  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Nice hotel. Staff very helpful and friendly, especially if you need something (e.g. needed to change rooms upon arrival, wifi not working well in my particular room, so was given a complementary drink while it got fixed). Good to have the shuttle every hour in case one doesn't feel like walking to or from the CBD, although it's a lovely walk on the Esplanade. Breakfast buffet was included in my first stay, and was really good-- even for a vegetarian. Appreciated very much the espresso/cappuccino machine. Hotel is quiet, slept very well. Overall I'd recommend staying here. So much better than some of the other Cairns hotels.
