“Nice place - Quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

This place doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but the staff are very friendly, very helpful, and absolutely reliable. When they say they'll take care of it, they do!
The rooms are rather small, but adequately appointed and clean. The amenities are spare, but certainly more than we needed. The included breakfast was simple but ample - and a real time and wallet saver!

I didn't realize there would be a shared bathroom down the hall so I was a little surprised. But all in all I thought it was a great little place to stay. The ladies who worked at the front desk were super nice and very helpful. The place was clean and I thought the free breakfast was pretty good. The internet was a little bit spotty, and I'd say that would be my primary complaint. Otherwise, I thought the place was pretty good and certainly a good value for the money.
Centrally located, close to the downtown area, I walked to the wharf in the morning. If I come back to Cairns I would stay here again.

This was a nice quiet little place. It is operated by a husband and wife with help from her sister. They are all kind of elderly but so cute, bubbly and great personalities. I really enjoyed chatting with them each morning as I tried to figure out what I was going to do for the day. They were incredibly helpful with respect to finding tours and figuring out what to spend my time doing in Cairns.

The hotel is clean and quiet. My room was huge!!. The bed was quite comfortable. Free wifi. you have to do something to get free wifi though. I cannot remember. The wifi was a bit here and there. Sometimes it was quite strong and you could upload tons of pics and other times it was even too weak to download short emails. There is free wifi downtown.

Breakfast was included. Cereals, toast, milk, coffee, and all the vegemite you can stomach lol.

Apparently, they have rooms where you have to share a washroom with other people. Those are quite cheap for obvious reasons.

I've stayed in a few spots in cairns, and this is central without breaking the bank. The added value of breakfast can't be understated in a tourist city! Stayed for one night and extended from there to four nights staff were helpful both by email and in person and I loved there BBQ area, made fora nice change from formal meals

Room Tip: C block is much more upmarket but I stayed in b and it was fine for me, but I don't spend much t...

Cairns Queens Court

What a let down, we stayed there for a 6 day holiday trip to Cairns. They have a three section property A, B and C.
C is the new building the one they use for advertising on their web site.
FALSE ADVERTISING
A and B is old and lacks modern facilities, tiled floors the beds old and they slide across the floor. En suite the shower floods the small room. Would not recommend anybody to this hotel.

Room Tip: not recommended

The incredibly friendly and helpful staff make this a great place to stay. They gave advice on places to go and appropriate tours, and booked them for us. Everything is clean and well kept, and the breakfast buffet, though basic, is good - because it starts early enough for days when you are off on a 7am tour and finishes late enough for a lie in on other days! The walk into the city by the Esplanade boardwalk or straight along the main road takes only 15 minutes. We also walked in the other direction to the beautiful Botanic Gardens, although there's also a bus stopping right outside to get you there, or to the northern beaches. The hotel sent the minibus to pick us up from the airport, but it's not far and going back the taxi cost only $20. Try the quirky Flying Monkey cafe opposite for coffee or something to eat, including vegan and gluten free choices, (but go before the high school students come out for their lunch!

Room Tip: Rooms in Block A are noisy on a Saturday night.
