My second stay at this well positioned hotel proved that the earlier experience was no fluke. My room came with a balcony that overlooked the Lagoon and beyond that the Coral Sea. Despite being on the busy Esplanade, at night it was as quiet as the tomb at night and, after a busy day's sightseeing, I was able to sleep like a log. The rooms are spacious and the balcony large enough for two people to take tea on the terrace. The hotel's restaurant was pricey but the food was satisfactory. However, best to dine early as one the place gets busy the food takes an uconscionable time to get from the kitchen to the table. The hotel provides a reasonably priced shuttle service($10) to the airport.
I plan to visit Cairns again next year and will stay once again at this hotel
