The hotel has two blocks one on the Esplanade and the other on the Lake Street side where the main entrance is. The room was in the former as we asked for ocean views and was excellent value. Each rooms as its own balcony. However as noted in the review title there is a credit card charge of 1.5% which needs to be considered and $6 charge for 5 hours internet access which I found painfully slow at times. The hotel is far enough out of the centre of Cairns to felt pleasant as the centre is somewhat brash. There is an hourly free transit bus into the centre but it is a pleasant 25 minutes walk along the Esplanade.
