Look, this has got a rating of two for two reasons, a warm welcome and a clean room. It stops there! The hotel is located on the Esplanade in Cairns. It is slightly set back from the road but in view of the sea if you have a front facing room. On arrival the foyer is functional without being particularly welcoming. We had asked for rooms on the same floor but ended up with rooms above each other. On entering the room the first thing that was apparent was that it was old and in need of some significant refurbishment. The bathroom was dated and enamel was peeled off the floor of the bath. The door needed a coat of varnish and there was a pervasive smell of urine. The room had a double and single bed in it and again was in need of some significant decoration. The windows led out onto a balcony with views of the hotel opposite and the sea. The balcony fence however was very low and would be a danger to young children. We decided not to eat in the restaurant, which was empty when we left and when we returned. Luckily we were only staying one night, if we had been staying longer then we would have looked for somewhere else. Not a good experience, and definitely not recommended. There is wifi in the foyer, but it does not reach the rooms on the higher floors.
