    Superb

    Our second visit to chl - we found it to be a great place to stay with wonderful views of the harbour. Close to the esplanade, shops and restaurants. Staff were friendly and we were surprised with a bottle of wine for our anniversary! We will definitely be back!

    Fabulous

    The location of the hotel was very good. Just next to the port. The staff at the front desk are all very helpful and friendly. We booked a twin bedroom suite and a single studio. Both rooms are clean and with good facility. Very good hotel.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is well placed in the city within walking distance of shopping, swimming and a wide variety of restaurants and cafes

    There is limited on site car parking with lift access to rooms. Alternate on site parking meant walking through the lobby each time to access the lift to the rooms

    Fabulous

    We had just come off the ferry from Green Island so the location was perfect as we had two children and four suitcases in tow.

    As the hotel was very long our apartment was a very long way from the elevators. The two bedroom unit configuration was also not very practical for two children with a king size bed in the second bedroom however, as we were only there for one night we were not too bothered.

    Fabulous

    The location and facilities were great. The hotel staff at the desk were more than helpful.

    There were only a couple of things that could be improved. Over our 10 day stay our room was only serviced twice and the towels weren't changed. Also another couch in the room would of made for more comfort.

    Modern, clean and comfortable. Good, quite airconditioning. Kitchen had all supplies. Lovely view from the balcony. Nice Swimming pool and gym. Good security.

    Paying $10.00 per night for parking. The Bars all on the inside of the floors in the centre of the building. Felt a bit like a jail. Maybe they should grow a rainforest up through the centre to have a better feel.

    We loved the view from our room and the layout of our one bedroom unit. It was a very secure and safe location and walking distance to all the facilities that we like to use. We will definitely stay at this hotel again.

    Wonderful location, just next to reef terminal and esplanade.

    Service was no good, the staff tried hard but were overwhelmed, not enough manpower to provide a good service.

    Very good

    Spacious room , nice bedroom good space wih kithinette, T.v space , lounge and balcony with fair view . euro laundry was a plus , after being a cairns hilton guest for the past 26 years , ( be it through work or holidays ,I think the apartment style accom , is such more practical and comfortable for an outdoors type holiday (Which is the appeal of cns and always has been , for me anyway ) . Than a hotel style accom option , E.g hilton or say the pullman . Expecially when you have a teenage daughter with you !!! . Whats a dad to do , anyway youll see us next year . thanks A.j Stocks

    Nothing really , youve got a good property , Very nice accom option .

    Clean and good facilities. Excellent location

    Being ignored while trying to check out as the hotel staff were more interested in dealing with everyone else. Would not take accor discount.

    Fabulous

    locality, the use of the apartment.

    We were happy with the location, the rooms air conditioner was very noisy and the shower handle kept falling down during a shower and the water leaked on the carpet in the bedroom side.

    Very pleasant, friendly and helpful service by staff at the reception desk. Awesome view from our hotel room - we were upgraded to eleventh floor and a two bedroom apartment - thank you. Very special indeed. Quiet location and yet a short walk from all the restaurants/shops etc.

    I can only comment that the vacuuming of the main living area was not up to scratch, there were batteries missing from one of the remote controls and the glass cooktop was difficult to operate as it needed to be operated by touch and this became very frustrating indeed as it took numerous attempts to get it to work each and every time we wanted to use it.

    Fantastic location, good value, staff very friendly and helpful. Nothing we asked seemed to be any trouble. Arrived early on A Sunday morning and left our bags in reception and the lady said they would try to have our room ready as soon as they could. Surely enough she rang to inform us our room was ready at 12.15. Will definitely be back and could not imaginen staying anywhere else in Cairns. After travelling all over Australia for the last month, the room we got with the harbour view from the balcony was one of the best we stayed in.

    The only fault we had was that our room was not serviced during our 3 night stay.

    Good

    Very unflexible for late check out. Room rather small and not of the highest standard

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    The staff were particularly helpful & friendly. The room was bright & airy with very comfortable beds & great bathrooms. The carpets were a bit stained & some utensils dirty, but otherwise kitchen facilities were good. It was also very quiet, no outside noise or inside noise such as airconditioning. Overall, we were very happy with our stay.

    The only thing I would have liked was a porta cot at no extra charge & more tea than was supplied.
