The rooms were very clean and well laid out. The view we had from the 8th floor was great, looking over Cairns harbor. Location was great, across the road was the casino and the main esplanade was less than 5 minutes walk. The marina where many reef based tours depart from was also only 5 minutes walk. The breakfast buffet was probably one of the best I have had at any hotel in Australia or overseas. Only complaint (although very minor) was that the pool was freezing cold - not enjoyable to swim in at all. But everything else was very good and staff were great.

A one-block walk from the Esplanade and from the departure terminal for the Barrier Reef, the hotel is also less than five …More
Amazing!!!! Food was fantastic, rooms are spacious (especially for being on a boat) and staff was always there to help. I felt like I was on a floating 5-star resort. They definitely go over and beyond to make your experience perfect. Everything from hot breakfast the moment that we boarded our shuttle boat to carrying our suitcases on and off the boat. Everything was smooth and perfect! Thank you so much!

Cairns is the gateway to Australia's famed Great Barrier Reef, and is a tropical getaway in its own right. Make sure to visit the Cairns Esplanade, the city's social and recreational heart. Walk, rollerblade, or cycle along the promenade. Soak up the sun or take a swim in the large saltwater lagoon. In the evening, dine in one of the many restaurants along the Esplanade.
