Stayed there for 5 days in September. It is just 5 min walk from the piers where you have all the boat tours. Rooms are a decent size. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. There is a woolworths nearby. The train station is a 10 min walk from where you can board the trains to the kundara. The hotel is... More

We were in Cairns to dive the Great Barrier Reef, but there are probably nicer places to stay (Palm Cove looks great). There are a lot of no frills bars, with the requisite backpacker clientele, and the restaurants seemed to close very early and were not of very good quality (I fear Sydney spoils us). However, if you are staying... More

We stayed at the Pacific Hotel from Sept. 6-10, and found the staff to be friendly and helpful, the room clean and well-maintained, and loved the free wi-fi! It has a central location, right by the Esplanade, and, while we didn't eat at the restaurant there, its amenities seemed pretty good. Our room was on the 11th floor, and the... More

I have been to the Pacific Hotel Cairns 3 times this year. I love the views, location and friendly service from the staff. I was given an amazing room on the 11th floor, the views from your balcony are fantastic to watch the sunset. I love staying at this hotel due to its location, walking distance to everything including the... More

a good standard hotel in a great location, handy to night markets, restaurants and the lovely Cairns esplanade. Only downside is that it can be sometimes noisy from traffic outside. We stayed in a deluxe room, recently refurbished to a good standard, spotlessly clean and has extra space with a sitting area. The hotel offers free wifi, car parking and... More

Older hotel but recently refurbished. Located right in the esplanade with all amenities nearby, including Woolworths supermarket and BWS. The hotel has free wifi and coin self service washing machines. The history of the hotel and Cairns is throughout the hotel. A lovely touch given you can not find a lot about the history of this great city. Car Parking... More
