Had already prebooked a room but when I arrived and checked in, there was a musty damp smell in the room. Told reception and they promptly moved me to another room. Great service. The location is perfect as it has easy access to the boardwalk and also esplanade with heaps of shops and eateries nearby.

Very comfortable and quiet room. Nothing flash or luxurious, but perfectly adequate for our needs. Good housekeeping service. Would be happy to stay again. In house literature advises wifi only available in lobby, but it is in fact available in every room. Lots of places to eat nearby, just ask staff which direction to go in as we walked two... More

Harbor Lights was a very good experience. I was a bit nervous after reading some reviews and my initial entry to my apartment. My complimentary internet was not working and I had a slight ant problem near the stove. I must say the maintenance crew was awesome. Gary fixed my internet and ant problem within an hour of checking in.... More

Have stayed in multiple Hotels in Cairns, CBD & Northern Beaches. Due to family function in CBD I chose this place for location. Its right next to Reef Marina (tour boats to reef or the inlet), 100 metres to Casino and a short walk to the Esplanade precinct, with some good restaurants/cafes directly below the apartments. While I prefer the... More

Stayed in an apartment. Room was clean but carpet definitely needs a good clean if not a good spot clean. Air conditioning very noisy even on low. Walls also need a spot clean in places. Check in receptionist was friendly. However, be aware that when you give your credit card details they take a $100 deposit as a pre authority.... More

I'm currently staying at Cairns Harbour Lights which is located right on the marina of Cairns. I had really high hopes after reading the reviews for this hotel but it's only quality is the location. The staff weren't too friendly on check in but I was appreciative that we were able to check in early. I requested a high rise... More

Superbly located - a very comfortable room with a balcony overlooking the harbour. We had a studio apartment and it suited our needs. There is no restaurant at this aparthotel but plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. We stocked the fridge with breakfast requirements and had dinner at various restaurants. Wifi is free in the lobby where there are tea... More

Stayed in a room that had full kitchen, lounge etc. Large room and well maintain and very clean I stayed on the 2nd floor and my view was over a park, not the harbour. Plenty of restaurants nearby for breakfast and dinner Central to CBD and casino (open from 9am!!) Aircon was a little noisy but I was so tired... More
