We had an amazing experience and would definitely love to do it again.

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Carla K. Couples - 11/10/2019 AccorHotels review

The room was perfectly suited to our needs and had an amazing private view. We loved that our room was located close to all necessary amenities while having the option of also being quiet and tranquil and noise-proof. I would definitely request the same room again.

We enjoyed a comfortable stay in a convenient location.

Phil O. Couples - 09/10/2019 AccorHotels review

The lack of Internet in a modern hotel was rather dissatisfying - we coped, but equivalent hotels at similar rates offer this as standard. Tea and coffee supplies reflected motels of the 1970s...we didn't expect gourmet comestibles, but again, similar establishments provide much better fare. The ironing board and iron were very basic, but we were shocked that the ironing board had a bare cover on bare metal grille - hardly adequate, so we slipped a towel under the cover for some padding. We found our quarters sparse but adequate - even the small (these days) television and efficient air conditioning, but the "spa bath/shower" was inconvenient and very dated. The staff (usually singular, since your promotional letter pictured two people) were friendly, although their welcoming "G'day" rarely went any further, although we do project an air of independence and do not routinely seek help. Considering where your establishment is in the market, we do feel you might lift standards in small but significant areas. We are not envisaging returning to Cairns Break Free.

"Break free" from a hectic routine of life

Room was good but TV was small and no pay TV as advertised. Getting a park was very difficult and annoying.

Excellent and great value

Anonymous Business - 20/09/2019 AccorHotels review

For a business stay was satisfactory. Good kitchen and fridge size for in room cooking. Bed was ok, mattress a bit too firm. Bathroom could do with a makeover, but clean. Not serviced rooms, so longer stays with kids could be tricky with towels etc. my room was ground floor next to pool with private garden. Outdoor table and chairs need replacing. Very shabby. Good value for short stay.

Good accommodation in handy location.

Debbie G. Couples - 17/09/2019 AccorHotels review

Great location with good facilities. Comfortable bed. Room a little dated. Noise from outside can be heard but not that bad that you can’t sleep.

Room was as described but some issues as below

Customer review rating 4.5/5

L S. Couples - 16/09/2019 AccorHotels review

The room was OK for our purposes but I was disappointed with the following: 1) The hotel had no guest bath towels available on the day of our arrival but pool towels were provided. How can a hotel run out of bath towels? 2) The wifi did not work on our floor. The manager told me that this is a problem throughout the hotel and that wifi is only stable at reception. It is misleading to claim you provide free wifi. 3) You were to provide a "free drink" on arrival. When asked about this, the manager replied that the bar where you have arrangements is some 45 minutes drive from the hotel. This was also misleading and arguably deceptive conduct. 4) You really do need to properly repair the bathroom (shower) wall in the kitchen. The previous repair is shoddy and there is quite an amount of mould. 5) The person who checked us in required the details from my Visa card. This was written on a Post-it note. This is a shoddy and dangerous practice. 6) An invoice was not available on departure. This is an unacceptable practice.

Very Good Position that this Hotel is Situated
