Perfect location, next to the esplanade, the sea, the free swimming pool. I would have liked the staff to be a bit less friendly and a bit more professional. I would expect more tourism advice, cleaner bathrooms, and not sticky tables. Breakfast is free but only available from 8AM, whereas most of the city excursions make you leave the hotel at 7:30.
I think it would be much better if you provide towels. Thanks

Never got round to try the breakfast because my tours always left earlier, but apart from that it was a great stay. The stuff is very helpful and fun to be around, they always know what's going on in Cairns at nights. I've only been there a few days but they made me feel very welcome. The rooms are small but okay for the price and clean. Showers are clean too which is a plus.
Checked in after hours and picked up key from hostel a couple of doors down, no hassle. Great location right on sea front.
