Excellent hotel. Rooms are modern and spacious, includes all the facilities you could want. Restaurants, wifi and directly next to the marina for reef trips. Penthouse is the stand out with 2 floors. Tp floor has food elevator and dunk pool.

Stayed 1 night for business and whilst I had no problems I though my view would be better, nevertheless, the staff were friendly and the room was clean. The only negatives were quality of sleep (explained below) and that I arrived at 2pm and my room wasn't ready (waited about 15min). Didn't really see any benefit of being a Gold... More

We stayed here only one night as part of a group booking and were not able to take full advantage of what was not merely a room with bathroom but a whole apartment. The views were great from the 8th floor but the one big drawback was the light flooding in all night. The blinds were white and transparent and... More

Cairns harbour lights is in a handy yet quiet location. You can walk to the shops , restaurants, marina, etc . We booked a 2 bedroom apartment and found ourselves allocated just one floor above reception. Booking mix up so no harbour views as expected. Not ideal with a huge spotlight just under our balcony. Yes there was block out... More

This is our favourite accor hotel in Cairns due to its amazing location, apartments and very reasonable parking charges. Staff are always friendly for what ever requests you have. You need to remember that most of the one bedroom apartments only have a kitchenette so we now bring a little portable oven which covers anything I may need to cook.... More

My fiancée and I stayed here for 5 nights in July 2014. We upgraded online for the larger executive rooms on the 9th floor and I think it was worth the difference. It looked out to the south with a 50% water view. I would try to get a view a little further around to the north and east next... More

Friendly staff always greet you with a smile. They recognise return visitors and always happy to have a genuine chat. 1 bedroom apartment on 11th floor with most spectacular view up the inlet and a perfect balcony for having a quiet drink and watching activity on the water - including around the cruise terminal. Apartments are very well appointed. Great... More
