Perfect stay in the perfect location. Right near the night markets and all amenities. The one bedroom unit was very clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable with a selection of pillows to choose from. Airconditioning was great. My only comment for improvement would be that the unit was a little dated and could do with some cosmetic improvements...

Great location and at a good price. If driving get in early (by 1500) to get a parking space. Apart from that service was excellent. Great location if exploring the reef. Easy walk to the ferry terminals.

Currently construction work is going on next door and so loud our room was impossible impossible to stay in after 7am when the jackhammers started. The hotel is a bit tired, no staff on site after 6pm -8am to sort out any issues.

This hotel is centrally located with a great ocean view. It was secure, clean, well stocked and a pleasure to stay at. I would highly recommend it. The only downside is that internet is not included. We paid for the service, which was provided by a private internet company, and the internet connection was not good at all. We ended...

Parked once for three day visit and never used car again. All my needs met within walking distance. All restaurants that we visited were of top notch quality. Great environment as a holiday environment.

We have just returned from our short break in Cairns and staying at our favourite hotel.As usual we were met by Brian and although the previous girls were no longer working there,Volter and Margit,the new staff members were very efficient and friendly. We were unable to have our usual room but the room allocated to us was just as good....

The owners and staff were friendly and more than accommodating. Even though we had a magnificent ocean view, the hotel's garden view added another aspect. It was a pleasure to "come home" after a long, exciting day.

We never saw anyone from management. Our only contact was by phone or notes but the stay was very pleasant. This is like an automated hotel. You have to find how to get in and out. No room cleaning, towels found at lonely reception, but safe place, great location, quite ample and clean. Would return gladly. And nice price. Just...

Could not get a better place to stay. Large rooms, comfortable beds. Location is wonderful. Stayed four nights on level 6 with amazing views and returned for another two night with garden views on level 2. Easy access to esplanade and all the restaurants. Free parking available with your stay. Plenty of car hire places around the area. We hired...
