I agree with all the other reviews. Great position, easy access to shopping and restaurants, walk out the back door to the beach. The staff were always helpful and accommodating while the food and atmosphere were comfortable and relaxing. Thank you we will be back.

Lovely location. We stayed in an ocean front room and could see the waves. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The pool is great,warm and protected and you can do laps in it.

We stayed for 5 nights and our spacious room, bed and toiletries were excellent. The rooms are well designed with balconies providing some privacy. More shelf or drawer space for clothes, such as bedside units would be welcome. The Hotel's position to the town and beach is also excellent and this is obviously reflected in the price. I feel though,... More

We booked at quite short notice and I did not do my research properly.

If you want to be a stone's throw from the beach, walking distance to the shops and restaurants (Macrossan St), in a small intimate hotel - this is the place for you.

Top marks for location, complimentary bus transfer from Cairns airport and nice welcome from Elena at reception.
