The Chifley Plaza is an excellent CBD Hotel. Clean efficient rooms that were impeccably cleaned. Friendly helpful Reception. The cafe on the Ground Floor was great with several Restaurants within minutes walk. We were able to walk to everywhere we needed to be and enjoy the beautiful North Queensland weather. Excellent Hotel, great Value and superb Location

Always greeted with a smile and quick chat with staff .Its walking distance to Cafes and clubs and we always get a park easy. Complimentary shampoo and body-wash adds a nice touch and the continental breakfast included in the price makes it a great affordable place to stay.

We really just wanted somewhere with aircon, a bed and shower as we were stopping overnight on our way home. We were told $139 for a double room when we asked at reception yet booking.com had it for $89. Lucky we'd had a look prior to arriving otherwise we would probably have paid the extra $50 being so tired. $89... More

Was only here for one night only thankfully. Rooms are dreary and very small with too much dark furniture. Tried to let some light in but when I tried to raise the brown blind I ended up covered in dust! Shower area was good. Breakfast was served in a makeshift characterless room. Breakfast itself was quite good but could not... More

Reception are very friendly and helpful, there is no car parking and no restaurant for dinner. The rooms are satisfactory, not sure I would stay here again. There are restaurants within walking distance

Stayed there on a business trip. Positives - location, smiles at the front desk, ok room with lots of storage. Negatives - bad cleaning of rooms, website and tv in reception says they have a restaurant/cafe which is not right, pool underground not heated(very cold).

Stayed here one night in a newly outfitted room which was comfortable and well appointed, albeit a bit small, but good for the rate I was charged which included breakfast. Be aware that the public areas - hallways, lifts, foyer etc) are not air conditioned...so in summer you walk from your air conditioned room out into a hot stuffy hallway.... More

Check in was smooth, the lady was helpful in recommending local eateries. The hallways and lobby... More

Very comfortable and clean. The shower was so good I didn't want to get out. Reasonably priced and included continental breakfast. I paid an extra $8 for a cooked breakfast which was good. There is no onsite parking which is annoying but there is designated parking nearby for $15 per night. Good position in the city and only one block... More
