Stayed for 3 nights, found thanks to Tripadvisor - inexpensive I think it was under $100 per night, right downtown Cairns, close to everything walking. Across the street from grocery Woolworths, lots of small souvenier shops and restaurants around. Walking distance (about 10 mins) to the Lagoon swimming pool and to the harbour from where the reef boat trips depart.... More

Not bad for a cheap one night stopover. It was clean and the staff were friendly. The single bed wasn't real comfy and it is shared bathroom down the hallway. Included brekky was fine. Would stay again

We stayed 4 nights at the Hides and were really impressed at the value for money.A simple breakfast true-but it was fine for us and the location was just fantastic-close to everything.The down side of that is that some of the rooms can be noisy.When we asked about changing our room, we were given a room on the 2nd floor...

Stayed here for 2 nights either side of a liveaboard dive trip. We had a heritage room. Both rooms were very comfy and the aircon was really welcome as the bathrooms and non aircon areas could get rather warm. The room had everything we needed for a very nice stay. We had breakfast both mornings and it was very nice... More

We managed to get a cheap deal via the information site at late notice after leaving the awful Globetrotters hostel (see my review!). This hotel is well managed by full time reception staff, you get free breakfast (which oddly includes pots of noodles, who wants these for breakfast?) which is between 6:30 - 9am and the air conditioning in your...

Hides Hotel is located on Lake St. in Cairns. It's a quick walk to the Marina. I paid $60 per night for a room with two single beds, shared bath and including breakfast (cereal, toast, juice, eggs, noodle soup). The building is a bit older and the furniture is dated, but you can't go wrong for the price. Internet area... More

We (family of 3) stayed in hides hotel for three nights. Our room had three beds without any view. Fresh towels and toiletries were provided everyday, but no full housekeeping service. The Free Breakfast is adequate (one of few hotels providing it).

We stayed 4 nights in February and would describe Hides Hotel as good honest Aussie accommodation. We had a room on the 2nd floor without a view and it was quiet and clean. We could get fresh towels when needed and toiletries were provided. Breakfast was a continental affair with toast, cereals, noodles, eggs, juice,coffee etc. Not much choice but... More

We weren't expecting much from the reviews but it turned out so much better. We asked for a quiet room in the new part upstairs when booking on line and got exactly that. No frills and a bit worn and they don't make your bed, but good tv, iron and board, fridge, safe and tea making facilities. Breakfast was a... More

Stayed in February 2014 for 2 nights in the refurbished part of the hotel in a standard double room. Room was nice and spacious, clean and a comfy bed. Aircon worked well although was situated on one wall right next to one side of the bed- so it got quiet cold if you were sleeping on that side. Fridge looked... More
