Great location for a stay in Cairns
Pleasant enough stay...we didn't spend much time in our room as we were out and about everyday. Overall nice place...location is perfect, the shower pressure was amazing so that's a tick in the box. My only real issues were the sofa/lounge...it could have done with a clean. Some mystery stains I can only imagine the source of and, the bed in our particular room was obviously too big for the space. I had to slide along the wall to get in and out of the bed and only 1 bedside table. Probably better to not offer a King bed option if the rooms don't accommodate one.
