A great place to stay in the heart of Cairns close to eateries and the lagoon. Our room was comfortable and clean with everything we needed for our stay. The only downside is that the wifi didn't work in our room. Would definitely stay here again.

"I have stayed in 2 levels 5 and 7 (room 707) and both have great views and you would not be dissaponited"
"Go for rooms from level 4 up. A little more privacy."
"rooms 4 or 5 on each level had views not only of ocean but also the rear of building looks toward surrounding hills and the city."
"Request not on floor 2, go higher and look at privately owned Airbnb apartments as these are meticulously clean and far superior décor."
"best location, heart of city"
