Despite its lack of glitz, this 14-story hotel has been the lodging of choice for a number of movie stars on location in Cairns. A 20-minute waterfront walk from downtown, the hotel offers a range of units, from hotel rooms to penthouse apartments. The one- and two-bedroom apartments face the sea; hotel rooms have sea or mountain views. Kitchenettes are in studios and apartments only. Rooms are spacious, but bathrooms are not. Out back are cheaper studios and apartments, with upgraded furnishings; in front is a pool and sun deck. On-site are a convenience store, a hairdresser, and a masseuse.
