Negative Reviews

Not very central

There is a feeling that this hotel is a little outside the heart of Cairns where many of the popular attractions are; it is more than a ten-minute walk to some of the sights which isn’t ideal. Guests also don't like what they consider to be a limited selection of restaurants in the hotel's immediate vicinity.

Noisy at times

Guests can be disturbed by traffic noise generated on Sheridan Street to the front of the hotel. They can also sometimes hear noise from other guests due to what is thought to be poor internal soundproofing.
