Great apartment overlooking Esplanade and sea. Not too far from nearest bars and restaurants but a fair walk down to the reef terminal where most of the GBR trips go from. If you're a light sleeper noise might be an issue due to there being no double glazing and Cairns is a busy place! Otherwise a great stay.

The hotel is located on the Esplanade opposite an excellent playground and cafe. Easy to walk to the shops and restaurants of central Cairns, about 10 mins walk to the harbour for Barrier reef trips. We ate breakfast in the cafe opposite as the hotel was expensive. The bedrooms were spacious, clean and comfortable, with balconies, fridges and kettles. The... More

Terrific location - within walking distance of restaurants and shops. Walk out into the Esplanade boardwalk fir a lovely stroll into town. Opposite Muffys playground which is fantastic for families. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Room was lovely and very clean. I would stay here again anytime.

Excellent location, friendly staff,spotlessly clean. The swimming pool was great and would be even better in summer than winter when I was there. Very good value continental breakfast for $9-50. Cooked breakfast also available if you wanted it. Rooms cleaned daily with nice fresh towels etc. Room fridge a decent size so could store food and drinks.

The motel was clean, good quiet location close to the city centre. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were polite and efficient. Breakfast facilities were excellent. Only quibble was the lack of lighting in the rooms. I would use them again.

Not only was this the most reasonably priced hotel out of 3 that we stayed at during our visit to Cairns/Port Douglas, it was also the best one. Clean, great views from balcony and close to the esplanade.

Travelling from Canada, via Sydney, we just wanted something simple, but clean and close, on a budget, and wow did Cairns Plaza ever deliver. Dispensing with the negative first, the cable is limited and little access to ice and the pool was very cool, but these are minor inconveniences given that you are in Cairns to enjoy the scenery and...
