The rooms at the Reef Hotel are consistently comfortable, clean and for the most part quiet. Service from the front desk (in what turned out to be rather trying circumstances for them...nothing that they could have helped) was excellent as ever. My only remaining gripe (now that the issue with the noisy party bus on Abbott St seems to have... More

We have just returned from a wonderful two night stay. Excellent super friendly service. Spacious and stylishly decorated rooms. Everything (almost) that one would need. The lack of free wifi is odd in a hotel of this standard. We were locals so could get by with the deathly slow 3G but our international friends found it frustrating. Breakfast at the... More

Cairns is a relatively small town. The area with restaurants, coffee shops, etc. is no more than four blocks. Pulmann Hotel is really very close to everything. The Pier with all the cruises is just across the street. The tourist office where you can choose the cruise to visit the barrier reef is also close by (choose carefully, there are... More

WE did not know, but the hotel was diagonally across from the cruise ship port where we docked . It could not have been more convenient. Our corner junior suite had a lovely view and was exceptionally attractive It appeared to be freshly painted...all in white with many louvered windows. and a huge terrace. The bathroom was very well planned.... More

Great location with friendly, efficient staff. Only downside was the COLD spa in the middle of winter. Very good location to wharfs for water based activities. Many good restaurants within easy walking distance.

Stayed here 4 times. Finally wrote it up. Every stay has been near perfect. It's beautifully maintained. From when you enter the lobby (which smells amazing) to working out in the small (but well thought out gym), I found this one of those old style hotels which feel like home. Room service pretty good, had some surprisingly good meals, but... More

Good hotel, convenient location, clean & spacious room. My disappointments are the size of the spa and also we paid for a sea-view room but we could not see any water because view is blocked by large trees from room 519.

Wonderful service, very clean and well maintained facilities with helpful staff. Staying here allowed us to access the esplanade easily and with valet service it was an easy matter to get our car to go anywhere.

4 of us stayed here for 2 nights in July. We drove from airlie beach late the night before and arrived at the hotel at 6am. I went into the hotel just chancing my arm to see if we could pay extra and check in early. The woman at the front desk was more then helpful. She changed both of... More

Was treated well by all staff. Room was of the quality I was expecting. Location is great for visiting Cairns. Under cover car parking very good. Only disappointment was the lack of a dress standard in the Casino which cheapened the visit.
