Stayed in February 2014 for 2 nights in the refurbished part of the hotel in a standard double room. Room was nice and spacious, clean and a comfy bed. Aircon worked well although was situated on one wall right next to one side of the bed- so it got quiet cold if you were sleeping on that side. Fridge looked slightly rusty around edges but worked perfectly well. Breakfast was included in price; on a veranda. Breakfast included cereals, juice, toast and eggs, it was perfectly adequate but if your expecting a full english breakfast or croissants etc you won't get it.
Location was in the centre of Cairns; lots of tourist shops and bars. There is a free outdoor pool on the esplanade and it was a 5min walk from hotel to reef fleet terminal where trips to the barrier reef depart from.
Not a high end hotel but great value and in a great location. Would stay here again.
