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.
