We really enjoyed this place. We rented an apartment for four nights and it was just what we needed after travelling for five weeks in New Zealand ... a comfy, clean, very spacious, private "home" to unwind in. We had a one-bedroom apartment, with large living room, separate dining area, full kitchen, TV in bedroom and living room, balcony overlooking the sea, and washer/dryer in the unit. With a grocery store across the street, we were able to purchase food for meals and enjoyed four wonderful breakfasts on our balcony, along with being able to pack lunches for all our excursions, plus we caught up on our laundry. There are plenty of restaurants very close by for lovely dinners, but one night we brought home a pizza and watched a movie, a great thing to do after living out of a suitcase for over a month! This is a wonderful place if you are travelling with children or want a "home" environment while vacationing. The staff were wonderful and friendly and arranged tours to the reef for us, gave us maps for walking tours and took the time to have a little chat with us, which made us feel very welcomed to Cairns. If you want a luxury hotel, this is not it, but it offers something very nice in this tourist area. And an added tourist experience occurs if you sit out on the balcony just before dusk and watch the massive exodus of bats from the mountain caves ... quite a spectacular sight! We thought this hotel provided excellent travel value and a very pleasant travel experience.
