We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and had a side room overlooking the street and the Casino across the road. We were treated to the nightly bat spectacle at dusk which is a sight to see. The hotel is situated centrally so easy to reach the tourist sights, shops, bars and restaurants. We could walk to the quay... More

I stayed at the Pacific Hotel Cairns for 1 night and found it to be an ok place. The location is just around the corner from the Cairns esplanade and Lagoon area meaning there is plenty of options for cafes, restaurants and bars. The casino and marina are close too. The front entrance is large and spacious but has a... More

Stayed the night in town for valentines day, what a great room and location. Fantastic views and service. The Bush Fire Grill restaurant has some of the best lamb I've eaten in years. I will book back in again in the future.

The Pacific Hotel is centrally located in Cairns, with just about everything in walking distance. The Esplanade is across the street, the casino and Reef Terminal a block away, restaurants, bars and shopping all right there. The lobby is light and airy, the rooms are updated and comfortable with plenty of room, as is the bathroom. There is a balcony... More

The Pacific Hotel is ideally located near the harbor in Cairns. If you can get a corner room you will have 2 walls of windows and balcony to view the harbor and sunrises and sunsets. The walk to the harbor for a trip to the reef is just across the park In front of the hotel. If you walk in... More

We stayed at the Pacific cairns Early feb. Very easy to get to most places in city. Just across the road from Casino and a very short walk to the restaurants. Free car parking, and the price for the room was by far the cheapest in the city. Rooms spacious, well appointed, I would rate it 3.5 to 4 star.... More

Stayed overnight last minute choice and got complimentary upgrade to better room - clean big and cool. Very good location on esplanade - quick stroll to restaurants without being stuck in thick of it all. Big comfortable bed and clean carpet underfoot. Definitely recommend for short or long stays.

We went here as advised on trip advisor and were not disappointed. On arrival we were upgraded at no extra charge and had a beautiful room facing the ocean and also facing down the esplanade. The room was clean and tidy, and location was fantastic. Would stay there again!!
