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

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.
