Found the experience disappointing compared to our stays at Rydges Esplanade Cairns. Room rates are higher. Staff not as welcoming and helpful. Restaurant was not to the standard of other hotels

The experience was excellant. Only downside was the pillows were too flat and firm. The instant coffee sachets were not too good. I think Nescafe or Moccona sachets would be better. The air conditioning is very noisy. Plus side; Nice ... more

ID: bb29a2fd-ac69-4211-b991-f389b7c2a6edThe overall experience was satisfactory but not memorable.
The view over the water was delightful once the ugly empty block below the window was overlooked. The sleeping arrangements were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was adequate but very out dated.
