We stayed at this hotel in January 2016, we booked it months ago. We opted for a cheaper hotel but with an upgraded room. The room was a suite with twin balconies, very very very clean and modern. Hotel location was brilliant, directly on front and only five minutes from all the bars and restaurants. The staff were helpful, knowledgeable... More

This hotel is located right across the street from the Esplanade boardwalk. This makes for a nice short walk to the marina and night life. There is parking on site, but I do imagine that they will run out of spaces on busy nights. I expect that to be OK, since there are some parking spots on the city street... More

We were looking for 4 nights to stay in Cairns, but a hotel to be used just as a base, nothing fancy, no frills required. We found this on tripadvisor and for the nightly rate you get great value. We had a lounge as well as a bedroom which we were not expecting with lovely views of the water. The... More

The room is clean and tidy. We stayed in suite room with ocean view. It was very nice and you can actually see the view. The only drawback is after taking shower, water splash out from the shower area. The room is provided some kitchen equipments such as plates, cluttering, microwave and kettle. It's good for person who want to... More

Although one of thecheapest room rates in the whole of my east coast trip, there's nothing cheap about this hotel! Location is very good! It is a short and very lovely walk on the Esplanade to a range of good eating places, whether it's the night market or restaurants . I find, increasingly, that you can sense when you're in... More

Our family of four stayed at the Cairns Plaza over the New Year period. It was a pleasant surprise to find such a spacious and comfortable room (king bed & two singles), complete with balcony, kitchenette (microwave, mini fridge & kettle), ironing facilities & decent cupboard space. Our room was very clean, as was the bathroom. WiFi is free so... More

We stayed for just one night so that we could get on a reef trip early the next morning. It was a comfortable hotel with a nice new clean bathroom and crisp linen. For such an affordable hotel, I was impressed. If you factor in the free parking and good convenient location, all round it's a good bet.

We stayed at a studio for four nights. It was very cozy, spacious, quiet and clean. 家族4人で4泊しました。街の中心部からは少し遠いですが、7歳の娘でも歩ける距離です。お手頃なお値段ですが、快適に過ごせました。冷蔵庫とレンジ、小さなシンクもあったので、朝食は前日にcolesやWoolworthsで買った食材でサンドイッチなど作って楽しく食べました。

Reception staff are lovely and very helpful. Studio room was amazing / clean and perfect for family to stay in. Hotel pool was nice and having a laundry downstairs... More
