We booked a room for 2 adults and 1 child through WEBJET and upon arrival were charged an extra $30.00 per night for our Grand-Daughter. This was a nasty surprise so be warned. Otherwise the room and units were old but serviced everyday. They are across the road from Raintrees Shopping Centre where there is Supermarkets, food outlets, and more... More

Please read this review. I am not a high-maintenance guest who expects a whole lot from a hotel. I don't write a lot of negative hotel reviews. Please believe what many other reviewers have said about this place. It really tainted by experience in Cairns, and it is in your best interest to spend ten or twenty more dollars for... More

Out of town but mini bus makes regular trips to central Cairns for a fee. Bed very soft, worn and uncomfortable. The hotel run down, rusty, needs a complete revamp and paint, large pool over chlorinated but smaller salt wAter poor very pleasant. Breakfast was appalling.....don't bother!

We made the mistake of booking the Palm Royale before reading TripAdvisor. I'm glad we did! The positives far outweigh the negatives. The hotel is a little jaded but it has a sort of colonial charm. The pools are great. Large and surrounded by palms and exotic plants. There is a cafe for breakfast at 15 dollars each

This place is nice and quiet. They have 2 swimming pools that are accessible to guests. I enjoyed swimming here at night to unwind after a long day. However the internet is limited because you can only log in for 1 hour each time. But hopefully you will spend most time outdoors so this shouldnt be an issue.

I am currently staying at the Palm Royale in Cairns and had to write a review because I think it is a tremendous hotel for anyone on a budget. The hotel staff and especially the front desk are top notch! I have had better service here than many 3 & 4 star resorts I have stayed at around the Globe.... More

We visited this hotel in November 2015 and had a terrible experience. On the day of check out, house keeping staff entered our room with his key, this is HIGHLY UNACCEPTABLE as privacy of guests is concerned. We complained the management about this incident, and they took it very casually stating that, it was their fault and not of housekeeping... More

bed was spacious, things in the room were a bit outdated but at great price. The down side was a loud and not so efficient air-con and the room was located close to the main road, hence, loud even at night The pools are amazing and well worth the stay there.
