  • 4.0.Fair

    Very disappointed

    After reading the reviews I was really looking forward to an amazing stay at an amazing hotel. The staff at reception were nice. Just a tip although the address for this hotel is The Esplanade reception is accessed from Abbott Street. Unfortunately the tiny two single bed room I was given was in my opinion no even worth half what I paid. I can only assume that the people writing the glowing reviews were lucky to get a better room or got a better room rate than I did. I have stayed at a number of hotels in Cairns recently and have had far better rooms that cost a lot less. On my experience would not bother staying here there are hotels that have just as good a position that are far better value.

    Great stay. Friendly staff and great ammenities. The only comment is that there needs to be more variety for vegetarians in the breakfast buffet menu. We were there four days and had very limited options.
