Wish I could give it a 3.5 review. I booked online through the hotel website. We arrived around 8 pm and checked in without problem. The receptionist gave us two free drinks at the hotel bar also. The bar is only open until 8, so we didn’t get to use them that night. The restaurant has very limited hours, and we never made it there to eat. The free wifi at the hotel was much appreciated as apparently nowhere in Australia does this. The room itself was nice. It’s a small hotel so there really is no bad room locations. The air conditioner in the room is pretty marginal. We had it running the whole time, and it was never able to keep up. It would have been absolutely useless in the summer weather. There is no bathtub in the rooms, only showers, so if you have kids, this could be an issue. The front desk is only open limited hours, so late checkins or early morning checkouts could be troublesome. The location is fantastic. Only a 10-20 min walk to anywhere you want to be in Cairns. There is nothing fancy about this hotel, the rooms are basic, the pool is small, there is minimal parking, and there are no vending machines for late night snacking. The room has a small fridge as well. The only room for improvement is that due to the climate, the is always a lack of fresh air in the room. It’s always sort of damp, and there is no fan in the bathroom with only compounds this problem. I would stay here again as it’s only a $20 cab ride to the airport as well.
