Stayed here in three rooms on a family vacation. Was a perfect location for exploring, but average in every other way. Looking and feeling a bit tired, but clean. The views from high floors are superb, but a lot of building Boise and old beds. The WIFI, like most of Cairns, is beyond useless. We'd probably look elsewhere next time... More

There's nothing very exciting to say about this hotel, other than it does what it should do. Rooms aren't enormous, but perfectly adequate, and reasonably quiet. Everything was clean and worked properly; staff were friendly and helpful. The location is great - central and near the shops. It's not the trendiest hotel in the world ... but decent.

Used Hotel as a business base for the central city. Excellent location. The high floor corner suites are worth the money. Very roomy. Yes the Hotel has been around for 30 plus years but clean and very functional. Park over the road is a hassle if a concert on but that effects all the other hotels near by as well.... More

I stayed at Pacific Hotel in Carins for three nights. To be honest, I was pretty underwhelmed by the hotel. The lobby and pool area is modern and well maintained. However, the rooms feel like they need a refurb. They are clean but stuck in the 80s. The walls were paper thin and I was woken up several times by... More

We stayed at the Pacific hotel in Cairns for 2 nights. Of the 3 hotels we stayed at in Cairns we definitely liked this one the least. We requested a quiet room because we are both light sleepers. We were put on the side facing the busiest street. To make matters worse, the windows do not seal well at all... More

This hotel is nice but proved inconsistent. We had 2 nights before a live-aboard dive trip, and 2 nights after. We found the first stay quite wanting, but the second was perfectly fine. On our first couple nights there was a noisy concert going on in the adjacent park and you could hear every word of the music until it... More

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
