I had thought that I had booked another hotel that I had previously stayed at, I was wrong. It is a very budget hotel , that needs repairs and is very basic.

We decided last minute for a trip to Cairns, accommodation was central, we stayed in the family suite. Could have done with a dining table and chairs as the 2 seater lounge was the only seating in the room that slept 6. Overall good place to stay on a budget.

We booked this property as it was listed as being two bedroom. There is no door between the rooms!!! So no privacy whatsoever. They had workers there making a huge amount of noise with no warning. The water was turned off on me mid shower. I stood for 15mins with shampoo in my hair while my children had to go and ask the workers why there was no water. I never received an apology for that. The photos are NOTHING like the property. So much is damaged or broken, taps leaking. The amount we paid for the room was ludicrous.
