We stayed at this hotel one night before flying out of the Cairns airport. We weren't there very long but everything in the room seemed nice. The only issue was a lack of parking.

It was good for the money you spend.. The pools are fantastic all three of them.. Breakfast could get better. And rooms would be more clean..location is not so good but if you have a car is OK cairns main street is 10 min away. Bus stop and buses keep going at center from the hotel but not so often... Overall I would stay there again.

Just average

The hotel staff were extremely nice and very helpful in assisting with booking a tour of the Great Barrier Reef. The hotel location is outside the city so the saving may be spent on transportation. The hotel offers a shuttle to town for $4. I would recommend taking the city bus which you can get across the street at the mall for $2 and runs more frequently.

ignore the negative comments, It is great!

I read the comments from others about this and was skeptical. The TV in the room was an older model and Yes, it is not located downtown. I had a rental car and could go where I wanted so I didn't care. The hotel was clean, had a nice pool, the rooms are large, and the best part was that the rooms were the cheapest ones I found the whole month I was in Australia. I wish I would have tried this one out when I first arrived at Cairns. I would have stayed here longer.

Nickel & Dime Hotel

The hotel is far from the city. The hotel buffet breakfast is overpriced. They advertised electrical adaptors but don't have any. If you want an extra towel to take to the beach, extra charge. If you want to take the hotel shuttle to the city, extra charge. If you want to access the internet, extra charge. The TV has a whopping 4 channels. Bugs in and outside the room

far from everything

The room was as big as a small bedroom and there were tiny ants everywhere. The pools were freezing cold and there is no hot tub or anything like that. The people at the front desk were helpful but acted as if you were bothering them every time you asked a question. We were far from any shops and any restaurants, at least a ten min drive. We were a thirty min. drive from the beach. It cost money every day to use the room safe. The hotel had a bus that went to the shops and restaurants for 8 dollars each for every use. The hotel had one place that sold a 21 dollar breakfast which served the same exact thing every day but not lunch or dinner. The floor drain in the bathroom brought up soap suds in the middle of the floor after every shower. The television only showed four channels all of which were always on the news. This hotel looks nice but its NOT in a nice area! While walking down the street we were threatened by a bum for not giving money. The hotel also serves as an apartment building. You can hear any noise outside of or next to your room clearly. I know it is a good price but considering how it will effect your experience I would upgrade.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

If you want to eat anywhere other than fast food your best bet is the hotel bus that will either take you into town for 8 dollars or the sister restaurant in the other hotel for free.
