Stayed here for 2 nights in July. I was a bit apprehensive from the reviews on here, but I was pleasantly surprised.
The staff in reception were friendly, and helpful. A porter came to our car and whisked our bags away.
The lobby is quite smart looking, but once you leave to the outdoor atrium, the hotel looks a bit depressing.
The room was pleasant. The bathroom was very small, but had obviously been recently refurbished - modern and clean. The room was a decent size and although the furniture wasnt brand new, it was in good shape, and quite presentable.
We were fortunate to have a sea facing room, and didnt hear any noise from the adjoining building site. In any case, I believe this should be completed soon, and isnt really the hotel's fault.
The pool was very depressing, and nothing would tempt me in there! Reminded me of a cheap motel pool in the USA.
We paid a bit extra for breakfast. This price was quite reasonable, and we were quite impressed with the spread, other than the fruit, which was mostly from cans. We were intrigued that some people were being offered a freshly cooked breakfast (eg omelette) and we weren't! Although we were happy with the spread on offer, when we paid for breakfast there was no mention on the website about it being a limited form!
Overall, we had a comfortable stay - and would stay here again. The other hotels in Cairns didnt seem that much better, and all in all, it was a decent value for money. Nothing special though!
