Decent accommodation in Cairns
Not a luxury hotel, but the room/bed was comfortable, quiet & clean. Friendly reception staff. No breakfast served, but there's a nice/good cafe just one block away. Location is a little far from town centre/marina, but still walkable (20 minutes). The pool & small pool area is not bad, except the water smelled somewhat funky - either a weird cleaning agent or it was in need of cleaning. Overall good value for the price.

Not like a 4star hotel
The check in and out was easy and smooth. We’ve been offered an early check in which was nice. However, our overall experience was a bit disappointing given that it was a 4star HOTEL. Here is a list of things that disappointed us: - The bed sheets were stained and we had to ask for extra sheets until the cleaners change sheets the next day!! - We had to take our rubbish to the basement - There was no room services (not even a phone in the room to report an issue!) - Staff weren’t helpful regarding tours and attractions; we’ve been said to check tour catalogues ourselves
