My wife and I recently stayed at Harbour Lights in Cairns. What a great location, right on the boardwalk in front of the harbour. Shops, cafes and restaurants are all within easy walking distance so unless you plan to explore the region a car is not necessary. Our unit was on the 9th floor and we had great views of... More

Great location and 30 seconds away from great barrier reef pick up. We booked through the 'boutique collection' (which was cheaper than going direct to the apartments themselves) but this meant the service desk was unable to help us with any enquiries, even providing us with toilet paper and shampoo. That being said, it was a great view (see picture)... More

Noisiest room I have ever stayed in, and I do around 70-100 hotel nights PA. Room faced Hilton and between the 2 hotels was a never-ending stream of coaches, buses, cars, taxis, delivery vehicles and mowers/leaf blowers. Room 317 to be avoided. Quality of interior and fittings was never-the-less good and the location excellent.

You just can't beat the location along the boardwalk. It is close to the shops, the restaurants and a great starting point for all adventures. We had a one bedroom apartment and having the cooking facilities is really a bonus. We could save on breakfast and then splurge a little more on dinner. We had the marina view and woke... More

I selected this hotel because of its rating and its location. It is at the southern end of the Esplanade where we spent most of our free day. So location was perfect. The unit was first class, roomy, self contained and my 2 key requirements, bed comfort and hot water consistency were met. The staff were also helpful. I wanted... More

Stayed here a couple of years ago and was pleasantly surprised that it is still in good condition - rooms are a little small, but very clean and well maintained. Only downside is finding a decent breakfast - plenty of places in town, but limited choice nearby.

Thank you for your great review. We're pleased you were able to come back to the hotel and found it as enjoyable as you had in the past. Our top breakfast suggestion is Pullman Cairns International, located a short walk from the hotel. They offer a full buffet that receives great feedback. More
