Excellent location excellent value 5 mins from main drag on of cairns. All staff were most helpful. Bed were great. View was amazing. Couldnt ask for a better place to stay for the price. Extremely comfortable place to go. Only negitive was the tv size and it didnt swivel so couldnt really get a clear view from the main bed.

The location of this hotel is excellent with shopping centres, the marina, the esplanade, many many restaurants, etc. no further than 15 minutes unless you walk super slow. There is a great children's playground right across the street from the hotel on the promenade. The room was very comfortable but stuck in the 80s and in desperate need of an... More

Close to the city center (Esplanade), yet distant enough to keep the noises away and encourage you to take a nice walk along the coast-side, near the coast-side yet far enough to enjoy the sights and take a nice walk around the Esplanade market - this defines Cairns Plaza Hotel. The city itself being so small the hotel appears suddenly... More

I was very impressed with the inside of the room (also had the balcony!!!). It was right next to the path to walk on that led to the restaurants, bars, etc. The real kicker was the staff. Super friendly!!! One example is they helped us coordinate the times with this bungy jumping business (because they were late picking us up).... More

Roomy and clean room overlooking the ocean. Beautiful sunrise view I got every morning. My room was 606. Was an amazing stay indeed. Only 5 mins walk to pubs, restaurants etc yet still get the quietness.

The Cairns Plaza is perfectly located - on the Esplanade in a quiet location and easy walking distance to downtown and the pier. The refurbished rooms are nice. However, a table and comfortable chairs on the balconies would be a welcome addition. My sister and I had a good laugh when I went to make a cup of tea ....... More
