I was at this hotel for a conference in July 2005. Upon walking into the lobby, I was impressed as it had a warm, slightly opulent feel. Lots of wood, marble and massive arrangements of fresh flowers.
Rooms - the rooms were a little more simple, but still very nice, light & airy and with balconies. My room, on the fourth floor, overlooked the casino, but higher rooms overlooked the ocean or the hinterland.
Location - it's right across the right from the casino. Two short blocks in one direction to the marina and less to shops etc. About 300m to the city 'pool' (located just next to the beach (mud flats), a cross between a pool and a man-made beach, surrounded by lovely green lawn - but absolutely packed in peak season).
Food - my dining experiences were limited to the pre-arranged dinners and lunches for the conference group. Dinners were truly sensational (a buffet mix of seafood, pastas, gourmet salads, tiny little desserts to choose from), whereas lunches were a bit more basic (salads, hams etc), but all very fresh and of great quality. Room service breakfasts were very good and substantial.
Staff - were all fine.
The only annoyance was that my room key card kept 'losing it's memory' and I had to traipse back down to reception to have it recoded so I could get back into my room.
If I was travelling to Cairns for pleasure, this is the place I would stay as it's handy, reasonably priced & pleasant.
