After my last review (20 th July) the General Manager wrote to ask that I try the hotel again and he promised to improve. So when I had another night stop over in Cairns we took him at his word and booked.
This time around the room was spotless and the bed linen the correct size. The view out to sea from the higher floors really is excellent and our room was very quiet. We had to leave very early the next morning so were unable to sample the breakfast. While there is nothing that can be done about the tiny bathrooms ours was clean this time round.
As on our previous visit the staff at the front desk were exceptionally helpful and polite; the Holiday Inn has a real asset in its staff.
At this price point, and assuming the improvements we saw on this visit are maintained, the hotel is good value and comfortable. It is in a good location and if you opt for an ocean view room the views are great.
The GM's promise of a much improved stay were fulfilled; thanks Matt.
