Moved to this motel after two nights in a horrible wheelchair accessible room at another hotel in Cairns, room was very clean and bright and inviting. Plenty of room for my husband to wheel around in the living area of the room, bedroom area was a little cramped. Staff where friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.

We stayed for a month and found it to be the best value apartments in Cairns. We have been coming here for 5 years and this is by far the best stay we have had. Leanne and the team are very friendly, helpful and go over and above to make sure that we are comfortable. They even provided me with a place to secure my bike. The Apartment was fantastic and had everything we needed. Highly recommend.


This wonderful boutique hotel was our sanctuary for 7 nights and I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is centrally located within the city of Cairns and was within walking distance to everything we needed - shopping centres, restaurants, bus stations, rail station, lagoon, harbour and marina. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with balconies looking over the street or the pool. The hotel has a lovely relaxing indoor outdoor feel to it and the pool was heated and never overcrowded. The staff were very obliging and friendly and any requests were handled diligently. Make sure that you don’t miss the rooftop area which has amazing views over the harbour, city and mountains.

excellent hotel, clean , tidy rooms with a balcony. Pool area is nice and relaxing. In the heart of Cairns, walking distance to marina , shops, restaurants. Staff are very helpful and friendly. We had 3 rooms booked and arrived early and they done there best to have the rooms ready. I would recommend this hotel.


Rooms very comfortable with every little detail taken into consideration, although all the switches were a little overwhelming at times! Lounge really comfortable. Kitchen has everything you need, except a tea strainer. Light in the wardrobe to see into your suitcase was perfect. Found the bed a little too soft. Very good set up with laundry in the bathroom but laundry detergent not provided. Rainforest shower with light was stunning. Electric toilet was fun to use. Balcony was a shared area and not undercover. Loved the location as you could wander down to the Night Markets and many resturants close by. Undercover parking provided at no cost. Will definitely return.
