Family of 4 had a fantastic stay. Bed wet accident house keeping were very quick to remake beds. Any issue we had was attended to in short timeframe. Walkability is amazing for kids and those travelling as a family in all directions.

Location great. Room had great layout and partial water view. However there was a strong moisture smell of old/wet carpet that didn’t leave after airing the room.

Charles rahim liked this property in Cairns because it was in a great location near town. This building was built on the waterfront not far from the casino.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your review, I am so pleased you enjoyed our location and friendly staff. I too wish that our car park was a bit bigger! There is plenty of off street metered parking available and more car parks available also within close walking distance. I very much hope we can welcome you back again in the future.

We liked the location, but we had to pay an additional chatge for parking??? We are locals and feel this additional charge is ridiculous and punishes the locals.

Dear Valued Guest, I am pleased you enjoyed the location of our property. I am so sorry that you were disappointed with the charge for your parking. Unfortunately parking is no longer free anywhere in the CBD, we try to keep the parking prices as reasonable as possible and at $12, it is one of the cheapest in town. I do hope we have the opportunity to welcome you again in the future. Sincerely, Odette Laska General Manager Hotel
