The room itself was fine, a little run down and old but clean and well equipped with all I needed in the spa room. However I would not recommend staying here or ever consider returning, because local LOUD drunks spend all night roaming from the nearby pub to the liquor store and hanging around right outside the room (it’s next to the street), trying to bum smokes off passers by and guests. After the liquor suppliers shut for the night the extremely drunk locals continued to party with their alcohol on the streets until dawn, brawling, swearing, and screaming at high volume. I am on a tight budget but splashed out on the spa room for one night as a treat for myself to relax and recharge. Relaxation was definitely not an option as laying back in a spa while intimidating, sad, drunks scream obscenities right next to the window isn’t my idea of serenity. I barely managed to get a couple of hours of broken sleep due to the extreme and alarming screams. It was Friday night when I stayed but I wandered past there on a Sunday night and it was just as bad. Aspect central clearly has no security or ability to keep the environment peaceful, staff are barely there and very unenthusiastic. The backpackers around the corner offered a much more safe and serene environment for a quarter of the price. You’ve been warned- stay away!

O.K. so it wasn't built yesterday, the rooms are spacious & clean,late check in(reduced hours covid19) text with safe code, key in envelope. early out ,key in box. never saw any staff, but spoke to Heather on phone,had booked for June, but held the booking,handy for food, shops, Cock & bull pub, tour pickups. as I was doing tours 3 days it was perfect for bed & shower,might not be there much longer, if your nostalgic for the 60's this is for you. sadly covid has closed the pool, but all up $70 a night for double is great value, just don't expect the Hilton.

Never use BOOKING..COM. Due to corona virus I have had to postpone my trip.Booking.COM refused outright. However, after contacting the hotel,Heather rang & agreed to hold my booking for 12 months. Well done, thats what we all should do

This is a budget motel at great prices located only twenty minutes drive from the Airport.The staff is very helpful, especially wonderful Heather who advised me about booking the attractions and the various options available.I was constantly emailing her before coming and she was most helpful.The location in Sheridan Street is nice, too. You have various eating options nearby with the extremely affordable Tandoori Nights,an Indian restaurant in the complex.There is a NIght Owl(like a 7 11),closeby there too.Reaching the Marlin Marina from here for Great Barrier Reef should not take more then twenty minutes.Most important, any tours booked through here will benefit you by a five percent discount.There is a small swimming pool here which we could not use because of a tight schedule. If arriving late, please advise Heather so that she can put your keys in a locker and give you the password for your room keys. Highly recommended.
