We spent 3 nights last week at the Shangri-La in Cairns. Having been told it was our anniversary, they upgraded us to a huge suite with a panoramic view of the city and the marina. The bed was great and the bath large and luxurious. We also had access to full breakfast and afternoon drinks at the Horizon Club. The... More

Stayed here several times, if you can afford it the club rooms are fantastic real value with access to the club lounge. Views over marina very nice. Do not be bothered by proximity to promenade, noise is minimal.

My partner and I have stayed here for our 10th year anniversary. The location of the hotel is perfect as it is very close to the Esplanade, Reef Terminal and great restaurants. The staff at the reception were wonderful and very accommodating. Our room is spacious and clean, bed is comfy but the place is a little dated. The breakfast... More

this is a wonderful venue for conferences or a weekend away. Close to the activity in town and with wonderful ocean and mountain views. The staff are consistently welcoming and friendly. I have stayed here many times over the years and have been impressed each and every time.

We took the standard room, and found it was clean and comfortable with all the basic necessities. The hotel is very well located - directly opposite the reef fleet terminal and close to markets etc for dining/shopping. Cut one star because it definitely did not seem like a 5 star, barely seemed to make it to the 4 star grade.... More

Firstly this hotel has the best location in Cairns. Next to Marina, best restaurants, bar and 5 minutes to all amenities. What more could we want. The Horizon Club... More

The Hotel is in a fantastic location at the marina where all the boats are located for trips to the Great Barrier Reef. The amenities are outstanding and the staff were wonderful to us, especially the maids who looked after our room. The restaurant at the hotel is great and we especially enjoyed the breakfast.

Nice location, not in central cairns but close enough to boutique shopping and upmarket restaurants. Leads straight out to the marina so as the sun sets you get a very nice view. The room was clean but a wee bit dated, very 80s vibe to the hotel. That said staff were pleasant and happy to help where they could.

Lovely hotel- beautiful rooms with amazing views. We have a Club room and was worth the additional cost. Drinks and canapés from 5-7pm. Drinks all day. Friendly staff and the best pillows. I've attached a photo with view from our balcony.
