I stayed here for two nights, a couple nights apart. The hotel consists of a couple different towers. My first stay was in a "standard" room. This room is very dated, somewhat unclean and torn up, and is at best a two star hotel room. Definitely not what you typically find at an Accor hotel, and I cannot recommend staying here.
The second night I stayed in a different tower, and this room was more in line with what I'd expect, and I'd stay here again. It was spacious, had more contemporary furnishings, and was newer and cleaner.
The hotel is far from the action in Cairns. While they do run a shuttle, at times, it is overbooked which can delay your return. If you're in the mood for a bit of a walk, walking down the Esplanade to Cairns is quite nice.
