stayed in an ocean view, nice & clean, roomy, view, everything you need and has to be the best location in Cairns. Close to everything, will stay again for sure. May not be the most modern but have stayed in those and this beats them hands down

This hotel is in an excellent location, everything within walking distance with plenty of places to eat. Staff are very helpful. Rooms are a good size with decent facilities. We had a room with a sea view which was lovely.

Always my first choice in Cairns. Megan on the front desk showed compassion at a very sad time. The best location in Cairns being right on the food strip. Yet never noisy :) And the views..... select a room on the 5th floor and higher and take your camera !!

Beautiful place to stay with a very nice pool. I believe it has the best location with access to the heart of the streets and directly across from the free community pool overlooking the sea. Very friendly staff and a tidy place. I would recommend anyone wanting to stay in a hotel in Cairns to go here.

Bit out dated of decoration and the room, the toilet bowl is horrible as we found 2 cracks from the middle to the bottom. It makes us nervous when use it and afraid it will collapse suddenly. However, the location is excellent for shopping, walking and dining..
