10/10 Exceptional

Located on the beautiful Cairns esplanade, an easy, pleasant two block walk to the main restaurant strip. The balcony of our 6th floor room overlooked the side street and had a good view of the harbour. Muddy’s Café across the Esplanade serves breakfast and lunch, discounted for hotel guests. The room was spacious, had a queen and two single beds, table and chairs and a bench fitted with sink, frig, microwave, plates and cutlery. Bathroom had a large walk-in shower. Reception is 24-hour and the staff were welcoming and helpful.

Room to move with views
Loved the king bed suite, it was perfect for us with the two room and bonus that they both had a balcony with a brilliant view. The bedroom size was also very generous with comfy bed.
