5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I arrived very late at night extremely tired after travelling many hours by plane and was leaving early next morning for another travel connection. Was very impressed by cleanliness , comfort and arrangements made for my late check-in. It is a very convenient location being across the rod from Cairns Central and I’m looking forward to spending another night there on my return trip where I will have a few more hours to enjoy the facilities.

4/5 Good

Disliked: Room comfort
Some Reno’s done but more is needed
Our stay was decent - the bathrooms were clearly renovated and looked nice. The bedrooms were surprisingly nice as well - art on the walls, nice lamps and bedsheets, etc. however the bed was the squeakiest thing on earth. You would sit and it would be a very loud squeak. Let alone roll over at night. The kitchen needs work. It could be a lot nicer with some new paint or drawer protectors. It also needs more tools such as drying racks, more washing sponges, etc. overall decent place but the kitchen and the beds sucked.
