We stayed with our 2 children in a room with 2 double beds. We found the room quite small with a musty smell. But apart from that everything else was nice. The pool was lovely we spent the best part of 2 days around it and ordered drinks and food for lunch at the poolside which was very nice. The... More

We chose this hotel after searching many others as it catered for all our needs. Close to the airport and a leisurely walk to the Esplanade and City Centre shopping. The rooms are spacious and have comfortable beds, they have the usual facilities but tend to lack storage space and no mini bar for your convenience. Some of the decor... More

Dear WayneAP, Thank you for your comments regarding your stay with us when you were in Cairns. I am pleased that you enjoyed the Palm spa as she is a real treasure. I have made a note regarding the lack of storage and the tired decor, this will be brought up when we have discussions regarding our next refurbishment programme.... More

Surprised that this hotel is on the accor list. When I checked in my room had flooded and had a bad smell so I had to be moved into something I can only describe as staff quarters out of the main building down the pathway next to the lifts and across from the gate to the pool so lots of... More

We stayed in the Novotel for a couple of nights over the winter period in July on a voucher and this was our experience: - Good size room with plenty of space. - Balcony had nice views of the mountains. The Cairns show happened to be on during the time we were there and we were able to view the... More

Had a great three days. Perfectly happy with the room, flexible housekeeping staff kindly fitted in around us. We kept coming across George on reception and were always so glad as there seemed to be nothing we could ask about that he couldn't help with. Only negative was that the kitchen need more staff for breakfast, too much expected of... More

Bottom of pool dirty, Carpet in room stained. Timber on outside of building starting to rot. Toilet bowl leaking on floor. Cairns great place in Australian winter. Good location Even at discounted rate not sure worth it. Draw your own conclusions.

We stayed at the Novotel in Cairns on a family trip to North Queensland. First and foremost, the pool is the standout, and that is why we chose this particular hotel. Overall, the hotel is in a great location, fabulous pool, nice rooms, average food and beverage, but uneven service. I'll go into more detail in terms of the rooms... More

I always enjoy staying at Novotels, Cairns was no exception, comfortable rooms, clean, modern and a fabulous pool. Beats going to the public man made beach with the masses of backpackers as the resort has a great man made beach in the pool. Location is great walking distance to the main strip as well as close walk to activity park... More

Great breakfast, nice rooms and beautiful swimming pool. What else could one ask for in a hotel besides a good staff. And, of course, they had a good staff as well. A nice place to spend a week. Enjoy!
