Stayed here for one night in June. Room was quite large perhaps a little dated but still well maintained. It is a bit of a walk into Central Cairns but easily done. I was there on a stop over for work so didn't get to thoroughly check the hotel out but it seemed like a good place to stay if... More

This hotel in on the 4-lane highway into Cairns. It is 10-15 minutes drive (and a parking fee) away from the nice waterfront restaurants. It is not luxurious and most definitely not 4-star yet we paid the same price as a 4-star hotel on the waterfront. The management were rude-both on the evening we checked in and they were snippy...

The hotel is nice, clean and tidy. The reception lady Judy was extremely friendly, helpful and efficient in all matters. The breakfast is simple but nice, delicious and well cooked. Overall impression is excellent, that should be contributed by the good management team.

We had a view of the harbour which was a bonus, the room was spacious and the king bed was extremely comfortable. Staff were very helpful and booked one of our tours for us and the restaurant prices were reasonable and... More

We recently spent two days at Cairns Sheridan as we were in Cairns on family matters. We always stay at this hotel because of the friendly, welcoming atmosphere. We were remembered at check-in. A minor issue with the TV was solved promptly. Our room was delightful. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

Situated a couple of kms away from town centre but the walk in along the esplanade is lovely. Staff very friendly. Hotel clean but a little tired. Pool not worth talking about. Breakfast good if a little limited.Recommended.

Apart from great food, and a very comfortable room for a total of seven nights, the exceptional personal attention by all the staff stands the Sheridan above most five star hotels we have stayed at. Our friends who also stayed for the same period agree whole heartedly. We have travelled over Europe, Asia, Canada and the US over the last... More
