    Friendliness and helpfulness of the staff were appreciated; going the extra mile to help with the booking of a tour and a taxi to take me back to the airport. The location was close to all the facilities I needed in Cairns - despite the heat, I was able to walk to the bustling shopping, tourist, and restaurant areas with ease. Whilst I didn't need to use all the facilities the room had to offer, it came with everything anyone would need for a self-catering stay in Cairns.
