We got an excellent dinner, bed and breakfast package here which made it such a good deal. The pool was excellent, nice and deep and I love those lagoon-style pools set in tropical gardens like this one. The restaurant was lovely and had indoor and outdoor seating. We found the staff great and the hotel had the atmosphere of a... More

FIG TREE LODGE IS HORRIFIC W/o question the worst hotel/lodge of any I've stayed in over 20 years and nearly 80 countries of travel. They are cutting corners all over the place: nobody answer front desk phone at night/morning, told to get ice from bar downstairs, refrigerators w/ warm setting locked in place; old fans/appliances, and not a great location....

Nice apartment. Travelled with a friend, while a little away from the main area nice location. Staff were very friendly & organised activities for us. Irish Bar was good for a relaxing evening. Nice food served in a nice atmosphere.

We didn't want to stay down on the Esplanade so we were happy with the location though it is a little out of the way. It has a nice pool area and a great Irish Pub with some excellent food and beer choices. The staff there were really great and we were especially impressed with Dave who worked in the... More

This hotel is located between the airport and downtown (10 minutes max). Rooms are standard but noisy mainly because of the road. The staff s really nice and available. They booked us a fabulous cruise to the reef. Breackfast is also good.

This place seemed to suffer a bit of an identity crisis. Was more a pub with rooms rather than rooms with a pub. The first night our room was only a few feet from the deck and we were kept awake until the small hours with the sounds of a pub in full swing. Next day we asked for another... More

Stayed here for one night - our flight arrived late at night so we needed a base for one night in Carins before we headed on. We booked through a travel agent. The front of the hotel is impressive - a very smart lobby area. However, the rest of the hotel doesn't seem to match. Our room was large, and... More

igtree is a standard hotel, the employees are friendly and helpful and the rooms are good, compared to the price. This is definitely a 'you get what you pay for' hotel, but in a positive sense. Beneath the hotel is a Irish bar and restaurant. According to some locals, it is pretty famous in the Cairns region, although we never... More
