Great hotel for a family of 4. Adequate space, good location, by the boardwalk. 15 minute walk to the marina. Lots of good tourist shops and restaurants nearby. Public pool is nearby with water zumba and yoga on paddle boards. Great place to people watch. Beautiful city

Rooms were spacious but the bathroom was a very tight fit. It had a motel feel with doors on the exterior. Decor was OK. Night manager was very friendly and quickly addressed a mistake the hotel made on the reservation. Did not try the restaurant, but they do have a breakfast buffet at an additional charge. The hotel was reasonably...

Have just returned from a holiday in Cairns and the hotel was part of a Web jet flight and hotel package from Brisbane, only point to make is the package is just flight and hotel. There was no airport pick up , breakfast was not included and we eventually found out that we had carry on luggage only, above 7...

Stayed here for a week over the new year and it was awesome. Staff are exceptional and the rooms are very tidy. Meals were great and the hotel is central to everything. Close to the boardwalk and all the restaurants. Loved the gift packs on arrival, nice little touch. We will stay here again.

I recommend room 725. The balcony was perfect for watching the sun go down over the ocean. The room was large and clean. The bathroom was tiny but it was easy to get used since most time was spent walking along the boardwalk(across the street) and the Esplande. Everything in Cairns is easy walking distance from this hotel. Friendly staff...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in December and would highly recommend it. The location is perfect, right on the esplanade near restaurants, shopping and the lagoon. Also within about a 10-15 min walk from the wharf where most snorkeling/diving tours depart. The room was comfortable and roomy and we loved the balcony facing the...

Was super excited about booking this hotel, with its superb location right on the esplanade and walking distance to the shops, and the room photos looked so perfect. Luckily we were spot on with location, were thrilled with its place right on the bay and close to shops and restaurants. The staff also were really lovely, felt like old friends...

There were really a few issues thoughout our stay. First. The pool was in desperate need of a decent clean. Daily. It dampened the whole relaxing experience. The spa was awesome though.
