The location for me was good close to cbd and esplanade but more importantly it was quiet. Happy with the king size bed for $95. Didn't use the pool, laundry or the continental breakfast special, but available if required.

I wish I could remember the name of the woman who was running the front desk when I was there. She was incredibly helpful and very sweet! She made the stay amazing. She directed us to the night market and the shops near by which were about a 5 to 10 minute walk from the hotel. The only thing I...

Being greeted here after a long day traveling by a big smile was well received...... so often receptionist are in the wrong job and don't welcome you and first impressions are so important so 10 out of 10 for the Lady who greeted us, she was really helpful.

Perfect hotel for our family of 5. We had a two bedroom suite with two bathrooms. The staff were friendly and accommodating. They helped us book a last minute Great Barrier Reef tour, and offered wonderful recommendations for activities. I highly recommend this hotel.

Our family of 4 stayed here for a week before Xmas 2016. The rooms are nice enough, the decor is a lil bit old but still functional. The room was clean and of a decent size, the kitchenette is small but has pretty much all you need. There is a small pool with a bbq area as well. It is...

Thank you for your comments. Officially we are actually in the CBD and I have walked to the Esplanade on many occasions but I have never done it with small children. 10 minutes max at an easy pace. Thanks again.

Close to the CBD but on a quiet street this hotel is great value for money. Rooms are surprisingly spacious and clean, the grounds are well maintained and the pool and spa area are very good. The staff are great, very friendly and helpful. A very enjoyable stay and highly recommended.

This hotel is excellent value for money. It's an older hotel but clean and well appointed, and the rooms are pretty spacious with comfortable beds. It's convenient to downtown, an easy 10 minute walk, included in the pick-up lists of all the tours we booked, and just a nice quiet home base. Service was cheerful but a bit slow sometimes,...

Thank you for your review. Value for money seems to be a common thread throughout our comments. This is because we offer excellent , clean rooms, comfortable beds and a convenient location at very good prices. Thanks for noticing.

Clean and fine. Not right downtown but walkable. Large room with kitchenette. Beach/pool towels freely available for your excursion which was nice. Didn't try breakfast but understand it to be minimal. Great breakfast shops in town.
