Disgusting Place
I didn't stay here it was horrible and in a not so good area of Cairns. Too far away from the main area. Found a much better hotel to stay in.

Extremely disappointed
Room was infested with cockroaches. Bathroom was disgusting with no soap holder and old used soap left in shower. No cutlery or milk supplied. Peronal items stolen off 2nd story balcony and was told by management this is common and did nothing about it. No pets allowed at this hotel yet guests on ground floor had a dog that got out and went swimming in the hotel pool at night. Rooms are not sound proof AT ALL tv's and normal conversations can be heard clearly in the next rooms.

One night stay
Large rooms, Air con worked on hot days, good location.
Saw a number of insects in bathroom although not in living area of room. Can see is an old property although relatively looked after well. Would suggest some sort of parking for guests.

A little dissappointed actually.
The guy that checked us in really explained things well and was very happy. When we got to our room we turned on the A/C and it really wasn't up to the task. The lights over the queen bed didn't work and there was no remote for the TV. I tried to use it manually, but it didn't respond to anything. We were a family of 4 and wanted to have breakfast the next morning in the restaurant, but it wasn't open at all. It did advertise that it was open 7.00 am to 10.00 am daily and no sign said that it wasn't open on Sundays. We ended going down to the Cairns Esplanade and having Breakkie there. We checked out at 8.45 am and it (restaurant) still wasn't open then either. I tried to explain the faults of the room to the receptionist, but she didn't seemed to interested to know. Won't stay there again at all. I have to admit though, it was a nice walk on Saturday night from the city back to the motel. Took us about 20 minutes. Helped ware off the great food that we had at "Bushfire Flame Grill"

l chose this resort for its location, and its facilities. The pool area was great, and spa was very relaxing, room was a good size

Good for the price
Cheerful staff, nice pool, good walk to city
It's an ageing motel but good value for money. 15 minute walk to town and not a difficult walk. It would be great if they replaced the pillows as they are quite worn out and a good pillow really makes for a good night's sleep.
