Great hotel ”

We stayed for two nights after returning from Cairns. Easy taxi from airport, friendly staff, the room was clean and well appointed. We were traveling with two kids, the four of us were comfortable in the two-bed room with an amazing view of the Royal Botanical Gardens and harbor. The location could be better for catching a ferry, opera house, museums, etc. The night before we left the front desk arranged our taxi in advance and it was waiting for us the next morning. Wonderful experience
