My wife and I stayed here from 3rd -9th June. We had not stayed here for at least 10 years, not a lot has changed, except of course, the place has been updated. Clean, quiet, comfortable, good continental breakfast, freindly and helpful staff.

This establishment was really nice. Rooms are large and clean. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The adjoining restaurant caters for breakfast and dinner. I had breakfast there and it was good.

We stayed at this hotel for five days in April of this year. We found the staff very helpful and we were given an upgrade which was really nice. The room was very spacious and clean. It was a short walk to the Esplanade and city center. We dined at the resturant a couple of times but found it to...

We stayed 5 days. Excellent location,nice walk along the Esplanade to the city centre. Friendly, helpful staff. Only thing we didn't like was the step right in the middle of our room, even though we were on a ground floor room we still had to negotiate a big step. Chairs were very uncomfortable and no microwave or toaster just a...

It was clean and had everything you wanted. A lot of the hotel was closed during our stay as it was easter which I was not expecting. It was a basic hotel but the staff were friendly but after our last hotel it was a bit of a let down. Breakfasts were good. It would be great if you were...

My flight later in the day was canceled so I returned and stayed the evening. Rooms clean spacious and value for money, the internet...

For the money, I think this hotel is pretty good value. We stayed on 2 different occasions in March and paid different prices each time. The 1st time we got quite a small room, but it was clean and everything worked fine. The 2nd time we paid a bit more and got a much larger room upstairs and it had...

The Bay Village Tropical Retreat was a nice place to stay in Cairns. The location is a bit outside of the city center, but it was not a hard walk to get there along the Esplanade. It takes about 20mins to walk. I stayed in a standard room and found it very clean and comfortable. The room was not overly...
