Adequate but not all room equal standard

Self contained facilities for families to make meals, location was right on the water.
We booked three 2bed rooms for a family group. Two of the rooms were ok but the third was quite dated. Between the rooms we gathered adequate pots and pans to make some meals. The location is on the water but was about a 15min walk to any cafes, restaurants etc. The staff were fine and had our room ready by midday. Overall the place has a bit of wear and tear.

Exactly what we wanted

Clean and tidy. Great views. Had everything we wanted. Very comfortable.
We loved our stay here. We have a baby and a 4 yo and had family visit us at the apartment. It was clean, spacious and had fantastic views over the water and mountains and grassy esplanade. They provided us with a cot and high chair and the beds were very comfortable. The apartment had everything we needed in the kitchen and the laundry. We would happily stay here again.

Great place to stay, on site managers very helpful

Room the best, view and location the very plesant
Everything was above acceptable and would stay there again. Stayed four days and would have liked room service but is not available. Location and unit in a great position. Hospital extension did not bother us. Great Hotel out the back, 'Cock & Bull' Only a short very relaxing walk to the main area of Cairns. Pool area very easy to fit into and relax.

Lovely hotel and service with a smile

the scenery view in the front of apartment
It is quite nice view in the front of hotel. On the Esplanade side, it is coral sea. very beautiful. The location is a little bit far for walking to the wharf especially in the tropical weather. Suggest to take taxi to go the shopping center instead of walking.

Comfortable accommodation but no lift

good self catering accommodation
* friendly helpful staff * comfortable accommodation * I wish I had asked for a ground floor apartment as being seniors the 3 flights of steps was a bit much for our aged legs which I guess was our own fault for not for seeing this problem
