Great location

Check in/out super quick! We had a room on the 5th floor with view of sea. Furniture in room has seen better days but its functional. Bed was firm but comfortable. Great location minutes from kids playground ( Muddys) and metres from restaurants on the esplanade. Good value for money!

Good Place to Relax

we stayed here for four days then went further up the coast for another 8 days, enjoyed our first stay very much so decided to book in for another two days on our way home. it was a last minute booking. The stay was still good but room seemed to be a little older. The staff excellent, all very helpful. Breakfast good.

Can do location for holiday

I opted to do the eat out at cheap places so I did not experience the food. However for any queries about locations and assistance to get boarding passes printed the staff, Stuart and Charlie, were very helpful. I also used the pool which was nice. A handy location to the esplanade and all amenities.

Fantastic location for any age or family

As first time visitors to Cairns this hotel was the perfect choice. Easy 5 minute walk to RSL, shops, restaurants & night market. 10 minutes to casino and jetty area. Directly across road from boardwalk and water views. Recommend RSL for great cheap meals but best to book a table. Room was comfortable and spacious with 2 double beds and spacious bathroom with excellent hot shower. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Advise pre-paying for breakfast at reception $19 instead of $25. Good filling buffet breakfast the only down was they had just started renovations at Sea Level restaurant on the esplanade so were serving from Latitde room. Not quite the same atmosphere or views. Great pool but would have liked spa to have been heated during August. Too cold to use despite 27 degree days.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Book the Kuranda Train and Sky Rail and Hartley's Crocodile Farm Tour as the one day tour. Spending half a day at each is plenty. Not rushed and bus pickup from hotel was excellent. Really good enjoyable tour for short visit to Cairns.
