need to sharpen up

Indifferent staff, mould on roof, tiny bathroom, refurb desperately needed. This could be an excellent place with a bit of TLC. Better choices in cairns for the price.

helpful staff, clean and great value!

Great value. Very clean and the staff are extremely helpful. The location is about a 20 minute walk from Cairns city, however, Mercure offers a free shuttle bus into the city every hour between10am to 10pm so we caught that into the city and back to the hotel everyday. The walk to the city on the esplanade was lovely. Highly recommended and thank you again Riki for dropping us off and picking us up! =D
