God Value. Convenient. Bed was like a hammock :-)
Good value close to the centre of Cairns city. Was quite good for my quick trip. My bed (Room 7) was more like a hammock and a bit too soft but then again others may like this style. Otherwise good value and convenient for my stay.

Review by Rob.
It is conveniently placed. The room was adequate but that's all. The light in the hall way was not working. There was no battery in the smoke detector. We stayed 10 days and the room was never vacuumed. Coffee & tea was provided but not automatically replenished. The bed was very uncomfortable. We had to ask for towels to be replaced.
