Excellent location - close to the shops and restaurants but quiet as well. The ocean view rooms were fantastic especially with the kitchenette. The reception desk was very helpful in planning the excursions.

Stayed here for four nights. This hotel is at the very end of the Esplanade, across the street from the playground and a little boardwalk cafe. The hotel had everything we needed, the room was clean. It was nice having a fridge, basic dishes and an electric kettle. We went to Woolies and bought cereal and bread for breakfast on...

We stayed a few nights in an ocean view room in October and found our room to be spacious and clean, with everything you could need for an enjoyable stay (including kitchenette with microwave). The separate bedroom had a very comfortable bed with its own balcony, the views from both balconies were fantastic. This is our second stay at the...

The hotel & rooms were good, staff was friendly and the location at the beach front nice. However, regarding the room rates we would have expected a more modern hotel with better facilities. So not really disappointed, but wouldn't recommend it either if other places in Cairns are still available.

Easy walk to the main areas of Cairns. Right across the road from the esplanade which is a nice place to go for walks. I had a 5th floor unit facing the ocean, great views! Thank you to the staff for being so helpful! Would stay here again.

Good to stay overall. But the room facility was not quite supported, and that's a bit different from what I think. I dont like the washroom as it was easily wet. And that's not fit with the score I saw from the web. Actually, we were a bit disappointed for that.
