"perfect location close to the CBD but very quiet"
The Manager, Brett was extremely accommodating with a couple of requests I had made to ensure my stay was comfortable. Staff provided assistance in getting suitcases up the stairs and Brett met us downstairs when we left so we just had to pull out of the carpark and leave. Nice and easy.
The unit was perfect for myself and my daughter, a nice size and very well equipped. It was also very well priced. It was extremely clean and the beds were very comfortable. The location was perfect for us, very close to everything in town so we could walk everywhere we needed to. Considering the location, the unit was amazingly quiet, we didn't hear any noise from any other tenants or from the road. Our unit overlooked the barbecue area and when people used this area, they were very considerate. We have stayed in many hotels/motels both in Australia and overseas and this experience is one of the best we have had. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again next time I am in Cairns.
Staying at Il Palazzo was a pleasure from start to finish. From Donovan's greeting, personal escort to the room, to touring advice and making actual bookings (no commission!), we loved every minute. The esplanade and public lagoon/pool are a very short walk awStaying at Il Palazzo was a pleasure from start to finish. From Donovan's warm greeting, personal escort to the room, to touring advice and making actual bookings (no commission!), we loved every minute. Cairn's famous esplanade and public lagoon/pool are a very short walk away. Il Palazzo's heated pool with lovely deck area was a delightful way to relax and unwind. We greatly appreciated the in-room washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, etc. We did not take advantage of the kitchen facilities, other than the refirgerator. The room was clean and comfortable in every way. We would definitely stay at Il Palazzo again, and we recommend it unreservedly.
Regarding tours, you will notice several tour agencies in downtown Cairns that use the international standard letter I to indicate "Information". This is in fact somewhat misleading. These are not government tourist information centres but private businesses that charge a commission for any bookings you might make. I am not at all against private enterprise, but you can, of course, make your own bookings directly. Snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef trip was a life highlight.
