A great resort with only one thing missing, staff that have been given trainning and information about where they work. There was no info at the front desk ,in the room, or any other place on the island. i.e. That the stoves have been turned off in all the rooms and an electition has to be called to turn it back on. What number you have to call to get the front desk. Call costs?. Check out times. ect
Relaxing, quality staff, felt like you had been overseas when your just off the coast. Opportunity to take in some great views with the walk to the lighthouse. Could also sit around the pool and drink cocktails. Place to holiday that suits everyone kids to the elderly. Fantastic!!! Only problem was that it was confusing about how and what to book in the way of a ferry to get out to the island something i felt should have been part of booking the room ie your people. I am a local imagine what it would be like if your from overseas.Did not manage to get any thing organised until 5.00 pm friday the day before we left after, lots of phone calls visits to the fleet terminal etc.
Fitzroy Island was stunning. Staff were very friendly. Snorkeling was awesome. We stayed in a two bedroom beach cabin and the view was amazing! So was the pool. They have a General store which I thought the prices were very good, pies, wraps for very reasonal prices. Cinema upstairs which was great for the kids, board game, table tennis table free, kids loved it! Very relaxing! none
Excellent place to get away to relax and / or experience the wonders of the Far North including the reef, beaches and luxury of the Resort.
Good location, close to shops and esplanade area. The room was nicely refurbished, but the bathroom was still old (but clean and tidy). The pool area looked good but it was raining so we didn't get to use it. Free wifi in the lobby and free internet in the room (with a cable from reception) but in-room was not working at th time so we went to the lobby. Slight mixup with payment (i thought booking.com was taking payment, but apparently they didn't and the hotel wanted the payment). Also, we arrived early and they kindly looked after our bags and said they would call our mobile when the room was ready, but they didn't call us.
It was just ok. It was kind of expensive for money value. Holiday Inn located next block was cheaper and nicer.
Breakfast good and service also good, friendly staff Bathroom filthy, and ants everywhere. After mentioning it to the cleaning staff and at the reception desk nothing changed, the bathroom wasnt taken care of at all.
Relaxing, service was good, friendly and happy staff Breakfast. There was not a lot of service or care, it appeared that no one was in charge and everything was self service. No cups, spoons or side plates.
Appearance and layout of the hotel reception areas. Room well designed and comftable Layout of the buffet area of resturant could be better designed, confusing and cramped
for us it was very central to everywhere we went.
very nice room and hotel, in a quiet place but very close of town center. Very good hotel to spend 1 or 2 days in cairns to prepare the way to the north queensland
Central location, a walk to everywhere, great pool for kids , free internet really cool. Good breakfasts. Room was musty on arrival, but we were offered to change.
The only good words i can say about this hotel is that it was close to the Reef Terminal where we caught our ferry out to the reef the following morning. On arrival i asked if they still did cheap movie tickets for locals (people who live in Cairns) and they said yes so i paid $20 cash for 2 tickets so i could take my daughter, visiting from interstate, to the movies that afternoon, we didnt go but on checking out this hotel said i never paid and wanted another $20 for them which i refused to pay, in the end i gave them the movie tickets back. I could tell that they didnt believe that i had already paid, they asked me for a receipt for the tickets but i was never given one. So seeing as i live in Cairns and i have a lot of interstate visitors the Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort, will never see me back there, any of my local friends there and definately none of my interstate visitors staying ther
I loved the bed, very comfortable. I also liked the private balcony over the pool lagoon. The Internet was very slow and the scrollers on the mouse didn't work.
Very friendly staff.Lovely beach and reef. Too little 'private' hotel space: most of island and some hotel facilities 'taken over' by day visitors.
I stayed at the resorts and never wanted to leave. The facilities are nice. Mosquetoes
We had to make arrangements for a late arrival after closure of the reception. Everything worked out perfectly, couldn't have been better!
Clean and quiet. Not close to downtown but a quick bus ride or rent a car makes up for the location.
The staff was very helpful. Big cockroaches in the room. Maybe because Cairns has a tropical weather, but the insects were really disgusting.
Good service and reasonable rates.
Receptionist extremely helpful. Location only suitable if you have a car. Breakfast excellent and included in price unlike most hotels in Australia Difficult to find way to laundry room at night as signage confusing. Reception not open on departure.
First. The location of this Hotel sucks. The ads say it is 7 mins away from the city center. not true! Unless you have your own car-do not stay here. Cabs are expensive $20 one way to city. Takes 15-20 mins to reach. It is far away from the airport as well. second. They charged the tariff at a very high exchange rate almost over 0.90 (aud to usd) whereas all other hotels in Australia charged us at the rate of 0.86. Therefore, even though this hotel was "cheap" it ended up not being so. third. The reception is not 24 hrs. On Sundays it closes at 2pm so you can't even check-in. There is a bell to call someone after hours but no one really ever comes. Once we got locked out of our room at night and rang the bell. Security showed up after 2 hrs Fourth There is no lift/elevator. We had to carry heavy luggage up 2 flights of stairs and even though reception said they would send help they didn't-at the time of check in and check out. fifth. Filled with insects mosquitoes and what not. Cheap rates mean cheap stuff but this was ridiculous. fifth: Even after complaining no one seemed to accept their mistake about anything. sixth: There was no phone in the room and no internet. Furniture was old and sheets were dirty. Poor hygiene.SEVENTH: Breakfast was supposed to be included but we had to shell out $5.50 extra to upgrade to full from continental-which was only tea and toast. What a total rip off! I do not recommend this place. There are plenty of much nicer hotels near the city center.
Location good Room good Parking good Breakfast & service great No restaurant poor Roon service Could be improved
all good, very friendly staff. na
very quiet area if thats what you are looking for in the middle of nowhere. car is essential. no restaurants or bars nearby. arrived late eve could not get anything to eat
Friendly staff with comfortable rooms. Amenities were clean and tidy. Restaurant around the pool a bonus. Continental breakfast included in the room price a good bonus.
