We stayed at the Fig Tree for 4 nights in Feb 08. We both loved the place, the staff were very friendly, and the hotel itself had a quaint, homely feel all around, especially in the lovely pool, restaurant and Irish bar area. The bar has a great atmosphere, and is the perfect place to unwind after a long day... More

Charming, low-key place, with great staff, a great restaurant, and spacious rooms. A little far from Cairns itself, and one of the pools is very exposed to the main road, but altogether a nice place. I very much recommend the Malibu Splice Cocktail from the Irish bar, and the restaurant.

This hotel is probably one of the best in Carins. It is small and quite basic but the staff are very friendly and helpful. The pool area is small but very clean and grounds are brilliant, giving you the feeling you are outside. Theres no need to pre-book tours, the staff can arrange all the tours for you on arrival....

Stayed at the Fig Tree for 2 nights and was presently surprised. The location is a nice 15 minute stroll along the sea front to Cairns central which is fine in the morning. We didn't use the pool, however ate one night at the restaurant patio which was very good and had lovely staff. The rooms themselves are very clean... More

I just stayed at the Figtee last week for 2 nights while in Cairns. The hotel is very basic but it is clean, located near the airport and not too far from town. I found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful and having a pint in Willie McBrides bar was very nice indeed. If you are looking for... More

We stayed at the Fig Tree Lodge for five days, and enjoyed it very much. The staff are friendly, our room was spacious, quiet, modern, and clean. Our room had a mini-fridge (handy for cold drinks and breakfast snacks) and good air-conditioning. There's a small pool onsite and restaurant and bar. The hotel is several blocks from the main town... More
