It's hard to find a hotel with seperate bedroom from the kids and keeping it under $200. And theres a stunning ocean view !! we got it from Wotif and hotel website itself for $159/nt with breakfast. Breakfast coffee is nice with the little nespresso machine.
Our sons sleep on the double sofa bed at the living room. the bedroom is for the parents, also with TV. bathroom is inside the bedroom. Balcony is spacious along living room and bedroom. We lay on bed enjoying the view.
Balcony has a low railing and wouldn't recommend it for climbing toddler who wouldn't listen and has a serious addiction to thrill factor... :)
Luckily both of mine did listen because It scared them a little actually.
One suggestion for the hotel is to have sun lounge at the balcony so we can just enjoy the seabreeze.
There's a little kitchen with electric stove. sauce pan, no frying pan. No toaster. just kettle. no microwave. But has plates, bowl, cups, cutleries.
We bought sausages and steaks from the IGA supermarket (8-10min walk) and go to the playground accross the road where they have free Barbecue. kids can swing around while we prepare dinner.
During lunch (or even breakfast time) the playground has WATERFRONT cafe which has excellent menu and plenty of table with views.
The hotel has a small pool, which we didn't use as the Lagoon swimming pool is only 15min scenic walk.
Along the promenade has various activities which u could join for FREE!
zumba class, yoga etc.. check out http://www.cairnsesplanade.com/activities.html.
5-10min walk from the hotel (direction to the left, away from the Lagoon), there is beach volleyball, tennis court and rock climbing which there is a free instructor in one evening.
hotel has a laundry. $3 per machine. wash / dryer.
parking is plenty and free. behind the hotel there is a bus stop to the CBD if u don't want to walk.
I would recommend it for family on a budget whos looking for best value hotel in Cairns
