Judging by some of the other reviews I'm glad we paid a little extra for a room with a view over the pool. The pool area was well maintained and very relaxing. Pool towels provided for use and for off site tours. Lunch by the pool was awesome. Gardens in the grounds were picturesque.
However would of given 5 stars had the room not been in need of a little attention - towels grey, pillow cases grey and fluffy, very large stain on curtain, hole in shower curtain, inside aircon needed a good clean with black on the fins. But I hear there is an upgrade coming soon. Apart from that the room was clean and toiletries well stocked.
Sleep quality was excellent, no noise from the next rooms.
Location is perfect for an easy walk to restaurants, and about 15 minutes in different directions to the reef tour terminal or the mall/Kuranda scenic railway terminal, avis and budget rentals situated across the road.
Good news for bat haters the trees in the next property have been cut down, however for nature lovers we were able to walk one block to see them near the library and watch them take flight at dusk.
I would stay again.
