Apart from the various signs of aging, referred to by other reviewers, several things stood out for us to make this a 'not again' hotel. Mr Surly at reception was one; no coffee, tea, sugar and milk in the room, only available from reception was another; but the biggest turn-off was the breakfast. No skim milk and a poor selection of fruit was annoying but not a big issue, however the luke warm eggs, bacon, etc in the bain maries certainly was. Food kept below proper temperature is a real health concern. Cairns is a competitive accommodation market - check around and you will do better.
