Service very thorough and friendly- upgraded to a suite on our second visit to the hotel. Rooms clean and well stocked with essentials. Bed comfortable. Courtesy van shuttled us to the city at no cost to pick up our hire car to start our holiday- great touch. Fantastic for the price and close to the airport which makes it very... More

Stayed here one night recently. Service at check in was good, The rooms large and well appointed. All clean and presentable. No issues at all as I arrived off a late flight and was just one night. If I was staying longer I would have wanted to be closer to the city, but for what I needed it was fine.

We have always been a little dubious about self rated hotels, but this one offered a good rate and the photos looked good so we gave it a try. Both of us found it very comfortable and reasonably quiet, considering most of Cairns is under the airport flight path. The only small complaint was the next door shower was quite... More

The Cairns Sheridan Hotel is a 4½ Star AAA rated hotel. We are not self-rated as you have assumed. When a hotel rates itself it is because it has not been awarded the star rating that they have wanted. So they can call themselves 4 star but they may have only achieved 3 or 3½ stars. Glad to hear you... More

Chose The Sheridan having read many reviews of various hotels on TA plus the price $130 a night per room, including full breakfast AND Wifi. Not far from the airport. The corridors were modern and clean - setting the tone for the room which was clean and well equipped, including a small balcony. Whilst the kettle wouldn't fit under the... More

Thank you for staying with us and your generous comments. I still think the walk along the Cairns Esplanade is one of the best walks you will do, (provided it is not raining). Also the local bus stops at the front of the hotel and is a 5 minute ride to town every 15 minutes. We also have our own... More

Stayed two nights and found the rooms well appointed, spacious and very functional. All staff displayed wonderful service, welcoming and the GM, Stuart Munro obviously leads a great team. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your most welcome review, and thanks for mentioning me. Most of the time I am in the background directing traffic or talking to guests in the restaurant and bar. Because it is hard to identify guests through their Tripadvisor sign on, I am not sure how I impressed you so much. If you are in Cairns again... More

We chose the Sheridan Hotel because of its closeness to the Airport as we were arriving late on our first day and then 10 days later when we were departing we had a pre 6am flight , so being handy to the Airport was a major factor at choosing this hotel. The Sheridan also has great deals on its personal... More

We are also embarking on a bathroom renovation program which will see all our bathroom fittings replaced. This should be finished in the next few months. We are continuously looking for ways to improve our... More

I found the staff always helpful and friendly. The rooms were well kept, clean, and comfortable. The hotel was undergoing some construction work around the pool area and there was a little bit of noise. This was only ever through the day and was more than acceptable. You can see that the owner has plans in place for the hotel.... More

Excellent Hotel and good value for money. Large room very well appointed.with balcony. About 2.3KM outside the city centre. A nice 35min walk along the waterfront boardwalk. Dunwoodys is a great casual low priced hotel/restaurant next door.

The staff are great, the rooms are well kept and it's a half hour walk to the town centre or a $10 taxi. Unfortunately it's quite noisy but it's nothing than can be sorted easily. Every time someone in a nearby room used the bathroom it was so loud that I'd wake up and there was some sort of renovation... More

Thank you for your review and I apologise for the current upgrading of our outside pool and deck area. This new, covered deck area should be completed shortly and will give our guests an excellent area to unwind and relax with a cold beer in the balmy tropical nights. More
