Smallish to say the least but had been fully refurbed recently. A few small chairs at the meal bench would have been nice and the shower cubicle even though super modern splashed water order into main bathroom area. Either a plinth and or a door/curtain would have stopped this. Still a comfortable studio to say the least.

While at reception had a staff member come in complaining about another staff member going home to the person serving me. Asked about parking and was told to park on the street which would require the car to be moved every 3 hours during the day to avoid parking tickets. Told them this was not suitable for us. Was still charged for the 3 days even though we did not stay.

Dear Mr Wein, We are sorry you chose not to stay with us. When booking you would have been aware that the property does not offer off street parking. However our staff member explained to you that there is ALL DAY FREE parking in the next street over, which is only 2 minutes walk away. We think it is very harsh to review our property with a 1 star review when you made the decision not to stay. We do hope you still enjoyed your time while visiting Cairns.

Reception hours advertised on Wotif were different to reception hours on booking in. I had to make a special trip to collect the keys. Lacking nice little touches that would have been consistent with the quality of the accommodation. Eg. Water in the Fridge Only one face washer and one soap. Only one biscuit. No tissues.
