Its true... it doesn't look like the oasis in their website, but still a good hotel in a very central location in Cairns. The rooms are the only thing that lets it down - dated and a little shabby, especially the bathrooms.
Saying that the front desk were helpful, and also the tourist desk for booking trips to the reef and Daintree rainforest. Also the pool was nice, and not that busy. Breakfast is advertised at $28 each but negotiate on the desk - I got it for $12.50 but you have to mention when checking in. There is also free internet in the lobby but not in your rooms.
My door broke during my stay and i couldnt open it twice, but it was fixed the next day. Its quite noisy though in the corridors with a huge gap around my door so you hear every noise outside. Also my room adjoined another and it was like I was sharing a room with someone else...Take some earplugs!
I would recommend it as it has all the features you need - but Novotel - upgrade your rooms please!
