Winter Escape

Position, Price, Facilities
A perfectly situated place to experience Cairns, far North Queensland coast and country and the Great Barrier Reef. After a long wait to check into our room we were not disappointed by our spacious and well appointed apartment. Reception staff were friendly and helpful and the room was clean and well set out. Constant background noise I assume originated from the bathroom ventilation system and the air conditioning was quite noisy too although we didn't need to use this much due to mild temperature. A great escape from the winter chill and we would definitely stay there again.

Going downhill

Location location location
have enjoyed my stay here many times before However last stay was disappointing The internet connection in my room would not work The main problem with this was that nobody seemed to give a care about it The TV was too dark to see clearly and frustratingly the ability to adjust had been removed, again this was not an issue for the staff to care about The good quality iron was let down by an ill fitting board cover, I didn't bother to tell the staff, I'm sure they would have rolled their eyes behind my back

Great Appartment right on the Harbour

Well equipped appartment, location and close restaurants
We stayed in a 1 bedroom appartment. The accommodation is close to the marina and casino. The rooms are well equipped and clean. Dundee's Restaurant at the bottom of the hotel and on the boardwalk do great lunch deals $17.95 mon-fri. Evening meal was really nice as well. We ate there 2 days in a row and the evening as well. Great position if you plan a cruise, as we did. You just need to walk out onto the pier from your accommodation. Lovely pool/spa area up top, with great views. Staff always very polite and helpful. Only negative, our room smelt damp. Was given spray but didn't really work. Overall great hotel and would stay there again. The hotel does not have a restaurant but advertises Dundee's in their lift. Parking is not included and costs $10 per 24 hour.

OK but could be better

location, view,
We stayed twice, in a studio and a 1 BR. The rooms were good, but the whole is not what it could be. It is a nice apartment hotel with some rooms having a lovely view of the water and water traffic. The rooms were very clean and well serviced. There is no restaurant in the hotel, only on the Esplanade below, and while they offer a choice at prime time there is nothing available on site for breakfast and nothing out of hours (we arrived very late and having missed our dinner because of a rough flight). Most of the staff were warm and helpful, but some reception services were not efficient. One bed we had was very good, but the other too soft and uncomfortable. One of the bathrooms was badly designed, with the shower door hung the wrong way so that you could not step out of the shower onto the mat and dry floor. Some of the hallway carpets are getting worn and dingy. The free wifi is only for 30 minutes and not easy to get onto. All up, it is a good place to stay in central Cairns, with on-site parking and friendly staff, but a bit of work could make it much better.
