Lovely spacious rooms with a balcony and small kitchenette. The facilities were very good but the kitchenette could have been improved with a small hot plate to cook on. The staff were very friendly and welcoming.

Clean hotel and on the cheaper side but the service was deplorable. Was charged $15 for a toll free phone call and another $15 for a 'continental' breakfast that consisted of toast and make it yourself coffee. Unripe fruit, no yogurt (was advertised as having), very poor. Not worth the money IMO.

I stayed for one night at THC before flying out early the next morning. It's about a $20 cab ride from CNS Airport. The hotel is a stones throw from the central area of the city. It is only two blocks away from the Esplanade. Lake St will take you straight to the heart of Cairns. Check in was smooth... More

This hotel is centrally located in Cairns. Few minutes walk from city center, 10/15 minutes from the airport. The room was a bit out of date, old style I would say. The fridge completely empty, not even a bottle of water. The jug was empty too. In the middle of the night I had to go down to the hall... More

Small hotel with spacious rooms and king size beds. Bathroom is also big, with shower and well appointed. Very clean. Though it is not centrally located, it is within walking distance to all major attractions and restaurants (about 15m., cruise harbour 25m). Staff is very friendly and helpful and they help out with day trips bookings. As breakfast was not... More

Reasonably priced 'hotel' in a backpacker-paradise.. Rooms are clean and well equipped.. Hotel personnel always helped us with vital information about the city and things to do in there.. Breakfast spread was very basic but almost all the wonderful restaurants in cairns are at a walking distance

Me and my girl decided to go on a trip and found this hotel. When we first arrived we didn't know what to expect. It was our first time in Australia and never knew what hotels were like. When we first entered a room we were so surprised to see how big it was!! There were 4 beds and 2... More

This hotel has everything you could want at a reasonable price. It is clean and comfortable and surprisingly spacious - we had a two bedroom suite with lounge room and kitchenette. It is about a 15 minute walk along the beautiful esplanade into the shops and restaurants - a pleasant stroll in lovely weather. We had a dodgy toilet flush... More

We booked one night online for our first night/ arrival into Cairns. The room was spacious, very clean, and quite comfortable. It's not in the busy section of the Esplanade, but is a pleasant walk to the main Esplanade area and pier. There's a pool and spa. Most of the rooms have balconies. I travel a bit for business and...
