Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Extremely tired oceanfront room . Totally unacceptable - thought our phone charger had broken inflight to cairns only to go buy another locally and realise power points in the room didn’t work . Reception were very aware of the problem so for next 4 days we had to continually reset the safety switch in the fuse box - again totally unacceptable . Room was poorly cleaned - cigarette burns in furniture , microwave broken , carpets filthy , dusty , air cond continually dripped from ceiling , what a total dissapointment .
