Recent Stay

Location, Service, Friendliness
Bed was comfy, location was good. Hotel rooms need updating though. For a four star you would think it would be in better condition. Still will stay there again

Great location. However hotel itself need update

Convenient location
Walking distance to marina. 10-15mins walk to night market. Hotel itself very worn down. Bikini smelled of urine after swimming in the pool. Booked with agoda secret deal. air enough but not again.

Nice entrance but dated rooms no working wifi.

Good location, friendly staff. Nice sea view
This is a reasonable hotel about 10 mins walk from the main shopping area. The rooms and bathrooms are dated and no way a 4 star hotel. The wifi only works reliably in the lobby area. You might get it to work momentarily in your room but expecting it to work will only frustrate you. We didn't have a terrible stay but I would not stay here again.

Position is fantastic and staff are excellent, being friendly and very helpful. Rooms are spacious and clean with well stocked fridge. However, hotel is noisy with heavy slamming entry doors and wardrobe doors. There is no sound proofing making it hard to get a peaceful night's sleep. Hotel is also dated and in need of an update.

Hotel has a prime position on the Cairns Esplanade but is old, dated and needs refurbishing. Over bath showers are difficult to get in and out of for some guests. Room was noisy, with heavy slamming doors. The restaurant food was caffateria quality at best. I ordered red throated emperor, which was overlooked and very dry as was my husband's meal of spare ribs. Food generally lacked flavour . The Pina Colada Cocktail for which I paid $15, tasted like cold, watery cream and was devoid of any flavour whatsoever. Possibly the worst cocktail I have ever had. In saying that, the staff from front of house, cleaners, bar and wait staff were all very courteous, friendly and helpful with nothing too much trouble.

view, bar, pool
towels were rough, room was noisy, female reception staff was rude. I requested early check-in in advance and followed with a phone call and all was confirmed until I arrived and was then rudely dismissed.
