Would choose another hotel the next time I go to cairns. Staff is friendly and accomodating. Cleanliness in rooms is average, black mould in grout around bath, layer of sticky dust on toilet paper dispenser. Only one sheet provided on bed and the mattress was only halfway covered. Only one air-con setting, on or off and nothing in between. Carpet in hotel corridors and elevators are very smelly.

We had an apartment style room. Warning these are only serviced once per week (no one tells you this at check in). The quality was very low. We only had one roll of toilet paper for the week! The bathroom was obisoulsy not cleaned propelry or restocked given the low paper issue plus some left over headbands on the sink form the previous guests.

Check in and out was easy with friendly and helpful staff . The room itself had a great sea view and was spotlessly clean and quiet. Everything else was good. A downside was the trainee bar staff who were obviously inexperienced and we had to return a few drinks as they were not what was ordered e.g. Vodka, Lime and Soda came as Vodka, Lemon Squash and soda. Also a scotch and water came in a tall glass filled to the top with water. Big call out though to Winni in the bar and restaurant and who was obviously very experienced - she was great and incredibly efficient. Thanks. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Cairns Getaway. Room very comfortable and contained all requirements. Bathroom water pipes were very noisey. TV was very hard to hear when shower was in use or toilet flushed. Staff very friendly. Pool was to cool to use in winter. Short walk into the main dinning strip was appreciated.
