We had a nine night stay at the Pacific Hotel Cairns during early July. Our room was on the ninth floor and had a beautiful view out over Cairns Harbour a block away.
The motel is centrally located and within easy walking distance of all Cairns CBD attractions. Being on a busy corner meant that there was some traffic noise, but certainly not enough to disrupt our stay. The room was large with a very comfortable bed, although the bathroom was a little "room restricted" with a shower in the bath.
We only had a car for a few days, and had no trouble parking in the hotel car park which was free, off street, but not under cover. The staff were very helpful, both on the front desk and particularly on room maintenance, where our room was made up at various times throughout the day to suit our comings and goings.
The pool was well maintained, and provided an area where sun or shade could be accessed throughout the day. The downstairs restaurant was fantastic, and although maybe a little pricey, well worth visiting.
The free wifi worked well most of the time.
Overall, although not the most modern hotel in Cairns, it's central location and general level of good maintenance make this one worth staying in for a short or extended visit.
