We had a 5 night stay here in a studio apartment. It is within easy walking distance to the esplanade, shops, and restaurants, with the train station approx 15 minute walk away. The room was clean and well equipped. Pool with a spa and BBQ facilities was nice and refreshing. On site secure parking available was great. Check in/out was quick and friendly. approx $20 taxi ride from the airport. We would definitely stay here again when visiting Cairns.

We had a lovely, large, spotless, studio room that had a king size bed. ( we had a down grade due to an unforeseen problem - but this was handled perfectly by staff) Would suggest asking for an apartment facing Lake St. You need to be aware that you have to walk up stairs as there are no lifts, but that was easy. Secure parking. Friendly, helpful staff. A lovely place to stay. At the moment the pool is unable to be used as it is being renovated. ( There may be the occasional noise issue of homeless folk in the street, but overall that is not a problem) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone.

Close to Esplanade being a block or so away, location was fairly handy to shopping, restaurants etc. We were in a 2 bedroom apartment which was very spacious. Main bedroom had an ensuite which was great. Carpark actually backed onto room with sliding door access which some will love some will hate. Fully air conditioned for comfort, large kitchen and a laundry which was very handy. We were disappointed the pool area was completely out of service due to construction as all parking at public lagoon was full so we gave up trying after 20mins. All in all we really enjoyed our stay here.

Had a 2 night stay here in a studio appartment which was a good size and very comfortable, Kitchen well equiped, large TV and comfortable sofa. The bathroom did let it down slightly it needs updating. The shower curtain was sucked into the shower when we tried to shower making it difficult to wash, we ended up draping the curtain over the towel rail outside the shower but then the bathroom floor got wet...not a massive problem. There is free secure parking behind the hotel. Pool small with a jacuzzi, a few sun loungers in a nice garden setting, free pool towels from reception. The hotel is in walking distance to everything. Check in was easy, very friendly helpful staff who will book you any trips you require. We loved Cairns hopefully we can return at some point I would definatley stay here again.
