Recent guest reviews

Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and spacious. Furniture a bit dated. Location is on the main street,surrounded by shops and restaurants, and just a few blocks from the dive/snorkel boats.

Rooms were very dated. Parking was free but the garage doors are closed at around 7pm. We weren't told about this and had no way to get our car out if needed. There no staff available after 6pm (nobody at the front desk).

At first everything seemed OK. The screen door to the patio was opened and the room smelled heavy of perfume. We realized the next day that was on purpose. The rooms are not ventilated properly and it is very musty and smells like urine. We also noticed on the second day that the kitchen area was infested with little sugar ants. You cannot have food in the room without it getting ants everywhere.

Staff was excellent, rooms are nice, location is perfect. Would choose this hotel over any other in Cairns *IF* internet was not slower than dial-up people had 15 years ago.

If you want great value, spacious accommodation, friendly staff, and a location near on the Esplanade, in the heart of the shopping/restaurant district area of Cairns, next the the unique Night Market, this is the hotel to book - fantastic! Rooms have small, functional kitchenettes, comfortable beds, a spacious bathroom and plenty of space to spread out - the balcony was a nice touch - Really enjoyed our stay - Thank you!

Very friendly staff helped us with several bookings. Great location since we could walk to everything; right next to Night Markets and all the restaurants on Esplanade. Great view from our balcony of the New Year's Eve fireworks! Nice size room with full kitchen and washer/dryer, which we used.

I chose this Hotel / Apartment firstly because it was not far from the esplanade. Then because it looked so interseting with an Italian atmosphere. We were not disappointed. it proved to be a great place to stay. If I went again though I would request an apartment overlooking the swimming pool as this is the sunny side.Maybe if one went in the summer though it would be cooler on the other side. We were very comportable in our apartment though and we were very handy to retaurants and the Esplanade etc.

[...] We can't say enough positives about our experience! [...] and [...] were great owners along with their staff to make our vacation perfect! The hotel is located in an ideal location near the Esplanade, shopping and eating options! We chose the hotel for its apartment style option as it included a kitchenette and a washer and dryer so it made a nice base for our 12 days in Australia. The hotel staff made arranngements for us to visit the Great Barrier Reef, Port Douglas, Kuranda and Paronella Park. The hotel can arrange from over 600 tourist activities!Nothing could have been better for us!
