The best bit about this hotel is the location but there are plenty of other hotels nearby which would surely be better. The hotel is described as being set back from the road - it's not and our room was right by the main road meaning we heard constant traffic noise. The pool and spa (as well as being too... More

The room was very basic & unappealing. Would give a miss next time. Stayed here overnight for good access to the airport for an early flight next morning. We unfortunately decided to forfeit a nights stay in Pt Douglas because of Cook Hwy closure due to the Triathalon so we were disappointed & annoyed before we got there .

We stayed in The Hotel Cairns for 8 nights. The Hotel is situated in an excellent location and very close to the popular Esplanade Board Walk. Shopping is only a few minutes walk, including all types of restaurants and a variety of different shops and markets. The room overall was very comfortable and very clean. The balcony wasn't worth going... More

Definitely not 4 star no hot water some days. Reported toilet runs water all day told to keep hitting button. Reported toilet second day told would be fixed immediately this did not happen. More like back packers accomodation. Breakfast food always cold. Few other tenants found alternate accomodation we were not lucky due to Iron Mann event on.

Its a small hotel, more like a villa, The proximity from the beach is the USP. The rooms are quite and nice, clean rooms. Centrally located to the CBD, close by shopping and restaurants. Nice parks nearby. They have a very small gym, located in the basement, Not really functional.

We stayed at the Hotel Cairns for one night and it was perfect for what we needed. It was set up beautifully in a sort of bungalow style with greens hanging from every direction. It made you feel like you were really in Australia, not just in some big corporation hotel. Only questionable thing to note was when we left... More
