Excellent stay!
Nice hotel and our room very spacious for our family of four. Great views of water and mountains from balcony, clean and excellent location. Just a 2 minute walk to the boardwalk/esplanade and about a 12 or so minute walk to the reef boats.

Living without dependable WiFi and bad a/c
Not even on a par with the Holiday Inn Harborside just Down the street.

Really great value!
Excellent place! Very roomy. Great view. Close enough to bars, restaurants, and the beach without being too noisy.
Jess, us5 night romance trip
Very Good 8.0
Good enough for our overnight stay
We stayed overnight (checked in past midnight) and checked out by 11 AM to hop on to a ferry to Green island. Was good enough. It's been a long time since I stayed in a hotel that still used keys instead of key cards. Old school but did the job. They were courteous enough to give us complementary late check-out (for an hour). The coffee tasted horrible. The room air conditioning had a damp feel and smell to it. Very clean room and toilet otherwise. It was more than enough for our overnight stay. Very close to the ferry terminals and shops/restaurants.

Quick stopover in Cairns
We were here for one night, because we had an early flight out the next day. The hotel is well located. It has free parking (great feature!) and is reasonably priced. I think it represents a good value.
