spent 3 nights at this hotel. Good access to everything near the esplanade. A 10 minute walk to the train station to Kuranda. Hotel is nice, covered parking provided. Clean rooms with good floor plan. Kitchenette is small but worked. Never could figure out how to work the convection microwave though. Hotel was nice but Cairns is a tourist mecca...
