Liked: The staff were very friendly and very helpful. Food at the restaurant was excellent...the chef made up something special on request. It was near to the beach and a lovely short walk from town. Everything was very clean and working. I was picked up and dropped off to Cairns for free. I met some terrific other travellers who I am still in contact with. The pool was great to cool off.

Disliked: Brian left no negative feedback.

Liked: Spacious rooms and very clean. Lovely Bistro serving excellent food. Very friendly helpful staff who will book trips etc with local companies. Also it was nice and quiet at night so now rowdiness - can get a good nights sleep!

Disliked: A little bit of a walk into main part of town but that meant it was quiet at night so you cant have everything. Also the walk was quite pleasant and took me about 10 mins.
