 24 hour reception and only a basic uncooked breakfast available for an extra charge in a "breakfast room". These days it's so hard to see any difference between a 3 or 4 star hotel - this place could have been either.

EXCELLENT BUDGET ACCOMMODATION

Although on the outskirts of the CBD it was still walking distance to restaurants and the city centre(about 2k one way), we were upgraded to a one bedroom apartment on our request and found the rooms comfortable, clean and all well appointed. The staff were friendly and approachable, nothing was a problem to them.

Be comfortable at a moderate price

Not at all slick and pretentious. Very good value for money. Everything worked well. Staff were efficient and went far out of their way to be helpful.
