friendly helpful staff and very clean modern facility. Easy walk to the restaurants and the city centre. Booking facilities for tours and most will pick up at the door. Our room on the sixth floor was a good size and away from noisy traffic. Strong, fast and free wi-fi connection is always a bonus when away from home.

We enjoyed our stay at the Cairns Plaza. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The location was great! We were able to walk to restaurants, lagoon, pier, and shops. We would stay there next time we are in the area.

Good location- close enough to main shops and restaurants, but not noisy. Spacious room. Clean and tidy. Excellent shower pressure. The shower drain was however blocked and took a while to drain. Also, the design of the bathroom made it difficult to enter. The door ironically blocks the entrance once it is open. If you were on the large side... More

Cairns was one of our best holidays. Although we spent a short time there we loved every moment. The hotel is very well kept with good breakfasts. The hotel staff went out of their way to help us and to make our stay comfortable. The hotel was just across the road from the children's play park which has wet and... More

Great room and location. Sorry about the $100 taken from credit card upfront then having to wait 7 to 10 days for it to be returned into the account, this is not usual for hotels, most just take a copy of your credit card as security.

We, once again enjoyed our holiday at Cairns Plaza. The views from the top floor balconies (yes you get two!) are fabulous. Easy walking distance to the night markets and the esplanade, pool and weekend markets. Staff very friendly and housekeeping done daily. Will stay here again.

We found our short stay pleasant, clean and the staff were great. Great value for your money and great location. Just be mindful that if you book a family room, the couch is the 2nd bed. Great brekkie

We enjoyed our hassle-free stay. Very friendly and helpful staff. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed. Location along the esplanade/boardwalk from the busy end of town is great. Sub-optimal original building design means there is zero natural ventilation - aircon is needed - which is a shame, but a very common problem in the world of pre-fab... More
