We stayed at the pacific in July 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable with everything you need for a short or long stay. Views are great. It is in a central location with walking distance to the marina for your reef adventure. With a tour agent at the base of the Hotel, Fred will look after... More

We had a nine night stay at the Pacific Hotel Cairns during early July. Our room was on the ninth floor and had a beautiful view out over Cairns Harbour a block away. The motel is centrally located and within easy walking distance of all Cairns CBD attractions. Being on a busy corner meant that there was some traffic noise,... More

I found the hotel very clean and quiet. Rooms were tidy and CLEAN as was the bathroom. Balconies were quite tiny however big enough to sit on. Our room overlooked the Casino and was quite scenic. Bed was a King and comfortable and pillows looked clean. It was walking distance to restaurants and function centres and faced the esplanade at... More

This hotel was quite good value - we purchased our night here from wotif.com, and our expectations were more than met. The room was very clean and tidy, although despite requesting two single beds we were given a king. We contacted reception who immediately gave us another room. Location was close to the ferry terminal, and just a couple of... More

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights on our honeymoon. Such a great decision! The hotel is in the perfect location. It is by the reef fleet terminal (for all the days you go out to the great barrier reef) and it is on the esplanade which makes for easy access to nice long walks. We walked... More

Everything to say about this hotel is positive. The huge corner room we had was excellent, with it's balcony overlooking the harbour, hotel swimming pool and park. The location is ideal for access to all amenities. The public infinity pool is a couple of minutes walk and is amazing, a must do. Close to shops, restaurants and harbour. Useful inexpensive... More

I stayed at the hotel in the first half of April as participants of a Scandinavian group touring Australia and New Zealand. The hotel is OK situated in the city, short walk to the main streets and also short walk to the seaside and the great public pool area with a lot of different restaurants. The hotel had problems with... More

Nice clean basic hotel room. Kettle, Fridge and Free To Air TV. Ideally located next to Casino, Marina and Boardwalk. Short walk to centre of town. Breakfast was quite substantial with a good selection.
