We had problems with the tv so someone came up to fix it within 5 minutes of ringing them (and this... More

Cairns Harbour Lights is a great place to stay when you want to be close to everything in the city. I was on the 2nd floor and thought there may be noise from below, but it was all good I did not hear anything !!!!

Really enjoyed our four-night stay here. Location could not be better as it is right on the harbour and boardwalk. You could walk anywhere downtown in a matter of minutes. Our 10th-floor room had a nice deck and offered a great view of the water. Watch for all the bats that fly by at dusk. It's an amazing sight. Our... More

The positives first - great location, pleasant staff (especially the lady who checked us in), and the one bedroom apartment was spacious, clean and modern. There is a nice pool to do a couple of laps in next to a very small gym, although it was too cold for the kids when they tried to use it. However, the room... More

On arrival I was greeted by very friendly and helpful staff that informed me that there had been a booking hiccup; however, offered me an upgraded room. The room was very comfortable and offered everything you would expect from a hotel of this caliber; very clean, practical layout and comfortable bed. The location is excellent as it is central to...

Couldn't ask for a better location, close to the shops, restaurants, boardwalk, activities. Service was only impeccable. The room we had had a kit he être, but with so many restaurants near by, who would want to cook for yourself. I would come back here.

Excellent location - on the waterfront with convenient access to boat tours for sightseeing and diving - would definitely stay there again. The self contained apartment allowed us to prepare our own food or alternatively we could eat out at one of the nearby restaurants.

We stayed here for 3 nights and definitely not disappointed. Staff went out of their way to help, and ensure everything was satisfactory. We got a good deal on Travel Zoo, but were not looked down upon, as have had experience with other accommodations. We had a balcony over looking the inlet, as opposed to the harbour, but still very... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location, close to the pier, great cafes / restaurants and the "city". The rooms are pleasant enough, and the hotel amenities are good - the pool is great, the gym handy and the BBQ area nice. The staff are excellent at servicing any request and I always felt welcomed.

Very polite and courteous staff, check in all good. Staff very accommodating allowing complimentary late checkout. Nice pool, gym, BBQ area is handy. Good security around hotel. Rooms are clean, new but quite sterile. Plain white paint on walls with minimal decor in the studio room. Tv is mounted high near the ceiling as the room is too narrow for... More
