    Fabulous

    position was fantastic staff were helpful room was spacious and very comfortable

    room could have been aired prior to our arrival as it had a musty smell we opened the window to freshen it up I understand Cairns is in the Tropics and humidity causes smells etc but perhaps a short airing would have helped minimise the smell

    The beds were the best feature the pool was excellent and the food was really good.

    Menu was doubled up and the pool closed early

    Very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. The staff were very helpul and accomodating. The room was extremely clean with good attention to traveller needs and small comforts. The bed was divinely comfortable.

    I was disappointed with the view, but this would not stop me for using this hotel again. Very good value.

    Our stay was short, the staff were patient and tolerant. Night Manager particularly kind to us as we onloy had one key and returned very late.

    Fabulous

    The lovely Tapas we had and the reasonable priced drinks. Staff were amazing and very friendly. I have to thank them because my daughter left her formal dress in the wardrobe and by the time we landed in Brisbane I found a missed call on my phone from the reception to say that we left a dress behind. Thank you to Christine and Mandy.

    The dripping water in the shower all of the first night we were there. But I reported the next morning and was fixed immediately.

    I normally pay as soon as i check in but the reservation clerk was really rude and wouldnt allow me to pay, iv never dealt with such problem before. i dont take anything from the mini bar too. i know she was doing her job but isnt having your customers happy the way you want it ?

    The staff were not very professional on various aspects: 1. One young staff member could not give proper direction to the nearest supermarket. Then again, it is a country town so I should not expect too much. 2. The cleaning staff forgot to replace the milk. 3. Parking costs extra but when it was not used for one night, there was no concession to the fees. I stayed for five nights.

    The outdoor area, it was so relaxing and we loved how there was music playing near the pool.
