The best thing about this hotel is the location and friendly staff. Other than that the hotel looks like a cheap motel in dire need of renovation. Carpets had lots of stains. The rooms are dark with not enough lighting. Furniture looked like from the 1980's IKEA catalogue. The bathroom door was smashed ...
Very friendly staff. Large hotel, built on top of an empty shopping mall. Six or seven different restaurants to choose from on the premises. We stayed here after a liveaboard dive trip and the hotel is walking distance from the Marina, even with luggage and dive gear.
The staff were very nice. The hotel is in a very good location if you want to be able to walk easily to lot of things especially to many restaurants, cafes and bars. Also just a 5 minute walk to the Reef Fleet where many of the tours to the Great Barrier Reef leave from.
I had these problems in 1 night of stay: 1) AC did not work 2) There was a constant noise of something knocking on the ceiling 3) There is a colony of bats right outside. So, don't expect that you will be able to sleep in night. 4) Bed bugs
We booked for a week and found it very relaxing. We wanted a break and Palm Cove is well located for tours etc to attractions in nearby Cairns. We ate in a different location every night, which was fun. We enjoyed our stay but I messed up the booking and we wanted to add an extra night's accommodation. ...
Over all I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this hotel was for only $60 a night. It was equivalent to a $80-90 hotel in the USA. The bed wasn't amazingly comfortable but the room was clean and quite.
It's all good! There is no better location on Palm Cove--this is the one. The beach is right out the front door, and adjacent to the protected swimming area. [We didn't know until we got there that in Australia they string nets across some beach areas to keep out nasties like sharks or jellyfish--only during certain times of the year, and with certain weather/wind/rain combinations. We were affected two days out of our 6 day trip (red flags for the entire cove and no swimming) so it is not a big deal--just we were not aware of nets used on swimming beaches throughout Australia during certain times.] This hotel has eveything for a nice stay. Tour coordinator in the lobby who was very helpful in picking out tours. Restaurant out front is awesome, but pricey like all the hotels. There are many, many restaurants along the beach area to choose from--look for the "dinner specials" to save a few bucks. There is regular city bus service to shopping centers and Cairns!! And the bus stop is right next to this hotel! That's a blus if you want to head to town and see the sights--or go to the casino downtown or catch a tour from there. The hotel has GREAT AIR CONDITIONING! We were there in January, very hot, it was so nice to come back to the room and cool off. Room service, staff, all GREAT! Electric hot pot to make coffee. Supermarket right next door to the hotel. Post Office right next door to hotel. Pool is very nice, great place to unwind. Overall, EXCELLENT place to stay and unwind--there is no better location in Palm Cove. We would go again.
Nice people at front desk. Beds are a bit hard. Good location to restaurants and shopping.
The hotel was ok. Had a reasonable view. Great concierge recommendations. Walking distance from the Esplanade.
