Hotel staff was extremely hospitable. Leanne went out her way to book tours for us last minute! We couldn't have asked for anything better, because all the tours were closed for booking the days we were there. Leanne called all the places and made alternate arrangements so we could be adjusted in the visitors list at the 11th hour! Hotel... More

This hotel was fantastic. A one night stopover in cairns and I couldn't have asked for a better place. The room was large with a round table and a desk and 2 comfortable chairs. The bed was very comfy. The restaurant was intimate and the food was outstanding. Not many people staying which made it very pleasant. Lots of parking... More

Thank you so much for your kind review. January is a particularly quiet time of year in Cairns and many of our staff get the opportunity to have some time off and refresh the batteries before the busy times ahead in February and beyond. More

We always use this hotel in Cairns as it is handy to the airport. We were upgraded on this stay to a large front room with water views. There is free parking in the grounds with a bistro next door for meals. The room was clean, bright and quiet. The front desk staff are always friendly. It provided value for... More

I had booked my stay on the basis of the hotel's relatively high rating, but was still a bit apprehensive about service because these guys have a habit of disputing unflattering reviews. Happy to say I faced no problems, and my stay was quite comfortable. The hotel is close to the airport, but a little distant from the city centre/Esplanade.... More

What a delightful facility and wonderful staff. We arrived for a 4-night stay in Cairns and were warmly welcomed by the front desk staff. Since arriving in Australia, we've had some unsatisfactory hotel experiences because the property is advertised as far better than the reality, but that is NOT the case at Cairns Sheridan. Our deluxe king room was beautiful.... More

This place is a bit of a hike from the main part of Cairns. It is a fairly standard hotel, a bit of a stretch to call itself "affordable luxury". Have really taken some artistic license with the pool photo on their website - not inviting at all! It's reasonable value.

Thanks for your review. Your comments are greatly appreciated. Isn't it funny how some people love the intimacy of our pool and others just look at it and think it is small. It is refreshing to know that the people who actually use the pool do appreciate the refreshing and clean experience. Next time you are in a big resort... More
