The rooms were decent. Clean bathrooms and linens. Room service was very minimal. Breakfast spread wasn't too great. Location was decent very close to the esplanade. Ask for rooms facing the swimming pool. The ac controls didn't have many options so controlling the temperature was quite difficult.

This hotel is in the perfect spot. It's a minute to the marina, restaurants, casino, bars, and lagoon. Beautiful views from the room. Clean and our room was ready early in the morning when we arrived. Great value and comfortable beds. Balcony and pool too

My partner and I stayed here for 4 days in late December over New Years. It's a great location, the rooms are clean and an ample size, the bed was very comfortable and we were overall very happy with our stay. We had a room on the 11th floor, facing the fire works for New Years Eve which was great.... More

I live in Cairns and I always book a Hotel in Cairns for NYE so booked into Pacific Hotel Cairns which wasn't far from the Casino but when I arrived I was told that the room was flooded which I didn't believe I think they overbooked....they sent me down to the Rydges on the Esp. which was too far away...

Stayed at this so called 4 star hotel from 28-30th Dec (2 rooms) with family including a 2 yr kid. My basic problem with this hotel was blatantly rude, unhelpful, inconsiderate and to some extent I don't care attitude/behaviour of one of their restaurant managers Rebecca (Bec) & staff around her. This has to be the 1st hotel in the... More

As per the title the hotel rooms could do with a refurb in line with the lobby which is quite impressive. The bed was comfortable but the bathroom let the room down a bit. The room was clean though so no complaints there. The wifi was ok, not the fastest I've experienced on my trip. The location was brilliant though,... More

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
