Friendly and convenient place to stay. A 10 minute walk along the Esplanade to the town center and the marina. Lovely pool and barbecue area to be able to make the most of the day. Was able to have family over for dinner. Rooms were clean and tidy with everything that I needed. Would certainly stay there again when next... More

I spent 9 days in several of the different rooms at this wonderful guest house. Each room was unique and beautifully appointed with homey decor, ensuite bathroom, flat screen TV, a fridge and basic kitchenette facilities. This amazing 'Queenslander' style home is located across the palm tree studded lawn from the famous 'esplanade' (a walkway that runs the length of... More

Very neat clean and tidy. An Art Deco Guest House, well looked after and rarely seen these days. Very helpful staff. Convenient for all tourist attractions. I loved the newly finished Portico area. Highly recommended and I will definitely visit again soon . Thank you Maggie for a lovely holiday.

Myself and 8 others stayed at the Floriana for 5 nights in July 2014. We all had a wonderful stay here and would definitely return in the future plus recommend to other travellers. I had a very spacious ground floor room complete with ensuite bathroom, kitchen and close proximity to the pool and BBQ. Floriana is not your average guesthouse... More

Large old queenslander house converted to guest house. Lots of character. Rooms are great value, clean and all have toilet and shower facilities. It's exactly like staying at your old grandma's house. The manager Maggie went above and beyond the call of duty several times during our stay with no complaint or rudnesss as some other reviews have mentioned. One... More

This guest-house is charming: clean, comfortable, full of character and reasonably priced. Maggie, who runs the place, is very helpful and a great source of information. An added bonus is that she's a pianist and enjoyed playing a few tunes for us to sing along to. She likes having musicians stay and was happy for our ukulele group to practise... More

This guesthouse was recommended by Lonely Planet, so I thought it would be a nice place to stay. I was horribly mistaken. After looking at the bedspread, with questionable stains all over it, I decided against getting underneath the sheets. After waking up in the morning (after a very uncomfortable attempt to get some sleep), I went to get something... More

This place was so nice. Maggie, the owner, is a really enthusiastic of Cairns and she manages the place since many years ago. The rooms are beautiful and with personality, not like the many other hotels of Cairns. They were clean, they also have a living room and a Kitchen with all the cutlery and tools, fridge, TV, I don't... More

Upon arrival the host showed annoyance at our presence, we were actually yelled at & insulted by the cleaner/ manager. Furthermore the place was unhygienic so filthy that I had to clean. Completely over priced after the rudeness would not even stay for free. Was a terrible experience ruined our trip.

Rude from the word go. Quick to take your money and then refuses refund, after you don't stay because of the place being very dirty and the horrible rudeness. They also go on peoples appearance and are quick to judge. Very unfriendly and will put a dampener on any holiday. Biggest disappointment in all my years of travelling. Please avoid... More
