As we live 2 hours from Cairns, we usually stay overnight in Cairns at this hotel. We have found it to be in a great location - so the kids can go to the movies - and we can go out to dinner. We usually have an apartment so that we can spread out - this visit we booked a...

I stayed in a one bedroom apartment for 5 nights. Good location with Coles just across the road, yet still not far to walk to The Esplanade. Also convenient walking distance to the train station when travelling by train. Received a room on the lowest floor of the hotel (level 5), but still excellent views. Some minor issues had a...

We only stayed here for one night as a stop over. It is very central to shops and amenities as well as a short walk to the waters edge. The room was clean and had all that we needed. Staff were friendly when checking in and out and answered all our questions.

I spent a week here and enjoyed a one bedroom apartment on the eighth floor with lovely views of the City, Ocean and Mountain range. Biggest disappointment for me was not haven't anything else in the kitchen to cook with than one solitary saucepan. I went out and purchased a small frypan and a couple of microwave bowls, so I...

The studio unit was clean and comfortable, across the road from the Cairns Central shopping centre, great for picking up supplies. A short walk to the Esplande, helpful staff on reception and good value for money.

We were so glad that we chose this hotel because it offered us a 2 bedroom apartment as we are a family of 4, and it's close to everything, within walking distance! The 2 bedroom apartment consists of a twin bedroom, bathroom and with a small kitchenette, and with connecting door to another "apartment" which has a double bedroom, a...

We had the 2-br apartment, which is essentially a studio and a 1-br with the connecting door opened between them. So it's good that there are 2 bathrooms. Location is right across the road from Cairns Central Shopping Centre and it's useful to have Coles and Myers and Target close by. There are many restaurants within walking distance and the...

The apartments were clean and value for money. It was within walking distance to the marina/esplanade areas and had alot of local restaurants near to this accommodation. The staff were knowledgeable about tourist attractions and booked activities for us on many occasions.

We wanted a hotel in downtown Cairns near to the Reef Fleet docks, with microwave/fridge, and not too expensive. This hotel fit that and more. There's a shopping mall across the street, with a grocery store, "bottle shop"(liquor store),Kmart, Target, and highend stores. The staff was very helpful in finding restaurants, storage, and insider information. I highly recommend this hotel.

This was just perfect for us. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds. A nice little balcony with views to the mountains which was lovely. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We also used the swiiming pool on the top floor, even though it is relatively small it was still nice to cool down in the water. The views...
