Yes, this is a quirky, old hotel. I chose to stay here the night before a 5:30 am flight to Brisbane (I was in Port Douglas, an hour away). It has an excellent location, near so many restaurants, bars, etc. I did not have much time to explore, but did walk to the Red Ochre restaurant for dinner after I checked in. There was a major rugby game that night, so bars were packed and the streets were full of activity. The hotel was absolutely fine for a night, and really I could have stayed here for a few days given the excellent location. You get what you pay for, of course, so there are no frills, but a reasonable bed and bathroom for the price. Did anyone else think about the movie the Shining when walking the halls????
