internet very slow
There was no pool, as it was currently being renovated.
Staff, very nice and helpful View and outlook from our 5th floor room Food Free bus into town and back
Pool not finished looking out the window of the cafe at a tin wall instead of a pool and view of the ocean. The funiture very tired especially in the Restaurant and Cafe.
The staff were extremely helpful in arranging tours and such
Our group of four enjoyed a very pleasant meal on our arrival and the breakfast next morning did not disappoint. The restaurant staff also were friendly and attentive. The hotel was overall good value for the money and we would not hesitate to stay there again
position and price
very hard mattresses and the cleanliness of the bathroom
Very comfortable bed.
Sleep disturbed by fight in next room on 4th August with screaming and yelling and banging of doors.
It was clean and fresh
No pool,air con played up a bit
Massive room, huge comfy bed, esplanade/sea view with balcony and all for a very good price in comparison to quality for money experienced in other hotels in Queensland during our 3 week visit.
Pool under renovation at the time of our visit but there was the option to use a sister hotel pool. Building work started at 7am therefore minimal noise. Quite a walk into cairns centre but the hotel did have a free hourly shuttle service
Very comfortable ,
Great place very clean and the staff helpful .great idea having a shuttle bus to take u to the city centre and pick you up
Not one thing
Location for us was good as we had a car.The view from the room was beautiful worth paying the extra for.One lady at reception was very helpful.The room was clean and adequate for our needs.
Could be a bit noisy Asian gent in the next room conducted his business in the hallway very loud on the phone could even hear the person on the other end obviously on speaker.Tea sugar etc not replenished each day.Breakfast poor and expensive
Great friendllness of all the staff, great to feel that nothing you asked for was any trouble for staff to advise or assist with.
Easy to find Staff very helpful Breakfast was huge and good but crowded Shuttle to downtown
No shuttle to airport Dated rooms Older carpet and bathrooms Single beds pushed together to make a King size bed - horrible for snuggling. Internet is a cumbersome code that is different for each device and times out in 5 hours unless you sign out.
Practical hotel not far from the airport it was perfect not to far not to close. By check in they give us tow rooms on different floors, 2 en 1, I asked if they could put us on the same floor and it was no problem, theys just wanted us to have a better vieuw from the second floor. At the end we got 2 rooms on the same floor and next to eche other, prefect! The beds we conformable the room was practical. Also they have a shuttle to Cairns center city every hour that was really a plus.
The bathroom was the only part a bit annoying. Shower/bath not very clean and in general a bit old.
Staff were excellent. Really accommodating, free shuttle was good.
Advertised as being very central, it wasn't. Shuttle made up to some extent. Rooms were dated and a bit tacky. Pool was out of service until November, yet not mentioned anywhere before arrival.
the ocean view the extremely helpful and friendly staff the room service and the food was amazing and a good price
the noise level of other patrons
Location and parking.
No breakfast inc.
The check in was disappointing - kept waiting for more than 15 minutes while staff chatted between themselves and served non checking in guests
Staff were very attentive.
The hotel was clean, the staff very friendly. It was an ideal base
We've stayed here before and the location is lovely. The staff are also very nice and try hard to help.
We booked the hotel because of it's location and pool and outdoor space. When we arrived the pool was being re built leaving very little outdoor space and a horrible dining area. We had not been made aware of this. Hopefully the pool is the first stage of a major update as the public areas of the hotel are looking weary, dirty and out of date. Could be a perfect location (as it once was) but a bit sad at the moment. Wish 'Booking' would email when things had changed about a hotel e.g. pool not available, and give you option to change your reservation.
Good location and a very nice breakfast.
Very poor form not to alert guests or potential guests that right under the bedrooms is the construction sight for a new pool. So, firstly no pool and secondly noise from the building work starts at 7am with hammering and drilling.A sign in the lift doesn't really excuse the management of not informing guests before they book this hotel.
We liked the fact this accomodation was on the waterfront but just a little bit removed from the main centre of town.
No chairs to sit on the balcony
