We just returned from a trip through Fiji and Australia and I just had to write a review on the Novotel in Cairns. It was a first-class hotel with courteous and friendly staff. The hotel is only a couple of blocks from the Esplanade (a boardwalk that runs along the waterfront). Although there is no beach in Cairns (it's mostly... More

Great location, on edge of CBD only 10 mins walk from bus station and taxi rank. Easy walking distance to sea, boat trips to Barrier Reef, shopping centre and railway station. Airport only 10/15 minutes by taxi. Large bedroom with 2 double beds. Outdoor swimming pool. Bats in trees in hotel grounds are a great spectacle at dusk.

Stayed at the Oasis for 5 nights -front desk staff helpful and friendly & the tours booking agent during the week was spectacular. Room with 2 double beds was adequate, but the bed was horrible and pillows hard and headache-making. Room wasn't cleaned properly, never adequate towels and there were ants crawling up the walls. Noticed the ants because I... More

We spent 9 days at the hotel as part of a world trip. On arrival the reception staff couldn't be more helpful, and our room was clean and well appointed. The location near the sea front , restaurants and facilities was excellent. At the hotel there is also a guest laundry as well as underground car park. Easy to get... More

Arrived early evening after full day of travelling. Staff were superb - even parked our car for us. The hotel facilities are first class, comfy room and a comprehensive breakfast selection - and the location - right behind the promenade is excellent. Woul definitely stay again

We only stayed for one night on the way to Japan early this year and I wouldn't stay again. The check-in staff were not helpful and quite rude, not a good start to our trip. The room was average for a hotel room, 2 double beds, tiny balcony. We decided to go for a swim and there was only 2... More

We stayed at the Novotel for 3 nights in December. The reservation staff were very accomodating and we want to specially thank, Mr. Tomoya, for sending us a bottle of sparkling wine for our anniversary and a box of wonderful chocolates.
