We stayed at the Pacific Hotel from Sept. 6-10, and found the staff to be friendly and helpful, the room clean and well-maintained, and loved the free wi-fi! It has a central location, right by the Esplanade, and, while we didn't eat at the restaurant there, its amenities seemed pretty good. Our room was on the 11th floor, and the... More

I have been to the Pacific Hotel Cairns 3 times this year. I love the views, location and friendly service from the staff. I was given an amazing room on the 11th floor, the views from your balcony are fantastic to watch the sunset. I love staying at this hotel due to its location, walking distance to everything including the... More

a good standard hotel in a great location, handy to night markets, restaurants and the lovely Cairns esplanade. Only downside is that it can be sometimes noisy from traffic outside. We stayed in a deluxe room, recently refurbished to a good standard, spotlessly clean and has extra space with a sitting area. The hotel offers free wifi, car parking and... More

Older hotel but recently refurbished. Located right in the esplanade with all amenities nearby, including Woolworths supermarket and BWS. The hotel has free wifi and coin self service washing machines. The history of the hotel and Cairns is throughout the hotel. A lovely touch given you can not find a lot about the history of this great city. Car Parking... More

This hotel is great value but the check in service is slow, there is no mini bar, and the lifts are noisy. On the positive, there is Free Wifi, you can park in the street, it is right on the main restaurant strip, and it is pretty comfortable. I was reading about the history of the place, and that's a...

The location of this hotel is fantastic, right in the city hub and central to everything, parking is minimal so get there early if driving, the reception staff were friendly enough . Room itself was basic and the bathroom cleanliness wasn't overly great with mould in the grout on the floor and the cleaner had left behind several dark hairs... More

The staff here went out of the way to make Australian guests feel welcome. The buffet breakfast ($19.95 per person) is top class and the evening "Bushfire" BBQ ($39.00 perperson) was simply awesome. BBQ beef, pork and lamb delivered to your table and carved from the skewer from rare to well done. Followed by chicken, salmon and a generous platter... More

We spent six nights at the Pacific as part of a tour group. We arrived from the US three days early and got a great room. Breakfast was typical but very substantial. The Pacific is located right on the Esplanade, which is where you want to be in Cairns. The tour booking agency located on the corner just outside the... More
