This is prime location and well equiped. We will return. Small decks over the water make it very nice. The. Restauraunts on the boardwalk are great. Cairns esplanade is a nice walk 24/7. Ref cruises are a 5 minute walk away. Just a big "yes"!

The hotel itself was nice... the room was just big enough for my partner and I and our belongings. It was very quiet and the front desk was often unsupervised, however when it was,...

The hotel is well positioned for the waterfront restaurants and to get to the harbour for embarking on...

We were offered a room with a view...

Great location first up - right on the Esplanade, right on the Water. Rooms were large, bed comfortable with a great view as well. Good stay for work trip. Also have a large number of restaurants within walking distance of hotel so very convenient.
