I spent two nights here in an ocean view suite after a multi-day dive trip. For the price, it is very spacious: bedroom, living room, and mini-bar area with large fridge, microwave, sink, and silverware, etc. I believe the living room includes a sofa bed. The bedroom was very large with a full-size closet. The bathroom was a bit worn:...

We loved this hotel. The price was very reasonably. Rooms are big and have balconies, so you can see the ocean, The staff is very friendly and helpful. Everything is clean, well kept. They have a nice pool. It is 15 minutes walk thru the beautiful park along the Esplanade and boardwalk at the water to the Barrier Reef cruises...

It had a mini fridge with complementary tea and coffee, small popper carton of milk and some pre-packaged cookies with was nice to see and have.

The hotel is really nice. The rooms are really confortable and clean. Staffs are kind and polite. I stayed in a room with sea view but we couldn't actually see it. If you stay on uper levels I think it's better. Delicious breakfast! Highly recommend!

We were concerned when we first entered because the lobby is a bit bland and off putting, but the rest of the hotel is nothing Like that. The room was very nice. Styled in 70s mod, it was very comfortable and the AC worked great (we were there on stunningly hot days).

The suite was clean and comfortable and even had dishes and cutlery to use. The view was beautiful and a short walk along the Esplanade to restaurants, etc. They have laundry which was helpful although it does cost a few dollars.

We thought the location of this hotel on the esplanade just across a waterpark with hours of fun activities for the whole family was just great. It was a short stroll to everything else too. The rooms were extra spacious and the staff were friendly and accomodating

We liked the location of the Cairns Plaza Hotel which was walking distance along the Esplanade to many shops, the casino and overlooked the water. We were a little concerned about going out on the balcony however as the railing seemed a bit rickety and being on the sixth floor we did not feel secure. The rooms, however, were clean...

Recently spent 3 nights here - it was a very clean, comfortable room with a nice balcony and view of the water. They have a nice small pool that was very welcome after a long hot day out and about. It's an easy walk along the Esplanade to the area with all the restaurants and shops and not too far...

“ There is no view unless you take a suite.We were given the handicap room. The location is close to the waterfront and you can walk the length of the waterfront and is not far from the loads of waterfront eating joints. The staff is good, smiling and helpful. Cairns overall is expensive to live and eat. There was a deluge of Chinese tourists due to some Chinese festival. Seems like we were in China. ”
