Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Studio room was modern, tidy and very clean. Had both aircon and a fan over the bed which was great. Comfy bed but hard plastic chairs to sit on if watching TV or reading. No instructions were provided for emergency fire exit, accessing wifi, how to remove rubbish from room or any other welcome guide. I am not sure if this was just missing or not somethng they provide. Stayed 7 nights but room was not serviced during this time. I did locate the lovely cleaning ladies on the floor and acquired fresh towels that way.
The free car parking was handy and mall opposite was great for supermaket access and general shopping.
It is a good place to stay if you just need a place at night and are self sufficient.

Room Tip: Car parks are narrow so would be difficult to park if your vehicle is wide.

Very convenient location and free parking available. Staff were helpful except the Manager was not the courteous person. He would do better if he is given some training. Not sure i call this a hotel as there were no servicing of rooms i found the room has not been cleaned properly especially under beds.

We stayed in two separate rooms at this hotel for 3 nights as a treat at the end of our holiday. Although the studio rooms were clean and new several aspects spoilt our stay. The price we paid did not equate with what we got.
There was no servicing- we were expected to use our towels for 7 days before getting a change - or pay extra. Ditto beverages, toilet paper etc. I have never been to an accommodation property before where you have to supply your own toilet paper.
All the water was turned off with out notice at a time when people would be showering to go out. No toilet flushing , no water for hot drinks. We were late for our dinner reservation as a result
In one of our rooms the key card would not work when we returned from dinner. . It took us an hour and a half to get an employee to come to our floor to assist. ( The reception is unattended after 7pm.The after hours number was not answered. We could not get an outside line. We had to go outside to a call box in order to place a call to cellphone number we found at reception ) The person who came was surly and uncooperative. Couldn't fix it and went away to look into it and did not return. No offer of an alternative room or anything. A neighbouring guest climbed into the room via the 7th floor balcony and opened the main door to give us access to the unit.
This is one place we would not stay at again. It was the bad experience in an otherwise lovely holiday

We stayed in CCP Hotel for two nights as I had a 'procedure' booked for the Cairns Day Hospital (and I live an hour's drive away) and it seemed convenient to be able to go up a few floors to a room after surgery rather than travel elsewhere. We were amazed at the quality of accommodation - especially after having read some of the misguided comments on this site. the room was exceptionally comfortable and spacious with an excellent outlook over the city. Security was amazing and we had no second thoughts about parking our car in the designated parking areas. Reception was exceptionally efficient and helpful.

The room was spotlessly clean, the wi-fi system was very fast (by Australian standards) and everything in the room worked beautifully. I will have (and have already done so) have absolutely no problems in recommending this hotel to any friends who might need to have a short stay in Cairns, in exactly the same way that this establishment will now become our overnight accommodation first preference for future occasions when we stay in cairns.

There was absolutely NO noise from other residents - even though the hotel was virtually 'sold out'.

It's a ten minute (maximum) walk to the Esplanade and all the international restaurants there, as well as Rusty's markets and the Night Market area. A great location.

Don’t know where to start. Day 8 of 10, no cleaning or fresh linen offered or undertaken. Carpets smelly and old. Wifi is barely usable (Just give up) Cannot block any light out of the bedroom day or night (city lights stream into the 9th floor?). Kitchen is sparsely equipped and there is no Aircon in the bedroom. Everything is tired(particularly
me, due to lack of sleep). Just dreadful. Have complained to reception, they will let Manager know. (That should fix things??).

The appartment was not clean. They did vacum it after we asked. Curtains were dirty, missing and coming off hooks and window catches missing. The bath had all stains on it. The couch had a cover on it which needed washing and was uncomfortable. The manager needs some people skills.

Worn down. Loud 24/7 disturbing party than manager couldn’t turn down. Drugs and smoke on the whole floor. Just a thin door separating the two apartment units. No AC in bedroom. Staff would help me changing room outside office hours. Bad service. Not possible to blackout the bedroom with curtains. Very light room for sleeping.

Awesome view from our apartment. We really enjoyed the spa pool and underground parking. We had a huge balcony and it was great to sit out and enjoy the fresh air and view. There was plenty of storage for our suitcases.

It was the worst holiday I have ever had. The management at this place is dreadful. The first night we found ourselves locked out of our apartment having to ring management. We were faced with the most arrogant rude man (The Manager) I believe I have ever met. After it become very apparent that he not a clue what he was doing to gain entry I asked him how long was it going to take, I copped a mouthful of abuse and told to be patient. After waiting and waiting and waiting and a door half disassembled at 1am I thought to ask the manager one last time how long he would be as we were getting very tired. I was then threatened that he would call the police as he was an ex-policeman (yeah right). Finally we were moved to another apartment as he basically destroyed the door to gain entry. We lasted only 2 more nights and moved to another hotel as we were made to feel most unwelcome. There are plenty of great hotels in Cairns and this one is to be avoided unless they get new management

The hotel is about 5 blocks from The Esplanade on a good level footpath. There was a ramp from the road to the entrance. There is a lift of course and there may be specific disabled rooms. The room I was in had a blocked shower and water flowed out on to the floor so you would have to be careful. I reported this matter on my evaluation.
