This is a very beautiful property. It may be of age but it has everything I want in a suite. The cleanliness is of the highest quality. The staff are lovely, attentive and can not do enough to help you. My wife and I booked late to go to an AFL game StKda V Port. A lot of the properties in Cairns were completely booked out. So we had to look around. We loved it and a great price. The security on the property is of a high level. 24 hour access and staffed.

Could hear noise of other rooms all night. Mould all over ceilings in hallways. Cleaner entered our room without knocking. Cannot control the aircon temperature, it says it is 20-21 degrees however is much much hotter in the room and there is also no fan. Location is central to cairns and surprisingly not much highway noise however the noise from other rooms every time they used the bathroom or walked around above us made it very hard to sleep.

Hotel was neat and tidy, comfortable bed, clean linen and good aircon. The restaurant downstairs we didn’t attend as there were no vegetarian options. We ordered a desert once from room service, it was squished and melted. The ‘pool’ is also more of a pond, but we didn’t use it anyway as we were out and out every day. Staff we lovely and helpful.
