We stayed there for two nights and I have to say it's very good for what you pay . It's basic but I was very impressed with the cleanliness .... They have two swimming pools and laundry facilities which could come in very handy for your beach clothes and etc. The location is very good too and the staff were...

Stayed at a 2 Bedroom Apartment for 4 days. Felt that the place is kind of old; but with the full range of facilities. Something which I didn't like was that it was not walking distance to the city centre; took me like 30 mins walk there.

This hotel offers exceptionally friendly service, neat, clean and tidy rooms and a great position between Cairns Airport and the CBD. Although the corridors can be somewhat noisy at night, with late arrival wheels clicking along tiled corridors, the rooms are comfy and well appointed in a variety of different room types.
