I’ve been wanting to give a hotel top marks for ages, and I nearly did… close…. Oh, so close…. I’m a Cairns local these days. I live in a share house just a couple of blocks from The Hotel Cairns and knew they had a locals deal which equates to a free $100 voucher for use in the hotel restaurant/bar... More

We stayed at The Hotel Cairns last night and it was fabulous. The service was excellent, the restaurant 1st class and the room was immaculate. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. Oh I forgot to mention that the rate was brilliant. It was great thank you and we will be back. Vicki (Port DOuglas)

We had a very unexpected child free night on the weekend and called The Hotel Cairns on the off chance they had a locals room available. They did! The night started on a positive as the staff remembered us from previous visits and we were given a warm welcome. Our room was clean and nicely decorated with decor that suits... More

We spent here 2 nights with a really good deal: 100AUD per night with 100AUD voucher to spend for dinner (yes, hard to believe). And the food was fantastic. The place is well mantained and with all the commodities. If there is a but, is that some of the rooms on the 1st floor has only windows to the main... More

Very nice, clean and spacious rooms with a large balcony. We stayed here just for a night but had a great experience. Reception is very small and I can imagine that the hotel is not very easy for people in a wheelchair. You have to lift your suitcase a few flights of stairs before you enter the hall and elevator....

We hadn't planned on staying somewhere as grand as this wonderful white hotel, just one block back from the Esplanade, but it looked so appealing that I walked in to ask about prices. We had a huge room with a private balcony, for $145 a night which included an excellent breakfast. There is a good pool, and unusually for a... More

We booked this hotel for an extra night as it was part of the diving booking experience and we had arrived a day early. We are so glad we did!! There is nothing that dissapointed us, and we found it excellent. Although a busy hotel, we found the layout of the rooms made us feel like we away from it... More

Room was clean, I particularly liked the mirror light. - The TV had many channels, language vary from English, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. - Location is good, near the sea and the centre of Cairns....

As a local I have enjoyed staying here on numerous occasions. I enjoy the $100 special offer. The $100 room was not available until March so I upgraded. This was annoying. I was told when I arrived that I could have $100 of drinks at the bar but if I wanted to eat hat would take all of my credit... More
