We decided in the morning last minute to stay in Cairns overnight, so as we have eaten and been to the casino a few times before we decided to stay at the hotel as a treat.
My husband called and they offered him a good package including sparkling wine in the room, breakfast, a superior king room, and $10 casion chips. I have also stayed at the Shangri-La and Rydges Tradewinds in Cairns in the last 12 months.
I thought the room was beautiful, large, amazing bathroom with spa bath, and very nicely decorated. We didn't use the pool but it looked very nice, and the sunbeds looked large and comfortable. The gym looked pretty basic.
We both had room service, and although typical 5* hotel prices (never easy on the wallet) I really enjoyed my club sandwhich, my husband had the chicken and said it was average!
Even I thought the breakfast was nice, and our voucher covered everything on the a la carte menu I was not amazed, I much prefered the Shangri-La breakfast. I also was little dissapointed in the coffee machine a nice cappuccino would have been appreciated!
One thing I didn't like was waiting to check-out, there seemed to be no order in who was next and a few people snuck in front of me! the staff however on reception, and the breakfast waiter were fantastic.
Overall it was nice, but for the same money I would try to get a deal at a club room back at the Shangri-La.
