The location is fantastic, the staff are very nice. But, the first room we were in was facing the road, and as the windows were not double glazed (sound proofed), it was really noisy. Also our fridge didn't work (my husband advised them of this when he asked to change rooms), which we only realised when all the breakfast food... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Pacific Hotel in Cairns. It was my first time at the hotel and will not be the last. The hotel is clean and modern and the location can not be beat. As other reviewers have said, practically everything you could want is close by. The marina, where the excursions to the... More

A favourite spot that doesn't disappoint. View from the 9th floor room over the marina was perfect. Don't let the size of the hotel fool you, you can tell this is a family run hotel. You are always made to feel welcome. Bushfire Flame Grill is a great spot to eat and a real experience. Being located just across the... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in early February during our tour of eastern Australia. As other reviewers have pointed out it has a great central location that is just a short walk to the docks, shops, restaurants and casino. The room we had was clean and large enough for our requirements with a nice view of the... More

Free internoet on the PCs downstairs and the staff were really friendly and helpful as we had plenty of questions having never visitied before. The room itself was a corner room and... More

We stayed here a year ago. It was in a good location within walking distance to the docks which worked out nice since we were there for diving. Make sure you get the breakfast! It was one of the best I have ever had.

I stayed here from 17. to 20. February 2014. Located on The Esplanade, just a few steps from the Marina and the lagoon pool, it was perfect for me. The hotel has a polite and friendly staff. The room, overlooking Cairns city, was nice and clean. I will recommend this hotel for budget travellers.

10th floor room with great view, especially spectacular around dusk as the fruit bats go out for the night, 2 minutes walk to the harbour side and the esplanade. Also good washing facilities for those who don't want to pay the usual exorbitant prices for hotel laundry.
