I absolutely loved the customer service that I received from the receptionist that was working on the 25/11/19 and then the other receptionist that was working on the 26/11/19. I am sorry I do not know there names but they were both beautiful ladies who provided awesome and friendly customer service. There were a few minor things that could have been better which were the doors that connect to the room next to us, they were quite filthy. There was also a used and dirty looking face washer left in the drain of the shower and the air conditioner in our room is definitely on its way out, we had it on the coldest setting but it did not keep us cool at all, we had to sleep without blankets as we were very hot and bothered because our room was very stuffy. It was really uncomfortable. I would stay again because these things can be easily fixed

We booked in on Sunday afternoon and left on Tuesday morning. Needed to ask reception about cable channels (which were advertised on this booking site, but were not available). Being Sunday, the notice on the door said reception would be open from 4pm -9pm ...... waited, waited, no reception .....rang on the outside phone and an operator said hours were 5pm - 9pm.......waited again, but reception didn't open. We have stayed here before and been happy but will look elsewhere next time we're in Cairns.

Good morning, Our apologies you have had a difficult time getting ahold of our receptionist for that weekend. Some weekends we close the office in the evening but we have someone who lives on site at the hotel who is always on call when the office is closed. If this happens again, Our after hours staff you were speaking with on the phone out the front of the hotel can give our onsite receptionist a call to meet you if you like. Regards,

Suitable for our needs. Comfortable bed and reasonable quiet. Not a lot of street noise. If the need arises we would certainly stay again.

Hi, My apologies you did not receive the room you reqested. All of our disabled rooms are on ground floor if you had of booked one of those we could have avoided this. When our hotel is running at high capacity we try to take everyone's request into consideration and do the best we can. I'm sure if we had a room on the ground floor we could have had you downstairs.
