This hotel is in a great location right on the Cairns Esplanade. Our room was on the 11th floor so we had a tremendous view of the foreshore and out to the ocean. Our king size bed was sooo comfortable and the room spacious and clean. We even had a balcony to sit out on and watch the sunset -... More

We recently stayed in Cairns for 10 nights and really enjoyed ourselves at this hotel. The location is excellent as the hotel is situated at the busy end of the Esplanade. You are less than five minutes walk from the reef terminal, lagoon, night markets and casino. There are plenty of places to eat nearby at differing levels of cost.... More

When you pull up outside this hotel you realise that your expectations won't be met. Then you walk into the foyer and your spirits rise as your hopes have life breathed back into them. Once you get to the hallway to your room and then your room you know that you've made a mistake. The rooms are old, noisy, poorly... More

The room was clean, with a balcony and a comfortable bed. Older hotel in a great location. We could walk 5 mins to the reef terminal for all our boating excursions and down the block for lots of coffee shops and restaurants. I wanted to take towels on a trip to the Great Barrier Reef and they sent me to... More

I recently stayed at the Pacific Hotel for a business conference. The hotel is very comfortable, although slightly outdated but it's main appeal is it's great location. Right near the esplanade and surrounded by trendy bars a restaurants not to mention directly opposite the casino. I would recommend staying at the Pacific Hotel Cairns.

We got a good deal with Hotels.com and selected a room higher up the price range. So glad we did as the room we got was on the 8th floor over looking the inlet. We also had a view of the entire esplanade right back around to the city. Fantastic and big, well it had to be, the bed was... More

Clean and comfortable rooms, large and airy with fantastic views. As hotel is older the noise from the Esplanade could be intrusive and the wind rattled the balustrade. The bathroom was large but had a small bath/shower that sent water all over the floor. Bed was very comfortable and view was fantastic

Excellent hotel, good staff and service, very conveniently located and recently done up. Breakfast and the main restaurant was absolutely delicious. The Brazilian style food at dinner was amazing. Housekeeping staff very helpful with my unusual requests.

We booked and paid for three nights accommodation through Webjet. On arrival we were forced to pay an additional $70 per night ($210 in total) for a single bed for our ten year old to be provided in the room. The staff at reception made it clear to us "that it was not their problem" despite our Webjet booking clearly... More
