- Rory M,

The staff both admin and housekeeping are always smiling and welcoming, I love the rooms down the back. Very quiet


Good: Awesome sized 3 bedroom apartment. Rooms were lovely and dark which helped us get some decent sleep after our long flight back to Australia. Beds were super comfortable too. Great lounge room and aircons throughout. Added bonus was the bistro/bar next door. Great atmosphere and yummy meals.

Overnight stay

- Janice C,

This is the second time we have stayed here in two weeks and it will probably be our regular accomodation for when we need to change planes when travelling from Weipa. What won us over was the comfort of the beds, the quality of the shhers and the quietness of...

The overall improvement of the unit we stayed in is outstanding. The only negatives were the aircon motor was loud and unfortunately our pillows were too high and too firm. Other than those small failings everything else was really very, very good. Thank you.


Good: Modern, new, comfy beds, clean, good value.

I have recommended this to my family but all families should consider staying here. Thumbs Up!

Good: Loved the privacy and quiet especially for sleeping in. Walking distance to Stockland shopping centre, bar next door and Dan Murphy bottle shop very close. Also loved the deals on meals and drinks. Excellent place to stay.

Mrs Shannon Winters - Couldn't have been happier with our stay

- Shannan W,

We were only visiting overnight as we had a race horse attending the Saturday Race Meeting . . . . so this was perfect, the horses stayed overnight at the Show Grounds and then attended the race course the next day.

VERY HAPPY TO RECOMMEND TO ALL. . . . and will be back if we travel back to Cairns.

Good: Customer service was excellent, inside the motel section as well as staff members in the hotel. Didn't expect to receive extra bonus offers (for the hotel) on arrival . . . a lovely gesture, and encouraged us to stay there to eat.
