I wish I could select three and a half. Its not quite a 4, but better than a three. It has a great location being close to the esplanade but sufficiently 'tucked away', and is quite 'grand' in an oldstyle colonial way. We spent three nights here as it came up at a reasonable price for a room for three people (with my teenage daughter). As such the room was a good enough size although the double beds are great for one but a little small for two.
We didn't make full use of the facilities - the gym or the pool - so I can't comment. And also, because we were 'budgeting' and getting one room rather than 2, we found the $75 per head for the dinner buffet too steep for us. But there are plenty of places to eat out nearby so its not a problem. Also I'd recommend Bang and Grind for morning coffee, just around the corner on Spence Street, and not the breakfast place next door where they took almost an hour and still got the order wrong.
The entrance is nice - could have used a big table with flowers to make a bigger impression perhaps.. anyway... and we used the valet parking for $20/day as an alternative to having to keep finding a metered spot.
A couple of minor niggles - even though the room was for three on two occasions they only replaced towels etc for two, and once it took 15 minutes for the valet to return our car.
But I'd stay here again.. A number of the other Cairns hotels seem quite 'dated' in comparison and, if you get a good room rate, its not a bad base for a holiday.
