Nice first impression and the staff were excellent from booking to checkin. The studio room was clean and fresh on my arrival and was a good size. The out look from my very small balcony was over the car park next door and a brick wall. Bed and pillows were very good and all bathroom amenities were standard. Price was...

The room itself was fine- clean and comfortable enough. The woman who "greeted" us (and I use this term loosely) was the reason we decided not to stay a second night. It's not hard to pretend to enjoy your job, fake a smile or at the very least not be rude to your guests. The rest of the staff seemed...

Hi Lauren B, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with me on your recent stay at our hotel and I am sorry that you did not have an outstanding experience.

Situated close to the restaurant precinct. Rooms are clean and spacious with a mini bar. We did have an issue with the hot water but being summer in North Queensland this wasn't such a big deal. We reported it to the staff upon departure. Rooms are good value for the price.

We had a long drive from Port Douglas but had a friendly welcome upon our late arrival . The room was clean and spacious with everything you could need. The only thing that was unfortunate was the pool was cloudy and housekeeping was cleaning the room beside ours at 8:30 am. I would still not hesitate to stay there and...

Travelled 4 hours late in the afternoon and reception staff were great on arrival. Had planned to stay 4 nights but were so tired we decided to stay 6 nights as we were so comfortable there. Is a great location, walking distance to many nice restaurants and close to city. Would stay again
