I booked the cairns plaza for my friends birthday after reviewing the pictures on the website and booking an ocean view suite. Unfortunutly when we arrive the hotel was not as advertised, appeared dated, not clean and just generally not what we expected for the price we paid! This hotel needs a revamp! The staff were all lovely and welcoming... More

My room was warm, cosy and clean with a lovely mountain view. Service was fantastic and the location was good - a nice 30 minute walk to town along the esplanade. I would definitely stay here again and would happily recommend this place to others! It's excellent value for money.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cairns Plaza Hotel. Most staff were very helpful and even the manager allowed us to store some items for a week even though we were not staying there upon our return to Cairns. Our 2nd level apartment was clean and tidy with a very comfortable bed. The lounge suite (fold out bed?) was not... More

Two of my friends and I stayed here a few weeks ago when we were traveling around Australia, and we absolutely loved the Cairns Plaza Hotel. I will admit that when we first pulled up outside we were a bit nervous, but as soon as we walked in, we were warmly greeted. We had just traveled for over 24 hours... More

3 motorcyclists heading for Cape York adventure ride, we found your Hotel a perfect launching pad to prepare for the Way Up, and an equally ideal base on return for clean up, R & R and easy access to services in a thriving city. We paid less than $50 each per night for a large shared room with secure parking... More

I should start this review by saying that initially I was booked into a private room next door at caravella backpackers for four nights. Needless to say that place was nothing short of horrendous!! I was paying £40 a night there and checked myself out after one night. I found the Cairns Plaza online and it was a bonus it... More

An excellent location, handy to the esplanade, with a great kid's playground opposite. Easy walking to all main amenities, but far enough out of the main street to be quiet. The staff are to be especially commended for their friendliness, especially Paolo who went out of his way for us, making bookings for other activities that we wished to do.... More
