We booked this as a last minute thing. We felt that although the room was OK, it was very dated and the decor was very 60s. There was a bit amount of dust on the shutters. We were also charged for our calls... However, the owner was friendly. It was about 25-30mins walk from Cairns centre so we got a... More

We booked a one night stay here at the last minute (when we realised that the ridiculous closure of the Port Douglas to Cairns road for a triathlon meant that we couldn't make it back from Port Douglas for our flight otherwise). The staff were very friendly and offered to move us from a second floor room to the ground... More

If you are looking for a cheap and cheerful room with a pool, this is the place. The rooms are a bit tired, but generally clean. The pool is great and the staff are very friendly. The bus is good that takes you to the city, but can get busy on the mid morning bus. ALso there is no 4pm... More

The service was superb. we had no trouble with the management and it was exactly as they described. the rooms were very comfortable and everything was there so you could do whatever it was very quiet and restful (peaceful) the location was a bit bad to go to town unless you enjoy a nice 20-30 minute walk the best thing...

Very cute, spotlessly clean, well-equipped little hotel mini-apartment. We were delighted to have a washer and dryer in our suite. The managers were extremely pleasant and helpful. Two small problems: First, a backpackers' hostel was located behind the hotel where our room was facing and there was a noisy party going on there one night; second, oddly enough there are... More

The photo we went by when booking looked enticing, was reasonably priced and it appeared to offer all we wanted however sadly mistaken and won't ever stay, or recommend others, stay there. The pool was filthy, the bathroom less than desirable and the hidden highlight that is certainly not part of their marketing advertisement is the sleepless nights you'll endure... More

Palm Royale offers airport pick up service which is why we chose this hotel. It is not in the hot spot of Cairns but good for a quick stop over. Forget about breakfast. It has 2 supermarkets and food court next door. We recommend getting some fresh produce and sitting by the pool. Breakfast closes at 9AM. Would not give... More

This is a great hotel! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and very clean. I especially liked the two pools that were onsite. There are a few restaurants and a grocery store nearby. A shuttle bus going downtown leaves the hotel every hour. If you are coming back late at night cabs are to the... More

This was a great value if you are willing to not be by the main hub of the city. We love walking and seeing more of a city than just the main area, so this was idea for us. It is a 20-25 minute walk to the downtown/pier area, but cabs are easily accessible. Our room was more like a... More
