Great location

The best things about the hotel were its location, price and character.
The showers were horrible. There is no hot water and unfortunately they're communal. Otherwise everything else was fine.

Great as usual

Value, Location, Breakfast deck
Always a great place to stay in Cairns. My only complaint, as ever is that the internet barely works in the rooms. Fix that and it would be a perfect stay.
