Location 5 minute drive to town, set on the water. Beautiful Dec ore in the rooms. Ice machine in the carpark for guest use. We found this great for our day trips. Each room has a balcony. Highly recommend value for money

Big impersonal chain hotel a long walk from restaurants and the night markets, but it runs a shuttle on the hour, has a pool, is clean, and has an adequate mass breakfast. Our room was on a high floor and had an unobstructed view of the Coral Sea, Trinity Bay.

The rooms are getting a bit tired but... More

Dear gilandbrenda, Thank you for your Trip Advisor review. Awesome to hear you were able to utilise the shuttle service into town. Although the walk into town along the Cairns Esplanade is magic, sometimes one just doesn’t want to walk. We hope to see you again in the near future once our pool is back in use. Next time try...

We spent a long weekend at the Mercure Cairns Harbourside hotel and were thoroughly satisfied. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful, as well as accommodating. When making our reservation, we opted to include the full breakfast, for a nominal additional fee, and it was well worth it. The food was very good and there was an abundance of... More

Could not fault the staff with their gracious assistance and local knowledge. Car park facilities were great and made things much easier, with all of our luggage and elevators were very close. The laundry facilities were great also. Our room was beautiful and so were the uninterrupted views of the ocean. Best location, close to everything, we walked to the... More
