This is a lovely hotel, very convenient, clean, well appointed with friendly, helpful staff, comfortable rooms and lovely views and pool....but, the wifi is almost non- existent. In spite of several trips to the front desk and them to us, we were not successful in logging on- and as travelers away for months at a time, this amenity is very... More

We stayed here for 4 nights whilst visiting and touring the area. This hotel is a great base! A minutes walk and you are at the harbour, a minutes walk and you are in the town, a minutes walk and you are on the esplanade/lagoon. The staff were very attentive from the moment we arrived. Our room was a corner... More

I stayed at the hotel only for one night, but I would recommend it to everyone. The room was very clean and the view from the balcony simply amazing. The hotel location is perfect, absolutely close to every thing in the Centre. Staff was very helpful and funny especially Rodrigo, the duty manager at the reception. I wish I can... More

hotel has a family owned feel rather than a chain. nice clean rooms with a good Breakfast Buffet (hotel guest pay $20 not the advertised $30) and Brazilian style dinner buffet. The location is perfect, 2 blocks from pier for great barrier charters, at the start of 3 blocks of restaurants, multiple coffee shops(check out Dolce & Café expresso bar),... More

This hotel was the first of the International hotels in Cairns when it was built back in the 80's. It has slipped a bit but it is still very good for the price. Rooms are well appointed and generous in size. Beds are comfy and good air-con. There is complimentary Wi-Fi and tea & coffee, the bar fridge is not... More

Thank you for your review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the on arrival gesture of a free upgrade from the standard room you booked to one of our beautifully located Deluxe rooms. There is a worldwide trend underway where hotels are withdrawing high priced items from mini-bars in favour of reasonably priced beverage and snack packs. In fact... More

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.

Thank you for your review. May I take this opportunity to apologize to you for the inconvenience you experienced as I believe you stayed with us at a time when a significant power blackout affected most of Cairns. I was at the hotel at the time and I personally apologized to guests who were rightly angry and impatient. May I... More
