Located in Cairns North, this hotel is within a 10-minute walk of Cairns Private Hospital and Cairns Esplanade. Cairns Marlin Marina and Reef Fleet Terminal are also within 1 mi (2 km). Cairns Station is 22 minutes by foot.
This hotel is located in the northern end of Cairns but the central shopping area with restaurants is still only a couple minutes by car or a relaxing walk away. The hotel is in a quiet but safe area across the road from a beach and long walking esplanade. The airport is only a few minutes from the hotel but plane noise was minimal and hardly noticed. Unfortunately the house keeping staff at the hotel were a great disappointment and it took me repeated requests to reception before I was able to get fresh towels, bins emptied and coffee resupplies. Additionally, when checking out I was asked to pay a room service fee for a meal I had not ordered or received. Room service had billed the wrong room. I refused this payment and staff eventually sorted it out. Despite those difficulties however I would not hesitate to stay there again because the room was very comfortable, the location was quiet and the area was easy to get around.
This hotel was a convenient walk along the waterfront to the city. This is handy if you choose not to have a rental car. The rooms are a little dated, that's not a significant issue though.
The room wasn't serviced on a daily basis, which I understand. However, when I asked for the sheets to be changed, the towels were changed and bins emptied yet, not the sheets.
There were very few vegetarian/vegan options available in the restaurant, this was unfortunate. That being said, there are a number of restaurants around Cairns that cater for these diets.
