We spent 2 nights at Cairns Plaza Hotel. It is in a great location on the Esplanade (short walk to restaurants and marina), and a good base to explore the Cairns area and do reef tours. The bedroom and ensuite were newly renovated, very clean and neat. You can tell they have made an effort to refresh the building inside... More

I will definately book at this hotel again. The location was great (on the esplanade but not too close to all the noise), staff were friendly and the room was lovely, new and clean. 24hr reception is a bonus and a balcony from the living room and the bedroom was lovely with wonderful views of the ocean.

We often stay at the Cairns Plaza Hotel. It is a nice clean hotel with very reasonable room rates. Some rooms are motel rooms, but others have a small kitchenette which is very handy if on a budget. It has always been a clean hotel but a little dated, but on our last visit we found the rooms had been... More

Location excellent, easy walk to city centre, overlooks water and esplanade. As I was a solo traveller I expected to be put in some small little room on the ground floor at the back somewhere, I was very happily wrong , I was given a lovely clean refurbished room on the top floor. I also found the staff very friendly... More

Very clean after recent renovation and staff were friendly and accommodating. Only negatives were that there is no restaurant for dinner (only breakfast) and there is no sale of alcohol on site, otherwise highly recommended. Down side of the ocean view rooms is that the natives do get restless and noisy in the early hours of the morning.

Good location , took about 15 minutes to walk to the pier but also far away enough so you don't hear all the noise from the city center. No wifi in the room was kind of annoying though. Great staff, super helpful.

It's important to notice the date on rates when reading them. I noticed a lot of the poorer ratings were years ago and the hotel had a recent overhaul and the rating generally were better. First arriving they held my bags until my room was available and suggested to me some great options for diving and other excursions. These were... More

Stayed just one night as we had an early flight from Cairns airport. Great location, just an easy 15 minute drive to the airport. And a short walk to the shops and restaurants on the Esplanade. The room was obviously just redone, so everything was clean and fresh, very nice.
