Situated on the Cairns Boardwalk this is a great place to stay. More of a condo than a hotel it has all facilities - cooking, full size fridge washing machine and dryer. Large living area and good sized bedrooms. Only one bug the key cards can be a bit temperamental. Overall a wonderful 3 days and could've stayed a lot... More

Most enjoyable stay, staff were great! The location is very good, right next to the wharf (Finger A for Reef Trips), surrounded by good restaurants. We had a view over the river and the mountains in the distance. Hard to fault at the WOTIF price of $105 per night. Would stay there again if returning to Cairns

A fabulous hotel just next to the harbour, just near restaurants. The location is completely amazing. The hotel is just lovely - comfortable, clean, quiet and the very friendly. I'd stay here anytime. Just lovely.

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

Thank you for your great review, we are pleased you enjoyed your brief stay with us. You'll be pleased to know that we are in the process of a refurbishment which will see our bedroom blinds be replaced with blockout curtains. We hope to see you back at the hotel in the future. 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
