“Retro retreat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2006

Cairns is dominated by bland hotels, we can recommend Floriana as a creative alternative. It won't suit perfectionists but we like the excellent price, spacious rooms, traditional Queensland architecture, retro colours, and the quiet and friendly environment. We didn't find it hard to tolerate the considerable walk into town, the fact that our particular room only had fans and no air conditioning and the cracks and fading but you need to understand that its not a 5 star hotel nor is it trying to be one. Pictures on the Floriana Guesthouse website are accurate.
