Friendly owners were quick to help us book the night zoo. Within minutes they had it booked for us. They also helped to give suggestions for how to get around and cooked a decent brekkie. We didn't like huffing all our heavy luggage (3 big bags of scuba equipment) up the stairs, but managed when we made it to the room. Decent size. Mini kitchen. Very liveable. It'd be a good place to live out of for a short week, and though a hike from the center of town, in a decent area with a short walk to the water. Cheers.

Comfortable and friendly staff.

Staff assistance. Proximity to tennis centre. Value for money.
My son was playing at a tennis tournament, so the location suited us, with also not that long a walk into town. The management and staff were very friendly and the accommodation was comfortable.

family of 4

friendly staff, clean room, decent bathroom
located close to airport,room size could have been a little bigger to accommodate 4 people. Friendly staff, good bath room size still a bit pricey for what we got

The worse exprience during our 1 month vocation

1.far away from downtown 2.stall cold not friendly 3.noboby clean the room even u request
My worse exprience during my 1 month trip in Australia. 这是我一个月澳大利亚旅行中最差的经历 1.this place is really far away from downtown at least 30mins by walk,about 25 round way by taxi.they do provide shuttle bus,but very limited trust me you can never catch and no one remind u for anything. 这个的tripadvier上的评分完全怀疑是刷出来的,location极差走到市区半小时,打车来回25澳币左右,2个人以上做公交根本划不来,酒店免费的车你永远赶不上。 2.staff are cold ,impolite and not helpful.we took the earliest flight to here arrive Hotel about 10 am,really exhausted but the old man in the reception desk told us that it's impossible to earlier check in even 1 min ahead of time.the lame excuse is house keeper requires 4hours to clean a room!the say problem did happen when we were in Sydney but hotel do the proper arrangement. 酒店员工冷漠,不友好。原因可能是我们是中国人,澳洲入住时间是下午2点但是一般酒店有房间一定可以让你提前住,或者马上打扫一个房间给你。可是当我们早班机到的时候却被告知1分钟都不行提前!!还被冷眼相待!后来看了前面的评价,也有中国人被如此对待!退房直接不说一声就扣了小孩子的钱,还冤枉中国游客偷毛巾!!店主老头子年纪大到不知道中国发展的速度还在歧视! 3.sanitation problem,the second day we asked maid to cleaning our room.but they do nothing the room remains in chaos.酒店根本不打扫房间,我们被告知床都是5天能换,要换可以再付钱,难道我们住一天第二天新客人也不换吗?打扫房间厕所纸巾也没有补充,垃圾都不弄掉,其他也没有整理。总体评价太差了!!花钱还要受气!

Close to Airport, Clean & Comfortable Room

Large Room, Cleanliness and Comfort
We spent 5 nights in a Queen Room Studio. Close to airport. Just under $20 for a taxi. Room was large and the bed was very comfortable. It was nice sitting out on the balcony. Kitchen was good. Tea & coffee in room. Fresh milk on arrival. Shuttle service offered options for drop off.. Local bus was easy to use. You can walk to town along the boardwalk if you are feeling energetic The only disappointment was that Cairns seems to be under the flight path from the airport; starting at 5:40 AM :( We could not sleep in. It probably wouldn't worry people who wanted an early start with tours. We would recommend this Hotel.
