    Location,close to city,marina,RSL club,childrens playground and parklands.Top views from sixth floor.Tour booking counter very handy and restaurant very good.

    The lock on the patio door did not work properly.

    Fabulous

    The staff were great. They were very helpful & friendly. The location was great, only a few mins walk to the Lagoon & town centre.

    It was a little old. But for the money it was great. Just needs updating. One really great feature was a retractable clothes line over the bath/shower so you can wash your swimmers out each night & hang it up to dry. Brilliant! :)

    Superb

    Great value for money, excellent service and convenient location. Particularly good service in the restaurant which is rare to find in Queensland. Housekeeping very friendly but unobtrusive. Reception very efficient and helpful.

    Only a minor issue was that the light bulb in desk lamp didn't work and generally poor room and bedside lighting (not very atmospheric but that's a problem with the new bulbs in lots of places which makes rooms feel more like hospital wards) with the exception of the bathroom which was fine. External appearance, entrance and landscaping needs some improvement but I think that is happening soon.

    Limited utensils in Kitchenette, although the Hotel states this in their overview.

    A great view and close to facilities. The air conditioning worked well and room service was great.

    Paint peeling on the ceiling. The toilet kept running.

    Fabulous

    Although the hotel did not look great from the outside it was clean and comfortable inside. Good view over bay.

    Looks in need of clean and facelift from outside

    I had my eighty six year old mother with me and the double bed room accomadation was just what we were looking for. My nephew is in Cairns and the hotel was very close to his home.

    location

    dead cockroach in the restaurants toilet.staff's not very competent. they can't answer the most obvious questions about the city or the immediate neighborhood. the hotel does indeed have a pool but it's so unattractive that i can't imagine anyone ever using it.

    Very good

    Great location, very close to both the Private and Public hospitals.

    Very old and in need of a make over! Rooms smell old and musty due to condensation from very old air conditioning system. Enamel on bath tub worn to bare metal!
